Regular daily attendance is very important. It assists children in their academic progress and helps them to be more secure in their school group. It also gives them an appreciation of the importance of education. All outside activities should be scheduled after school hours. Dental and medical appointments should also be arranged for after school hours whenever possible.
Promptness will help your child with establishing a sense of responsibility and dependability. In order for parents to be sure their children have arrived safely at school each day, the Fairfield Public Schools has an absence call-in program. We ask that the parent calls our special number 203-255-8495 any day their child will not be attending school or if the child will be arriving late to school.
Our call-in voicemail receives calls from 9:00 pm through 9:00 am the next day. If we do not hear from the parent/guardian, the student will be marked absent and the attendance secretary or dean will contact the parent/guardian.
If students arrive to school after 8:10 am, an adult must escort them to the office to sign them in and obtain a late pass.
