Dear Fairview Families,
I hope you are all well and in good spirits as you read this. As we approach our Winter Break, we would like to wish you all a very peaceful, happy, and SAFE holiday.
Today in his 2:00 p.m. press briefing, Governor DeWine made it abundantly clear that decisions made regarding holiday gatherings over the next few weeks will have a direct impact on whether students will be able to return to any type of in-school learning in January. Please be as cautious and careful as you can! Like you, we want our students back in schools as quickly (and safely) as possible in the new year.
Over the course of the next two weeks, all school offices will be closed. The EEC will close for Winter Break starting Thursday, December 24th and will reopen on Monday, January 4th. The Board Office and Treasurer’s Office will remain open Monday through Wednesday of the next two weeks during the hours of 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Just as a reminder, there will be no meal delivery or pick-up the weeks of December 21 and 28. Food services will resume the week of January 4. We will share more details on the delivery/pick-up schedule in an update the week of December 28.
School will return in full remote mode (as we are now) for the week of January 4th. A decision regarding the week of January 11th will be determined based on the state and county data as reported in the Governor's press briefing on January 7th. The data should begin to show if we are going to see a spike from the holidays by that point in time. Please make preparations in advance to either remain fully remote or return in some form of hybrid for the week of January 11th. I know the ambiguity can be very difficult for working parents, but we don’t want to bring our students and staff back together too soon after the holidays and subject anyone to unsafe conditions.
We will continue to share information with you as it becomes available to us. Our District Updates during the next two weeks will be on Wednesdays, instead of Thursdays, due to the holidays. Thank you for your understanding.
Have a safe and wonderful start to the winter break.
