A Message from Mr. Vicha and Mr. Honeck, Middle and High School Campus Administrators

 

Welcome Back Middle and High School Students and Families! 

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we have been working diligently over the past several months to plan and prepare for this unique school year. 

Now that the teachers have returned to campus and are becoming acquainted with new tools to enhance student engagement with remote learning, we are excited to announce an upgrade to our earlier daily schedule.  When FHS and MMS students return September 8, they will now be following their regular “bricks and mortar” schedules.  

This evolution means every student will have virtual face-to-face instruction every day via Google Meet.  Our block schedule allows for deeper learning and a greater variety and better quality of experiences for students. Replicating it virtually will help to prepare everyone or a smooth transition back to the school building as soon as public health conditions permit. 

**Students should check their emails regularly now through the first day of school for key information from their teachers, including links to access Google Meet.** 

Here are some important reminders as we prepare for the first day of school on Tuesday, September 8. 

 

  • Get ready — locate and charge your school owned devices. Check for any issues and if you need tech assistance email [email protected]. Be sure to follow the district’s Acceptable Use Policy located on page 43 of the Student/Parent Handbooks.
  • Plan to pick up materials, supplies, instructions and resources from teachers based at the Supply Pick-Up on Friday, September 4. If unable to attend supply pick-up, reach out to middle school secretary or Mrs. Tieri or high school secretary Mrs. Bennhoff and student materials will be gathered and an alternate pick-up or delivery can be scheduled. 
  • Schedules are now available to view in PowerSchool. Up-to-date print copies will be available at supply pick up. Please note that schedules may change before the first day of school. 
  • Attendance will be taken every class period. If a student is sick or has an appointment, absences still need to be called in to the Attendance Office at (440) 356 – 3500  x 4104. 
  • Meet the Teacher will occur virtually with videos provided by teachers and grade level teams by the first day of school. Any questions specific to teachers or courses, contact information will be provided at the end of the video. 
  • The core tools you can expect your student to be using this year are Summit Learning, Google Classroom, and Google Meet. Teachers will communicate important reminders via the Remind App. 
  • We Still Need Your Books – Please drop off in the front vestibule at Fairview High School anytime between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. as soon as possible but BEFORE Friday, September 4.

  • Our School Counseling Services will be available during the school day. New school counselor assignments are: Mrs. Cory – Grades 6-9 and Ms. Parente – Grades 10-12. 
  • Main offices will be open and administrators will be in the building every day. If you visit, please be sure to wear a face mask. 
  • If you have any concerns with reliable Internet Access, please email Ms. Sullivan, Family and Community Engagement Coordinator at [email protected] or call (440) 356-3500 x4117
