Fairbanks Road Elementary

Instant Connect Message from Mr. Yunker - 9/15/20

Good morning, this is Principal Todd Yunker calling on Tuesday, September 15, with two important announcements for the families of the Fairbanks Road Elementary School community.
First, on Wednesday, September 16 we will have a “material pick-up time” for the remote only students.  Parents can pull up to the front of the school between 1 and 3 pm and we will have any materials that teachers need to send home available. This is for the full remote only students.
Secondly, I want to review the procedures for the afternoon dismissal process.  By now everyone should have downloaded the PikMyKid app.  Once you arrive at school for dismissal, please click on the announce button.   You will not be able to do that until you are at school.  You will then receive what looks like a ticket with your child’s name and ID number on it on your phone.  Please continue to move forward and stay in the pick-up line.  At some point, a staff member with an IPAD, will stop at the car and ask to see your phone with that on it.  This helps to confirm the appropriate person is picking up your child and the staff member will confirm the child is on the list to be picked up.   Parents can delegate someone else to pick-up their child but they have to do it on their app.
Beginning at 3:10, we will begin announcing students 15 at a time so we can load the cars and have them pull out safely.  Please stay in the line and keep the student car tag on the dash until you leave the school grounds.  A staff member with an IPAD has to click on your child’s name to formally dismiss them.  If we miss that because a car pulled out of line, it delays the rest of the dismissal process. We also have quite a few students who need to go into car seats so folks are out and around the cars.  The safety of all the students, parents and staff members is our number one concern.  
With everyone’s cooperation, dismissal will continue to get quicker every day; while keeping everyone safe.
It is great to have students back to school and we greatly appreciate everyone’s patience as we work through all new procedures in and out of the classroom.  Together, we will ensure your children have a wonderful year!

Instant Connect Message from Mr. Yunker - 9/9/20

Good afternoon, this is Todd Yunker, principal of Fairbanks Road Elementary School with a message on Wednesday, September 9.  
The staff at FRS has been working extremely hard in preparation for the new school year.  We are so excited to welcome students back to school tomorrow.
This year will be different for all of us as we have students learning in person and remote for the first time, as well as teaching this way.  We know that there will be a learning curve at first for everyone, so we ask for your patience and flexibility.  
There are two things we need families to do prior to the start of school.  First of all, we need all families to create an account in the PikMyKid app.  Directions on how to do so were in the summer mailing and can be found on the District website at  This program will be used daily as parents have to complete a daily attestation that their child does not have any COVID symptoms and also for our dismissal process.   If you are picking up your child from school, you will need to have this app downloaded on a smartphone or tablet.   
Secondly, all students need to accept the invitation in Google Classroom to join their teacher’s classroom.  Teachers are sending out an invite or a login code via email.  Please refer to the directions on the form that you received when picking up your child’s Chromebook.  For older students, they can check their google email account.   Students in grade K and 1 can use the QR Code that they were given to login.  If you do have any questions, please email your child’s teacher directly.
The staff is looking forward to welcoming the students tomorrow and we look forward to a fantastic school year.
