Remote Instruction March 19, 2021
Staff Vaccination Day
Dear Fairport Schools Community,
I am pleased to announce that the Lake County Health Department will provide Fairport Schools employees their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccination on March 19, 2021. The Lake County Health Department has assigned the date of the vaccine. It appears that in excess of 90% of our employees have signed up to be vaccinated.
Fairport Harbor Schools will revert to remote instruction on Friday, March 19, 2021, in order to accommodate the vaccination schedule.
This group of eligible employees includes; teachers, student teachers, certified support staff, custodians, paraprofessionals, secretaries, maintenance personnel, food service workers, coaches, and administrators.
We understand this change will result in yet another disruption for families; please bear with us so that all of our staff members who choose to vaccinate against COVID-19 have the opportunity to do so.
Although this is a big step in helping to protect all of our K-12 school employees from COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and officials from the State of Ohio, Ohio Department of Health, and the Lake County Board of Health maintain that those who are vaccinated can still be carriers and spreaders. Wearing masks, social distancing, and washing/sanitizing hands will remain important for the foreseeable future.
Thank you for your continued support.
Virtual 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.

In the spirit of maintaining this opportunity for our public to participate in these virtual school board meetings, interested persons may submit written public comments via this electronic form. The Board will collect the public participation information up to one hour before the Regular Meetings for inclusion in the meeting.

Making Sense of College Loan Options will be offered on Wednesday, March 10, 2021, 6:30 p.m.: Subsidized vs. unsubsidized loans? Parent PLUS vs. private loan? I got in, I'm excited, but now how do I pay? Once you receive your college financial aid offer letter, you know the bottom line cost. Often, there is a gap between the aid and the bill - loans can be used to fill that gap. Learn more about available loan options and their impact on your future.
The civic club will be sponsoring a coloring contest for our McKinley students. Next week your child will receive a coloring page from the civic club. Each student may color their picture and turn it into their classroom teacher. They must include their name, teacher's name and Grade level on the back of the sheet. The coloring sheets will be voted on and there will be one winner per grade level K-5. The winners will each receive an Easter basket full of goodies. The civic club is also kind enough to be supplying one candy bar per child ( including preschool).
If your child is a remote learner please feel free to stop at the office to pick up a coloring sheet and candy bar after the winners have been announced.
All completed pictures are due to McKinley by March 10, 2021

Thank you FHS Graduate Brian Schiffbauer for coming back to Fairpirt today to talk with our student-athletes about the college recruitment experience! Knowledge is power! If you want to take your game to the next level, you need knowledgeable people around you to help you. Good job to those student-athletes who attended today and if you missed the presentation due to classes, etc, please get in touch with Fairport's Head Football Coach Cameron Ruff to get a copy of the zoom link!
Also, please join me in giving a HUGE thank you to Laura Brown Schiffbauer - our Fairport Harbor Athletic Booster Treasurer! Laura has served the Fairport Harbor Athletic Boosters as treasurer for the past 20 years! Even after her own two children finished high school, she was committed to the athletic programs at the school so she stayed involved. Laura has been an incredible volunteer and we are so thankful for her. She handles all the finances, including invoices, payments, tax documents, filings, etc. She is the heart ❤️ of the Fairport Athletic Boosters and has gone above and beyond to support coaches and student-athletes in a ton of behind the scenes work. Thank you Laura for being a volunteer - you are appreciated by all of us! #20yearsandcounting #skipperpride

Fairport Boys Basketball Season ended tonight with a 74-60 loss to Independence in the OHSAA Div 4 Sectional Final - the Skippers finished with a record of 16-8, which is more wins than the last 3 yrs combined. What a ride it’s been! Thank you SENIORS. You were a fun group to watch. You played hard and showed leadership. To the underclassmen: some of you have one year left, some have more - you've got the off season to improve. Get better. Work harder than the person next to you. Push yourselves! You owe it to yourself to be the best version of you that you can be. Go Skippers - get to work! ⚓🏀
