Message from PTA President

Thank you to each and every one of you that donated funds during Future Fund registration as well as during the Walk Through Registration this Tuesday! (Haven’t done it yet, HERE is the link). Rest assured that every penny you donated will be put to good use during the school year and will improve the school life of every Fairlands child.

We would love to meet you and hear your opinion on how to make our kids’ life better. Please join us this coming Wednesday, August 15 at 9:15 am in MPR to meet Fairlands Principal, Mrs. Galletti, as well as myself. We will share with you our future Fairlands plans and projects as well as answer any questions you might have. Also consider joining us for the first PTA General Membership meeting of this school year on Monday, August 27 at 6:30 pm in Fairlands Library. It is during these meetings that we discuss our plans for the year and you have a chance to express your views and opinions about how to make our kids’ school life better.

Have a great first day of school tomorrow and see you soon!

Mila Iacoban, mom of two Fairlands students and PTA President.

Traffic Procedures
Please read THIS document regarding Fairlands Trafffic Procedures.  

Drop and go procedures:

8:00am (First Bell) - Campus is open.  Students should drop off their backpacks at theirclassrooms and then go straight to the playground to play.  We call this the “drop and go”. Yard duties are on the playground and at school entrances to supervise children.  Please note, students are not allowed to arrive prior to 8:00am as there is no school supervision available.    

8:12am (Second Bell) When the second “warble” bell rings at 8:12am students are to saygoodbyes and to give hugs. Students are then to walk to their classroom line.This  “WARBLE BELL” now signals families to drop their student(s) at the classroom line and to go off (exit) campus.

8:15am (Final Bell) At the final bell, 8:15 am yard duties will shut and lock the gates, securing the school campus.  

Our goals are to decrease student tardies, secure the school premises, encourage student independence, and to have instruction start soon after the 8:15am bell when students walk with their teachers back to their classrooms.
