    Drop Off and Parking Plans 2021

    A Letter From Our Superintendent Mr. Scoville
    August 19, 2021

    Dear Farwell Families:
    We understand that the beginning of the school year is an exciting, sometimes anxious time for students and families alike. We also know that students have grown accustomed to having an Open House before school starts to help transition from summer. Last year, due to COVID restrictions, we were unable to do any sort of Open House prior to school starting, and while it was new and different, students adjusted surprisingly well! Farwell is a small district, and as such, most of the staff know the students, and the students know the staff. We had staff posted at every entrance – teachers, administrators, secretaries, paraprofessionals, custodians, kitchen staff, and bus drivers were all available to help students find their classes. And it worked very well!
    This year, because of the construction, we are not able to open our buildings to the public before the first day of school. Construction crews, custodians, and maintenance personnel have all worked REALLY hard this summer to meet the deadline of August 30th so we can have students here. We don’t want to delay the start of school, because that could delay our end until the middle of June!
    Skyward Family Access will be available in the next couple days for students and families to log in and find their class schedules and locker assignments. It will be helpful for Middle and High School students to have this information before school starts, but if they don’t have access to a printer, that’s ok – we will help them get it on the first day. School supply lists are available on the school website by grade for elementary and middle school. High school teachers will let the students know what they need on the first day when they go over the syllabus for each class.
    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call the building offices before the first day and we’ll help you in any way we can. If you need help getting into Skyward Family Access, we can help with that, too.
    Construction is messy, but it will be worth it once it is finished – our safer, brighter, more secure buildings and classrooms will benefit kids for years to come. As soon as things are wrapped up, we are hoping to have a community open house so everyone can come in and see what has been done. Just wait until you see all the upgrades!
    Steve Scoville
