District Update from Dr. Wagner
Dear Fairview Families,

Based on additional information that we’ve received regarding the potential for staff to need some extra recovery time after their second vaccination AND the limited availability of substitute teachers, we are going to add in a measure of proactive precaution to our vaccination plans shared yesterday.  

No changes for this first vaccination...

Monday, February 22nd:  First vaccination day
The EEC will be closed*, all K-12 students remain home, and all teachers will provide asynchronous work for students so staff can receive their vaccinations.

Tuesday, February 23rd:  First vaccination DAY AFTER
The EEC will be open and K-12 students report to school in “hybrid” mode.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here’s the change...

Monday, March 15th:  Second vaccination day
The EEC will be closed*, all K-12 students remain home, and all teachers will provide asynchronous work for students so staff can receive their vaccinations.

Tuesday, March 16th:  Second vaccination DAY AFTER
EEC closed* and K-12 teachers will provide asynchronous work for students. *There will be no charge for child care on these days. 


We have been told that the reported side effects to the vaccine are actually a positive sign that the individual’s body is actively building its resistance to the virus, that the symptoms tend to be relatively mild, and generally pass within a day or so. However, there is a very limited supply of available staff and substitute teachers available, and with so many schools getting vaccinated at about the same time, there is a real possibility that we would not be able to provide adequate and safe supervision for all the staff absences that could occur.

We truly hope that there will be only a small number of staff needing to stay home after their second vaccination, but it’s better to make this adjustment NOW rather than 9pm on March 15th.

Thank you for your understanding and flexibility as we work through these unique times together as best we can…. Stay positive and keep smiling!

Dr. Bill Wagner, Superintendent
