MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL OPHUS


Dear Fairview Families,


We hope your children enjoyed their morning of learning today and that you all have a relaxing weekend ahead! At our half day institute this afternoon, staff are collaborating with one another regarding instruction for both remote and hybrid learning and meeting together to analyze grade level data trends based on student performance on winter assessments. This time looking at data is so valuable as it allows us to highlight areas of strength in our instructional practices in addition to identifying goal areas to enhance. We appreciate having the time to engage in these productive and helpful meetings.


It is hard to believe that we have already completed four weeks of our hybrid/remote model of instruction. I wanted to give families a reminder that those students who are enrolled in a hybrid section should plan to come to school unless directed otherwise due to COVID symptoms, exposure or other illness. Staying home out of convenience is problematic for teachers and staff as it requires a different approach to planning to ensure materials are ready for students both in person and remotely. While we are happy to accommodate students who are required to stay home, we do ask that you plan to send your children to school rather than keep them home out of convenience. This will allow us to be most effective in meeting the needs of our students. Thank you for your help!


Looking ahead, please note that there is no school on Monday in observance of Presidents' Day. The final day of the second trimester is on Friday, February 19th and any parents who made a request to change learning models for the start of the third trimester will direct their children to make this change starting on Monday, February 22nd. Parents who have requested a change should have received a confirmation email from me yesterday. Have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Valentine’s Day!


Sincerely,


Dan Ophus

Fairview Principal
