Please note that the District is sharing these community resources for families in need of childcare (day camps, after school options and other day activities on virtual school days). Each of these opportunities have limited capacity for students. The District does not sponsor nor endorse these community resources that have been shared with us.

K-5 Remote Learning Activities
The Remote Learning Extension Activity Website provides extension activities for math, literacy, and each of the special area subjects. The website will be updated weekly. Math and literacy lessons that the specialists deliver each week will be recorded and posted for students to review at their convenience. Please use these activities as you see fit to supplement student learning and engagement on the remote learning days.
Free Meals Extended
ALL STUDENTS receive FREE breakfast and lunch (every school day)!
Parents/guardians, your child(ren) can receive one free breakfast and/or one free lunch meal each school day, as part of federal funds extended by Congress until Dec. 31 or until funds run out.
Students do not have to be on a free or reduced meal plan - this is applicable to all students. No eligibility is required.
Students who would like to receive a breakfast and/or lunch may do so anytime by simply telling our Food Service staff their name and/or by using their student ID card (secondary schools).
We are also offering meals for remote days (hybrid and full virtual) for pick-up at 3 locations. Parents requesting a meal on remote learning days must pre-order. Visit our website at fairport.org and click on “Departments” and then “Food Service” to complete the pre-order form.
If you have any questions, please contact our Food Service office at 585-421-2323.
Families are encouraged to apply anytime during the school year (or summer) for free and reduced meals, especially if a parent/guardian becomes unemployed, has a decrease in household income, or an increase in family size. The District is encouraging families to apply now if they have experienced any of the above, as they may be eligible for meals at school for their children.
Safe School Helpline uses a unique, automated service that allows callers to report a concern 24 hours a day, seven days a week, confidentially and anonymously if they choose. You may call the Helpline at 1-800-4-1-VOICE ext. 359 (1-800-418-6423) or text the word “TIPS” to 66746.
The Fairport CSD is here to support our students, families and staff. The District encourages you to contact your school principal, assistant principal, mental health staff, or any staff member you know. Visit your school website here for contact information.
For elementary parents/guardians who have chosen to pick up their child(ren), please be sure to familiarize yourself with the new PikMyKid app that our four elementary schools are using this year to help speed up the dismissal process for students in grades K-5. More information was provided by your child(ren)’s school, but as a reminder please do the following:
Download and register through the app “PikMyKid”
Place the PikMyKid Car Tag in your front window (this will be mailed home to you)
Use the app to make any dismissal changes by 11:00 a.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
You can make changes any time on Wednesday, Saturday, or Sunday
When you enter school property, you will see a stopping point. Hit the “Announce Button” on the app. It will turn green and alert us you are in line to pick up your child(ren). This will help us sequence students in the same order you entered the school property car line. If you do not have the app at that time, an adult will be there to help you.
Families can easily assign pick-up permissions to other people for certain days, times and pick-up modes. You can also set up a schedule to repeat throughout the year and update as necessary.
