Greetings Fairfield Families and Friends,
The stretch from Christmas vacation to spring break can be a challenge as we frequently seem to be at the mercy of the weatherman. Our goal is to have students in school on every scheduled school day, while still being aware and prioritizing the safety of our students and staff. With winter weather still ahead of us, we will continue to carefully assess conditions when making decisions about potential delays and cancellations.
Conditions of state roads, county roads, school parking lots, sidewalks, blowing snow conditions, cold temperatures, and wind chill warnings all factor into the decision whether or not school will begin on time, be delayed or closed. We do realize it is tough for working parents to arrange for child care on days school is delayed or closed. We are also aware that dangerous conditions can and do occur, and you don't want your children out in the extreme situations that warrant a delay or dismissal. Thanks for your patience as we seek to make the best decisions on these cold wintery days ahead.
Robert Evans, Ph.D.
