Throughout the pandemic, the Fairfield City School District has aligned our COVID-19 protocols with guidelines set by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH). This week, the ODH released new quarantine guidelines for student and staff exposure while at school and/or while participating in school-related extracurricular activities. We will follow the new guidelines, called “Mask to Stay” and “Test to Play,” beginning Thursday, October 28. Please review the information...

Tatum Proffitt, a Fairfield High School senior, scored a perfect 36 composite score — the highest possible — on the ACT, a college-readiness exam widely used to help determine college admission and scholarships. Less than 1 percent of all test-takers achieve a 36 on the ACT exam. The ACT test covers four academic skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and scientific reasoning. It also offers an optional direct writing test. Tatum scored a 36 in the English and reading sections in June 2021, earned a 36 on the science section in February 2021, and scored a 35 in math and science in June 2021. CONGRATULATIONS, TATUM!
FCSD Families - We want to update you on recent action taken by the Federal Transportation Security Administration regarding the required use of facial coverings for passengers on airlines, trains, and buses. The federal mandate due to expire on September 13 has been extended through January 18, 2022. All students and staff riding on Fairfield City School District transportation must wear a facial covering until the mandate expires. Please provide a mask for your child to use while riding the bus to and from school, athletic events, or related activities requiring transportation in district vehicles. Thank you.
This is a reminder that per Ohio Department of Health guidelines, students and staff who wear a facial covering consistently and correctly while at school will not need to quarantine. Please contact your building-level administrator if you have any questions. Thank you.
The Fairfield Board of Education discussed the issue of facial coverings at the August 19 board meeting. The Fairfield City School District will continue to strongly recommend facial coverings for all students and staff, regardless of vaccination status. The district will continue to monitor our own data and will consider a change if the data indicate a need to do so. Thank you.
