FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Illness, Absence Force Closure of Fairview Elementary

To maintain the health and well-being of our students and staff, we have made the decision to close Fairview Elementary School beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, January 28 - Friday, January 31. These will not be eLearning Days. We have worked closely with our custodial department and the Cass County Department of Health in attempts to reduce the risk of illness spreading across Fairview Elementary, but the number of absences continues to increase. Closing the school will prevent students and staff from direct contact with each other and allow the custodial staff to continue to more thoroughly clean and sanitize the school. None of the district’s other schools are affected by this closing and will continue their normal schedules.
