Dear East Parent/Guardians,  

 

I am excited to introduce myself, Roxanna Woyat, as the new principal of East Elementary. It brings me great pleasure to say I have served students and families in Fairfield City Schools for sixteen years and am a proud parent of three Fairfield High School graduates and two East alumni. Prior to transitioning to East Elementary, I served for two school years as the assistant principal at Fairfield West. During my time at West, I stepped-up as the interim principal for eleven months. As a teacher, I collaborated and worked with students and families at South Elementary, the Kindergarten Center, and North ElementaryIt is an honor to serve as a principal in the community I love, call home, and in the same elementary school my children attended. I am most excited about and looking forward to building meaningful and positive relationships with East’s students, families, and community as our learners acheive success academically, socially, and emotionally.

  • If an emergency should arise, please contact the school office immediately.  The office staff will let you know where to pick up your child.  Please know that the office closes at 3:45 PM and all children must be picked up prior to closing.

EAST ELEMENTARY NEWS & NOTES
 
 
Latchkey Location Changing for 2023-2024 School Year
 

Dear East Elementary School Latchkey Parents & Guardians,

Beginning at the start of the 2023-2024 school year, the location of Fairfield East Latchkey will change. The program will combine with the morning and afternoon Latchkey sessions at North Elementary for the school year. North is located 1.3 miles from East at 6116 Morris Rd. We apologize for this inconvenience, but due to site staffing, it is necessary to combine the sites. While we know this change is not ideal, we hope that this location will be convenient and that we can continue to serve your child(ren) in Latchkey.

Depending on your child’s staggered start day - last names A-L start August 10; last names M-Z start August 11 - you may drop your East student off at the North Latchkey location as early as 6:30 a.m. You will receive a door code for entry. Prior to their school start time, East students will ride a Fairfield bus to East.  

At the end of the school day, East Latchkey students will ride a bus to North. The transportation department will share additional information about busing. You can pick up your child from North. Please be aware that the program will close promptly at 6:00 p.m.

**If your child attends PM Latchkey, please contact Susan Miner (e-mail [email protected]) with your child’s name, schedule, and teacher’s name. This will assist us in making sure PM Latchkey students arrive safely at North each afternoon!

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mischelle Price, FCSD Latchkey Program Coordinator, via e-mail at [email protected] or by phone at 513-623-5663. We look forward to continuing to serve your children at our new location!

 Sincerely,

 

Mischelle Price

5-2-1-0
Most of you are familiar with our building theme of 5-2-1-0. This theme represents positive healthy choices that each of us can make daily in our school and home. The concept is very easy! Each day we strive for 5 fruits and vegetables, 2 hours of screen time (or plug-in time), 1 hour of exercise, and 0 carbonated or sugary beverages!
Each quarter we will focus on one of the components.
