I hope that you have had a relaxing and enjoyable summer break! Here is some information that I believe will help you as you prepare for the start of this school year. I am so looking forward to having the children back in the school!
IMPORTANT “TO DO’s” BEFORE THE START OF SCHOOL: If you will be picking your child up, please obtain a car number from the front office before the start of school (if possible) to display in your windshield. The office will be open from 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. (closed 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. for lunch). Please bring your photo ID and our office staff will be happy to assign you/your child their pick-up materials.
Final Forms: All students must be registered on Final Forms prior to the start of school. If you have already registered, it is as simple as logging into your account, updating and signing. The link is https://fairfield-oh.finalforms.com.
Please understand that COVID protocols may change at any time based on CDC regulations. We will keep you updated via REMIND of any changes. If you have specific questions that are not answered below, please feel free to contact the office staff or myself at 868-0070 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Office Hours: The office will be open to the public starting Wednesday, August 4th from 8:00 am -3:00 pm and closed for lunch from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Class Lists: All class assignments will be mailed to students on August 10, 2021.
School Fees: School fees for Grades 1-5 are $60.00, and Kindergarten school fees are $40.00. You may pay school fees online at www.fairfieldcityschools.com using MasterCard or Visa.

School Supplies: All school supply lists are posted online
at www.fairfieldcityschools.com. You may send these supplies with your child the first day of school.
Virtual Open House Schedule: Similar to last year, our Virtual Open House will be live Monday, August 16, 2021 beginning at 6:00 pm. Look for a Remind message from your homeroom teacher.
Building Tours: Since Open House will be virtual, we wanted to give families an opportunity to walk the building with their child. North will be open for self-guided tours on Wednesday, August 11 from 9:00 a.m. –11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Most staff will not be in the building on this day, but office staff, school counselor and administrators will be available to answer any questions.
First Day of School: The first day of school is Tuesday, August 17, 2021. School hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 pm. AM Kindergarten sessions are from 9:30 a.m.-12:10 p.m., and the PM Kindergarten sessions are from 1:20 p.m.-4:00 p.m. Board policy states that three unexcused tardies equal one unexcused absence. It is important for students to arrive at school on time each and every
Lunch: The USDA has approved an extension for FREE meals through the 2021-2022 School Year! To ensure that school fees are waived and meal status/P-EBT data remains current, an updated Free and Reduced Meal Application for the current school year will still need to be completed.
North’s PTC: Look for information to come home from PTC within the first days of school telling how you can get involved. Many new activities are being planned for the school year, so you will not want to miss this opportunity to get involved. A great start is to follow North PTC on Facebook! Lots of great information for students and families!
Latchkey: Our latchkey program is available before and after school. The hours are from 6:30 am to the start of school and from the end of the school day to 6:00 pm. You need to register your child for this program prior to use. Please contact Susan Minor at 868-0460 for more information and/or a registration packet, or you may obtain information on the North website under the latchkey tab.
Kindergarteners: During the first three days of school (8/17, 8/18, and 8/19), we will have a staggered start. Only one-third of the class will be invited to attend each of the first three days of school. More information on this will be mailed to your home this summer. The first day for all Kindergarten students is Friday, August 20, 2021.
Bus Riders: We encourage all students to ride the bus on the first day of school so that they are assigned a bus seat. We have numerous volunteers assisting us during the first week of school and your child will learn where to go under the supervision of our caring staff.
Bus Information: All bus routes and bus information will be available on our school website on the Transportation tab.
