Each student will have the opportunity to use a school-issued laptop both at school and home and experience high quality instruction and learning that incorporates digital tools in productive ways. An incredible responsibility comes with a digital transformation. It includes teaching as well as modeling digital citizenship, so our students adopt safe, smart, and responsible online practices. It also means empowering students to make healthy, balanced choices regarding their device usage. FCPSOn reinforces these practices within the learning process and beyond. Students are expected to bring charged laptops to school each day to fully engage in the learning when the tool is being utilized; loaners will not be provided for forgotten laptops. School-issued devices will be updated and maintained by FCPS.

An annual technology support fee of $50 will be charged to high school students. This fee will help ensure students have access to the technology they need by defraying the cost to repair and replace equipment and ensuring all students have the necessary laptops for testing. This fee will be invoiced in November through MySchoolBucks. Students who have Free and Reduced status and have given consent to share their FRM status for a waiver or reduction of the technology support fee will be charged $25 for Reduced status; the fee will be waived for Free status.

Students can pick up their laptops starting on August 6.

What school supplies do I need?

We do not have a common supplies list. Each teacher will post a list of needed class supplies outside of their classroom on the day of Fall Kickoff. Students will be able to walk the building and see which supplies they need.

The lists will remain posted through the first week of school. 

How can I find out my bus route?

We do not post bus schedules on the website for safety reasons.  There will be hard copies of schedules at Fall Kickoff and there will always be one posted near Door 1.
