Students need to come to school with their chromebooks charged each day. We do not have the continuous ability to charge chromebooks. Please help students remember to charge them overnight.

Testing season

Spring at school also means testing season is upon us. I have linked the testing schedule for Fairfield Elementary - your students will not take every assessment but it will give you an idea of when your student may be taking a test.
