  • New CCP Students for 2020-2021 School Year Information 4/1/2020

    New CCP Students for 2020-2021 School Year Information 4/1/2020

    This information is intended for students who have NOT yet been admitted to the College Credit Plus program, but intend to participate during the 2020-2021 school year.

    With the current restrictions, Lakeland and Lake Erie College are not able to schedule placement exams for prospective students. The Ohio Department of Education has recently released revised guidance for participation.

    1. The Intent to participate deadline has been extended to May 1, 2020. Please see attached for the Intent to participate.

    2. Depending on the length of the pandemic, colleges cannot test new students for fall term eligibility and admission consideration. In order to meet student eligibility requirements, a student shall have an overall high school grade point average (GPA) of 3.0, if that prospective College Credit Plus (CCP) student has not had the opportunity to complete an assessment exam due to this emergency.

    3. If a prospective CCP student had previously completed an assessment exam and did not meet student eligibility requirements based on those scores, a college can consider that student is eligible if the student has an overall high school grade point average of 3.0.

    4. The institution of higher education still has the opportunity to use institutional standards for admission decisions and placement into courses.

    If at any time you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Jurick at mjurick@fhevs.org.

  • #11 COVID-19 Update NUTRITION Services Updated Info 3/30/20

    #11 COVID-19 Update NUTRITION Services Updated Info 3/30/20

    We realize that many of our students rely on breakfast and lunch that they receive each day at school. We have updated our nutrition plan for the remainder of the mandatory school closure that ensures that students who need these meals will be able to get them.


    We are following guidance from the health department to limit exposure and maintain social distancing. Staff will pass out meals at the Harding Jr/High School, Vine Street entrance near the Fairport Library. A Riverside/Fairport staff member will come to your car to get your student's names and then bring the meals to you. Students do not need to be present, and we would prefer only one person per family to come to pick the meals up. The meal pick-up plan is to protect both staff and families. The school district will provide meal pick-ups on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for the duration of the state-mandated school closure.

  • #9  COVID-19  McKinley Playground Closed

    #9 COVID-19 McKinley Playground Closed

    Dear Fairport Families:

    With the entire state of Ohio, under a stay-at-home order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine ordered public playgrounds to close to limit the spread of coronavirus. We have made the decision to close the playground at McKinley Elementary until further notice to reinforce social distancing and prevent further spread of the virus.

    We encourage our students and families to engage in other outdoor activities, run, bike, hike while still adhering to the social distancing recommendations.

    Thank you for your support and cooperation as we continue to adjust to the ever-evolving health situation in our communities.

    Sincerely,
    FHEVS Administration

    #6 Covid 19 Response 3/20/20 Instruction & Technology

    March 20, 2020
    Dear Fairport Harbor Parents and Guardians,
    The Fairport Harbor Schools recognizes how incredibly difficult the current situation is for our families. Our teachers have been working diligently to assign meaningful instructional content for students to complete away from school. Teachers are making remote learning opportunities available and can track progress as well as provide feedback that will permit students to advance to the next grade level as long as they engage with their teachers and the provided content.
    To involve all of our students, we need to know how we can better assist our families. Please notify your building administrator for McKinley, dfischer@fhevs.org, or Harding krumbarger@fhevs.org, if your child tells you they are unable to access the online learning opportunities. Our teachers and technology department will work with you to make sure your child has the access they need. Many companies are now providing free internet. Please let us know if you do not have the technology for your child to utilize.
    Regardless of the duration of this closure, our education community is determined to do everything in our power to help every student move on to the next grade in the fall and make sure every senior graduate on time! The Fairport School District expects that ALL students will continue their education online. To promote students to the next grade level, students must complete their assigned work, and we will support you through this. Beginning March 30th, the district will be closely monitoring student contributions to their online learning. Please note that the district will observe Spring Break the week of March 22 through March 28, with classes resuming on March 30, 2020.
    Thank you,
    Mrs. Doreen Fischer and Mrs. Katie Rumbarger Principal Principal

  • # 5 COVID-19 Response- 3/18/20 McKinley Parent

    # 5 COVID-19 Response- 3/18/20 McKinley Parent

    Dear Skipper Families, I need to make you aware that on March 18, 2020, a parent called the school to self-report that they have been diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus. We are sharing this information with you because the parent attended March 12, 2020, parent-teacher conferences at McKinley Elementary. They did not have any interaction with students. We have contacted the Lake County Health Department for further guidance and we will keep you apprised of any further developments. Until then, please adhere to all prescribed safety procedures such as social distancing, hand-washing, and all other CDC guidelines. If you have additional concerns, the Ohio Department of Health has opened a call center to answer questions about COVID-19. The call center is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and can be reached at 1-833-427-5634. I am proud of the way everyone in our district has risen to the occasion and am more confident than ever in our ability to overcome this challenge. Stay well Skippers!

    Please download our Quality Profile (2016-2017)

    What is a Quality Profile? The purpose of the Quality Profile is to provide “the rest of the story,” giving the Fairport Harbor community a report on how our schools are performing in the areas that matter most. The Fairport Harbor community believes schools should provide opportunities for students to pursue excellence in many forms. The education we provide goes far beyond what is measured by the Ohio Department of Education standardized tests. The best way to prepare our students for success in college, career, and life is to create opportunities for personalized learning tailored to individual student talents and interests. That is why Fairport students are learning today and leading tomorrow.
