MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL OPHUS
Dear Fairview Families,
It has been ten months since the last day we’ve had students on a larger scale in the building, and we cannot wait to see many of our students walk through our doors once again on Tuesday! There are several details related to this upcoming change that impact BOTH hybrid and remote learners that are outlined below. It is incredibly important for you as parents and guardians to read through these materials so that you are ready for next week. Please read the list below and contact us with questions as needed.
For hybrid learners, if you haven’t done so already, please watch this instructional video with your child so that you all know what to expect starting Tuesday.
Included in last week’s newsletter is a copy of the schedule we will use starting Tuesday along with other important information about next week. The schedule is changing for BOTH hybrid and remote learners. Please read last week’s newsletter if you haven’t already done so.
Information went out from the district yesterday about a required pre-screening using the Raptor online system that all families who are attending in person must fill out each day. Please plan to fill this out no later than 7:30 a.m. (AM hybrid assignments) or 12:00 p.m. (PM hybrid assignments). This email will go to all families. Remote families will have the option to unsubscribe and are not required to fill it out.
In order to stay safe at school, students are required to wear their masks properly at school (covering both the mouth and nose). Please emphasize this with your children. Should students not follow this expectation, we will provide further individualized instruction about how to wear masks properly and will work with you to ensure we are keeping each other safe. Similar to the expectations we set related to respect, responsibility and safety in a typical school year, it will be an enforced expectation that all staff and students are wearing their masks properly and following all of our other safety protocols.
Be on the lookout for an email from your child’s teacher between today and Monday. All teachers will be emailing parents with information related to student schedules, school supplies, necessary Zoom links, and, of course, a warm welcome!
Speaking of supplies, all students attending in person should plan to bring their Chromebooks as well as their reading, writing and math supplies with them to school. The Chromebook will come to and from school every day. Students will be given a chromebook case on Tuesday to help protect it as it regularly travels to and from school. Curricular supplies for reading, writing and math will be kept at school unless something is needed for independent work during the remote portion of a student’s school day.
Please continue to call in absences using the attendance line. If a student is required to quarantine for any reason, we will work individually with you about how your child will continue to access their classroom assuming they are well enough to do so.
Thank you for reading through this important information. As always, if you have any follow up questions, please let us know! Have a wonderful extended weekend, and we look forward to the week ahead!
