Dear Fairfield City Schools Parents and Employees,
Based on new recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, Fairfield City School System will require facial coverings inside buildings and school buses until further notice. All students, employees, and visitors must wear masks -- regardless of vaccination status. We will revisit this guideline at the end of August, as we monitor COVID developments at that time.
CDC officials made the call due a surge in COVID-19 numbers, including the Delta variant cases.
"In areas with substantial and high transmission, CDC recommends fully vaccinated people wear masks in public indoor settings to help prevent the spread of the Delta variant and protect others. This includes schools," says Dr. Rochelle Walensky, Director for the Centers for Disease Control.
We continue to encourage employees and students of appropriate age to be vaccinated. Vaccination clinics are taking place throughout the area. Call 205-858-2221 for a location near you.
Finally, students return to school August 9th.
- Face to face instruction
- All instruction will be face-to-face. All students will attend classes five days a week, on campus. There is no virtual school this year.
- Is your child registered? Registration is going on right now at your child's school.
