Census 2020: Everyone Counts!
Fairview Park Counts! 

Did you Know?
  • The 2020 Census is important for schools. Undercount can result in underfunding of your school district. This Census will determine funding for special education, teacher training, technology, school lunch assistance, Head Start and after-school programs. 
  • Some of the federal funding based on Census statistics is for services that influence students' readiness for learning, including maternal and child health programs, and housing, heating and food assistance. 
  • Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year.
  • The results determine how many seats in Congress each state gets.

In mid-March, you will receive information about completing the 2020 Census. 

  • It's Important - Accurate answers determine how much federal money will go into programs that benefit ALL children in the region for the next 10 years.
  • It's Safe - Your responses are kept confidential and cannot be shared with anyone, even law enforcement. All responses are encrypted in computers to keep your answers private.
  • It's Easy - Answer questions honestly about you and your household. Respond online, by phone or by mail.

No matter where you're from, or your nationality. No matter your immigration status or who you live with, for the U.S. Census, everyone who lives here counts, even those who you wouldn't think count. The census counts everyone so that things get better for all of us. And that is what matters.  Learn more at 2020census.gov.

Save the Date - State of the Community and Middle/High School Open House
Please save the date for the evening of April 30. We will host the State of the Community address in the auditorium at Fairview High School. The joint address, which will begin at 7 p.m., from Dr. Wagner and Mayor Cooney will be preceded by a ribbon cutting and community open house at the HS/MS campus, beginning at 6 p.m. Light refreshments will be served in the new cafeteria. 
District Shares Guidance on Coronavirus Preparedness
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released  information for schools about coronavirus prevention. We have reviewed these federal guidelines as well as the Ohio Department of Health's  recommendations regarding coronavirus in schools.

 

Health officials currently recommend a series of common-sense protections for our students, staff and community:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Stay at home if you are sick and keep children at home if they are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, and throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
 
While the threat of the coronavirus impacting American schools remains unknown, we continue to work with government and health care agencies to develop coronavirus response plans.
We will continue to update you on our efforts as well as developments involving this health concern.

Stay in the Know - Please be sure that your most up to date contact information is in your PowerSchool parent portal under Alerts. 

Thank you.
