District Update from Dr. Wagner
Dear Fairview Families: 

As we continue to look forward toward bringing students back to the buildings, I will update you with the likelihood of each week’s status based on the county and local data.  For now, families can plan on the next two weeks being “hybrid”.  This will bring us to the end of our second quarter (first semester).

Transition back to Hybrid:
Important Resources for Families 

In addition to requiring individuals to wear face coverings, we also have thousands of face shields available that can be worn in addition to masks or neck gators, to provide an added layer of protection. Face shields will be available in classrooms and offices in each building. Also, individual student desk and table dividers have been ordered and will arrive as soon as delivery can get them here. We will move forward as we did in the fall when we were in “hybrid” mode.  If you have any questions regarding face coverings, please contact your building principal for more information.

Transportation Information - all times and stops remain the same as when we were in hybrid before. Please keep in mind that the first few days, buses may be running a few minutes early or late as we get accustomed to the schedule again. 

COVID-19 Dashboard, Case Reporting, and Quarantine Protocols

Our COVID-19 Reporting Dashboard is located on the homepage of the website and is updated daily. It includes active reported cases in our district, whether a student or staff member is remote or in-person. Weekly reports are provided to the CCBH on ANY in-person reported case within our district. If you are identified as a “close contact” of a COVID+ individual, you will DEFINITELY be notified asap! 

As we move back into hybrid and in-person learning, we will continue to have positive cases reported. Our communication procedure is as follows... Once we are notified of a confirmed, positive case, we: 1) identify and notify (via email) those individuals identified as “close contacts” (within 3ft for 15 minutes or more); 2) email students and staff who shared a classroom or other close space with the COVID+ individual, and; 3) send out a general notification email district-wide to all parents and staff.

Last week, the Ohio Department of Health also released an overview of updated quarantine protocols. Students and adults in K-12 schools may continue to attend in-person school, even during a normal quarantine period, if the following conditions are met: 

  • The school has documented COVID-19 prevention policies, including universal mask wearing, social distancing, hand-washing, identification and management of students exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, and routine environmental cleaning and disinfection protocols. (We have.)
  • The exposure occurred within a classroom environment or while on required school transport (e.g., school bus). 

  • The person with COVID-19 and any associated contacts were wearing face masks that covered their nose and mouth at all times. If meals were consumed, a distance of at least 6 feet between students must have been maintained. 
  • Social distancing was maintained. 

The above guidelines only apply to classroom settings. Students should not attend in-person school if they are exposed to COVID-19 outside the classroom, including during sports and other extracurricular activities, regardless of masking. We will also continue to reflect reported cases, both students and staff, on our COVID-19 dashboard. 

Food Services during Hybrid Learning

Please note, there will be no meal pick-up next week. 
Meal pick-up will resume the week of January 25, and pick-up will be on Mondays from 12-1 p.m. at Fairview High School.

  • If students have opted into the Fairview Remote Learning Option (staying remote 5 days a week) they will receive 5 breakfasts and lunches at the Monday pick-up.
