Make Self-Care a Priority

Supporting Your Child with Digital Citizenship

Digital Citizenship can be described as the norms of appropriate, responsible behavior (and its positive and negative impact on self and others) with regard to technology use. All FCPS students are learning to become safe, ethical, and responsible digital citizens. FCPS recognizes that schools and families both play a role in helping children develop the skills and behaviors needed to make positive contributions to the online community.

As we move to distance learning, families and caregivers will play a critical role in modeling expected behaviors, and mentoring their children as they use technology to learn with others online. Children may test limits in new online learning spaces. Some children may have difficulty with self-regulation and this is a normal part of child development. Children may need support from families caregivers and their teachers.

To help, FCPS has many resources to support family learning and conversations, which can be found on the Digital Citizenship for Families web page

Laurel Hill ES

Technology Distribution for K-2 Students Coming

FCPS is working diligently to provide an opportunity for families of students in the lower grades (K-2) who DO NOT currently have access to a laptop to check out a laptop from Laurel Hill ES.  As you may be aware, there are many details behind the scenes to make this become a reality.  

If your child is unable to access distance learning because you need a device, please watch for a communication coming soon from your child's teacher on next steps. 

As we have done in previous laptop distributions, a specific pick up time will be sent to parents via email along with forms that will be completed at the time of pick up.
