IF you are planning to have someone pick up your child EVERY day at 4:00 (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 every day 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 the link below.



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  You can enter your 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.


School hours for students grades 1-5 are 9:30 AM until4:00 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.

We are pleased to share that school lunches will be free of charge this school year.  Your child is welcome to pack, but if not, we will make sure they get 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 Cafe 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.
Information regarding our Free and Reduced Lunch Program is a part of Final Forms. While lunch is free for everyone this year, these forms must be completed if you want to be considered for a school fee waiver. If you wish to participate in this program, please submit the needed forms through Final Forms. If you have questions about how to do this, please contact our office at 858-8700 as soon as possible. Remember, these forms must be completed each year for reconsideration.
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.
Latchkey is available here at Compass.  The hours are from 6:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m. and from 4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. 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.
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.
If your child is going to be absent from school, send us an e-mail to [email protected] by 9:30 a.m. (1:20 p.m. 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 a.m. on the morning of the absence (1:20 p.m. 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.
Students need to be here every day to get the full Compass experience!  Here is a reminder concerning the Board policy regarding "Student Absences and Excuses."  If a child is absent from school, we must receive an absence note from the parent/custodian no more than three days after the student's return. If no documentation is received, the absence will be deemed unexcused which could lead to an Attendance Intervention Plan being put in place.
We strongly encourage children to ride the bus to and from school each day.  Our front drop-off area will be very congested.  However, if you do need to drop your child off, the morning drop-off time is 9:20- 9:30 a.m. We let students in the building at 9:25 a.m. For our afternoon kindergarten friends, the drop-off time is 1:20 p.m.  Thank you in advance for your patience as we get students into the building in a safe and efficient manner.
