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.



Proposed pricing for 23-24 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 account balance.  This information does not apply to kindergarten students, as they follow a half day schedule and are not here during lunch time. 


While not required by USDA, it is the policy of the Fairfield City School District Food & Nutrition Services Department to allow students to charge meals when sufficient funds are not available during the student’s assigned meal period.


This policy allows students to receive a meal at both breakfast and lunch, charging up to $-12.00 (K-5) and up to $-10.00 (6-12). Once this charge limit has been reached, the student will then be offered a peanut butter or cheese sandwich, fresh fruit and/or vegetable, and a milk for lunch at a price of $1.00. For breakfast, they may choose a breakfast entrée, fresh fruit or juice, and milk at a price of $1.50.


Students who are charging, have a negative balance, or owe charges are not permitted to purchase a la carte items such as snacks, extra milk, ice cream, etc. All funds that are brought in for the student’s account will be deposited toward the outstanding balance until the balance is paid in full.


Students will be notified when their balance becomes low or negative at the point of sale. Charge letters will be emailed or sent home monthly for accounts with a negative balance within this threshold. 


For the 2023-24 school year, the price of reduced and paid lunches will be as follows:

Breakfast- $1.50 (Regular) $0.30 (Reduced Price)

Lunch- $3.10 (Regular) $0.40 (Reduced Price)

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 meeting of the year will be held Tuesday, August 15th at 6:30 p.m. in the Compass Media Center.





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. We ask that purses/mini backpack purses be kept in student cubbies throughout the day, if they must bring them.


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.
