West Little Free Library 

Try out the 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 PaySchools Central system,www.payschoolscentral.com.  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 1-5, $60.00, and $40.00 per child for kindergarten.  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 PaySchools Central, http://www.payschoolscentral.com
. 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.

Reporting Absences
State law requires that parents notify the school office to report tardiness or absence from school.  An email address has been established for attendance purposes.  Parents may use the following address to report student absences:  westattendance@fairfieldcityschools.com.  The email notification will serve as a parent note.  This email address is an option we are providing for your convenience.  Parents may still choose to call in to report student absences on the day of the absence.  However, if you choose to call in, we still need to receive written notification of a child's absence within 3 days of the child's return to school in order for the absence to be considered excused.  When appropriate, please request a doctor/dentist/court/funeral document to be submitted to the school.  A total of 42 hours of parent excused notes may be used for excused absences.  After 42 hours, it needs to be one of the above mentioned documented excuses or it will be considered unexcused.  Excessive unexcused absences may result in letters from the district, meetings with building administrator (s) or potential involvement with the district truancy officer.
 
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.
