If your student is planning to participate in a fall sport please check the FHS Athletics website or contact the coach directly to find out whether anything is going on over the summer. Some programs, e.g. Football and Cross Country, do strength training, summer running or even camps. Fall sports online registration starts the first week in August and your student will have to have had a physical within the previous 12 months.
Summer Knight Crew Correspondence
Each student will be assigned a Knight Crew leader. The Knight Crew leaders will also make an effort to contact their freshmen during the summer and then personally call them within just a few days of the first day of school.
The Fairview website

Infinite Campus Did you know that in Infinite Campus (IC) you can not only see your child’s grades, but you can also change key contact information the school uses to reach you? When you log in to your IC account, the ‘District Notices’ bulletin board is automatically opened up for you. If you click on the ‘School Notices’ tab just below, you will open the bulletin board specific to Fairview. This Board may display additional information pertaining to activities going on at the school.
