Virtual College & Career Events
Go here for all the latest postings of opportunities being offered for college and career events. More events will be added as they are offered by local, regional, and national sponsors.
In-Person At School Instruction – Form Needed
Parents/guardians who chose in-school instruction for their child will receive a health screening commitment form where you will agree to completing a daily health screening prior to sending your student to school. Forms must be received at school electronically or by hard copy before your child returns to in-school instruction. Students whose parent/guardian have not returned a signed form will be required to complete a health screening and have their temperature taken daily by school staff until the form is received.
Scholarships for College
We are starting to get news of new scholarship opportunities so we have created a section on the scholarships page in our Student Services section to help you find them. Click this announcement to go there and check out all of our scholarship resources for those Seniors who are headed to college.
January Holidays Food Distribution
FCPS will continue to provide all students access to meals between January 18-26 when there are two school holidays and one student holiday/teacher workday. See the schedule for food distribution for Monday, January 18 through Tuesday, January 26.
Stop the Spread
Your actions keep all of us healthy, and we need to keep it up, working together to help slow the spread of COVID-19. There are some simple steps you can take to protect yourself and your family. Testing, contact tracing, and staying home and away from others when sick or after contact with someone who is sick, are critical to help prevent COVID-19 from spreading further in our community.
FCPS Hiring Classroom Monitors
FCPS is seeking individuals to serve as classroom monitors. Classroom monitors provide in-person classroom assistance for students when a staff member remains virtual. Candidates who are interested in a position or would like more information can review the job description and qualifications and apply online.
Service Learning Google Site
The Service Learning Google Site for student support is now up and running. As we progress through the year, more student-focused support resources will be made available. For now, there are four x2VOL support videos to help supplement the material covered in the student x2VOL login lesson. Students are invited to check these Service Learning resources out.
Parent Technology Help Desk
To support families who are working with their children during distance learning, Fairfax County Public Schools now has a Parent Technology Help Desk. The number is 1-833-921-3277 (833-921-FCPS). It will be answered by staff 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. If the help desk is unable to solve the issue on the phone with the parent or guardian, they will enter a ticket on the parent’s behalf and the request for help will be transferred to the appropriate FCPS team.
