Around 656 is a monthly online newsletter that shares the great work being done by the students and staff of Faribault Public Schools. It features information and photos about volunteer work and projects being done by our student clubs and organizations, unique programs and events, awards and recognitions, profiles on our staff and alumni, and much, much more.

Faribault Public Schools recognizes the responsibility of the news media to provide accurate and timely information to the community concerning issues and events that occur in our schools. While we are committed to cooperating with the news media request for access to our schools and students, we are also obligated to protect the privacy of students and employees. To help facilitate media requests, we ask media to contact Community Relations Coordinator Matt Steichen at (507) 333-6152 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faribault Public Schools ensures the protection of student and employee privacy and will not release any information that may reveal a student’s identity; will respect the privacy of its teachers and employees and will not release any personal or personnel-related information unless required by law; will not comment on any case that is before the courts; and will refer all questions related to police investigations to proper authority.
School, programs and activities may be closed and/or canceled by the superintendent in the event of extreme weather conditions. In the event of a school closure, delayed start, or early dismissal, all PreK-12 families will receive a phone call, email and message in your Campus Parent Portal. This information will also be available on our district-wide emergency line at 507-333-6057.
In addition, school closings will be posted on the district website at faribault.k12.mn.us and on the district Facebook page at @faribaultpublic. An official announcement will also be made on radio stations KDHL/Power96, KOWZ and KYMN, and on TV stations WCCO (Channel 4), KSTP (Channel 5), KMSP (Channel 9), KARE (Channel 11) and KEYC (Mankato Channel 12).
