Student Volunteers Needed
Wed, JUNE 2nd: 11am - 2pm Teton County Health providing a FREE Pfizer Vaccination Clinic at the Fairfield School Gym for any individuals age 12 and older who would like to get vaccinated. The school will provide free BBQ lunch for anyone coming in for a vaccine that day! County Health has also attached a very educational document and additional links for information about the benefits, safety, and effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine for students. Is this safe for my child? How do I know? How long will the protection last? Will this prevent my child/myself from being quarantined? Cost? Goal? This vaccine opportunity is certainly optional, and we encourage you to consider what is best for you. Minors will need parental/guardian consent.

Attention Parents/Guardians: On Saturday, May 1st, 2021 the Fairfield School District was notified by the Teton County Health Department that a student had tested positive for the Covid-19 virus. We have since been notified of an additional student who may also be covid positive. All students who were in close contact during the period of possible exposure have been notified and quarantined as a precautionary measure by Teton County Health and the Fairfield School District. The covid protocols and protective measures we continue to have in place have isolated this exposure and at this time we will remain in school. This is a limited exposure, but the close contact list has put a number of high school students in temporary quarantine. This notification is to provide full transparency and communication for the safety of our students, staff and community members. In partnership with Teton County Health Department, we will continue to provide a safe learning environment for all of our students. The limited school area accessed prior to isolation has been cleansed and sanitized. We continue to encourage all parents/guardians and staff to monitor students closely for any signs of potential illness. Students should remain at home if they are exhibiting any of the symptoms of Covid-19 including fever, headache, new or persistent cough, loss of taste or smell, fatigue and/or stomach issues. We would like to take this time to stress the importance of utilizing preventative measures such as, handwashing, social distancing and face coverings. Any success in preventing another outbreak depends on us. In order to keep our students and staff in school and safe it will take all of us to do our part in preventing the spread of the virus. School officials will continue to monitor the situation and will provide further information if and when it becomes available.

Fairfield Community and Parents, This information was released yesterday... "Gov. Greg Gianforte said Wednesday he would lift a statewide mask requirement later this week after signing a bill that is intended to protect businesses and health care providers from coronavirus-related lawsuits." Please note this did not refer to public entities like schools in regard to the announcement that will occur tomorrow. Nevertheless, I understand this has created some questions and caused some concern. Please be at ease. Schools primarily operate day to day under local control and board policy, which was adopted even before the governor's mask mandate was put in place. Our board adopted 1900 Policies are very comprehensive and currently provide the health related guidance for the school and covid protocols. We are still under the statewide "state of emergency" and also have to adhere to our adopted "Return to School Plan," which includes face coverings and quarantines. School policy is driven by guidance from county health, so regardless of what the governor says tomorrow, schools still adhere to board policy. The current mask policy is no different than school dress code, local grade and graduation requirements or not driving at lunch time. Once the Governor makes his announcement tomorrow, we will work with the Board to determine if any other discussion regarding changes in our processes need to occur. If there are changes that are needed, the staff will be included in that discussion. For now, the important thing to note is that our students and staff are required to continue following the same processes that we have been following all year with regards to face-coverings. The legislation regarding litigation currently does not include schools so we are also still under the "standard of care" laws which are based on negligence. Also, if the MHSA continues to require masks to be worn by athletes and coaches, it is very likely schools will all continue to follow suit and support whatever is necessary for the students to play. Our last outbreak and shift to remote learning coincided with the conclusion of fall post-season activities. We are once again closing in on the winter post-season and I am not sure any schools will jeopardize participation in those events, and at the same time do what we can to keep the school open. We are having a North Central Montana Administrators meeting tomorrow after the press conference, where we plan to discuss and collaborate about how the governor's new information will impact schools and where we go from here. The tone coming out of today's state-wide administrator conversations was pretty universal and reflected, "we are finally getting into a regular routine with everything and would simply like to continue down the safest path to get to the end without having to go backwards." Again, the ultimate goal for schools is quite simply, to keep kids here in person and avoid further closure, particularly in the elementary. If masks, seating charts and assigned lunch tables help make that happen, schools will continue to honor all the work that has been done to get to this point. We are all looking forward to the day we do not wear masks and look through plastic, but I am not sure that day is tomorrow.

If you are interested in this distance/remote option for Spring 20-21. Please call us so we can make a plan. Thanks. A distance learning solution has been researched and contracted for the 2020-2021 school year. Participating schools in Teton County and the Sun River Valley have come to a cooperative agreement to utilize Edgenuity online programs for students who choose to attend school remotely this year. Edgenuity serves students K-12 with online standards based curriculum, teaching staff, resources, and support. A local area coordinator/counselor will help launch the instruction platform to interested students and their families in time for the fall semester. Local school counselors and administrators will provide collaboration with the cooperatively shared facilitator for individual student needs and concerns from their respective schools in regard to scheduling, attendance, progress, and interventions. If you are interested in learning more about Edgenuity, please check out their website at www.edgenuity.com. The following video links may also be helpful in your decision to take part in the offered remote learning options available in partnership with Edgenuity and your school this year. https://www.edgenuity.com/video-library/?vid=5978276525001 https://www.edgenuity.com/video-library/?vid=6073377315001

ANNOUNCEMENT Friday, December 11th We sent out an automated text through Infinite Campus yesterday letting all parents know that we are cleared for school to resume on campus Monday, December 14th for all grades PK - 12. Busses, lunch and schedules will back to our regular day. County Health and the school administration have been working closely during the outbreak and now feel it is safe to return. All staff members are cleared and we are ready to get our students back in school. It is important to continue to watch for symptoms and keep your child home if they are not feeling well. All of the protocols will still be in place including masks, hand washing, and physical distancing when appropriate. We have done a deep clean throughout the building and are ready to finish strong before the holidays. We would like to thank everyone for being diligent with the quarantines and remote learning. We are looking forward to Monday.
