    Walkers are escorted out of the building, along the side of the building, and wait in the Kindergarten playground.


    Hot lunches are available daily, as well as regular or chocolate milk. If your child wishes to purchase a hot lunch, he or she needs to pay for it before school in the cafeteria. The cost is $1.75 per meal, including milk. Volunteers to help assist younger students and supervise the lunchroom are always welcome.

    Students are expected to be at school on time each day. Call the office to report your child’s absence that day.  


    On rainy, snowy, and very cold days (temps below freezing), Kindergarten-3rd grades should enter through the front doors and assemble quietly by their classroom door. Grades 4th-6th are to enter through the front and assemble in the cafeteria for teacher pickup.

    Snow Days

    School closings will be announced on the radio and television stations. Automated phone calls are placed and information will also be posted on our district website. Assume school is open unless you hear otherwise, do not call the school if such an event occurs.

    Yellow Bus Service

    Attendance is mandatory on snowy days when school is open, but there is no yellow bus service. Parents/guardians should have a back-up transportation plan in place to avoid unexcused absences.


    Fairvew has developed a code of behaviors and expectations which complies with Cincinnati Board of Education policies. The information will be available in the Student and Parent Handbooks.


    Visits from parents/guardians are welcome during school hours. Visitors must sign-in to the visitor list in the main office and wear a visitor’s badge.
