Have you Moved?

Have you recently moved? If so, please call our office so we can change your address for our records and to be sure any summer and Back to School mailings get to you.

If your address is no longer a Fancher address, you will need to fill out School of Choice paperwork to stay at Fancher Elementary for the 2023-2024 School Year.

We want to ensure your child's enrollment and classroom placement for next year is not last minute and stressful for you. Please be sure to keep us updated throughout the summer. Leave us a message at 775-2230.

Pokemon Cards, Toys, and Electronics

Friendly reminder from our Student Handbook at the front of your student's agenda - toys, trading cards, and pokemon cards should be left at home. We want to make sure things are not lost or stolen at school - and we can best do this by leaving items home. pg. 3 of Handbook

Electronic Devices

Such as cell phones, iPods, cameras, tablets are strongly recommended to be left at home, they are not permitted on our playground or in a student's desk during the school day. If the objects are at school they need to remain safely tucked away in backpacks from 8:40am to 3:49pm.

Please be sure to call our front office when your student is absent 989-775-2230

Illness Reminders

For the health and safety of our staff and students - it is very important every morning families are screening their own child before sending them to school for the day.
  • Temperature of 100.4 degrees
  • Sore Throat
  • New uncontrolled cough causing difficulty breathing
  • Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain
  • New onset of severe headache, especially with fever

Please continue to communicate with your child's building of any new situations that affect your family by calling us at 989-775-2260 or emailing Mrs. Wendi Chaffin at

If your child is not feeling well and/or going to be absent, please call the school, and we will contact their teacher to let them know of the absence.

Please Label your Student's Items

We would love to see our lost & found items claimed, but also to keep the lost & found to a minimum. Families can help us by LABELING EVERYTHING!

Use a permanent marker to label your child's name on lunchboxes, school supplies, backpacks, water bottles, child's clothes (utilize the inside tags of sweatshirts, jackets, shoes, and snowpants). We will periodically check labels and post pictures of items to be claimed - check out the Fancher Facebook page.

Send an extra pair of clothes to stay in your student's locker, place in a ziplock bag or plastic grocery bag, label with their name.

Emergency Safety Drills

Last week students and staff practiced a tornado drill and did a great job moving to their shelter in place location.

During the school year, our buildings are obligated to practice at least 5 Fire Drills, 2 Tornado Drills and 3 Lockdown drills. At times, we do have our YSU Liason or other police officers from the Police Department assist in our drills. We cover with our students the locations of where to go for each drill, what to do during specific drills, and how to properly evacuate when it is needed. You can also find this information in your child's Handbook in the front of the student agenda.

I encourage you to check out our district website where we have information that pertains to our district school safety. Click here to get to the website.
