Now that Fairmont has remote learning programs, does it intend to enroll more students and therefore decrease the teacher to students ratio?

Hi. Today’s email said fairmont was trying to get a waiver to open despite governor’s school closure guidelines. What is the chance the waiver will get signed for on campus, and what if you are not comfortable sending your child to school until governor clears for school to open? Will you lose your on campus spot if you choose to keep your child home until governor says school may resume ?
Will 20% discount will be applied for the initial deposit, this was deposited during March for 2020-21 school year. Will the difference amount be credited/adjusted?
Since the plans have changed significantly since we paid for the deposit for enrollment, when can we decide to withdraw enrollment and still get a full cash refund?
You stated that you have inquired about a waiver. Are you grouping the campuses together for the waiver? Or breaking out campuses separately to differentiate the community differences? There are not as many COVID cases in south OC compared to North OC
does preschool students need plastic face shield when arriving ?
when someone on the campus tests positive,what's your protocol?
We are asking Fairmont families to select a program: in-person or remote. If you decide you would like to switch programs once the school year begins, you will be allowed to do so at the quarter, space permitting.
We are also providing HEPA filters on our HVAC systems and additional potable hand wash stations at each of the campuses.
If you select in-person instruction and we are not allowed to return to campus at the start of the school year due to the state mandate, you will receive the remote learning discount.
