  • Calling All Kindergarteners!

    Do you have a child who will turn 5 before September 30, 2015? If so, please be sure to fill out the FCPS Survey of Preschool Children, which was sent home in last week’s Wednesday folder, and return it to school as soon as possible. If you don’t have a rising kindergartener yourself, please share the form with neighbors or friends who do. This form is important to us, as it helps us plan our kindergarten staff and classrooms for the coming year. We also use it to create a mailing list of rising kindergarten families so that we can keep them informed about upcoming events like Kindergarten registration in the spring.

    Registration for Kindergarten Only begins on Monday, March 9th. Please visit our Kindergarten Registration page for further information and to schedule your registration appointment.

    If you prefer to attend an open registration (no appointment necessary), please mark your calendar for Friday, April 17th. The school office will be open all day to register new students for kindergarten only that day. More information is available on the Kindergarten Registration page.

    Registration for new students in grades other than kindergarten will begin April 1st. Please check back then for more information.

  • New BYOD Registration Process

    FCPS is currently implementing a new self-registration process that auto-directs devices to a secure, pre-determined network during the registration process. Once connected, students will have access to FCPS resources on their personal devices.  Students requiring assistance registering their device should see their school-technology support team.
       

    Student participation in BYOD is governed by the Student Rights and Responsibilities (SR&R) document. Parents and students are required to read and accept the Acceptable Use Policy for Student Network Access within the SR&R document. BYOD permission is now acknowledged by signing the parent and/or guardian signature sheet within Student Rights and Responsibilities.
       
    More information about the FCPS BYOD program can be found at the following location http://www.fcps.edu/it/byod/index.shtml
