Underclassmen Laptop Return

Students in grades 9-11 should turn in their laptops to their 7th Period teacher on Thursday, June 9th.

Students enrolled in summer school may keep their laptop for the summer and we will exchange it out upon their return next school year.

Tutor.com - Summer Access

Students can access Tutor.com over the summer months by logging into Schoology through a course.  However, after mid-June, when a student clicks on courses, the courses from the 2021-22 SY will no longer show up since they will be archived in transition to the new school year.  Therefore, students must follow the instructions below to access Tutor.com from an archived course during the summer months.

 

If a student needs help understanding the process of viewing archived courses, visit this Schoology support page for detailed directions and an animated gif that will help visually.

Free and Reduced-Price Meal Applications/Summer Meals

Families must submit an application and be approved to be eligible for free and reduced price meals for SY 22-23. For the past two years, the federal government has provided no-cost meals to all public school students without the need to complete the annual Free and Reduced-Price Meal application. However, the extension of the no-cost meals benefit to all students is expected to expire at the end of this school year.

I encourage you to submit the Free and Reduced-Price Meal application prior to the first day of the 22-23 school year. The online application will be available later this summer. Watch your email and our website for more information. Learn more about the Free and Reduced-Price Meal program online.

No-cost summer meals will be served at all FCPS summer school locations this year. Please visit the FCPS website for updated information during the summer.

From the Tech and Testing Teams Laptop Reminders for Testing

Parents or Guardians,

Your child is possibly taking an SOL Test in the next few days. Please help your child remember the following:

  1. Please bring your laptop to school for testing!
  2. Please bring your charger!
  3. Please restart your laptop when you arrive at school😊.

We do not have a loaner pool of laptops and want every child to have success!

Thanks!

Spring Health & Safety Update

FCPS has seen a recent increase in COVID-19 cases and outbreaks and we understand families and staff have concerns and questions. Our commitment is to provide students with the education and support to help them succeed while maintaining a safe environment for in-person learning. 

Our layered prevention strategies have served us well throughout this school year, and are fully supported by the U.S. Department of Education and Northern Virginia Health Departments. 

Vaccinations are available for school-age children five and up and are proven to reduce the severity of illness. Everyone is encouraged to get vaccinated or boosted.

Currently, masks are optional for all students, staff, and visitors. We encourage families and staff to consider wearing a mask when reports of COVID cases are high or if they or a family member is at high risk. CDC advises individuals to wear a mask when there is a lot of COVID in your community. See a full list of masking recommendations on the CDC website.

If Fairfax County transitions to high community level, FCPS will require all students, staff, and visitors to wear a face covering when indoors (except while actively eating/drinking) on school property (to include the buildings, school buses and other school provided vehicles). 

In alignment with the Code of Virginia, the parent/legal guardian of any child enrolled in

an FCPS school may elect for such child to not wear a face covering while on school

property (to include FCPS buildings). No reason or documentation will be necessary to elect for your child to not wear a mask.

One of the most important things we can all do is check for mild, cold-like symptoms each day, such as fever, runny nose, cough, or shortness of breath. Parents and guardians are advised to keep their students home if sick and get them tested to stop further spread from occurring. Employees are also advised to stay home and get tested when feeling sick.

The most up to date information is available on the Health and Safety Guidance Document webpage. If you have questions or concerns unique to your child’s situation, please contact your school. 

Thank you for your continued partnership in keeping our schools safe and healthy so all our students have the opportunity for engaging in-person learning.

First Day of Ramadan April 3rd

This year, the first full day of Ramadan was April 3rd. Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year for Muslims, who believe it was during this month that God revealed the first verses of the Quran, Islam's sacred text, to Mohammed, on a night known as "The Night of Power." During the entire month of Ramadan, Muslims fast every day from dawn to sunset. It is meant to be a time of spiritual discipline - of deep contemplation of one's relationship with God, extra prayer, increased charity and generosity, and intense study of the Quran.

Ramadan Mubarak to those in our FCHS community who celebrate!

Good Friday April 15th

Good Friday, the Friday before Easter, is the day on which Christians annually observe the commemoration of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Good Friday is a day of mourning. During special Good Friday services Christians meditate on Jesus's suffering and death on the cross, and what this means for their faith. FCPS has designated Good Friday as a religious and cultural observance day designed to allow students the opportunity to miss school for observances not already designated as school holidays.

Theravada New Year April 16th

In countries where Theravada Buddhism is the most dominant religion, April is the month of celebration. It marks the end of the lunisolar calendar and the beginning of another just like January 1 for most people in the world, and is why this holiday is termed the Theravada New Year. The Theravada New Year is celebrated for three days from the first full moon in April. Theravada means “the teachings of the elders”. (This holiday occurs when school is not in session.)

Congratulations...

To the Falls Church High School website and website administrator Ms. Angel Mason. The Falls Church High School website was recognized as 'Best of the Web' for 2021!

The Best of the Web Awards annually recognizes three elementary schools, one middle school, one secondary or high school, and one special center or academy.

Members of the central office web team and one of the FCPS photographers surprised Ms. Mason at a recent faculty meeting, where she was presented with a certificate and a crystal glass trophy, in front of the entire school staff. At the monthly school curator's webchat, the Falls Church website was proudly displayed and Ms. Mason was formally recognized in front of many of her FCPS school curator colleagues.
