Fairbanks Local School has a long history of supporting our military Veterans and those currently serving. We recognize and appreciate their sacrifices to our country, and try often to find ways to show them our appreciation by participating and holding events and programs for them or by participating in community events that recognize veterans.
In April 2019, Fairbanks Local Schools launched a new page on its website that shows our renewed committment to these service members and their families, including any students we might have whose parents were or are in the military. The resource links on this page are for anyone in our community who might need further support and assistance.
Our staff will be receiving information to better understand and support any military families in our district.
In addition to continuing to support events honoring Veterans, such as the annual Middle School Veterans Day breakfast and program, the Fairbanks Board of Education adopted the following resolution on April 15, 2019.
