Hello Fairfield Community! Our phones are currently not working. We will be back in school tomorrow, Tuesday, October 31. A few reminders:
1. Costumes may not be worn to school.
2. Candy should stay at home, please.
3. There is no school on Friday, November 3, due to parent conferences.
I will do a phone blast message tomorrow, assuming our phones are operational.
MESSAGE TO THE COMMUNITY
from BRENDA COMSTOCK
As a precaution, BFA St. Albans went into a secure the school command today due a student report. There was a post on a social media site that the student interpreted as threatening. School Resource Officer Will Furnari acted immediately and contacted St. Albans Police Department.
Both local elementary schools, SACS and SATEC, went into a modified lockdown mode as a precautionary measure, which was coordinated by our School Resource Officers (SRO) Will Furnari and Roger Langevin.
Upon investigation it was clear that there was no threat. At no point did we have to adjust our schedule or take any extraordinary measures. All schools were cleared of threat and returned to normal activity.
We are thankful that our SROs and the St. Albans Police acted swiftly to ensure there was no danger to our students, and that our safety protocols were followed.

Fairfield Center School will have counselors and crisis workers from Northwestern Counseling and Support Services at school on Monday and Tuesday from 8am to 4pm. These professionals will speak with any children, parents, or community members who need help in coping with our community tragedy. The gym will be open for children if parents wish to speak to counselors alone.
