BUILDING ACCESS

Our building offices are currently closed for the summer. The district office is open Monday - Friday from 7:30am - 3:00pm. 

Throughout the summer the district conducts many permanent improvement projects and summer deep cleaning. These efforts leave portions of the buildings inaccessible to visitors. Students should not be in the building unless they are here for a scheduled event (sports, band, orientation, etc.) and under the supervision of a coach or advisor. Staff wishing to access classrooms should contact the maintenance department prior to entry to ensure the area is accessible.

SUMMER SCHOOL WORK

Summer school work was given to enrolled Fairbanks students at the end of the 2021-2022 school year. If you are new to the district, or misplaced your assignment, please see below for school work by subject/grade level.

FHS English - All grade levels

8th Grade English

7th Grade English

SCHEDULES AND CLASSROOM ASSIGNMENTS

Before schedules or classroom assignments are released, please ensure you have completed the following:

Residency: If you proved residency for the 2021-2022 school year with a Residence Affidavit, you must complete a new one for the 2022-2023 school year. This information should be submitted to Kelly Heiss in the Administrative Offices. If you have moved, please submit a new proof of residence to the building office. A copy of the residency affidavit can be found here.

PowerSchool: The district is moving all directory information to PowerSchool rather than Final Forms. Families will sign into PowerSchool and click "Forms" to verify contact information and read and acknowledge forms. Families will receive an email with instructions.

Final Forms - Student Athletes: Final Forms will be maintained for our student-athletes. If your child is participating in Fairbanks athletics, please update your Final Forms account as well.

If you have completed the aforementioned items, middle and high school schedules will be mailed in early August. If you do not have a schedule by August 12th, please contact the building office. 

Students with questions or changes to their schedule should contact Mrs. Hooper (Middle School) or Mrs. Gonglik (High School)

Elementary school classroom assignments will also be sent in early August. Please contact the building office if you do not have a letter with your child's teacher by August 12th. 

SCHOOL FEES

School fees will be managed by My School Bucks. This provides families the option to pay online with credit card. Cash, check and money order are still options for fee payment if you choose. Families will receive an invoice through email once the fees are posted to My School Bucks. As a reminder the fees are as follows:

Elementary School: $55/student

Middle School: $50/student and an additional $10 if your 7th or 8th grade student has elected Art

High School: Fees are determined based on courses

Fees will be invoiced after the start of school. If you have applied for Free or Reduce Lunch, please wait until you receive your notification on that application before you pay your fees.

Transportation

All drivers will receive their new student information (if you have completed registration) on Wednesday, August 3rd.  They have been asked to contact each new student's family before August 15th to provide bus number and pick-up/drop-off times.  If you do not hear from your driver or have other transportation questions, please email Beth Wyckoff, Transportation Coordinator.
