It’s summertime and there's still plenty of time to enjoy sunbathing and family vacations.
But before you know it, back-to-school season will begin and children will head to the store, parents in tow, to snatch up school supplies and the latest fashions.
Public schools in Fountain Valley are located within the Fountain Valley School District, as well as the Ocean View, Huntington Beach City and Garden Grove school districts. This year the first day of school is Wednesday, Sept. 5, except in the Garden Grove School District, which is Thursday, Sept. 6.
That leaves exactly 30 days of summer vacation left for most Fountain Valley children.
In the Fountain Valley School District there are seven public elementary schools: Roch Courreges Elementary, James H. Cox Elementary, Robert Gisler Elementary, William T. Newland Elementary, Isojiro Oka Elementary, Urbain H. Plavan Elementary, and Hisamatsu Tamura Elementary; three middle schools: Harry C. Fulton Middle School, Kazuo Masuda Middle School and Samuel E. Talbert Middle School; and Fountain Valley High School. Los Amigos High School is in Fountain Valley but part of the Garden Grove School District.
