Public Participation Request Form
The Fairport Harbor Exempted Village Board of Education values its engagement with the community and believes that providing an opportunity for public comment during Regular Board Meetings supports that engagement and provides transparency. Though proving an opportunity for public comment is not a requirement, we would like to continue this practice even while meeting virtually or in-person. In the spirit of maintaining this opportunity for our public to participate in school board meetings, interested persons may submit written public comments via this electronic form prior to the Board meeting. The Board will collect the public participation information up to one hour before the Regular Meetings for inclusion in the meeting.

Dear Skipper Families,
In Fairport Harbor, student safety is always our top priority. When our region receives a blast of winter weather it is often accompanied questions about school closing in the event of dangerous conditions.
The decision regarding school closures begins early and involves multiple factors:
Parents can always choose to keep their children home if they truly feel there is a weather-related safety risk. These absences will be recorded as excused, with make-up work provided to the student, if the Superintendent designates the day as a Severe Weather Day in the school district.
Please do not hesitate to contact the district if you require additional information in this regard.
