Senior Graduation Fees to Be Reimbursed

Dear FAIR School Senior Families:

I am writing to inform you about a procedural change in our school that has resulted in a small reimbursement coming back to your family.

The FAIR School has traditionally assessed a small fee of $35.00 to be used for graduation related expenses. Minneapolis Public Schools learned recently that charging such a graduation fee is prohibited by law. Minneapolis Public Schools will be reimbursing this fee to families who have already paid it.

If your Senior has already paid, they will be reimbursed $35 fee during the week of June  4, 2018, prior to graduation.  We are working on the details of when we will have the funds (cash) back at FAIR to be paid out. 

We are sorry if this has caused any confusion for your family and look forward to a successful graduation ceremony on June 9, 2017 at 7:00pm at the Cowles Center for Performing Arts.

Sincerely,

Mary Pat Cumming

Principal, The FAIR School
