We work to ensure school is a place where students feel safe and can be themselves. We do not tolerate hate speech, racist speech, bias, or acts of discrimination in our school. We want all students to feel a sense of belonging. We want to see all students thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

Path to College: Wednesday, April 27, at 7pm (Zoom webinar).

PTSA Meeting: Tuesday, February 8 at 7:00 pm

COVID-19 Updates

  • Parents are reminded to check their email nightly as close contact notifications are sent to parent(s)/guardian(s) at the end of each school day.  
  • Please keep your child home while you wait on any test results. This will help decrease the number of close contacts at school significantly, especially if your child ends up testing positive.
  • New process to expedite return to school for close contacts:  Beginning today, Monday February 7, if a student is a close contact and the parent receives an email from the school, the parent will need to complete the FCPS Student Quarantine Exemption and Attestation Form found here BEFORE your student returns to school.  Please send a copy of your confirmation email to our attendance office ([email protected]). You may also print the form and bring the completed copy to the attendance office. To print the form, click here
  • Students who test positive will continue to be required to isolate for 10 days before returning to school.  The day symptoms start is day zero with return to school on day 11.

This Week In Advisory

  • Students will learn about Black History Month, the Instruction 2 Industry Career Expo Event for High School Students, and Naviance, a resource tool to explore postsecondary college and career planning options.

ATHLETICS & ACTIVITIES

The stadium track will undergo resurfacing this spring and the project will last through the summer.  This is a major project that will improve our facilities and ensure the safety of our student athletes. The construction will begin Spring Break and last through most of the summer. The timing is not ideal but is necessary due to a variety of factors. Unfortunately, our stadium field will not be usable during this time. We are working with our various partners to secure field space for practices and we are making arrangements with nearby schools to arrange field space for games during this time.

COVID Close Contacts Reminders

  • Please check your emails regularly, especially in the evenings, as we send notifications to parents that their child is a close contact in a classroom in the late afternoon each day.  Please be patient as we work through the contact tracing process as it takes a full day to gather information from classroom teachers.  Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding as we work through these cases. 

Attendance Reminders

Early Check Outs:

For planned early check outs, parents and students should follow these steps:

  1. Parents: Send your student to school with a note including the following information: student’s name, time of dismissal, reason for dismissal, whether or not they will return to school, and parent signature. 
  2. Students: Turn the note into the attendance office when they arrive at school in the morning. The attendance staff will note the early check-out and give the student a pass that will allow them to leave class at the appropriate time. Students do not need to check in with the attendance office before leaving school grounds with an issued pass.

For unplanned early check outs:

  1.  If your student is feeling ill during the school day, they should go to the clinic.  The clinic will contact you to arrange dismissal if necessary.
  2. Parents should call the main office at 703-319-2300. We will transfer you to speak with someone in attendance who can run a pass for your student to leave. Please note, this process takes longer because a pass must be brought to your student’s class.

Reporting Late Arrivals:

  1. Parents should complete the online form or leave a message on the attendance line: 703-319-2319.
  2. When the student arrives at school, they must stop by the attendance office to check in.
