Dear Parents/Guardians: On Thursday, November 19th, 2020 the Fairfield School District was notified that a school employee tested positive for the Covid-19 virus, which was confirmed by the Teton County Health Department. No students have been in close contact with the employee. The employee last worked in person on Monday, November 16th, and as a precautionary measure, Teton County Health and the Fairfield School District isolated and requested testing from one other staff member for Covid-19. Any potential staff or students at risk will be notified by the school and/or the health department to determine a safe and appropriate course of action. Due to the isolated circumstances, this limited exposure will not require the closure of any classes, cohorts, or school functions at this time. This notification is to provide full transparency and communication for the safety of our students, staff and community members. We have implemented the Center for Disease Control safety precautions. In partnership with Teton County Health Department, we are continuing to provide a safe learning environment for all of our students. The limited 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. Sincerely, Dustin Gordon Superintendent Fairfield Schools

ATTENTION: SCHOOL CLOSURE MONDAY Due to the weather conditions, there will be NO SCHOOL on Monday, November 9th. This will be an "Emergency Snow Day" because there are families drifted in who also may not have power or internet restored by tomorrow to accommodate distance learning. School will resume Tuesday, but we will continue to monitor the ability to provide bus transportation that morning and will communicate with families who may still be snowed in. Stay Safe and Warm,

October 14, 2020 Fairfield Parents, Students, and Community Members, As you know, everyone here at the school, in collaboration with the county health department, is working very hard to keep our students in school, our athletic teams competing, and our facility operating effectively K – 12. Every day seems to bring a new challenge, but we have thus far effectively navigated most of the difficulties that have come with opening and in-person learning, which has been our primary goal. We have also successfully avoided a partial or whole school shut down due to COVID up to this point. As we move further into the fall, the number of COVID cases continues to rise in Montana, including Teton County. A growing number of schools in the state and several in our area have had to revert to distance learning due to exposure to infected students or staff, consequently shutting down in-person learning and extra-curricular competition. Even temporary shut downs create an enormous burden on teachers and students for learning, as well as parents who work and do not have daycare or the ability to stay home and facilitate their children’s education. Because of this, we feel we have to do everything we can to minimize a COVID exposure within the school, and to accomplish this, we need your help and cooperation. If your child becomes ill, please keep them home until they are symptom free for at least 24 hours, especially for temperature and deep cough and the other major symptoms associated specifically with COVID. There are a lot of other illnesses that students contract every year, so we have to work through those as well. If there has not been a defined close contact with a COVID case, it is likely a common illness and they will be back in school after a short time. If you and/or your child have had an exposure or even potential exposure, please keep your child home and call county health and/or the school until appropriate contact tracing can happen and they are cleared to return. It is possible a COVID test will be requested and quarantine time can vary, depending on the situation. Each individual case is considered carefully in cooperation and communication between the school, county health and the families involved, while observing and honoring all personal FERPA and HIPPA rights to privacy. If you are planning to travel, particularly out of state, we ask that you please contact the school and communicate so we can plan together for school work that might be missed and the possible need for a school supplied Chromebook or iPad. In consideration for the safety for all of our students and staff upon return, we would also appreciate the understanding that we need to measure the potential risk with your destination and activity for its possible impact on our entire school community. With the holidays coming up and other events that might necessitate your family to travel, we would like to work with you to ensure your child’s educational needs are met, as well as preserving the safety and operation of the rest of the school upon return to avoid an unintentional exposure and school closure. If you are going to a destination with community spread or one where contact tracing would be difficult or impossible, we would like you to please work with us and consider the potential risk for the other students and our entire school. Arrangements can easily be made for a short quarantine period that involves individual students to protect the student body and staff. Teachers will appreciate the consideration and will work out a temporary plan for distance learning and can even accommodate attending class live digitally. We do not penalize for absences that are precautionary or necessary and simply want to do what’s best for the whole school and community. We have a good plan and technology to work through a school shut down if necessary, but again, our first goal is to do what we can to prevent that from happening. Education for the majority is much more effective when students are on campus, especially for grades K – 6. Many families cannot afford to take time off if their children are required to stay home. Extra-curricular activities play a very big part of mental health for students and for many it is a major reason for attending school in person. We are navigating the difficulties associated with health and safety for those activities, while at the same time keeping the rest of the school safe. Separation, cohorts, masks, limited fans, good communication and community cooperation that works to protect the entire school whenever possible is what will allow us to continue to stay in school, keep participating, and be successful. Education this year, along with all the many things associated with school, is going to continue to be difficult and will require difficult decisions that have to be made in the best interest and safety for the entire school. There is no experience to draw from and there are no single rules that fit every circumstance. We will get through this together, and if we cooperate, communicate and all sacrifice a little for the best interest of the whole, we will do so with success. Thank you, Fairfield Administration

It is so great to live in a community that is so generous and so involved in the school. We have just received a wonderful anonymous donation of not one, but two brand new Fender electric guitar amplifiers for the music department! One is for electric base the other for guitar and both have already had a positive impact. The donation came as a result of, "Ms. Carpenter's passionate effort to involve kids and give them opportunities to enjoy learning music." "She is a wonderful teacher and has made a huge difference in our child's education." The donors also wanted to credit Todd's Sound and Music in Great Falls who really worked with them to provide the opportunity for two high quality amps for a very reasonable price. Way to go Ms. Carpenter! Thanks for making a difference for our students!!

THANK YOU - We would like to take a minute to sincerely thank some businesses and community members who made an enormous difference to our school and students this week... As you know, the corona virus has made so many things different and difficult in 2020. We were so happy just to get the students back in school. After no prom, no spring sports, a limited class night, limited graduation, no senior class trip, limited summer activities, barriers, masks, cohort classes and lunches, etc... we really wanted to try to do something fun and cool for our students for homecoming. I would like to first thank Marty Severson of Severson Productions in Great Falls for making one of his 36' x 12' LCD jumbotrons available this weekend. His others are at a concert in Helena and a rodeo on Idaho - we have the biggest and best on here in Fairfield!!! Despite the adversity of losing their varsity game, the students have been excited all week about the jumbotron for whatever football game became available and the Homecoming Drive In Theater experience Friday night. This is all available to some generous local donations and sponsorships from our local branch of First Bank of MT, 3 Rivers, Sun River Electric, and an anonymous contribution. When they heard we were working on something unique and cool for homecoming, they all contributed and helped make this happen. From all of the students, staff and administration here at the school, THANK YOU FAIRFIELD FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!!

Fairfield Fans, After a very long week with many cancellations, additions, and changes we are happy to announce that we will be able to conduct our homecoming tomorrow and Saturday in a modified manner. As many of you know, Sweet Grass County High School, had some concerns and were not able to travel to Fairfield for the regularly scheduled game tomorrow at 7:00pm. This left homecoming a little uncertain as we have never conducted homecoming without a football game. The school attempted to contact other B schools who had: 1.) Open dates or 2.) Had cancellations due to Covid. Through all of those teams (about 8) we were not able to schedule one Varsity team to come to Fairfield and play Football for our homecoming. The school also contacted AA schools to see if they would send a JV team to play our varsity and they were not able to make it work either. We also temporarily had a game set up with an A school before that was cancelled. At 4pm today, we decided there were no options but to either play a JV game or to not play a football game at all this week. We decided to schedule a JV game with Belt for tomorrow. Jeff Graham and Belt were kind enough to offer this game so that we could at least play. It is not an ideal situation but we feel it is still a better alternative than not having any game at all for our FB team this year. We will thus have a modified schedule of events tomorrow. The Football game will be held at 6:00pm instead of the traditional 7:00pm. The Movie on the big screen will be held after that. Here is a brief timeline for homecoming events: 4:00pm Parade (Changed from 4:45) 4:30pm Luke O will learn the video switcher/replay 4:30 Belt will arrive 5:50pm (National Anthem and Starters) 6:00pm Fairfield vs Belt JV Game Begins Halftime: Coronation of Homecoming Royalty (Any family member of nominated royalty are invited to attend the game regardless of being a family to a football player.) Halftime: Recognition of all Varsity Players who have had 3 of their 8 regular season games cancelled (Non JV Playing Team Members) Post Game: Movie on Big Screen Anyone needing a Sr. or Handicap/family parking space please contact Mike Schmidt at: mschmidt@fairfield.k12.mt.us Same football protocol Covid rules will be in effect as the last home game. We are making an effort to be extra vigilant with Covid as the post season is only 4 weeks away. In our conference and around the state we are seeing many more cases inside the school and record number of cases throughout the state. The school is doing our best to protect our teams from being hit with a quarantine that might eliminate the teams from the first round of the playoffs and the District volleyball tournament. It would, in effect, end our season. We are very appreciative of the support we have received over the past few weeks and ask for your patience as we strictly enforce the mask rule, attendance rules, and other Covid protection behavior rules. We cannot control the Covid virus but we can try everything in our power to mitigate the risk to give our kids the best change to participate in the post season that they are earning. On Saturday the 2nd half of our homecoming will take place with the girls playing Volleyball against the Broadwater County team. Game time starts at 1:00pm and is on a plus 20 plus 20 schedule. If family members would like to change their family pass list please do so by 1:00pm tomorrow. I would like to apologize for a notice so close to an important event like homecoming. We are so thankful we live in Fairfield and people are patient and supportive of the efforts to protect the athletes and their sports seasons. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call the school. We would be more than glad to answer your questions or address your concerns. Lastly, as this is an ever fluid situation, we will be posting any changes and or additions/deletions on the website tomorrow, throughout the day to better serve you.

Fairfield Football Fans and Community, After ongoing discussion between Teton County Health, Roosevelt County Health, Fairfield Schools and Wolf Point Schools we have all decided to postpone the football game scheduled to be played at Wolf Point for health related reasons. There will be no football game this weekend as a result. We apologize for any inconvenience this has created due to the short notice, but we needed to communicate with all those involved in the decision, and we needed to monitor the situation closely this week. Thank you for your understanding as we continue to make decisions that keep our county, community and ALL the students safe in our schools. At the same time, know that we are also doing our best to support participation in all our extracurricular activities. There will undoubtedly be similar situations as we progress into this year and hopefully you will also continue to support those difficult decisions as well as the guidelines adopted that allow our students to participate. By working together and making some small sacrifices, hopefully parents and fans can continue to enjoy watching our student athletes compete. Thank you, Fairfield Administration Teton County Health

Fairfield Football Fans – Update Clarification Hello Fairfield Nation! As many of you know, it’s game day for football vs Cut Bank tonight. I’m excited,… you are excited,… we are all excited that after over 5 months we finally get to watch our kids compete and gather to cheer our kids on! You also have probably been made aware of the guidance update we posted yesterday in a pro-active effort to address social distancing so that we can ultimately KEEP WATCHING our kids compete. We would like to address a few items in that updated guidance. We tried to choose our words carefully, but I think a little clarity might be in order. “Last week, with the number of fans that attended the game, it was difficult to adequately social distance making it necessary to start limiting attendance.” AND “At this time, we are asking those of you who are not direct family or students, please consider watching the live broadcast on NFHS, or find a place away from the field to observe.” There are two factors here that essentially are designed to address one point. We need to preserve the opportunity for families to watch their sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren. This is the reason for the word “Direct” family as opposed to “Immediate” family, which would be limited to household only. The other component is asking for those of you not in category of family to “please consider watching the live broadcast or finding a place away from the field to observe.” There were a lot of people at the game last week who were not direct family crowding the sideline, which made physical distancing a challenge to say the least. At this time, we are not turning anyone away at the gate, but the reality of going to a pass list only allowing players to choose a few people who can attend will be the next step if we cannot do a better job of physical distancing and adhering to the mandated mask rules in place. So, to be clear – the community is still allowed into the game tonight, but physical distancing has got to be observed or we will need to further modify the ability to attend the remaining games. We have also asked the student body to occupy the endzone areas to open up more sideline and the ability to hopefully spread out. Cut Bank fans will be in attendance in the designated area as well on the visiting sideling. Please do not park or stand in their community cohort area. We have from the North East Corner to the South East corner to occupy. Cut Bank has not been able to even attend their first two games, which is a situation I hope to avoid in Fairfield for the entire season. Handicap parking is still available in the south endzone, but for that you MUST be on Mr. Schmidt’s pass list which has to be requested each game so we do not list anyone not attending a given week.

Fairfield Football Fans, After recent discussions with the county health department and other schools in 1B, the High School is going to need to alter the procedures and protocols for our H.S. football games starting tomorrow with Cut Bank. The physical distancing at the event will need to be improved for player, spectator and parent safety and to comply with state mandates. Last week, with the number of fans that attended the game, it was difficult to adequately social distance making it necessary to start limiting attendance. At this time, we are asking those of you who are not direct family or students, please watch the live broadcast on NFHS, or find a place away from the field to observe. Only family cohorts may stand or sit together in both the bleachers and perimeter of the field. School, community and county circumstances along with fan cooperation will continue to determine event guidelines. Until further notice the following procedures will be in place: 1. Attendance is limited. 2. Students in Grades 6 - 12 will be allowed to attend. The 6th thru 8th graders will either stay with their parents or sit in the SOUTH END ZONE at ALL times. High School students will need to sit in the NORTH END ZONE at ALL times. 3. We also will allow spectators to drive to the facility, find a space to park and remain in their cars at all times. 4. Special circumstances should be brought to the attention of the Athletic Director for consideration. 5. Everyone in attendance will need to have a mask on at all times, maintain appropriate family unit social distancing (in the stands, on the sideline) and follow directives of the administration when requested. Fairfield Schools understands the inconvenience of this alteration but our primary goal is to ensure that the student athletes are allowed to continue to play the game they love. Please be patient with this change and help support the athletes' continued opportunity to play football. These changes will be re-evaluated as necessary and changed to maintain the best safety standards.

Good morning! I hope this finds you and yours well. I am writing to share a new video. It is the first of ten from a series entitled, Schools Cannot Do It Alone. I will send one a month throughout the year. These videos are informative, entertaining, and inspiring. Each is designed to give you a better understanding of how our schools contribute to the health and well being of our entire community. I know you will enjoy them. This first clip is fourteen minutes long. It provides a review of the challenges we face, old and new. There are no ads. No one is collecting data of any kind. Every day, our staff and Board work hard to prepare the children of our community to thrive and prosper as adults. But as the title of the video series suggests, we cannot succeed without your understanding, trust, and support. And the truth is, we all have a vested interest in increasing student success whether or not we have children in school. Here is the direct link: https://player.vimeo.com/video/445589485 Enjoy and have a great day. Superintendent Gordon

Fairfield Public Schools is happy to announce that spectators, in some restricted manner, will be allowed at home High School Football and Volleyball events. This is exciting news as earlier proposals considered having no spectators in attendance. The school will be staying in line with the District 1-B guidelines on fan attendance. There are small discrepancies between schools based on facility size, indoor vs outdoor etc, however similar general protocols are in place at most of our 1B venues. The attached document will out line the procedures for Fairfield's events. If you have any questions, please contact Mike Schmidt at: mschmidt@fairfield.k12.mt.us or text to: 406.590.2677

BACK TO SCHOOL INFORMATION Fairfield Parents, Students, and Community Members... Fairfield Schools would first like to thank all of you responded to the survey and information provided last week. We appreciate the information as it will help us finalize our planning. We all have the same goal and want the same thing, to give our students a great education. The whole world is working through how to make that happen and there are a lot of questions about the best way to get back into school. There are also a lot of decisions that we do not get to make as well as some that are certain to be questioned that are out of our control. One thing is certain though, we all want to get our kids back in school and do that as safely as possible for everyone in the community. There were 181 responses that represented 258 students. 89.5% of the responses indicated their students would be returning to school on campus this fall. 9.4% were either not sure yet, and/or wanted more information about a distance learning option. 2 responses believe home school is their best option at this time. The feedback gathered was also extremely valuable as we are able to clarify and address some expressed concerns created by conclusions drawn from previous pictures and information. MASKS - Every school and business is getting feedback on wearing masks. 77.9% of the responses didn't feel the state and/or county mask mandates would affect their decision to return to school. There were almost the same number of responses indicating that 1) If masks ARE required, they would not send their students to school... as 2) If masks ARE NOT required, they would not send their students to school. We understand both opinions and have no control over statewide mandate or county health if it happens. Our current position requiring on the bus and in hall passing is in the middle, and subject to change depending on the circumstances. Allowing teachers to decide within their classroom is for their safety and will be determined by class size and other options we have to reduce "transmission" which is different from "exposure." Mask requirement will certainly be age appropriate. STUDENT BARRIERS - This was interesting information and I believe we can make a few of you with concerns about the white ones pictured on our school website/facebook earlier this summer feel a lot better! Schools receive daily information from a variety of expert professional organizations, who are all dedicated to helping us make good decisions for education. The two prevailing options for schools earlier this summer... 1) Split classes and limit to 12 students or less. This would be achieved by creating an A / B schedule splitting days or weeks in half. This would create additional busing, limited curriculum, and a wide variety of major scheduling issues to overcome. And, it was still possible we could get shut down completely regardless. 2) If classes had more than 12 students, barriers could be utilized to limit exposure and create a safer option for students to be in school, which has been our goal since last spring. Options for Barriers (Online Purchase) Cardboard: Approx $4 ea if bought in bulk and cleaning problems. Solid Color Plastic: Approx $8 ea bulk, but not available until ? Clear Plastic: $12 ea and one size fits all, with limited availability. *We found a way to make our own for less than $2 ea and very adaptable to every age level, desk, or table. They are very easy to cut for appropriate size and shape by grade level. The ones pictured earlier this summer are durable plastic, you can clean them easily, and we can make them ourselves very efficiently. Our teachers have been using the cardboard ones for years when students take tests. These new ones will still have a use for every class when the current situation ends. YES, WE DO HAVE CLEAR DIVIDERS We do have a clear divider solution, but had to overcome some obstacles. We regret not getting pictures of those up earlier, but getting the supplies was difficult, and honestly we did not know until the survey that there was such a concern about dividers as our focus has been to get our students in the building and the safety of our staff, even if there might be a little discomfort. Again, cost and availability are factors. Plexiglass has been extremely difficult to get and demand has made it very expensive. The first source having student dividers from plexiglass were available for $89 ea, and might be obsolete in the future. We saw the pictures on social media utilizing clear shower curtains, and again, our maintenance people found a design and invented clips with our 3D printers that made them not only efficient to build, but very adaptable to different size tables and desks. (Little shout out to Brooke and Cassidy for doing a little experimenting of their own! Great team effort!) After finding a supply, we now have enough clear barriers and white barriers to supply every classroom and have done so very efficiently and cost effectively. CLEANING There were some good questions about the short video and the electrostatic sprayers. Those have a complete disinfectant that is "Botanical" and completely safe for people. It is used in schools, motels, public transit, etc. COHORT CLASSES AND SPECIALS We are working this week on scheduling. Recess, PE, Lunch, and music have always been in the schedule, they will just look a little different for a while and will vary by grade level. There is a conscious effort to keep classes together. This does not eliminate exposure, but it does minimize transmission if it happens. There will be student interaction and social development as well as other special classes. DISTANCE LEARNING Now that we have are getting an idea of how many students might need a distance learning option, we are looking a different options. We are even working on a potential solution that would involve a 4 or 5 school shared on-line curriculum and distance learning coordinator due to the limited number of students and wide range of grade levels. There will be more information about this option as we continue to work on it. Again, we appreciate your input on the survey. We will continue to find good solutions to the problems we can control and will keep getting ready for school this fall. Things will undoubtedly continue to change as well and we will do our best to adapt as they come.

WE ARE…… Eagle Football Fairfield Football Dear Parent/Guardian, 7-6-20 Fairfield football is revered as one of the most tradition rich football programs in the state of Montana. High expectations, effort, commitment and being elite are keys to keeping the Fairfield tradition strong. Competing at a high level in the classroom and on the field go hand in hand for student success. My name is Greg Misner. In June, I was hired as the K-12 Special Education Teacher and Head Football Coach. Currently, my family and I live in Northern Michigan, where we were born and raised. We have strong ties to Montana however. My wife and I have worked, taught and coached in Montana for 10 years when we were first married. I’ve coached high school sports for 18 years and have been a head football coach for 10 years. I had the blessing of playing football collegently for 4 years in Michigan which was a great experience. I received my M.A. degree from Montana State in 2013, so I’m partial to the blue and gold… sorry Griz fans. Working with students and athletes is something I have a deep passion for. I feel life lessons are learned in the classroom and on the athletic field. These experiences translate to life after school. Supporting your student-athlete is my number one concern. Afterall, once an EAGLE, always an EAGLE. I wanted to make you aware of our high school football camp. The camp will be held July, 13th, 14th and 15th from 6-8pm at the football complex. Due to COVID restrictions, we are not inviting other schools to attend this year. Due to these restrictions, the players are responsible for bringing their own water bottles. We are working on getting permission consent forms sent out as well. Thank you for your support during these restrictions. My family and I are excited to become a part of the school and community in Fairfield. If you would like to contact me, please call me at 989-329-8701 or email me at gmisner@fairfield.k12.mt.us. I’m looking forward to a great season, WE ARE… EAGLE FOOTBALL. Respectfully, Greg Misner

They may be at max capacity, but the Fairfield Youth Football Camp will fire up at 9am Monday Morning. This is forward information from Helen Music Facebook page. LAST MINUTE 2020 FAIRFIELD YOUTH FOOTBALL CAMP (FYF) INFO - PLEASE READ ALL THE WAY THROUGH :) **We are SO excited to see everyone at camp on Monday! One more reminder to PLEASE keep your kiddos home if they aren't feeling well OR if they have been around anyone that is sick and/or tests positive for Covid-19. No one wants FYF camp to be the next covid hot spot! **Once again, if you are AT ALL uncomfortable sending your child to camp next week, please reach out to me and I will be glad to get you your money back, no questions asked! While we still feel comfortable putting camp on and will be taking whatever precautions we can, this is a kids football camp and keeping them 6ft away from each other at all times is simply not possible. **Please plan to arrive a few minutes early on Monday to check in so we can be ready to go by 9am! **Any questions or concerns you can call/text me at (406) 781-4243. **We will have some snacks and Gatorade on the field but obviously cannot be sharing water bottles at this time, so please send one with your child. **Lastly, remember this camp is all about FUN! Looking forward to giving these kids a positive experience amidst a challenging 2020. **Thanks again to the community for helping us make this possible, and a HUGE thanks to the following businesses for their support of the 2020 FYF Camp! 3 Rivers Communications Sun River Electric Coop D&K Ag Supply Montana Valley Irrigation Backcountry Apparel SEE YOU ALL NEXT WEEK!

Class Night & Graduation The outlined plan for the last two weeks is posted to our website and to the school Facebook. Class Night: Tuesday, May 19th at 6pm & Graduation: Sunday, May 24th at 2pm Both events will be following the social distancing guidelines and both have a Plan A / Plan B, depending on the weather and both will be Live Streamed on eaglestreaming.com Plan A: Outdoor Event on Football Field - Community and Family Invitation. Seniors will be seated in front of the stage. Household family may be seated inside a fenced barrier. All extended family and community may sit or stand outside the barrier adhering to social distancing between families. The outdoor event will be a "Bring you own Chair" for safety and convenience. There will be room for individuals to sit in their vehicles on the visitor sideline and track. There will be decorated senior vehicles on the Home sideline for a post graduation receiving line and gift drop. Plan B: Inside - High School Gym. This will be limited to Senior HOUSEHOLD Family Only. Extended family may not attend in person, but it will be live streamed. Seating and social distancing will be provided, but not assigned. There will be seating in both the bleachers and the floor in front of the seniors. There will be labeled totes for gift drop located just outside the front gym lobby area. Let's hope for good weather!

We have gathered as much information as we can via emails, phone calls, zoom meetings, etc. and will be recommending to continue with off-site education with the distance learning modules of online instruction and material packets. We are working on COVID-19 policies, Class Night, and Graduation. We will do the very best we can, knowing it isn't going to be the very best for everyone.

How was everyone's 'spring break'? Hopefully the time you are spending with your family is good and you are using this time to communicate and bond. Also hope some of you escaped by going on a virtual field trip to some place cool! It's always hard to get back into the swing of school after an extended break and Tuesday morning will not be an exception, but look on the bright side, you only have to go from 8am to 12pm and you don't have to drive! I would like to ask all parents and students to please continue where we left off. Attendance has been excellent and school work has been pretty good. We have to power through now and make the best of this together. We are all grateful for the words of encouragement many of you have sent. We will continue to work hard to get through this and provide the best education we can. Thank you, Mr. Gordon

Hello all! A couple more items: 1) A reminder that we will continue to have spring break starting on Thursday, April 9th and concluding Monday, April 13th. 2) Governor Bullock provided a directive today that extends school closure until Friday, April 24th. 3) There is much speculation regarding when schools will reopen or if they will reopen. All we know is that we will go forward with what we have been doing until the 24th. Anything we provide other than that would be pure speculation on our part. Please, have a great evening let's buckle down for one more day before getting a couple days off!

The sun is out, the grass is turning green and we are ALL relieved to get to the weekend. As we ALL take one step closer to the end of this... whatever this is, be sure to take a little time to find some positives and build on them. *First, it is absolutely amazing what has been accomplished in the past two weeks from the school standpoint. Other than a few normal 'excused' absences and a few tardies in grades 7-12, we have had 98% attendance for the first two weeks! And I believe the EK-6 participation is about the same! Wow!! (Perhaps the teacher shortage in the US will change after this spring and some of you will decide to join our profession on a more permanent basis!) *The 'pickup' plan today went well and it looked like just about every student/family was able to pick-up and drop-off work, books, and supplies. Super! *We are now at almost 200 'hot' lunches between curbside pick up and bus delivery. Thank you for the systematic communication and thank you for meeting our people at the designated stops/times. We have been almost perfect for lunches made vs received with no waste. That's great! *Teachers and students are becoming more proficient every day on interactive technology. Even though we are all stuck in our houses, teachers are letting their students know, live and in person, that they care about them. We are all still here at school every day working hard to provide them the education they need and deserve. Rockstars! So, we would like to recognize all of you helping the school keep this education train rolling down the track so effectively. It is amazing that every teacher is doing live class for almost every period, and more amazing that all our students are making sure they are in every class every period, every day for an abbreviated regular schedule. We also want to let you parents know that your hard work, although necessary, is very appreciated. All this effort is to be rewarded. We have three days of school next week (M,T,W) then a much needed Spring Break for students, parents and just as importantly, the staff... they have been absolutely grinding. Spring Break will be Thurs, April 9 - Mon, April 13th as originally scheduled. We looked at staying in school for a couple of those days, but ultimately decided we ALL needed a few days so we can finish this thing strong and meet the challenges still to come. (And I feared for my life if we didn't) So, lets keep up the good work for the three days next week and please help us get back into the groove after the break so we can ALL finish as strong as we have started. Thank you Fairfield, Mr. Gordon

The link below will sign you up for an MSC library card that will allow access to online resources that the library offers such as MontanaLibrary2Go. Please visit this online registration form. https://mtsc.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/MTSC/search/registration/$N?pc=MTLIB2GO Sign up, write down your card number and go to MontanaLibrary2Go. https://montana.overdrive.com/ You may search or browse, select a book and then download. There are two apps that work the best: Kindle or Overdrive. I also use the filters on the left hand side, particularly the “Available Now”. If you already have a library card at the Fairfield Public Library, you may use your number to access MontanaLibrary2Go.

Reading at Home This week we will be sending out information regarding ebooks or interactive books online. We encourage all parents and guardians to be involved in the selection of ebooks & library books by their student(s). Please help them find suitable, age appropriate books. Here are a few guidelines to help. (taken from books4yourkids.com) The Fear Factor - know your reader’s sensitivity The Maturity Factor - know the maturity and comprehension level of your child The Animal Factor - let’s face it - some animal books can be really sad Book level range- This is a good opportunity to let your student enjoy a book deemed “too easy” or allow them to challenge themselves with a harder book they really want to read. A helpful site to check for age appropriateness that we use at school is common sense media. (www.commonsensemedia.org). You can search for book, movie & TV, games, and app reviews. Wondering if a book has an AR quiz? Go to AR Bookfinder. First up try ABDO providing free access through June 2020: (not all are AR - check AR Bookfinder) --Elementary Digital Bookshelf: PreK-8 --Secondary Digital Bookshelf: Grades 5-12 --ABDO Zoom Online Database: Grades PreK-2

Governor Bullock's Announcement... Good Evening Everyone, As you probably know, Governor Bullock expanded the previous extended business and school closure by implementing a "Stay at Home" or "Shelter in Place" for the state to start at 12:01am Saturday. This excludes a variety of "Essential Services", which includes education and our school lunch service. "Educational institutions—including public and private pre-K-12 schools, colleges, and universities—for purposes of facilitating remote learning, performing critical research, or performing other essential functions consistent with prior Directives on school closures and the continued provision of certain services, provided that social distancing of six-feet per person is maintained to the greatest extent possible. This Directive is consistent with and does not amend or supersede the March 24, 2020 Directive closing non-residential public schools through April 10, 2020;" Essentially, we can continue as we have already been mandated to do by the Governor and the County Health. Schools will all continue to implement their "Distance Learning Plan" We know that the elementary has an important pick-up day tomorrow and we are ok to proceed, but we all need to observe safety precautions and distancing. Packets and books will be available outside the building. Returning materials including books and homework will need to be carefully placed in appropriate tub containers that will be quarantined for 72 hours before addressing contents as directed by the CDC. Your and your students are doing a great job of helping us make this work to the best of our ability in a safe, yet productive manner. Thank you,

Office of Public Instruction, Montana University System Announce Free ACT Opportunities for Students HELENA—The Office of Public Instruction and Montana University System announced today that Montana juniors will have the opportunity to take the ACT free of charge this coming fall semester of their senior year. Normally, current juniors would take the ACT in the spring as Montana’s statewide standardized test for federal accountability. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak and Montana’s pending waiver request from standardized tests, it is likely that juniors will not be taking the ACT this spring. “In this time of uncertainty, Montana students, families, and educators should be focused on their health and safety not fulfilling standardized test requirements,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Elsie Arntzen said Tuesday. “I am pleased that Montana high school students who wish to take the ACT in pursuit of post-secondary education will have the opportunity to take it free of charge this fall.”

FAIRFIELD STUDENTS, PARENTS, AND COMMUNITY... YOU ARE AWESOME!!! It is my pleasure to let you all know that we had 100% attendance in grades 7-12 on the first day of school, via distance learning!! AND, almost every single class had a live session on google meet or ZOOM with great interaction. We did have 2 excused who called last week and a couple little glitches with connections and camera's early, but everyone got in and had class today! We cannot say thank you enough for your outstanding support of the school and our educational plan as we work through this to the best of our ability. Parents and students, you are doing a great job and it is greatly appreciated. We would also like to give 3 Rivers a huge thank you for getting all our students internet access and making this all possible. You have really helped the teachers and our students make this work.

Important Announcement... As you know by now, a more formal school day starts on Monday from 8am - 12pm for grades 7-12, BUT, in order for that to happen, all students need to check the following: 1) School email 2) Google Classroom Teachers were asked to start by making contact with every one of their students on Thurs/Friday to make sure students know how they will start scheduled class on Monday. There are many students who have not made any contact with their teachers online and they need to do so right away. Teachers should have left directions for the media platform they will be utilizing to start classes Monday. This is important, because we will be taking attendance every period from 8 to 12 and this DAILY PARTICIPATION will be 30% of their grade for as long as this distance learning situation lasts. School from 8-12 is not optional, it is required attendance the same as a regular school day, just from home. This is a very good structured option and will help ensure successful education is getting done, just in an abbreviated day, which should be easy for students previously committed to an 8:15 to 3:36pm day. PARENTS, YOU WILL NEED TO HELP FACILITATE FROM HOME. Your student's academic success will depend upon your commitment to their education as well. Students need to also be reminded: 1) Attendance will be required 2) All school handbook and policies will still be in place 3) Appropriate dress and behavior will be necessary for video classes: Google Meet and Zoom. *Students will need to 'attend class' from an acceptable place in your home, preferably at a table or desk. Sitting in bed during class will not be productive or appropriate. 4) Acceptable Use Policy: Teachers will be utilizing Hypera which allows them to monitor what you are looking at on your chrome book during class. 5) Quarter Grades and Semester Grades will still require work to be turned in beyond class. The 8-12 day will allow instruction and in some cases a little work time, but some classes will still have work to be done outside of that time... a new definition of home work! It is also important to let you know, that we are preparing for this to potentially last for the entire 4th quarter. We are hoping it does not, but it presently looks like that might be the case. Thank you for your assistance,

Fairfield Community, Parents, and Students, I feel after today we are gaining traction on this situation. I am pleased to announce that every student in grades 4-8 received a chrome book today during the pickup! Wow! We were also able to disperse almost all the HS materials as well! That was a big first hurdle to get "School" rolling again right away. The staff has been finalizing our plan and I believe I will be rolling out the initial "Fairfield Education Plan" tomorrow as previously stated. Our plan is very good and it will have structure to see us through a short term shut down as well as flexibility to extend until the end of the year if that becomes necessary. We are ready!! Staff members will begin making brief contact on Thurs/Friday and we will be in full fledged "virtual school" next Monday morning at 8am. I will share those details tomorrow. Thank you Fairfield Community for supporting us here at the school. We are, and will continue, to work hard and make the best of the situation and to provide quality education.

NEWS FROM THE BOOK FAIR!!! Hi Diane, Thank you for your efforts this spring in making your Scholastic Book Fair a success! Getting books into your students’ hands is so pivotal all year round – especially in spring as we head into summer. Keeping their home libraries filled during those summer months is key to your students advancing their reading skills for the following school year! Because of this, I wanted to paint a picture not of your fair’s success by dollars and cents, but by books and reading minutes. Based on your most recent book fair; your school community walked away with 836 books, which equates to 150,540 independent reading minutes. This success should be celebrated and shared with your families and staff! Thank you again for all of your hard work and I look forward to our future work together!
