In Case of Snow

Winter has arrived and you never know when or if we will see the white stuff on the ground in Seattle. Here are some ways to get Fairview's snow closure information - just in case :)

1. Check your email - an email will be sent to all parents through our RenWeb program - if we do not have your current email please update in the office.

2. Visit Fairview's web site (fcsseattle.org). 

3. Call 206-832-2288

4. Listen to local news - we often follow Seattle Public Schools for snow closures and will call into the major TV stations. We will not have late starts - other schools districts do this in order to insure they get all there buses out giving the roads time to improve.

We know there are many families that live more north where snow can be more of an issue - we make the call to close by what it looks like in and around Fairview. If we remain open and there is snow on the ground where you are and your route to school does not seems safe please wait until it is before leaving.   


Fairview Robotics Club

Fairview's robotic team competed in the First Lego League qualifying event Odle Middle School, just south of Factoria on December 12. They did an AWESOME job and came in 12th out of 38 teams this is AMAZING for their first time competing!



Open House

January 28th we will be hosting  our ANNUAL Open House. This will start at 6p! This is a time that we will open our school to visiting families for a preview of classrooms and the wonderful educational program we offer at  Fairview. This would be a great opportunity for you to invite your friends to visit  the classrooms and ask questions about curriculum, activities, etc.

We do have a few PRE-K, K and middle school spaces available for next year. 

AND---Don't forget about the Win-Win referral program!

from the West Wing

New beginings. Aren’t you thankful for new beginnings? A new year is upon us and that always brings to mind new beginnings. This past Sunday at Fairview Church we sang the following song. It spoke to my hear then and continues to do so today. As you read the words, let them sink into your very being; hold on to …
