UPDATE – Fairview power restored

Good news Fairview community – the power is back on. We are looking forward to seeing students tomorrow – Nov. 27, 2018.

Erin’s Law

In September you received a letter letting you know that we will once again implement a child sexual abuse prevention program, which is the result of the passage of Public Act 097-1147, also known as Erin’s Law. Our social worker, Mr. Scheid, and our school psychologist, Mrs. Gancer will teach one age-appropriate lesson in each classroom along with the classroom teacher during the month of October.  Below you will find a link to the original letter.  As always, please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs. Gurga if you have questions.

Halloween Guidelines

The PTA will host Halloween parties in each classroom on Wednesday, October 31. Students should bring a costume to school that they can change into after lunch. We will have a costume parade starting at 1:00PM. Parties will end at 2:15PM, and students will be released at 2:30PM (early release Wednesday.) Costumes may not include anything scary, gory, violent or include weapons or weapon look-a-likes. Please see the letter for Halloween more extensive guidelines. Also, do not send food or drinks to share as all of our parties are food-free. We’re looking forward to a fun-filled afternoon!

Falcon Flash – September 21

Dear Fairview Families,

I had a wonderful week as principal of Fairview, and I’d love to share my peak moments with you! Our superintendent, Mr. DuRoss, visited on Monday morning, and he and I had the chance to visit most of the classrooms. He was impressed with the student engagement and learning that was taking place wherever we went! On Tuesday, our bus company held bus evacuation drills for all of our students. Afterwards, the drivers came in to give me a compliment about our students and their exceptional behavior, and our teachers for their involvement in the drills. Then on Wednesday, grade 3-6 students attended an assembly with Gita Varadarajan, the author of Save Me a Seat. She was impressed with our students and their attentiveness as an audience. It’s a very proud moment for me when someone else notices what I get to see every day – Fairview is a fabulous school with fabulous teachers and fabulous students!

I hope to see you at Run to Read on Sunday! Visit https://sd54.org/resources/runtoread/ for more information. Remember to check us out on Twitter – our hashtag is #WeAreFV54

Important Information from Our School Nurse

If we still need a physical form for your child who is in kindergarten or sixth grade, then you’ve received notification from Mrs. Straub, our school nurse. Please note that children who do not have their physicals and immunizations will be excluded from school on October 15. It takes a few weeks to get appointments for physicals, so call your physician as soon as possible. If you have questions, please call Mrs. Straub at 847-357-5700.
