CASTLE Program at FYI The FYI Center will now be having their CASTLE Program on Mondays from 3-6, Wednesdays from 3-6, and Fridays from 2-6. Here is a link to the Family and Youth Involvement Calendar
Sickness If your child is ill...PLEASE keep them home. They must be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to school. If you take them to the doctor, please ask the doctor for a note so that their attendance can be adjusted.
Attendance Message Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school -- and themselves. Here are some habits to start building to help students learn that going to school on time, every day is important. Set a regular bedtime & morning routine. Layout clothes & pack backpacks the night before. Don't let your child stay home unless she is truly sick. Keep in mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home. If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers, school counselors, or other parents for advice on how to make her feel comfortable and excited about learning. Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor or another parent. Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session. Good attendance will help children do well throughout school, college and work.
A message from the FYI Center Hello everyone! I hope you all had a happy and safe winter break! With school returning to the session, our programming is starting up again for the next semester. We follow both the FPS and BVCA's calendars. Our upcoming BVCA closed days are: Mon Feb 17th - President's Day, Fri Apr 24th - Arbor Day, We've been pretty lucky with the weather so far, but our policy is that if the school closes or ends early due to weather, we will also close programming for the day for safety purposes. Thank you for your dedication to Fairbury's youth!
