CPES on Twitter
Colin Powell Elementary School now has a Twitter account, @colinpowelles (ColinPowellES_FCPS). We will use this account to promote the wonderful activities and events that take place in our school. All district wide emergency or inclement weather announcements will continue to come from FCPS.
FCPS Social Media
How does FCPS communicate?...let us count the ways. In addition to the FCPS website, Keep In Touch messages, Cable TV (Red Apple 21), FCPS - Family newsletters and more, Fairfax County Public Schools also has a few social media accounts. In the past few weeks photos from CPES events have been featured on the FCPS Facebook page, www.facebook.com/fcpsva and FCPS Twitter feed, www.twitter.com/fcpsnews. There is also a YouTube channel and Flickr photostream for our school system. Follow or like FCPS to see all the wonderful things taking place in our schools.
The updated version of Colin Powell ES Parent Handbook has been uploaded to the Parent Resources page of our website. Please take a few minutes to review.
Student Information System (SIS) Parent Accounts
This parent account will enable access to view your student’s attendance, report card grades, and additional information, establishing another form of communication between home and school.
Starting on September 8th, parents will begin to use their SIS Parent Account login ID and password to access Blackboard. Parents can continue to access FCPS 24-7 (Blackboard) at fcps.blackboard.com. There is also a link within SIS that parents can click to access FCPS 24-7 Learning and vice versa. Parents will use the same login and password for both SIS and FCPS 24-7 Learning
There will be an additional central mailing of parent account letters during the week of October 19, 2015. Letters will be sent to parents who received an activation key in the central mailings during the month of August but have not yet registered for an account. Please be on the lookout for these letters. This mailing will not include parents with current activation keys that have not yet expired.
All other parents contact the main office if you need a new registration letter.
Please use the following link to a video that provides information about the registration process and the information you will view with this account., Support Video. Once you register for your account you may want to bookmark the SIS Parent Account login page, https://sisparent.fcps.edu
Devices no longer need to be registered each school year. The Acceptable Use Policy of the Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook now includes permission for BYOD. Please see Mr. Decroo, in room 108, for assistance connecting to the wireless network.
