Please visit our website should you be uncertain as to school hours.
All buses will be running as of Thursday, September 1, 2022. Information regarding bussing is on our website. Students must be registered with CBE Transportation to ride a school bus. If you have not already registered, it may take 2-4 weeks for your child to be registered for CBE Transportation.
We ask all parents to be considerate of family's homes when picking up and dropping off their children at the bus stop. Please do not park across on in people's driveways.
Parking is limited around Fairview School and is regulated by Calgary Parking Authority and Calgary City Police. Please obey all signs and park, or drop off your students, in the appropriate areas.
Fairview does not offer cafeteria services. Students are expected to bring a lunch and snack with them. All lunch items; bag, bottle and left over food are to be taken home on a daily basis. Students eat in designated areas and are to behave appropriately during the lunch break. Students need to bring a lunch that does not require heating and the appropriate utensils with which to eat their lunch. Grades 4-7 must remain on campus for the lunch break. Grades 8-9 are allowed to leave the school campus during the lunch break. Although Grades 8-9 are not restricted to the school campus for lunch, students are responsible to their parents and the school for their behaviour in the community. Should they choose to eat their lunch at the school, they will have a designated area to do so. Students choosing to exit the building at the beginning of the lunch break will not be allowed to re-enter the school until the end of the lunch break, weather permitting.
For the 2022-23 school year, we are asking that students in Grades 4-6 not bring cell phones to school. Students in Grade 7-9 who choose to bring cell phones to school will be asked to leave their cell phones in their locker during class time. Cell phones are a distraction to student learning and therefore should not be in class. Students who forget to leave their cell phones in their locker will have a designated place in the classroom to store their phone during the class. Should parents/guardians need to be in contact with their child, they can call the front office and we can either get the message to your child or have them call home.
Fairview Student Picture Day will be held on Monday, September 12, 2022. All Students are to be in their Formal Uniform.
An information package of important documents for all students will be sent home during the first week of school. Some of these documents may be done electronically and others must be a paper copy. More information will be sent to families during the first week of school. Please be sure to read this package and return all forms by the required date.
While we may be returning to a more “normal" school year, we continue to as parents/guardians to keep your child at home should they be feeling ill.
We look forward to experiencing a somewhat “normal" school year and are excited to welcome everyone back to school.
