2024-2025 Back to School Information

Preparations are underway for the start of the 2024-2025 school year!
We will continue to update this page as information becomes available. Please check back periodically. 


The Back-to-School Bash is on Saturday, August 3! The event, hosted by the FCSD Community Diversity Alliance, will again be at Crossroads Middle School from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. It offers backpacks, school supplies, refreshments, and much more - ALL FREE - thanks to the generosity of our community partners. Please note: Your child must be present to receive a backpack and school supplies.
For the third straight year, student-athletes and coaches will provide hands-on fun with stations for Bash-goers to try. Activities will take place in Fairfield Alumni Stadium.

All items will be automatically shipped to the FCSD Administration Building for storage until a few days before the Bash.

Staggered Start to Kick Off the New School Year in the Fairfield City Schools
For planning purposes, we want to make you aware of a new process for the start of the 2024-2025 school year for all students in preschool through 12th grade.
  • Only preschool through 12th-grade students with last names beginning with letters A-L will start the 2024-25 school year on Thursday, August 8, 2024.
  • Only kindergarten through 12th-grade students with last names beginning with letters M-Z will start the school year on Friday, August 9, 2024.
  • Preschool students with last names beginning with letters M-Z will start the school year on Monday, August 12, 2024. 
  • All students in grades kindergarten through 12th will attend on Monday, August 12, 2024.
  • ALL preschool students will attend on Tuesday, August 13.
We believe this process will result in a more seamless start to the school year and allow time for questions and troubleshooting in smaller numbers.
Parents/guardians of students in blended families, with special circumstances, or who have questions should contact the front office of the school their child is attending in the fall.

Thank you for your support of the Fairfield City School District!
