Dear Fairview Families,
We’ve had many new students enroll this summer, especially over the past week. The number of students per classroom in grade 1-2 now exceeds the School Board goal, and we are going to hire a new teacher. This means we have to create new class lists for grade 1-2 and adjust the master schedule. Additionally, this week, Miss Colgrove was offered the opportunity to teach in a dual language program at another District 54 school, so we will hire a replacement for her at grade 5-6. While it’s hard to say good-bye, we wish Miss Colgrove the very best in her new position!
Due to these changes, we cannot mail classroom placement letters this week as we had planned. The letters will be mailed next week, as early in the week as possible. If you haven’t received your child’s placement letter by Friday, August 22, please call the office.
We are in the process of interviewing multiple candidates as we are seeking the best teachers for our students. Thank you for your patience as we working diligently to ensure that all of our students will have the best possible school year.
I’ve also attached a link below with a letter outlining upcoming events, the first day of school arrival directions, arrival/dismissal procedures after the first day, and lunch times. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have further questions.
