Student Dismissal During SOL Testing Window
Keep in mind that students may not be in their regularly scheduled classrooms during testing. If your child has an appointment during SOL testing that cannot be rescheduled, the student must bring a parent note to the attendance desk upon arrival in the building. The student will receive a checkout pass at that time only. Thank you for your cooperation in helping us adhere to testing guidelines.
After School Learning Labs
The After School Program sponsors drop-in Learning Labs in core subjects each week. Since there will be no FCPS sponsored summer school program for Middle School students, please encourage your child to stay after school for assistance from SCMS teachers.
No More Bus Passes
Due to safety and security concerns we are no longer able to accommodate students with bus passes to ride other buses. If there is an emergency situation that requires a student to ride a different bus, we require notes from both sets of parents. All notes must be received at least twenty-four hours in advance and must be approved by an administrator.
FCPS places an automated call to parents/guardians at 9:00 a.m. each school day, based on electronic attendance information at that time. If your child is absent and you have not called the SCMS Attendance line by 8:45 a.m., you will receive an automated call/email/text. If you still have not called the attendance line by the end of the school day regarding your student’s absence or late arrival, you will receive a second notification in the evening
Students and families may use the FCPS Crisis Phone Line (703-527-4077) or Crisis Text Line (Text NEEDHELP to 85511) for after-hours assistance with mental health issues. The lines are safe, confidential and manned 24/7.
