Final Learning Packets and Summer Practice Books

The last school year distance learning packets for PreK-8 students were mailed and posted for the week of June 8, 2020. These final packets are available on FCPS 24/7 Distance Learning Support site.

FCPS is providing two summer practice books to each K-8 student as identified by enrollment status in SY19-20.  One practice book will contain review of essential skills for mathematics (by course); the other practice book will contain review of essential skills for language arts (by grade level). Each practice book will contain five weeks of activities organized by week/day.  Parents who had opted out to receive paper learning packets this spring were  contacted directly to determine if they want to opt in to receive paper summer practice books.   

Mailed practice books will arrive at the end of June and will be posted to FCPS 24/7 Learning Distance Learning Support site by June 29, 2020. The ESOL and special education offices are also developing practice books that will be mailed to select students and posted to FCPS 24/7.

Students in grades 9-12 will access English and Mathematics Google sites to review essential concepts and skills using self-directed digital materials.

Additional summer learning opportunities can be found online on the Free Summer Learning Opportunities page.

School Outreach

Westfield High School

Dear Parents and Guardians:

I am writing to address the tragic death of George Floyd and its impact on our school.  I wanted to take time to personally process this event and consider how best to support our school and community.  As an African American male, it remains troubling to see an African American male murdered while in police custody on video.  I was equally troubled at the death of Ahamad Arbery in Georgia and the allegations Mrs. Cooper made against Mr. Cooper in Central Park.  For me, all of these incidents were troubling.  For me all of these incidents perpetuate a pattern of racist behaviors that continues to plague our country.  Despite those who may know me in our community, in the larger community I am Ahmad Arbery on a walk in my community, or Christian Cooper riding through a park, or George Floyd being detained by police. READ MORE
