All Students and Parents
*Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the procedures for the 2020 Summer School program at Fairfield High School have been adapted to reflect the safety and wellness of our students and staff. As a result, all 2020 Summer School courses will be held virtually. This is a change from our normal Summer School program; however, our staff will continue to provide students with an excellent Fairfield education through a distance learning plan. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. Please click on the links below to view detailed 2020 Summer School Information, along with the link to register:
