Thank you for making the first week of school a successful one! Listed below are a few updates to the morning elementary drop-off routine. We hope this will help with some of the street congestion in the morning. Please remember our number one concern is always the safety of our children. A few minutes of taking our time and staying alert can help keep everyone safe. - The Elementary car drop-off entry will begin at the MS entrance. - There will be TWO LANES when entering the Elementary parking lot. The two lanes will merge into ONE DROP-OFF LANE in front of the building. - Students will be dropped off north of the Elementary ramp. - Parents/Guardians walking their children into the building may park on the east side of the Elementary parking lot. - If you have to exit your vehicle, we ask that you pull aside to the handicapped parking spaces. - After your child has safely exited the vehicle, you may cautiously proceed to the left and bypass the drop-off lane.
Dear Parents, Students, and Fair Grove School Community, Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! The FGS team has been hard at work preparing for everything a new school year brings. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you in order to ensure our students reach their highest potential in becoming success ready graduates. That journey begins the first day of school on Tuesday, August 23rd. Over the past few years, FGS students and staff have been met with unprecedented challenges dealing with the pandemic and the everchanging guidance associated with it. It is now time to look forward as we go back to the timeless fundamentals that make Fair Grove Schools what it is today. A school where character, respect, self-discipline and community matters. A place where the mission of working as one school community preparing all students for the real world, isn’t just a slogan. Throughout the school year the FGS team will be engaging students in active learning experiences, while encouraging parents to partner with us in teaching the importance of character, accountability, attendance, and respect. This is truly a team effort worth the work and grit required. As we move forward in this partnership we would like to invite our entire Fair Grove family to Meet the Teacher Night this evening from 4-7 PM at all three district buildings. The FGS staff and I feel privileged to be a part of the Fair Grove School community. We appreciate your support and look forward to working with you this 2022-2023 school year.
We are excited to welcome our students back to campus on Tuesday! As you know, traffic will be more congested around campus these first few days. Please be aware of the protocols that will be in place to provide a smooth transition in the elementary drop-off lane. 1. There will be no entry allowed at the stairs. All students will proceed to the ramp entry. 2. Walk-in parking will only be available on the west side of the parking lot. There will be no walk-in parking on the east side. 3. Cars dropping off students need to pull forward and unload past the ramp.
Parents and Guardians, As the 22-23 school year approaches, we want to remind you about the significant change in school meals. School Meal Programs across the country will return to normal (pre-pandemic) procedures for the 2022-2023 school year as the Covid-19 USDA waivers expired on June 30, 2022. This means breakfast and lunch meals are no longer free to all students but will be based on income eligibility. While many of our Fair Grove students still qualify for free and reduced-price meals, too many aren’t enrolled. Many families may be eligible (or newly eligible) and may not know they qualify for these meals. Others simply may not know how to apply. The challenge now is to ensure Fair Grove families know the free and reduced meal program exists and how to apply in the midst of these difficult economic times. Completing a free and reduced meal application is a quick and easy, confidential online application. You can always apply if you are not sure and see the results. We are seeing many families qualify that didn't think they would. If approved, your child will not be singled out or identified. Their meals simply become free or reduced in the system and they slide their identification card like normal. To apply for free and reduced meals go to www.fairgroveschools.net and click on the free and reduced meals tab for further instructions.

A message from Officer Bond: It was brought to our attention that an anonymous Instagram Account referencing Fair Grove School was posting vaguely threatening statements and friending some of our students. After a thorough investigation alongside the Fair Grove Police Department and Missouri Highway Patrol it was determined that this account and message is meant for a Fair Grove School in North Carolina and is in no way connected to our school. There is no threat to our school or community whatsoever.

Please discuss the dangers of social media with your children and make sure they are aware of this way that they can tell us if they think something is wrong: https://www.fairgroveschools.net/article/613406
Parents/Guardians: Please check your email for a message from the Fair Grove Transportation Department regarding upcoming bus changes.
This is an official Fair Grove R-X School District message: We have become aware of a troubling post that has been shared widely this week on the social media platform TikTok as well as others like Instagram and Facebook. Student and staff safety is our primary concern. Out of an abundance of caution, our school resource/police officer is working with the local Police Department to ensure a safe and secure environment for our students. We will have additional security in place in each building tomorrow morning.
