Student Voice

A platform for student expression

In your own voice and choice of media, tell us your unique and compelling thoughts. Selected stories will appear on the FCPS Student Voice webpage and possibly other digital or broadcast platforms.

Student Voice is currently looking for videos and other posts from students on two different topics. Please specify the topic when submitting your piece.

Stop the Spread - Open Deadline

We are working hard to return students safely to school and we need your help to "Stop the Spread." This new information campaign will remind students of the steps they can take to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19.

Steps include:

  • Wearing a mask.
  • Staying 6’ (two arm lengths) apart.
  • Washing your hands (with soap and water for 20 seconds) or using hand sanitizer.
  • Covering your coughs and sneezes.
  • Staying home if you don’t feel well.   

Sports-related steps include:

  • Bringing your own equipment.
  • Wearing a mask.
  • Washing your hands.
  • Staying home if you don't feel well.

You can choose any or all of the topics above to share a video, photos, graphics, drawings, or anything creative that helps us all to remember how important it is to follow these steps so students can return to school.
