For Parents/Guardians

  • Family involvement

    Fayette County Public Schools recognizes that family involvement is essential as we partner to educate our district’s students and to prepare them for life-long learning. Schools, families, and community must all be actively involved in developing strong programs and policies that support the academic success of every student in the FCPS system. All those interested in becoming a volunteer must register annually: Start here

    Registration requirements

    All families must provide certain documentation when registering a student, including immunization records. Visit fcps.net/enrollment for complete details. 

    Student Information Sheet

    Every Crawford student must have a completed information sheet on file. These are sent home at the beginning of each school year in the 1st Day Parent Packet. The information sheet must be completed and returned immediately, as it is very important that we are able to contact you if your child is injured or ill. Please notify the office if phone numbers or addresses change throughout the year. In addition, if your address changes over the summer or doing the school year, you must submit two verifications of residence (lease, deed, or utility bill) to update your address.

    Parking

    Please do not double park in the lot. You may not use the bus lane in front of the school to pick up or drop your child. Do not park in the bus lane to come into the building. You must park in a designated space in the parking lot. You may not use the bus lane in the afternoon. Please use car loop when dropping off the morning and/or picking up at the end of the school day.

    Visitors

    All visitors must register in the office. No exceptions. Visitors must show proper photo ID and sign in every time they enter the building.

    Attendance

    Attendance at school is essential for good performance and high achievement. A written excuse, dated and signed by the parent or guardian, is required for all absences.  Excused absences include illness, death of an immediate family member, religious holidays for which prior approval is given, medical and dental appointments, and special cases approved by the principal. Children are tardy if they arrive after 9:05 a.m. and/or leave prior to 3:55 p.m. Students must obtain a tardy slip from the attendance clerk in the front office, when checking in late.

    Student pick-up

    If you are picking up your child at dismissal time, please use the designated car loop. We must have a written note if there is a change in your child’s transportation. No change in transportation will be permitted unless we have a written note from the parent/guardian. A telephone call will NOT be accepted. During the school day you must come into the office to sign your child out early. Children are only released from class when called from the office.
