In response we will follow our past Fairfield Local protocols. In 2019 we shut down as our flu absences were above 10% in just one building. Last school year we shut down during the COVID peak in November. That is why I am closing Fairfield schools for the remainder of this week. School will resume on Monday August 30.
I understand childcare is an important consideration and that is why I am pushing this notification out as early as possible today.
During closure due to calamity our facilities and grounds are closed. No activity can occur until Monday August 30. All athletic events are cancelled.
It is my hope that this break allows us to get everyone healthy and back to school next Monday.
