WELCOME TO FAIRFIELD COMPASS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 
2022-2023 School Year
Important Information for Back to School!  

 

Final Forms- VERY IMPORTANT – Take care of this now!  

To ensure you receive the Remind information mentioned above, please make sure we have your most up to date contact information in Final Forms.  Final Forms is the way we are collecting almost all the beginning of the school year paper work from parents.  If you have not yet completed your Final Forms, you need to do so ASAP.  The link to do so is https://fairfield-oh.finalforms.com/     Please call us at 513-858-8700 if you need help completing your Final Forms.  We are happy to help!      

 

Transportation 

BUS RIDERS 

Parents of bus riders, please know that your child will automatically be routed on a bus to your home address unless you complete the Babysitter Transportation form which is now on Final Forms.  So, if you're wanting your child to ride a school bus to a babysitter (not to your home address), we need this form completed BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS. Remember, we can only transport within the Compass school area, so this only works if your sitter lives in the Compass area. And again, this is completed on Final Forms.   

 

Bus number, stop location, and arrival time can be found on our website www.fairfieldcityschools.com on August 9.  A link will go live on Aug. 9  where you can enter your home address to receive bus info.  Remember, all children are routed to their home address listed on Final Forms, not a babysitter or anywhere else, unless you complete the babysitter transportation form. 

 

DAILY PICK UP STUDENTS 

If you are planning to have someone pick up your child EVERY day at 3:55 p.m. (which means you do not want us to put them on the school bus), you NEED to fill out the daily student pick-up form. If you plan to have a daycare pick up your child every day, this is also the form to fill out. We need this information BEFORE the first day of school. If this form is not completed, we assume that you want your child to ride the bus home.  On this form, please notice how our everyday pick-up procedures will be similar to last year. Every day pick up parents will not need to enter the building at all, but you will need to pick up your dismissal tags before the first day! See the form and more details by clicking/copy, paste the link below.

Meet the Teacher   

Teachers will mail home welcome/introduction letters on Tuesday, August 9.  This will be full of needed information to start the school year so be on the lookout!  

Additionally, all teachers will be preparing a virtual open house presentation.  Teachers will send a Remind message to their parents on August 12 with info on how to access their virtual presentation.  There is also a lot of back-to-school information on our website at www.fairfieldcityschools.com.    

 

Building Tours 

With open house being virtual, we wanted to give parents an opportunity to walk the building with their child (especially for our incoming kindergartners and new students).  Compass will be open for self-guided tours on Wednesday, August 10 from 9:00 am-11:00 am and 1:00 pm-3:00 pm.  Not all staff/teachers will be in the building on this day, but office staff will be available to answer any questions you may have. 

 

First Day of School 

  • Kindergartners have a staggered start to the school year.  This means for the first 3 days of school (August 16, 17, and 18), only part of the class will come each day.  The teacher will assign which day your child is to attend and that information will be included in the teacher letter that will be mailed out on August 9.  All kindergarten students will attend together on August 19.  
  • Grades 1-5=Tuesday, August 16th     

 

School Hours 

For students grades 1-5, hours are 9:30 AM until 4:00 PM.  For kindergarten, the AM session is from 9:30 a.m.-12:10 p.m. and the PM session is from 1:20 p.m.-4:00 p.m. 

 

Lunch 

Proposed pricing for 22-23 meals is as follows:  Breakfast: $1.50 and Lunch: $3.10. Your child is welcome to pack, but if not, we will make sure they get a lunch.  However, if your child wants to purchase additional snacks, they will need money on their lunch account.  You can send in a check, cash or use the PaySchools system to reduce the opportunity for lost money.  Our Café Terminal keeps track of each student's account balance.  This information does not apply to kindergarten students, as they follow a half-day schedule and are not here during lunchtime.   

 

PTC 

Compass has a wonderful PTC (Parents and Teachers for Children) which will meet throughout the year.   Please feel welcome to attend and participate in any of our many activities throughout the year.  This is a wonderful way to stay informed of all that is happening here at Compass. Please find and like us on Facebook at Fairfield Compass Elementary School PTC to stay up to date! Our first planning meeting will be held Tuesday, August 9th at 6:30 p.m. in the Compass Media Center.  

 

Conference Nights 4:10 p.m.-7:40 p.m.  

Thursday, October 6  

Thursday, October 20  

Thursday, November 3  

Thursday, February 16   

 

Latchkey 

Latchkey is available here at Compass.  The hours are from 6:30 AM - 9:30 AM and from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM.  You need to register your child for this program prior to use.  Information packets are available in the school office.  Latchkey’s phone number is 513-858-8698 if you have questions. 

 

Dress Code 

A copy of the dress code policy for Fairfield City Schools is included in the Elementary Handbook which is on Final Forms.  Let’s help our students establish good habits right from the start.  Our most frequent issue is shoes with no back strap.  It is for their safety that we require shoes to be firmly attached to feet.  Flip-flops and Slides are not permitted.  Additionally, we have seen with our older students that purses/mini backpack purses can become a distraction, so please avoid bringing these to school unless absolutely necessary. 

 

Student Absence 

If your child is going to be absent from school, send us an e-mail to [email protected] by 9:30 AM (1:20 PM for PM kindergarten). This will notify us and count as your written note for your child’s return!  If you are unable to email us, please call the office by 9:30 AM on the morning of the absence (1:20 PM for PM kindergarten) to let us know, along with sending in a note with your child when he/she returns.  If we do not receive an email note from you each day of an absence, an automated Remind message will let you know that your child is missing from school.
