A good way to get through this cold weather is to plan ahead! So thinking that we have around 85 more days til summer vacation sounds very warm! 

Now that we are in the middle of the school year, it is always a good time to do the following with your child:

1) Supplies - do they need to get some more school supplies? (new folders, pencils, paper, etc.)

2) Sleep - is your child getting enough sleep?  Do they have a good routine on getting to bed at a decent time so they get 8-10 hours of sleep?

3) Work - is your child finding a time each night (Monday-Thursday) to spend time reviewing work, finishing some work up or reading?  There is always something to do for school!

II. If you or someone you know is a Federal Employees that are affected by the government shut down, please contact me as I have some resources that can help get food on the table. 

III.  Please don't forget to check out the  FACE page (from parent tab, under F, click on FACE).  Listed are all upcoming events and many resources for all!!!

Prepare for Winter Weather School Notifications
With winter weather upon us, families should prepare for winter school closing notifications. In order to receive these announcements quickly, it is important for families to have correct contact information in their students' PowerSchool accounts. This will allow the District's automated messaging system to quickly reach you--via phone, email, and text--with emergency weather information.

To Receive Weather/Emergency Calls, Text Messages, and Emails
Log in to your PowerSchool account and Under  "Alerting" click on  "SwiftReach SwiftK12" in the top left corner. 

On the screen that opens, click on  "Contact Information" to make sure your phone numbers and email address is correct. Then check your  "Alert Preferences" to make sure each category is checked for what you wish to receive under "General Information."  Weather-related closures are sent under the "General Information" category. 

Social Media & Website 
Families can follow the District on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to receive instant weather notifications. Follow on Twitter and Instagram at @FPSchools 

The district will also update its website, wwww.fairviewparkschools.org with school closing information.
