Mid-quarter Progress Reports

Mid-quarter progress reports will be sent home Monday, 9/20, for students in 1t-12th grades. If your child has any below average or failing grades (D or F), your child will receive a report that will need to be signed and returned to school the next day.

 

Spirit Days and Senior Night

This week we have a home varsity-only volleyball game on Tuesday, September 21, and home soccer and jr. high and varsity volleyball games on Friday, September 24.

Students may wear spirit shirts and jeans both days. Please, remember that the spirit shirt needs to be this year's spirit shirt. 

Friday night before the varsity volleyball game, we will be recognizing our seniors. Additional information will be sent to the seniors and their families.

 

Handbook Clarification

The school board has deemed it necessary to clarify the school’s expectations regarding boys’ haircuts.

The following clarification is being added to the school handbook:

     “Fayette Christian School is a member of the Buckeye Christian School Organization       (BCSO), and as such we seek to align our standards of dress and appearance with           their standards. Boys’ haircuts must be neat and trimmed conservatively in a                   standard cut off the eyes, ears, and collar. Unacceptable styles include mohawks             and mullets. Unnatural hair coloring is not permitted, unless approved for spirit              days.”

This clarification is effective immediately, and boys whose hair is currently not in compliance with this clarification must have their hair cut properly by Monday, October 4, 2021, when compliance will be enforced.

  

High School Retreat

The high school retreat has been rescheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, 9/28-29. Updated permission forms were already sent home. If the camp fee has not been paid yet, we request that you send it in next week.

 

No School

We will not have school Thursday, 9/30, and Friday, 10/1, for teachers' professional development days.

 

Picture Days

School picture days are Monday, October 4, for all students except the Tuesday/Thursday preschool 3 class. They will have their pictures taken on Tuesday, October 5.

Teachers and Volunteers Needed

We are looking for teachers for 5th grade and secondary mathematics.

We also need volunteers for the library and art.

Delays or Cancellations

Please be sure to watch Gradelink for text alerts concerning delays or cancellations.  See the Closings and Delays page for more details.

**In the event of a school cancellation, we may call a remote learning day. Teachers will prepare the students before leaving school for the possibility based on the weather forecast by sending home materials and having the students take home needed books and supplies. Teachers will also communicate via the various platforms they are already using such as Google Classroom, Class Dojo, Gradelink, etc.

Guidelines for Health and Safety

GENERAL INFORMATION

The following is information regarding the steps we are taking to try to minimize the potential impact of the Corona virus.

At this time, per our school board’s decision, we will not be requiring masks, but, of course, parents may choose to have their children wear masks. We will continue with distancing where needed such as in the lunchroom. We will follow other protocols as appropriate such as daily disinfecting of classrooms. We will continue not to use the water fountains, so students will need to have water bottles. We will continue to emphasize hand washing and the use of hand sanitizer. Guidelines are subject to change as the need arises. Procedures may be adjusted as necessary as we continue to monitor the health of our school. We will continue our approach of being responsible while being reasonable.

We will follow three basic guidelines:

  1. Social Distancing when possible.
  2. Hand washing and sanitizing.
  3. Cleaning high-touch surfaces.

We will focus on these three areas in the following ways:

ARRIVAL

We ask that you self-assess your child before coming to school. If your child shows symptoms of being sick (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.), please keep your child home.

Students will have their temperature checked prior to exiting their vehicle.

Students with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher will not be allowed to stay at school.

Students with a normal temperature will enter the building and proceed to their homeroom.

Students will order lunch in their homeroom. Lunch orders, heats, and colds will be collected from the homerooms.

ROUTINES

The drinking fountains will be off limits. Each student must have his own water bottle. Teachers will take their class to the kitchen for filling and refilling water bottles at the large sinks. The teacher should turn on the water and allow the student to hold his/her bottle for filling.

Students may not share supplies.

Students may have assigned seats in classes, the lunch room, and the auditorium.

Regular handwashing and hand sanitizing will be observed.

Classes will stay in their cohort as much as possible.

MASKS

Students are not required to wear masks at this time.  Parents may choose to have their children wear masks.

DEPARTURE

We will follow the usual carline procedures. 

CUSTODIAL

Frequent cleaning of high-contact areas will be done throughout the school day. At the end of the day, teachers will wipe down all contact areas.

PROTOCOLS TO DEAL WITH EXPOSURE TO COVID-19

If a student becomes sick while at school, he/she will be immediately isolated and supervised in the side room of the church nursery near the church office. The student will remain there until a parent or other caretaker can come to take the student home.

If a student or staff member tests positive for Covid-19, the Fayette County Health Department will contact us and will direct us as to who will need to be quarantined or isolated and for how long.

In the event of the quarantine of a student, cohort (class), or entire school, distance learning will be used to maintain the learning process.

 

Fayette Christian School is set on providing the children of our community and surrounding area with an exceptional educational experience that will prepare them for life and give them an opportunity to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
