FCPS Garden Access Update

As of Friday, May 29, FCPS school gardens are once again accessible. All visitors should practice health department safety guidelines. Although face coverings are not required outdoors, community members are encouraged to practice physical distancing (six feet apart) and to keep groups to ten people or less. For gardens that are producing food, Get2Green recommends following the hygiene recommendations outlined in the Garden to Cafeteria Safety Checklist developed by Food and Nutrition Services and the Fairfax County Health Department.

If you would like to donate produce grown in your school’s garden, check this list of food providers accepting fresh produce donations or donate through the Grow a Row program.

School Outreach

Mountain View High School

Dear Mt. View Family,

At Mt. View our goal is to provide a high-quality education for all students and to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all students.  At Mt. View the faculty and staff welcome everyone, we value diversity, and we strive for inclusiveness and compassion.  We also acknowledge that there are certainly instances in our building of students feeling marginalized. Our faculty and staff work diligently to improve on our weaknesses and continue to improve the environment for all students.  We are saddened and outraged by the instances of racism and hate that are occurring in our country.  We know these events are especially painful for our African American community members, and we stand with you.  We are proud of the richness our diversity brings to the Fairfax County community, and racism and hate have no place here.

 

Chantilly High School

Parenting and Stress during Covid-19

The Chantilly High School clinical team has developed a presentation to address potential feelings of discomfort brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic during these uncertain times.  The presentation breaks down larger ideas such as Distress Tolerance into smaller, more isolated skills, that help to alleviate the intensity of uncomfortable feelings. Participants will learn the value of utilizing self-soothing techniques and other self-help skills as a way to decrease the anxious thoughts or emotions. The presentation also offers a variety of additional resources for parents, staff, and students. All are encouraged to attend and participate in the question and answer session following the presentation.
