  • Fay Students Support Disaster Relief Efforts

    While the beginning of the school year is a tumultuous time for all, it was especially true for the millions of people affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as the devastating earthquakes that hit Mexico in September. Fay students immediately put into action this year’s theme, “Gaining Perspective,” as they came back to school filled with ideas of the many different ways in which they could support students whose communities are working to rebuild.

    In the Lower School, that effort is being spearheaded by Lara Gleason’s homevisory group, where the students are partnering with a school in Texas that was impacted by the hurricanes. Fay students are sponsoring a penny drive in addition to collecting school supplies. Students and families who would like to participate should stay tuned for more information in terms of the specific items that are needed, but mark your calendars now as the drive will start Thursday, November 2 and run up until Thanksgiving Break, concluding on Friday, November 17.

    Students in the Upper School's Antler Club also dove right into planning for the Upper School’s disaster relief efforts, putting together a bake sale for Friday Night Lights on October 27. Members of the Antler Club, the varsity field hockey team, and Parents’ Association will all be contributing baked goods that will be sold during the games, along with hot chocolate. All profits will be donated to the American Red Cross for disaster relief.

  • Safety Drills October 26 and November 2 & 9

    Over the next few weeks, our community will conduct safety drills. Safety is always a priority in every area of the school, and just as we practice fire drills with all students, we also conduct safety drills. This training is presented to students in developmentally appropriate ways based on their age, and the drills simulate various types of emergencies that require different responses (e.g., locking down in place vs. evacuating and gathering in a safe location). The goal of these drills is to help students think through and practice responses to dangerous situations.
     
    On Thursday, October 26, students will practice locking down in place. On Thursday, November 2, students will participate in an evacuation drill. On Thursday, November 9, they will practice a drill that combines both strategies.
     
    Drills will be customized to each division to ensure they are age-appropriate. In the Primary School, under the direction of Teri Lawrence, teachers and their students will practice leaving the building through various exits as well as following lockdown procedures. Our main objective with our youngest students is to make sure they can follow directions under a variety of circumstances. In the Lower School, Lainie Schuster and the teachers will prepare the students for the drills at Morning Meeting, and students will have a chance to reflect and debrief during Wellness and homeroom/homevisory classes. In the Upper School, Sarah Remsberg will introduce the drills to students at Morning Meeting, and she will discuss what students will practice and why.
     
    Practicing these drills reflects our ongoing commitment to a safe and secure community. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your division head.
