School - Parent Communication
Family Connection is a tool which allows the school to share information with parents and students about up-coming meetings and events, local scholarship opportunities, and other college and career resources. Parents can also use this site to send email to the school counseling staff.
It is important that parents keep their email address current in their FCPS 24-7 Learning account. This is the email address that will be used to communicate through Family Connection.
