COVID-19 Update

Grossmont College
Foster, Adoptive and Kinship Care Education Program

Dear Parents & Caregivers,

An update to the Order of the San Diego Public Health Officer effective June 19, 2020 continues to prohibit public or private gatherings unless otherwise specified in the Health Order. Based on this information, FAKCE will continue to only offer online Zoom classes for all of our classes and Resource Parent support groups. When the Public Health Order changes to allow in person classes, we will provide an update to our class schedule at that time. Hope you and your family and the children you care for are staying healthy and safe.

Sincerely, FAKCE Administration
