  • 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:

    • Weather and radar reports
    • Reports from school and village personnel
    • Input and discussions with superintendents from neighboring districts

    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.


    Domenic Paolo, Ph.D.

  • Enrollment, building use are key issues for Lake County school districts 12/11/18

    Enrollment, building use are key issues for Lake County school districts 12/11/18

    Excerpt from article: "Although it is the smallest of Lake County's nine public school districts, Fairport Harbor's 2018-19 enrollment of 852 represents a 35 percent increase from its 2013-14 enrollment of 630.

    Fairport Superintendent Domenic Paolo attributes much of the gain in his district's student population to an open enrollment policy in place since 2006.

    He said while most open enrollment students are coming from Painesville, Painesville Township, Mentor and nearby communities, some are from communities in Geauga and Ashtabula counties.

    The influx of students means the district's two aging schools, McKinley Elementary and Fairport Harding Junior-Senior High, are operating at full capacity and beyond.

    "People want the more-personalized learning experience for students we offer," Paolo said. "To keep doing that, we need to modernize facilities."

    Paolo said the Fairport system in February submitted an application to the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission for state funding to build a new school that would house all of its students in one building.

    The new school would be built on the site of the junior-senior high school. Paolo said the estimated cost of the project is $30 million.

    Because of the economic profile of the village of 3,000, the state commission would provide 92 percent of the funding. The Fairport school board will place a 3-mill bond issue on the ballot to raise the remaining $2.4 million.

    Paolo said the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission has $300 million in its coffers while there are 17 school districts in line for funding before Fairport Harbor.

    The current scenario could have the new bond issue in front of Fairport Harbor voters in 2020."

  • Fairport Harbor Theater Department In The News Herald 11/15/18

    Fairport Harbor Theater Department In The News Herald 11/15/18

    Fairport Harbor Schools Theatre will be performing the classic Neil Simon comedy “The Odd Couple (Female Version)” Nov. 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 18 at 2 p.m. in the Branthoover Auditorium at Fairport Harding High School.
    Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students on a first-come, first-serve basis. The show is rated PG and runs approximately 2 hours. Doors open one hour before show time and seating begins 30 minutes prior to the start of the performance.
    “I wanted to perform a classic comedy as a tribute to Simon who sadly passed away this summer,” says director Johnathan Luster. “Working in a smaller district and with a predominantly female theater department, it was fortunate Neil Simon created a female version of this beloved play. It’s a natural fit for the cast and a lot of fun to perform.”
    In Simon’s “Female” version, Felix Unger and Oscar Madison are at it again, but with a bit of a twist. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version of the play, the roles are changed. Ms. Olive Madison invites the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit and the comedy ensues when Florence Unger arrives on the scene.
    “The characters may have changed,” Luster says, “but the laughter remains the same."
    Making things even more interesting, Olive and Florence will be played by sisters Victoria Palmer, a senior, and Gabrielle Palmer, a junior. Both girls have grown up on the FHS stage since middle school.
    “Playing the role of the messy, laid-back New Yorker opposite Gabby, who plays an uptight and neurotic neat freak, is a dream come true,” Victoria says. “Not many people get to share the stage with family and play such amazing roles.”
    “We have been blessed with amazing directors and opportunities through FHS Theater and we are having a lot of fun,” Gabby says. “I am going to miss this senior class and performing with my sister.

  • PBIS Olympic Day 2/22/19

    PBIS Olympic Day 2/22/19

    Fairport Harding hosted its 3rd Annual Olympic Day competition. As always, the competition started with the world famous lip sync contest with the theme of, “Time.” The teachers began the competition with their rendition of MC Hammer’s Can’t Touch This. There was a standing ovation as they danced their way out of the gym. Mr. JJ Luster and Mr. Tim Hlousek kept the crowd excited with their unique hosting style for the event. In between each of the lip sync performances, there were bonus dance competitions including the Chicken Dance and the Whip and Nae Nae, which was dominated by English teacher, Mrs. Sandra Knight. After the lip sync, which was won by the senior team of Breanna Cremeans and Shyan Apple and their rendition of Queen songs, the relay games began.
    The relay games began with the world-famous balloon pop. Following that, the crowd got excited for the human Hungry Hungry Hippo event, which included a student getting pushed on a scooter while scooping up balls in a laundry basket. It was a fast and furious competition that the crowd couldn’t get enough of. Following that, students raced while balancing ping pong balls on spoons. Overall, it was a great afternoon of fun and camaraderie.
    After our official scorekeeper, Mr. Nathan Yaussy tallied all of the scores, the sophomores came out as the champions. They will have bragging rights for the whole year. Once again, Olympic Day was a huge success. PBIS Team 2 would like to thank our unbiased judges, Mrs. Anna Coll, Mrs. Mary Javins, and Mrs. Becky Darida, as well as our scorekeeper, Mr. Nathan Yaussy. Also a huge shout out to DJ Chris Ruzin. Their help was critical in making it a great day for everyone. The team would also like to thank the following businesses for making generous donations to allow each of our students to wear t-shirts that designated what class they were a part of:
    Harvey’s Farm Market
    Fairport Harbor Academic Boosters
    Rich Lanes

Fairport Harbor Exempted Village School District Quality Profile

  • Please download our Fairport Harbor Schools Quality Profile (2017-2018). 

    You can also review last year's 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.
