Weekly Announcements

Hello Jaguar Cub Kindergarten Families.  This is Mrs. Gorham, Principal of Fairview Elementary.


North Carolina immunization and school attendance laws require that parents and guardians provide an up-to-date immunization record as proof that their child received all required immunizations.

If you have not already done so, please take immediate action by making an appointment and providing the required information. If the required information is not received by the start of the school day 9 / 28 / 22 your child will be excluded from school. That means suspension. When the documents are received, your child will be allowed to return.

You may also contact your private provider. Please contact me if you have any questions or need assistance.


This week we will continue to administer the beginning of year mClass assessment.  Please make sure your students are well rested, on time for school and ready to do their best on this test.


Mid term progress reports will be sent home on Wednesday, September 21st.  Please sign and return the progress reports in your students communicator folder.


Friday, September 23, is an early release day for students.  Dismissal will begin at 1pm for walkers, carline and buses.  If you wish to check your student out early, please do so by 12:25.  This is also a reminder to be at the bus stop 2 hours earlier than normal to receive your bus riders.

These shirts may be worn as part of the school uniform.

Please find the link on the NCPS website to register for bus transportation.  Even if your student rode the bus last year, you must register for transportation if you would like them to ride this year.


The district handbook is now available for you to review online. You can find it on our school website under resources or on the district website under both student forms and resources.


Please talk to your students about the first day of school and share your excitement about how great it will be. We are excited about what this new school year will bring. Jaguar cubs ROAR with PRIDE.  Have a great evening!

Good evening Jaguar Cub families. This is Mrs. Gorham, principal of Fairview Elementary.


Tomorrow, Monday, August 29th is the first day of school for the 2022-23 school year. We will open for breakfast at 7:30am with class beginning at 8:00am and dismissal beginning at 3:00pm.


For the safety of your child, please remember to provide a picture ID if you would like to check your child out early.  There will be no student check-outs after 2:25pm allowing us adequate time to prepare students for dismissal.


Kindergarten students will participate in staggered enrollment during the first week of school. With staggered entry, your child will attend school one full day, either August 29th, 30th or 31st, with a small group of their peers to get acclimated with school routines. All kindergarten students will attend school starting Thursday, September 1st. Your child's teacher should have shared exact attendance dates with you during open house.


We are excited about what this new school year will bring. Jaguar cubs ROAR with PRIDE.  Have a great evening!

Good evening Jaguar Cub families. This is Mrs. Gorham, principal of Fairview Elementary.


Tomorrow, September 5, we will observe Labor Day.  There will be no school on Monday. We hope all of our students and families enjoy your time together.


We will return to school on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.  This will be our student Independence Day, students will begin walking to class independently.  Parents will no longer walk students to class.


We use ClassDojo as an avenue to communicate with parents and families.  If you have not done so already, please make sure you connect with your child’s teacher on Dojo for 2 way communication and to monitor your child’s behavior.


Just a few reminders concerning transportation:

  • Car line closes at 8am and 3:30pm.  After those times, please drop off or pick up your child from the front entrance.  Please do not leave a student unattended at the carline drop after 8am as there will not be a staff member on duty at that time.
  • Students will not be released to walking parents in the car line.  For the carline to run smoothly, students will only be released to families who are in a car.
  • For your students' safety, we will not take transportation changes over the phone.  Please email or DOJO your students' teacher if you must change the mode of transportation.

Finally, please make sure your children are getting adequate sleep at night.  Instruction at Fairview is rigorous with no time for naps.  Recent studies suggest that K-2 students need about 10 hours of sleep to be prepared for school the next day. We can only teach them when they are awake and alert.


The first week of school went really well, let's keep it up.  Jaguar cubs ROAR with PRIDE.  Have a great evening!

Just a reminder that Fairview is a uniform school.  Students may wear white, gold/yellow and black polo shirts with black, khaki or navy bottoms. They must wear tennis shoes on their scheduled PE days.  You may also purchase Jaguar Cub t-shirts that can be worn as part of the school uniforms.

In order to be proactive, we are seeking information from all stakeholders about the safety of our schools and classrooms. Last week a link to this safety survey was shared.

Good afternoon Parents and Student Guardians,


I am writing to let you know about a potentially dangerous challenge circulating around our district. It is called the "One Chip Challenge". It involves eating a chip made from two hot peppers. The ingredient in these chips is the same found in pepper spray. It can cause dangerous side effects from a single bite. Some children experience vomiting and severe burning in the throat. It can also lead to bronchospasm, which is a trigger for asthma and other lung related issues.

 

Out of the safety for all of our children, I encourage you to have a conversation with your student about this challenge and dissuade participation. If you have any questions about this, please don't hesitate to reach out.

 

Thank you.
