Jefferson Intermediate Bulletin for Saturday, October 19, 2019
Sports Events Expectation In years past, youth support for Fairbury High School home varsity football games 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 football events: All students below the 7th grade are required to be accompanied by a paying parent or responsible adult in order to attend home varsity football games. These adults and their children may bring additional students who would be under their supervision. 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 or in the upper north section of the stadium designated for Jefferson Intermediate students. Central Elementary students are required to sit either with their parents, older sibling 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. Any activities occurring outside of the sports complex are not supervised by school personnel and families must assume all risk and responsibility for their child’s behavior and safety. 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 football games for this season. As always, student safety at all FHS events is of prime importance. These measures will more effectively ensure the enjoyment of all persons attending varsity football events hosted by FHS.

Attendance Awareness Here are a few facts about why school attendance matters: Kindergarten and First Grade students who are chronically absent have an 81% percent chance of reading BELOW grade level. Students who cannot read at grade level by the end of 3rd grade are 4 times more likely to drop out of high school. By Fourth Grade, chronically absent students score an average of 12 points lower on the National Assessment of Education Progress. By 6th grade, chronic absence becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school. When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chances for graduating. We want every student to be successful in school. That's why it's important to be here. Every day. All the way.
