West Welcomes Little Free Library 

 Try out the newest addition at West Elementary - a Little Free Library! Located near the front entrance of the school, this Little Free Library is now open to the school and community to help promote literacy. The concept is to "Take a book, Read it, Return it or Keep it." This particular box had been located at the Fairfield Food Pantry at 1085 Magie Ave., however, when the pantry moved to their new location at 78 Donald Dr., they decided to find a new home for it with more residential traffic. Fairfield West Principal Missy Muller was happy to receive the box for their school and community. Stewards of the box will continue to be the Ladies Group of Fairfield First Baptist Church along with Fairfield West staff and parents. Check out the smiling faces of West second graders who used the library just before winter break!

The cost of a school lunch is $2.85 per day ($14.25 per week). If you purchase items separately, milk will be $.50 and juice will be $.50. If your child plans to purchase lunches, please consider paying in advance. Whether you send in a check or use the EZ Pay system it reduces the opportunity for lost lunch money. Our Café Terminal keeps track of each student's account balance. 

School fees are $60 per child grades 1-4, $58.50 for grade 5, and $40 per child for kindergarten. This amount was due September 22, 2017. If you have questions regarding the payment of this fee, please contact Brenda Scheidt, the school secretary.  You may stop by the school to pay your fees during regular office hours, mail the money to us, or send it to school with your child in the clearly marked envelope which we will provide. Credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, & Discover only) may be used to pay school fees as well as online EZ Pay. If you would like to set up a payment plan for your fees, please stop by the office and speak with Brenda. We would be happy to help.

If your child will be absent from school, send an e-mail to westattendance@fairfieldcityschools.com by 9:45 AM (1:20 for PM preschool and 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 9:45 AM on the morning of the absence (1:20 PM for PM preschool and kindergarten) to let us know, along with sending in a note with your child when he/she returns. If we do not hear from you each day of an absence, we will call you and let you know that your child is missing from school.
Here is a reminder concerning the Board policy regarding “Student Absences and Excuses:” Three unexcused tardies equal one unexcused absence. 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.

We strongly encourage children to ride the bus to and from school each day. Our front drop-off area is congested and causes traffic to back up on River Road. If you do need to drop your child off, please note the sign as you leave the front drive. A left turn in the morning from 8:30 – 9:30 is not permitted. Morning drop-off time is 9:20 – 9:30 AM. We let students in the building at 9:25. For our afternoon preschool and kindergarten friends, the drop off time is 1:20. Thank you in advance for your patience as we get students into the building in a safe and efficient manner.
