District Update from Dr. Wagner
Dear Fairview Families: 

The first week of returning to our pre-pandemic schedule (“all-in”) has gone exceptionally well.  

Your student may be experiencing some anxiety about returning to school. If they are, please don’t hesitate to reach out to their school counselor or Carrie Sullivan, Family and Community Engagement Coordinator at csullivan@fairview.k12.oh.us

Just a reminder that on Monday, March 15, many of our staff will be receiving the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. ALL students K-12 will work remotely on Monday, AND on Tuesday, March 16 to accommodate staff if they should have any side effects from the second dose. The Early Education Center will also be closed on both of these days. 

As a resource for you, I wanted to share the following information that was shared with Superintendents throughout northeast Ohio earlier in the week from Auditor of State Dave Yost about protecting your child’s personal identity.  Be sure to watch the video at the link below...

This week is National Consumer Protection Week (“NCPW”). Many times, NCPW focuses on those engaged in consumer transactions, which don’t ordinarily include kids. However, this year we are making a dedicated effort to help protect a vulnerable population when it comes to identity theft – kids!
 
Child identity theft occurs when someone fraudulently uses a child’s identity to fraudulently open accounts or receive benefits. The imposter may be a family member, friend or a stranger and may use the child’s name and Social Security number to open new accounts for cell phones, utilities, credit cards and even mortgages.
 
Imposters may get away with using a child's identity for years because children typically do not try to check or access credit. As a result, child identity theft usually is not discovered until the child applies for college financial aid, a car loan or employment.
 
To help combat this problem, (we have) launched a video aimed at parents to understand what a child security freeze is and how to place a freeze. The video can be found here
 

Thank you all for helping us have a great first week back to our pre-pandemic schedule.  It’s so nice to see the many smiling faces of students and staff as we reunite again and begin to return our schools and lives to “normal”.  
 
With Warrior Pride,
 
Dr. Bill Wagner, Superintendent
Fairview Park City Schools
