To Fairfield City School District Parent/Guardians -
 
We want to clear up any confusion over what the Fairfield City School District's stance is on masks/facial coverings for the 2021-2022 school year. The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) is currently asking individuals who have not been vaccinated to consider wearing a mask/facial covering. However, at this time, the Fairfield City School District IS NOT requiring masks/facial coverings for the 2021-2022 school year.  We are leaving this decision up to each person or their parents/guardians.
We will continue to follow the guidance provided by local and state health officials regarding COVID-19 protocols and procedures. Please understand that with all things during this pandemic, this information/guidance is subject to change. We will continue to communicate any additional guidance we receive from the Ohio Department of Education or the ODH. Again, at this time, the FCSD IS NOT requiring our students or staff to wear a mask/facial covering for the upcoming school year. 
 
Thank you.

Why Do We Need a Plan for Safe Return to In-Person Instruction?
Image of the Reset and Restart education banner used by the Ohio Department of Education.
The recently passed American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides substantial federal resources to support states and local school districts. Recent federal guidance clarifies expectations for states and districts, including the development of a state plan that must be approved by the U.S. Department of Education before the remaining one-third of the federal funds can be allocated. As such, school districts and community schools receiving ARP funding are required to make public their plan for the safe return to in-person instruction for the 2021-2022 school year.
