KSHSAA voted yesterday that effective Thursday, December 10th, interscholastic activities will allow for attendance of up to two parents/guardians per participant(s) family, as allowed by local board of education or health department restrictions. These two spectators must be a parent or legal guardian and any other people are excluded, including siblings, grandparents, and other family members (unless they are legal guardians.) Also, no matter how many participants there are from one family, that family still only gets 2 parent spectators. This will be in effect for Fairfield basketball games and the Falcon Classic Tournament starting tomorrow, Thursday, December 10th. Masks are still required for attendance.

QUARANTINE Changes from RCHD, Effective 12/4/2020: The new shortened quarantine is only for those people who show NO SYMPTOMS of the virus. First, you must get tested with a PCR test (the uncomfortable kind up your nose) on or after Day 5 of your exposure to COVID, and your test must be negative. You must provide proof of that negative test result to return on or after Day 7 of your exposure. If you choose NOT to get a test and remain symptom free for 10 full days, you can be released from quarantine after Day 10. Remember rapid tests, antigen, or antibody tests do not qualify for this shortened quarantine; it must be a PCR nasal test.
FHS basketball will tip off the season on Friday, December 4 against Oxford. Games will begin at 4:30 with JV boys, followed by varsity girls at 6:00 and varsity boys at 7:00. The livestream link will be made available on Friday. (Reminder that no spectators are permitted to attend winter sporting events from December 1-January 28.)
Remember that tomorrow, Thursday, December 3, will be a remote learning day due to potential weather concerns. There will be no school on campus, and no buses will run.
Attention ALL PK-12 Students, Parents, & Families: This THURSDAY, December 3rd, will be an ALL-Remote Learning Day due to projected weather and road conditions. The buses will NOT run and all students will be expected to learn remotely from home. A sack lunch and breakfast for Thursday will be sent home with your student on Wednesday, with their devices and materials needed to do remote learning. Please make sure your student is online and zooming with their teachers at the appropriate times, especially for grades 4-12. They may check Google Classroom for the lesson times and assignments. Attendance and grades will be taken. Also the FMS game on Thursday has been cancelled and will be rescheduled later.

FMS basketball plays Lyons today at Fairfield. Games will begin at 4:00. We will honor 8th graders between the A team girls and A team boys game.
11/27/20 UPDATE - The situation continues to be serious in our county with 1,030 new virus cases and a PTR of 46.5%. At this point, we plan on having school on Monday and staying in our small cohort groups. If that changes, we will let you know via social media and an ALL CALL. Please do what you can to take action to help control the spread of the COVID virus: #1 Monitor yourself and your children for symptoms and stay home if you are sick or not feeling well. #2 Avoid the three C's (Closed Spaces with poor ventilation, Crowded Spaces, & Close Contact.) #3 Wear a face covering and wear it correctly, over nose and mouth. #4 Wash your hands often and disinfect surfaces regularly. #5 Maintain six feet or more of physical distance from others.
Due to KSHSAA's decision to not allow fans at winter sporting events, we will be holding 8th grade parents' night at the middle school basketball games on Monday, November 30.
Yesterday KSHSAA decided there will be NO spectators at middle or high school sporting events from December 1, 2020, until January 28, 2021. This doesn’t affect the FMS home games vs. Lyons on Monday, since it’s still in November. We will continue with the 3/4 ticket system for that game to keep fan numbers low. Also another KSHSAA decision was that there will be no sports competitions allowed between December 23, 2020, and January 7, 2021.
All basketball practices today at Fairfield are canceled due to the road conditions.
We had another individual at Fairfield test positive for Covid-19 late last Friday. The person had not been at school since Monday, 11/16/20, so only the individual's family and close contacts have been quarantined. We continue to work closely with the Reno County Health Department to guide us through each situation. Please continue to follow the guidelines to help stop the virus spread.

Those numbers are certainly concerning. Enjoy your time and keep safe!

FROM RENO COUNTY: We need your help to curb the spread of COVID-19, prevent our hospital from being overwhelmed, and protect our neighbors from critical illness! Hutchinson Regional Medical Center, Hutchinson Clinic, the City of Hutchinson, and the Reno County Health Department are asking all Reno County residents to take the COVID Cut-Off 10-Day Challenge, November 4-13. During these 10 days, we’re asking for a commitment from residents to: Wear a mask AND distance 6 feet at all times in indoor spaces (outside of home), plus maintain at least 6 feet of distance outdoors. Avoid being indoors with non-household members except for school, work that can’t be done from home, and activities deemed absolutely essential. Work from home, if possible, and hold meetings online rather than in person. Hold gatherings online rather than in person, and avoid situations that involve singing, refreshments, and other high-risk activities. Support local stores by wearing a mask, social distancing when in person, and if possible, ordering online or by phone with curbside delivery. Support local restaurants by getting take-out rather than dining in. Continue to maintain healthy behaviors by keeping up with routine physician, dental, and eye appointments. Maintain a balanced diet and routine exercise. Let's all do our part to curb the spread of Covid-19!

We want our students to be able to learn on campus if at all possible, so we are continuing with our mitigation protocols.

We will be in the RED Zone next week because of the new numbers in Reno County: 259 non-prisoner new, active cases and a Positive Test Rate of 18.9%, for the last 14 days. We expected this to happen based on last week’s numbers, so the BOE discussed and helped plan what would happen this week with our school district, if we continued to NOT instances of cases on our campus. Here is our plan for next week: 1. All PK-12 students can attend classes on campus ONLY if we keep our students in small, cohort groups. That means that even middle and high schoolers stay with the same small group of students all day. They do not intermingle and do not change classrooms. We did this at FMS and FHS this past week as part of our modified orange. This also means that there will be some rearranging of students in FES classes that are too large. That is being worked on right now. 2. All students will eat lunch in their classrooms, with the exception of Pre-K and Kindergarten. Pre-K will spread out in the cafeteria to eat, while Kindergarten students will eat in the concessions area. 3. There will be no spectators for sports next week. Fortunately we do not have many home games left, but there is a home FHS football game scheduled on Friday, October 23rd. We will broadcast that game for you online, but there will be no spectators allowed on campus. We apologize for the inconvenience, but this is being done for safety reasons and to allow the student athletes to play. 4. Sports activities and practices will continue, but only active participants may travel to away games. 5. We will follow the rules of the schools we visit for away games. If they allow spectators, you will be able to attend. We will post details on our social media to inform you. 6. There will continue to be NO AFTER-SCHOOL program. The majority of our parents and patrons have been supportive, and we can’t thank you enough for helping us through this challenging time. We remain committed to educating children on campus, as long as it is safe to do so. We remain committed to keeping you informed and to being transparent as to what is happening. As of today, we have no positive case among our staff and students, but that could easily change. We will do our best to keep you updated.

Next week there will be NO SCHOOL on Monday due to inservice. Beginning on Tuesday, 10/13/20, Fairfield will transition into the FULL ORANGE stage of our gating criteria. This is due to exponential growth of the virus in Reno County in the past week. We are now at 168 new cases and a positive test rate of 14.7 %, and this number excludes prisoners. What does this mean for USD #310? All students will still be on campus, except those who are already remote learners. The elementary school day will basically look the same. However, the 7th-12th graders will see a schedule change where they will stay in the same room with the same small cohort group throughout the day, following their normal Wednesday schedule. Sports activities will not change because all games are "away" next week so we will follow the home school's rules. This action is recommended by both the RCHD and KSDE as the best way to be able to keep schools open. We are committed to keeping our schools open as long as possible. Thank you for your support and remember to do what you can to help: socially distance, wear a mask, and wash your hands.
October 4th-10th is National 4-H Week! USD 310 congratulates all students and parents who participate in this program that encourages leadership and personal growth. Feel free to post a picture of your USD 310 4-H student or their projects! Great job to all of the USD 310 4-H members. If your family would like to join 4-H, please see Mrs. Mathes, Shala Metzger or any current Western Reno County 4-H member!

Breaking News: Since the Reno County Commissioners voted not to allow local school boards to depart from the Governor's Executive Order 20-59, all students and adults in the main building on campus will be required to wear masks. There is an exception for those with doctor's orders. We tried not to have our youngest students, especially Pre-K, be required to wear masks. However the commissioners did not grant our board the power to make that decision. Also KSDE guidelines require that all students in a main building, even Pre-Kindergarteners, wear masks. If you are a parent of a younger child and this changes your mind about your child attending school, we will still serve them remotely. Please let us know as soon as possible.

The Fairfield Board of Education approved a new calendar tonight for the 2020-2021 school year. The first day of school has been moved to Wednesday, August 26th. This change is being made for several reasons. More time is needed for professional development and planning for both onsite and remote learning. Also more time and training is needed for our new and extensive safety protocols. Finally, as most of you know, we have several suspected COVID cases in our area and also some confirmed ones. A number of people are currently in quarantine. Our district is working closely with the Reno County Health Department as we proceed. Our overall goal is to do everything we can to keep our students and staff safe. The updated calendar will be posted on our website tomorrow, Tuesday, August 11. If you have not enrolled yet, please take care of that ASAP. Thanks!
Sports practices will begin on Monday, August 17th. Times of practices will be announced later this week.
Do you have plans next Friday night (August 14)? If not, you may want to join with other Fairfield families to attend the FREE virtual show with Curtis the Mentalist at 6:30 pm! If you are interested, send an email to Julie Steen (email@example.com) for the Zoom link!

The Kansas Board of Education did not approve Gov. Kelly’s executive order to delay the opening of schools until after Labor Day. The board voted 5 to 5 on the executive order, but a tie means a "NO" vote. When school starts is up to each local school board to decide. SO WHEN DO WE START SCHOOL AT FAIRFIELD? Your Board of Education has previously approved a calendar where school for students starts August 19th, 2020. Our website has all of the current dates. You will get your printed calendars at enrollment in the first week of August. Whether you were for or against this order, we will work together with you for solutions to keep your children safe at school.
When does school start? Right now it all depends upon several things. First, the Governor will issue an executive order to not start public school classes until after Labor Day. This is supposed to happen today. Secondly, the Kansas State Board of Education will hold a special meeting to discuss, and then either accept/reject the governor's order. It will be broadcast virtually later this week, maybe Wednesday. (3) What happens after that is still being debated . It could eventually end up being the decision of either our County Commissioners or our local school board. We will let you know once we know. Even though some things are uncertain at this time, one thing is for sure. We are planning on doing what we can to make children and staff safe at school when we do return.
FHS graduation will be held on Sunday, July 19 at 4:00. For those attending, masks must be worn in the building. For anyone who is not comfortable attending the graduation in person, it will be live-streamed at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R70pbGEgD0U&feature=youtu.be

Governor Laura Kelly announced today, July 15, that she will issue an executive order next week that will delay the opening of schools until after Labor Day. According to Governor Kelly, this additional time will allow schools to thoroughly review the plan and create strategies that are best for each district.
The State Board of Education on Wednesday accepted the K-12 reopening guidance but board members said local school boards will be making final decisions on how to start the school year. Meanwhile, Gov. Laura Kelly has scheduled a news conference at 3 p.m. today to talk about the upcoming school year. This chart gives an easier-to-understand visualization of the way that things could work! Source: KSDE and KASB
State education officials Tuesday released their guidance to help start the new school year amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but the leaders emphasized that local districts with local input will decide how their schools will reopen. The “Navigating Change 2020” draft guidance was released to the State Board of Education, which is scheduled to vote on it Wednesday. The document is 1,088 pages long. Here is a link to it: https://www.ksde.org/Portals/0/Communications/Navigating%20Change/DRAFT%205%20Navigating%20Change%20Kansas%20Guide%20to%20Learning%20and%20School%20Safety%20Operations-WEB.pdf?ver=2020-07-14-113912-290

The Kansas State Department of Education will release its guidelines to the public this Thursday, July 16th at 12:30. A Fairfield committee composed of teachers, parents, Board of Education members, community members, and staff will be watching Dr. Watson’s zoom session together. Then afterwards we will start refining and editing our existing plan to match the KSDE recommendations. As soon as our plan is available, I will share it with you electronically. The KSDE document is 1078 pages, but we will do our best to follow each recommendation. It’s our goal to do everything we can to keep children as safe as possible. Your Board of Education is committed to this goal and spent considerable time last night discussing aspects of our reopening plan. Please know that we are doing everything we can in an uncertain time. There will also be a parent survey posted soon so you can share how you feel at this point. Thanks for your support and patience in a difficult time. Betsy McKinney, USD #310 Superintendent

FAIRFIELD BOARD HOLDS APRIL MEETING The USD #310 Board of Education met on Monday, April 13th, 2020. Board Clerk Amy Riggs and Technology Director Scott Flaming were the other people in attendance, as the meeting was projected on an online platform so patrons could also be involved. Besides the normal monthly consent agenda items, the board discussed and took action on two major items. First was the expansion of the Fairfield Daycare. Based upon the need and demand for more spots in our current daycare program, the board voted 7-0 to move our daycare from a level one to a level two. The children will still be in one room but will now have two adults present. In addition, more children can be served. The Fairfield Daycare remains focused on meeting the needs of our staff first as a way to help recruit and retain staff. Additional spots not used may be filled by community members, using a waiting list format. The second major decision made by the board included the 7-0 approval of a new track and asphalt underlayment. On our current (original) track, the top surface along with the underlayment is cracked and unusable for competition. The board approved a bid from Beynon Sports for the BSS 200 track system ($ 136,026.03) and also a bid from Apac ($ 108,507.45) for the underlayment asphalt milling and work. The work is projected to be finished by the time school starts for the 2020-2021 school year. Other business discussed included an update on the progress of the district’s Continuous Learning Plan and reports from the principals. The administration is contacting parents of students who are behind in their online work and grades are being posted. Teachers are also in contact with parents and students. It is a different format of learning entirely, but it is working.
Tonight's Board of Education meeting can be streamed live from the following link: https://youtu.be/QMyvfUfGB6g Attached is the agenda for the meeting.
The District Office will be closed April 10th in observance of Good Friday.

THE SADNESS IS REAL: An open letter to teachers Grief means you loved well. By Tricia Lott Williford, 3-26-2020 “What’s keeping you awake at night?” A friend of mine asks this question when she wants to get to the heart of what’s on the minds of the people she loves. The worries that keep us awake at night can point to the core of who we are.What’s on my mind tonight? The teachers. It’s 3:00 in the morning, and I can’t get you out of my mind. You didn’t plan on this. And let’s be honest: teachers are planners. This is one giant curveball. You were gearing up for spring break – that’s all the time off you needed. One week off, and then you had plans to head into the homestretch of the school year, the weeks we’ve all been waiting for. The most fun units that you save for springtime. The sentimental traditions. The finish lines. That last stretch where your team rounds third base and heads for home plate. And now this, the closure that was one week, then two, and now four, probably eight, but who really knows? I taught kindergarten and third grade, and the thought of someone taking my kiddos away from me in those last weeks? Well, it has me awake tonight, feeling so very sad for you. I would have worried for the kids who were hungry – for food, yes, but also for soul care. For eye contact. For morning hugs and high-fives and secret handshakes. There’s so much you can learn by looking at your students, by the way they slump over their desk during a spelling test and the way they hold the book too close or too tight when they’re in the reading corner. You have spent months, weeks, days, and a million moments with them. Your heartstrings are tied to them, and now your heart feels stretched in so many directions that it’s frayed down the middle. A kindergarten teacher I know lined her kiddos up for the “last day,” and one of her students said, “Well, I hope I see you again.” Oh, bless it all. That’s too much. This isn’t how it’s supposed to be. In beginning literacy, we teach them that every good story has a beginning, middle, and an end… but your ending just got interrupted. I get you, teachers. In a week’s time, you’ve gone from being overlooked and underpaid, to now finally being recognized as some of the most important players who keep our world spinning. You’re the glitter and the glue. And I hear you saying, “Right. We knew that, actually. Now can everybody just follow directions so we can get this virus under control and I can have my students back? We’ve got work to do.” I hear you, teachers. I get you. You can call it work, but really it’s love. You had more loving to do this year, and you thought you had more time. I can’t fix it for you. But I know a thing or two about grief, and there’s a lot to be said for naming what is sad and letting it be sad. So I can sit in the space with you, I can lie awake at night with you on my mind, and I can get up to tell you this: the grief is real and valid and yours. Grief means you loved well. Thank you for loving our kids this hard, this much, this well.

Good Afternoon Fairfield Families! Just a reminder that online/remote learning will begin on Monday, March 30. Most students have received their materials and personal belongings. Families who do not have internet service at home have been contacted and arrangements have been made for your students to continue learning. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the district office or your child's teacher.
Last night the USD #310 Board of Education approved a Continuous Learning Plan for Fairfield students that is set to launch on Monday, March 30th, 2020. PK-3 parents will be contacted by their teachers (either by phone, email, or a packet sent home today with the child's things) and 4th-12th grade students need to check their previously established emails, Google Classrooms, or DOJO accounts. They may also have packets sent home with their things today that have instructions on where to begin. If you have questions (students or parents) please don't hesitate to email teachers.
To: Fairfield Parents/Guardians From: Scott Flaming, Technology Director Thank you for your help during this unprecedented time by assisting in the continuation of your child's learning. We are here to help your child get the resources they need in order to keep them on a successful track for their educational studies. Part of those resources will include a laptop they would normally be using at school. Your student's laptop has filtering that was designed for use while on school premises, and it's important for you to know that the filtering probably won't work correctly off-site, especially for elementary students. These chromebooks do, however, have a history in the chrome browser designed not to be erased by the student. Some suggested practices may include having the student complete work on their laptop in a common gathering area of a room like the kitchen or living room. Parents can also periodically check the history of the browser. If you need technical assistance, please feel free to contact Scott Flaming at email@example.com.
Parents and Students: If you have school library books at home, please feel free to return them tomorrow when you pick up all of your belongings! We will have someone here to collect them! Thank you!
Fairfield Students and Parents, During this time of uncertainty we want you to know that we're here for you. If you are in need of social services, mental health resources or just someone to listen please feel free to contact either Janet Barlow at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rachel Barlow at email@example.com.

USD 310 Student Supply Pick-Up Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time! Please let your children know that everyone here at Fairfield is missing them and we are eager to see them again! Teachers will be reaching out to students in the next couple of days. We have arranged times for you to pick up your students belongings. This will take place on Wednesday, March 25 from 9-12 and then again from 2-5. Please pull up in front of the high school/middle school entrance. A staff member will communicate with you regarding for whom you are picking up supplies for and then deliver them to your vehicle. The idea behind this method is to limit the amount of contact with adults/children during this exchange. Please be patient with us during this process, stay in your vehicle as we are allowed a limited number of staff members per KDHE rules. If parents are unable to pick up items during this time, please contact your building principals to make alternate arrangements for pick up!

Ready for some good news??? Our very own BRENDA UNRUH (Fairfield USD #310 Math Teacher) has been chosen to be inducted to the Kansas Teachers' Hall of Fame. The official induction ceremony is scheduled to be held later in June. We are so happy for Mrs. Unruh and very proud that she is a Fairfield Falcon!
Fairfield Staff decided to give up their scheduled Spring Break and are working on finishing up our district's Continuous Learning Plan, set to launch next week. What is Continuous Learning? Just as the name implies, this will allow Kansas students to continue learning despite school buildings being closed for the rest of the year. Fairfield's instructional model will include a blending of non-technology and virtual platforms. We are working on our Continuous Learning Plan, while at the same time following the guidance of our local health departments and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. We will focus on essential learning for students and use materials, resources and platforms that already are in place. Each teacher will have "office hours," where they can be contacted if a student or parent has questions. Our Technology Director will also be available to help with this process. Right now we are looking for area businesses and/or churches that are willing to share internet access to those that park near their buildings. If your group will provide this and has an unlimited plan, please contact our district office at 620-596-2152. Thanks for your help and support. Stay tuned for more details and also for the announcement of when student supplies will be available for pick-up. This will most likely be a situation where you drive up to school, stay in your car, and a staff member will deliver your student's things to your car. The USD #310 School Board will meet Tuesday, 3/24/2020 at 7:00 p.m. to examine and approve the Continuous Learning Plan. We just published a link that you can use to view this meeting.
Here is the link for the special USD #310 BOE meeting on 3/24/2020 at 7 p.m. https://youtu.be/Wfk11NubUjs

We hope this may answer some of your questions during this time of uncertainty. FAQ Can I come get my things (or my child’s things) from school? Not yet, but soon. We will let you know. Right now our plan is to deliver most of the things you will need to you, if you are unable to come get them. Can I come to school? Not now. We have been advised to keep everyone out this week. Will the teachers come back? Yes. We will have an entire week of planning to prepare for our continuous education plan. Can students eventually come to school for things like shop classes? That may or may not happen, but we know that we must stay below the groups of 10 for now. How will online learning work? We will put together an awesome plan and share the details with you later when they are available. What if I don’t have the internet at home, or if my internet data plan is limited? We are looking at options for you to be able to have the internet. If all else fails, your student will do a more traditional type of schoolwork. Are the meals going to continue? Yes, even during spring break. We are working on a possible plan to use our buses to deliver meals to country kids. Are the meals free? Yes, for ages 1-18. At this time, we can’t sell meals for adults. That may be an option later. What if I have other questions? Please be patient, as this is a developing situation and we may not have all the answers yet. Our principals can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org (FMS & FHS) and dsanromani@usd310 (PreK and K-6). Our daycare director can be reached at email@example.com. These people may be able to help answer some of your questions. Is this going to work? Yes, we will make it work. We will be stronger on the other side of this situation.
Reminder that meals will be delivered today. You will receive meals for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday in today’s delivery.
Today, March 17, 2020 Governor Laura Kelly announced all school facilities will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. This will place tremendous hardship on our families and staff, and impact the social and emotional well-being of our students. We have been working on contingency plans since mid-March, including how we can continue to meet the ongoing learning needs of our students and provide meals for our students as well. Our staff and board of education are also working on other critical issues, such as what this means for our seniors, how this will affect next school year and what impact this will have on our employees. We will provide updates on these issues as soon as the information is available. We are committed to working together as a community to support one another throughout these unprecedented times, and communication will remain a top priority. We will continue updating you on our Live Feed portion of our website as well as on our official Facebook page. We will make all-calls once our plan is in place to share our educational plans with all of you. Call the district office at 620-596-2152 if you are not on our All Call list at present. As a reminder, this school closure is in response to the current public health crisis. The focus should remain on preventing the spread of the coronavirus, or COVID-19 as it is also referred to. Please be mindful of the following: Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing. Cough/sneeze into your sleeve or a tissue. Keep sick children at home Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.

This is being done statewide as an effort to stem the spread of COVID-19. Please try over the next two weeks to avoid being in large groups of people. The District Office will remain open, and custodial staff will report to do a deep cleaning.
