School Supplies:  All school supply lists will be posted online at  Please send the school supplies with your child on the first day of school.  (Please take the time to label appropriate items with your child’s name.)


Open House:

Open House will once again be virtual for the 2022-2023 school year.  You will receive information from your child’s teacher on how to access the video prior to the first day of school.  For new students to South:  Building tours will be offered Wednesday, August 10 from 9 AM-11 AM and 12 PM-3 PM.


FinalForms:  The student handbook and all necessary forms to be completed and/or updated are

located via the FinalForms link on the District Website.


First Day of School is Tuesday, August 16.  School hours are 8:45 AM to 3:15 PM.  The AM Kindergarten session is from 8:45 AM-11:25 AM and the PM Kindergarten session is from 12:35 PM-3:15 PM.  It is important for students to be at school on time each day.


Lunch:  Student breakfast will cost $1.50 and student lunches will cost $2.85 for the 2022-2023 school year.  Snacks are available for an additional charge.  During the school year, you may put money on your child’s account online at using MasterCard or Visa.  Click on PaySchools Central Link or you may pay with cash, money order or check made payable to Fairfield South Cafeteria.  A free/reduced lunch form still must be completed to qualify for a free/reduced lunch meals and a waiver of school fees. 


South’s PTC is once again busy planning for the 2022-2023 school programs and events and would love to have your input.  You are encouraged to sign up to help with school events.  Please be on the look out for additional information from the South PTC and/or follow the South PTC on Facebook.

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 Cindy Hassler or Jody Hensley at 829-3078, ext. 4555 for more information.  Registration forms will be available online at the end of July/beginning of August via the district website.  The latchkey program is a valuable resource for those students who need to be dropped off prior to 8:30 AM and/or cannot be picked up at the 3:15 PM dismissal time. 


Kindergarteners:  During the first three days of school, we will have a staggered start for KG students.  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 19.


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 staff and PTC volunteers. 


Parent Weekly Communication:

In an effort to improve communication with our South families, we will utilize the following forms of communication:

  • The Remind App will be used to communicate to families weekly.
  • We encourage you to follow the South PTC on Facebook.
  • You may also follow Mr. Hussel on Twitter (@fcsdSouth) to receive updates.


I am looking forward to a very positive and meaningful 2022-2023 school year.  If I can assist in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone at 829-3078 or by email  Enjoy your summer!  See you in mid-August!
