Red Ribbon Week - October 27-31
Friday's Red Ribbon theme is "Paws-itively Drug Free" We are encouraging all students to wear their Providence shirts!
On October 17 student leaders worked with our student government and administration to review our current Providence Constitution. Student representatives decided if they needed to amend or revise the document. Our student leaders voted to ratify the existing Constitution as is, representing democracy in action. Take a look!

The first FCPS scheduled Early Release for students will be held on October 31. The students will be dismissed at 12:50pm.

Fairfax County Public Schools is committed to assisting students and staff in creating a 21st century learning environment. In efforts to support this progress, students and staff will now be able to access our wireless network with their personal devices (laptops, netbooks, tablets, smart phones, etc.) during the school day. With classroom teacher approval, students may register and use their own devices to access the Internet and collaborate with other students. By allowing students to use their own technology at school, we are hoping to increase the access all students have to the technology they need to succeed. FCPS requires that students register their device(s) each school year.
Beginning with the 2014-15 school year, there is no more manual device registration. BYOD throughout Fairfax County Public Schools is now an automated process and no stickers will be issued. The Acceptable Use Policy in the Student Rights and Responsibilities now includes permission for BYOD, eliminating the need to send in a signed BYOD permission slip. However, when your student brings his/her device to school, he/she will need to meet with a member of the school's tech team for assistance accessing the school's wireless network. For more information click HERE.
Students that registered their own devices during the 2013-14 school year, will have to re-register those device in the Fall for the 2014-15 school year!
