Sports Events Expectations In years past, youth support for Fairbury High School home fall events - football and volleyball has been tremendous! In fact, since opening the sports complex, the attendance at our events has exceeded most expectations. We wish to create an environment in which families with children of all ages may enjoy the game. We also want to insure the safety of all guests, including our community’s youth. As such, families are reminded of the following expectations and guidelines for youth attending home fall events: All students below the 7th grade are required to be accompanied by a paying parent or responsible adult in order to attend any home games. Please be advised that adults are responsible for the school-age guest(s) accompanying them to the game as well as their own children. Students who are not accompanied by a responsible adult will not be allowed to attend or remain at home contests. Jefferson Intermediate students are required to sit either with their parents. Central Elementary students are required to sit either with their parents, older siblings or with the parent of a friend. Jr-Sr High School students are encouraged to sit in the student section located in the front south corner of the complex.’ Any horseplay, tag, or “pick up” football games inside the sports complex are not allowed. The safest place for youth is always inside the athletic complex. Failure to follow these guidelines or loitering by students may result in removal from the stadium and at a minimum, students will not be allowed to attend any further home high school games for this season. As always, student safety at all Jr and Sr High events is of prime importance. These measures will more effectively ensure the enjoyment of all persons attending varsity football events hosted by Fairbury Jr-Sr High School.

Birthday Treats, Snacks and Drinks in School In consideration of instructional time, equity and safety for students with severe, life-threatening food allergies and in alignment with our district's health and wellness policy, birthday treats, snacks and drinks (other than water) may not be brought from home to be shared or distributed at school. Teachers and school staff may provide non-food and non-drink incentives and rewards in classrooms at their discretion. The Principal's Office will provide recognition of each student’s birthday celebration, as appropriate. Teachers may also choose to recognize students’ birthdays in accordance with this policy. The two annual PTA-sponsored parties held at school (Halloween and Valentine’s Day)are an exception to this policy and with careful consideration given to all potential food allergies. Any other food, snacks or drinks provided at school, outside of the daily school meals program, must have prior approval by the Principal. Delivery of gifts/balloons to students during the school day is not encouraged. However, students will be notified of deliveries at the end of the school day and are not permitted to transport balloons on district buses or other school vehicles.
