Closed Campus Policy

  • At 7:45 am, the front gate will be locked and will reopen at dismissal time, 2:27 pm.
  • All visitors must check into the front office and obtain a visitor pass when visiting between the hours of 7:45 and 2:15 pm. After 2:15 pm, we will no longer accept visitors.
  • After school pickup: For the safety of your child, no adults are allowed on campus to wait at their child’s classroom door before dismissal time.
    •  Kindergarten students will continue to be escorted by their teacher until a parent/guardian arrives and will be released at the kindergarten gate.
    • All 1st grade students must exit at the front gate and may not exit the side gates unless escorted by a parent/guardian or older sibling.
    • All others may continue to pick up in the valet line while children wait in front of the school.
  • At 2:45, the front gates will be locked. If you have not picked your child up by 2:45 they will be escorted to the front office and we will follow our ‘Excessive Late Pickup’ procedure.

In conclusion, we know the new gate will take some adjusting and getting used to and we thank you all in advance for your patience, help and understanding. All of the staff at Fairbanks share the same goal for a safe and positive learning environment for each student. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact the front office.

Updated Uniform Policy

Beginning Monday, September 17th the updated Uniform Policy will be enforced.


Please see below to view the changes made to Fairbanks' Uniform Policy.


Fairbanks Elementary School

Uniform Policy


In order to promote a positive learning environment and comply with the provisions of the safe and violence-free school initiative and counteract the influence of gang presence in the community and equalize the effect of different family income levels; the School Site Council (SSC) has established the following School Uniform Policy.


Students in Grades Preschool to 6th enrolled at the Fairbanks Elementary School in the Twin Rivers Unified School District are expected to adhere to the following Dress Code:


1. Tops - Students will wear pull-over, buttoned, or plain white or blue tops (any blue color).  Plain white or blue or school t-shirts or sweatshirts are also acceptable. No logos other than the school logo will be allowed. Collared shirts are not required. No spaghetti straps, cropped shirts, tank tops or short shirts allowed.


2. Bottoms - Students will be allowed to wear navy blue pants, shorts, jumpers, and skirts provided they are knee-length and contain no logos.


3. Plain (no decorations) dark blue jeans are acceptable. Saggy, baggy pants or jeans with holes will not be tolerated. More than two sizes are too big.  No clothing is allowed to drag on the ground.


4. Belts are to be worn at proper length within belt loops.


5Athletic clothing and tattered jeans are not allowed. 


6.   Shoes – No solid red shoes are allowed. Sandals, flip flops, heels or slippers are not allowed.


The expectation of the policy is for all students to adhere to the Dress Code.  Parents /Guardians are expected to support the Uniform Policy.  If a student comes to school wearing inappropriate attire, the school staff will:

  1. Student will be sent to the office and the parent may be asked to bring a change of clothing to school for students to change into.
  2. If communication  is not successful student may be asked to wear a loaned t-shirt.
  3. Any student who continually fails to comply with the dress code will result in a written notification to parent(s). If parent or student do not abide by the dress code, further disciplinary action will be necessary.
  4. A parent meeting will occur when the dress code continues not to be followed.

The SSC will establish a sub-committee to monitor the implementation and evaluate the effectiveness of the School Uniform Policy.  The sub-committee will contain representatives from staff, parents, and student group.






Para establecer, promover y mantener un ambiente de aprendizaje apropiado, cumplir con las medidas de seguridad y con la iniciativa de la escuela de no violencia: para contrarrestar la influencia de gangas en la comunidad y equilibrar las diferencias en los niveles económicos de las familias, el Consejo Escolar (SSC) ha establecido el siguiente código/normas en relación al vestuario.   



Los estudiantes de preescolar hasta 6o grado, inscritos en la Escuela Primaria Fairbanks, en el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Twin Rivers, deberán ajustarse al siguiente código/normas de vestir:


  1. Camisas/blusas Los estudiantes usarán camisa/blusa blanca, o azul (cualquier color azul)  con abotonadura y sin dibujos. No se permite ningún tipo de logotipo que no sea el de la escuela. También son aceptadas camisetas de sudadera blanca o azul. Las camisas/blusas demasiado cortas, sin mangas o faldas cortas no están permitidas.     


  1. Pantalones Se les permitirá a los estudiantes usar pantalones largos, shorts (pantalones cortos) everoles y faldas de color azul,  siempre y cuando el largo de estas prendas sea a la altura de la rodilla y no incluyan logotipos.


  1. Los cinturones serán usados a la altura apropiada de la cintura y dentro de las presillas.


  1. Pantalones de mezclilla azul obscuro también son aceptados. Pantalones sueltos, muy holgados o anchos, no son  permitidos. Las bastillas o dobladillos de los pantalones no deberán rozar el suelo.


  1. Ropa deportiva o pantalones deshilachados, rotos  no serán aceptados. 


  1. Zapatos – Los zapatos de color rojo sólido, sandalias, chanclas o tacones no están permitidos


La expectativa es que todos los estudiantes se ajusten a  este código de vestir. Esperamos que los padres/guardianes apoyen estas normas.  Si un estudiante llega a la escuela vistiendo un atuendo no apropiado, el personal de la escuela deberá:

  1. El estudiante será enviado a la oficina y se llamará por teléfono a los padres para que traigan un cambio de ropa.
  2. Si la llamada no tiene éxito el estudiante deberá usar una camiseta prestada.
  3. Si el estudiante continúa sin cumplir con el código de vestuario de la escuela, los padres serán notificados por escrito. Si los padres o los estudiantes no siguen las normas del código de vestuario, esto ocasionará otras acciones disciplinarias.
  4. Si el estudiante continúa sin cumplir con el código de vestuario habrá una reunión con los padres.
