Student-Parent Survey for Federal Impact Aid

Beginning on October 13, FCPS will be asking all families to fill out a Student-Parent Survey for Federal Impact Aid.

This survey will be sent home with each student tomorrow, October 13th. It is important for you to fill out and return the form for every FCPS student in your household.   

Returning this form is important because information from this survey results in an additional $3 million in grants each year from the U.S. Department of Education. These funds are used to support all Fairfax County public schools and centers.

For each school-aged child in your household, please complete, sign, date, and return the survey to your child's teacher. If sections 1 and 2 of the survey do not apply to you, just check the boxes in Section 3. All forms must be signed, dated, and returned as soon as possible. All results are confidential

Early Student Pick-ups

On occasion you may need to pull your student from school early.  It helps our staff locate your child in a timely manner and have them ready sooner if we have  advance notice.  We understand that this is not always possible, but if it is please email  Fairhill ES Attendance  before noon so that we can communicate with the teacher earlier in the day.  This will let us know the precise location of your student when you arrive.  Also, please be aware that if you pick your student up after 3:30 p.m. you will not be able to leave before dismissal unless you park on Chichester Lane.  Our Kiss and Ride lane is full at that time, blocking the parking lot, and the buses are blocking the front driveway at that time.  Thank you for helping us with a smooth early pick up of your student.  

Picture Retake Day

Save the date for Fall Picture Retakes! A photographer from Strawbridge Studios will be at Fairhill on 10/28/2021 to photograph any fall retakes.  If your student did not have their picture taken or you would like a retake of your child's existing photo please sign up by clicking here.  Also, please see this form you can use.

Veteran's Day Flipgrid

Each year, Fairhill honors veterans by showing a Veterans Day slide deck that showcases staff members’ families on the morning of Veterans Day. New this year, we are inviting military connected Fairhill students to interview military connected family members for a Q&A session via Flipgrid. Students will be given a list of guiding questions and are welcome to be creative and encouraged to have fun when creating the Flipgrid.  The FlipGrid will then be shared with Fairhill classroom teachers to honor Veterans Day. Flipgrid is a familiar video sharing app that students can easily access and navigate and require only a handful of steps to create and submit a video.

If you are interested in participating in this optional activity with your child, or have a family member who would be interested in participating with a Fairhill student

  1. Visit: https://flipgrid.com/2c3eb103 - under “Have a guest password?” enter FESinterviews
  2. Recordings can be done from a laptop or through the app. Search for Flipgrid in the app store – video recordings have a 10 minute limit.

    Included are some Q&A guiding questions:

    1. What branch of the military were/are you in? 
    2. What is your rank, or what was your rank upon discharge?
    3. How many years have you served/did you serve?
    4. What made you want to join the military?
    5. What kinds of jobs have you done while serving in the military?
    6. What kinds of skills did you/do you learn and use in the military that you use in other parts of your life?
    7. Where have you been posted?
    8. Which is/was your favorite post and why?
    9. What would you say to someone who wants to join the military? Any tips for success for Fairhill students who are interested in a military career

    Flipgrid recordings are due by November 8th.

    Thank you in advance for your participation in Fairhill’s Veterans Day, 2021!

Dear Fairhill Family-

We hope that you all had a wonderful long weekend and had time to enjoy family, enjoy the beautiful fall weather, and take a moment to recognize Indigenous Peoples’ Day. We are looking forward to a wonderful week ahead at Fairhill. 

Yesterday many of our teachers started parent teachers conferences for the year. We believe that these conferences are a vital tool to deepening our parent and teacher relationships and the schools connection to the community. Please be on the lookout for an email or sign up from your child’s teacher about a conference in the next few weeks. We hope to have 100% participation in parent teacher conferences. 

Finally, a gentle reminder that this Thursday is our Town Hall / PTA Meeting. The Town Hall will be led by our Mental Health team and will start at 5:30 PM followed directly by our PTA Meeting on the same link at 6:30 PM. A ZOOM link will be sent on Thursday to families for access. We hope to see you there. 

All our best,

Dear Fairhill Family-

Our hearts are bursting with gratitude for our community this week. Our PTA Fun Run on Friday was just perfect. Students spent an hour outside with friends, laughing, exercising, making memories and enjoying a perfect fall day. These types of traditions are what make our students' experiences at Fairhill so special and while they may look seamless from the outside, they are a big logistical lift for our teachers, PTA volunteers and community members and for that, we say THANK YOU. 

In addition to the actual Fun Run, we are extremely grateful for the money that our community members - some with students at Fairhill, and some just great supporters of the school -  have raised to help our students. The over $44,000 will be used in so many positive ways for students. PTA will keep you updated on the spending with its annual budget but we know for sure it will help provide better technology for students and teachers, access to field trips, student and staff morale boosters and opportunities for the community to come together and get to know each other better. Thank you again for your generosity and support of our wonderful school. 

Finally, be sure to check out the important dates above. Tomorrow is Bike/Walk to School Day, Friday an Overview of AAP, and next week our Mental Health Town Hall and PTA meeting. We hope you can participate in it all. 

With Deep Appreciation, 

Ted & Courtney

WALK/BIKE TO SCHOOL DAY IS TOMORROW!

 

Save the date of October 6th for our annual Walk/Bike to School Day!

Walking and biking increase physical activity, they teach people safe             pedestrian and biking skills, they are better for the environment (one less car) and they are a great way to spend time outdoors with family friends!

All students here at Fairhill are encouraged to participate. Every student who walks or bikes to school on October 6th will receive a reward!  Can't walk or bike to school?  No worries - all bus riders and kiss and ride students can earn their reward by walking 8 laps at recess on that day!  Look for Mr. Peevy and Ms. Mendick in front of the school on October 6th.  They will be cheering you on!  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Mr. Peevy at the following email address, pepeevy@fcps.edu.

 

Advanced Academic Program Information Sessions

Please join us for a Parent Information Session on Friday, October 8th from 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. (via Zoom) for an overview of FCPS Advanced Academic Programs and AAP services provided here at Fairhill. All parents are welcome to join to learn more about AAP programs and continuum of services.  We hope to see you then!

Additionally, Mrs. Campbell will be hosting a Parent Information Session on on Friday, October 29th @ 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. (via Zoom) to share information about the screening and identification processes for full-time level IV services for identified students. This session is intended for families of students in grades 2-6. 

Links will be sent out prior to each session. 

Impact Aid

Each year FCPS is eligible to apply for federal Impact Aid grant funds.  On October 13th you will receive a survey form for each of your children enrolled in FCPS.  Please take a minute to fill out the form for each student in your household and return to your child's teacher the following day.  Fairhill needs 100% participation in this crucial survey for funds.  Thank you for cooperating.  Look for the survey in your child's back pack on October 13th!

Please click here for more information or contact Anne Kane, ackane@fcps.edu.

Library News

The Library has been bustling with browsing and check-outs since the first day of school! After checking out nearly 2,000 books in August, our Fairhill Tigers have checked out over 4,500 in September! It is clear that Fairhill is a READING school! We’d love your help in reminding our Tigers about returning library books in a timely manner. The first round of overdue notices go home today, so feel free to use these as guides to have those talks. Please email Mrs. Howard with any questions: lghoward@fcps.edu Thank you, and happy reading!

Keep your child home from school with any symptoms that are COVID-like. 

The most important way you can help as a parent is to keep your child(ren) home if they present with any illness or symptoms that are associated with COVID: runny nose, coughing, headache, sore throat, fatigue, diarrhea, etc. If you keep your child home, and they are feeling better the next day, then they do not need documentation from a medical provider to return. However, if your child comes to school and presents with symptoms, they will be placed in the Care Room and will be sent home. Your child must then be seen by a medical provider in order to return to school and you will be given a form to get completed by the doctor. 

Parents, caregivers or guardians, are strongly encouraged to monitor their children for symptoms of infectious illness every day through a home-based symptom screening and students who are sick should not attend in-person instruction. Please consider the questions in the HealthScreeningQuestionnaire for 2021-2022.pdf each morning before sending your child to school. If you answer “YES” to any of the questions, please keep your child home.

Fairhill Fun Run Success

Dear Fairhill Families,

We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to our Fairhill families and friends.  This year's Fun Run was an amazing success on many levels.  Not only did we exceed our fundraising goal, but the kids sure did have a great time running and skipping loops on the field (thank you to Mr. Peevy and to our super DJ, Mrs. Korb!).  

The best part of this event was seeing our Fairhill community come back together again.  We are so fortunate to have such a generous, enthusiastic and supportive community.  

 

In Gratitude,

As you plan your calendars going forward, please make sure to save the date for our next Fairhill Town Hall/PTA meeting that will happen on Thursday, October 14th at 5:30 p.m.  Our counselors will lead the Town Hall and have relevant information about the mental health of our students and some strategies at home to promote positive mental health. Directly after the Town Hall we invite you to stay on the same link for our PTA meeting. Last month we had over 50 participants for the Town Hall and we hope to hit 60 families for this next one! Please help us spread the word and invite families to take advantage of this great opportunity and connection to Fairhill. 

As always, we are here in support and collaboration to ensure your child has the best possible school experience. Please always feel free to reach out.

All our best,

Ted & Courtney 

WALK/BIKE TO SCHOOL DAY IS COMING TO FAIRHILL!

 

Save the date of October 6th for our annual Walk/Bike to School Day!

Walking and biking increase physical activity, they teach people safe             pedestrian and biking skills, they are better for the environment (one less car) and they are a great way to spend time outdoors with family friends!

All students here at Fairhill are encouraged to participate. Every student who walks or bikes to school on October 6th will receive a reward!  Can't walk or bike to school?  No worries - all bus riders and kiss and ride students can earn their reward by walking 8 laps at recess on that day!  Look for Mr. Peevy and Ms. Mendick in front of the school on October 6th.  They will be cheering you on!  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Mr. Peevy at the following email address, pepeevy@fcps.edu.

 

Advanced Academic Program Information Sessions

Please join us for a Parent Information Session on Friday, October 8th from 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. (via Zoom) for an overview of FCPS Advanced Academic Programs and AAP services provided here at Fairhill. All parents are welcome to join to learn more about AAP programs and continuum of services.  We hope to see you then!

Additionally, Mrs. Campbell will be hosting a Parent Information Session on on Friday, October 29th @ 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. (via Zoom) to share information about the screening and identification processes for full-time level IV services for identified students. This session is intended for families of students in grades 2-6. 

Links will be sent out prior to each session. 

Keep your child home from school with any symptoms that are COVID-like. 

The most important way you can help as a parent is to keep your child(ren) home if they present with any illness or symptoms that are associated with COVID: runny nose, coughing, headache, sore throat, fatigue, diarrhea, etc. If you keep your child home, and they are feeling better the next day, then they do not need documentation from a medical provider to return. However, if your child comes to school and presents with symptoms, they will be placed in the Care Room and will be sent home. Your child must then be seen by a medical provider in order to return to school and you will be given a form to get completed by the doctor. 

Parents, caregivers or guardians, are strongly encouraged to monitor their children for symptoms of infectious illness every day through a home-based symptom screening and students who are sick should not attend in-person instruction. Please consider the questions in the HealthScreeningQuestionnaire for 2021-2022.pdf each morning before sending your child to school. If you answer “YES” to any of the questions, please keep your child home. 

Town Hall

Join us for our next virtual Town Hall on October 14th from 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.  We will discuss student mental health with our Mental Health Team. We will send a link to join closer to the date.

Dear Fairhill Families-

We are having a wonderful time here at Fairhill now that we are fully in the swing of things. While we are always teaching and reteaching routines and procedures, at this point in the year, we are really deep into learning and that feeling is wonderful. 

This past week our COVID focus has been on increasing ways to social distance in the classroom. With the recent cases and pauses since the start of the school year in FCPS, our leadership team has asked us, in an abundance of caution, to revisit classroom set up where possible. Many of our teachers were able to break apart close clusters of desks or rethink classroom organization to maximize space and ensure all students are socially distanced to the greatest extent possible according to the CDC K-12 recommendation.  While this does promote safety and reduces potential close contacts and pauses, there are of course some instructional implications such as altered small group work, revised carpet time and finding new ways for students to collaborate with each other while distancing. Please be patient with us as we learn and relearn our ever-changing new normal to promote safety and learning. 

In other news, FCPS and Fairhill are excited to celebrate the first week of Hispanic Heritage Month this week! Hispanic Heritage Month is September 15th through October 15th and gives us an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate our Hispanic heritage and community. Many teachers will be teaching about this in upcoming lessons and if you are interested in supporting the conversation at home, we encourage you to consider checking a book out from THIS book list. One of our favorites is Kitchen Dance!

Stay well and have a wonderful week,

Ted & Courtney

  • Send in small, tangible items to be distributed to the class (pencils, erasers, stickers, etc.)  

Unfortunately, sharing birthday treats with classmates/friends this year will  need to be done outside of the school building. Thank you for your understanding and support of our new Birthday Treat School Policy as we work towards providing safe and healthy options at all celebrations and events.

Fairhill Fitness Week and Fun Run!

We are excited to announce that we are preparing to launch the Fairhill Fitness Week and Fun Run!  For those of you who were around in 2018, you may remember that the fun run was a very fun and successful event.  We plan to follow the same format again this year.  

When will this occur?

Fairhill Fitness Week: Monday September 27 – October 1

The Fairhill Fun Run will be held during specials on Friday, October 1 outside on the field.

Why are we holding the fitness week and fun run? 

The goal of this week is to make it a fun week for our children that is focused on fitness and to be our largest fundraiser of the year.  To do this, we brought the fun run in-house, meaning no outside vendor in the school during the week disrupting classroom time. In turn, the PTA keeps approximately 90% of the profit versus 50% using an outside vendor, putting more funds directly back into our school to benefit our children!

Dear Fairhill Families-

We are off to another great week here at Fairhill! Thank you to all of you who were able to come to our Town Hall and PTA meeting last Thursday. We had over 50 participants!!! Our next Town Hall will be on October 14th with a focus on student mental health. Please continue to share the word with other Fairhill Families to join. 

We have two COVID updates to share as reminders. First, FCPS has decided that all COVID cases will be reported on Friday evening for the week. If you are interested in knowing the day by day count at any specific school, the FCPS dashboard will still be updated daily. Second, our mitigation strategies work and continue to get better each and every day. FCPS just released data that less than 0.2% of students and staff in the division are currently quarantined due to COVID or COVID exposure. We made great strides in the cafeteria last week and appreciate your flexibility and continued support as we think and rethink all of our procedures to keep safety at the forefront of our work. 

Finally, don’t forget our PTA event and fundraiser, Fairhill Fitness Week & Fun Run, is happening the last week of this month. The Fun Run event will take place during specials on Friday October 1st. Please consider supporting this fundraiser if you are able. Click here for more information on making a donation or see your teachers newsletters about class wide and school wide incentives. 

As always, we are here to support and ensure that your student(s) are having the best year possible learning and growing so please feel free to reach out if we can be of help in any way. 

All our best,

Forms, Forms, Forms!

As we return to school each fall, there are certain mandatory forms that need to be filled out.  Please click on the following links to fill out the necessary documentation we require each year for every student.  You can either print the copies and send them in with your student, or you can email them to ackane@fcps.edu

1. Digital Resources at Fairhill-Parent Consent Form (read below)

At Fairhill Elementary, our teachers will use a variety of digital resources to support student learning and promote communication and collaboration with students and families.

Additionally, you can find more information about approved digital resources in FCPS here: https://www.fcps.edu/resources/technology/digital-resources.

 

Included on this page is also a link to a form where the enrolling parent or guardian will need to indicate whether or not their student is allowed to use the list of digital resources this year. This page also provides more information about how FCPS carefully reviews digital resources for approval and why we must request your consent before using certain tools. We encourage you to complete the parental consent for digital resources form as soon as possible, as your child will not be able to use the digital resources until we have received your permission. Please reach out to Stephen Giese, School Based Technology Specialist, if you have questions or concerns about the digital resources we’ve chosen to use this year.

A paper copy of the form can be requested and submitted in the main office at Fairhill.

News from FCPS COVID-19 Case Notification Update

Many families are finding it stressful and overwhelming to receive a new COVID notification email every time there is a positive case in their child’s school. We have updated our process to provide families some relief.

Administrators' Avenue

Dear Fairhill Families-

Thank you to those of you who were able to come to our PTA event, Popsicles in the Park, on Thursday! We had a great turn out and it was wonderful to see so many Fairhill Families. We hope you all enjoyed the long weekend and found plenty of time to relax and reconnect with each other. 

While this weekend’s notification of our first COVID case this year is without a doubt disappointing, please know that we are doing everything that we can to reduce as much risk as possible and our teachers and staff are taking our mitigation strategies extremely seriously. Our students have been incredible about wearing masks and proper hand and respiratory hygiene. Our students have needed very few reminders from our teachers and the mitigation strategies have become habits at this point.  We know that health is everyone's main concern right now, it is ours too, and by working together we can do everything in our control to keep our students safe. 

Similar to last year, in order to strengthen our connection and communication between our school and community, we will be having monthly Town Halls the hour directly prior to PTA meetings. These informal meetings will be an opportunity to connect on relevant and timely topics such as beginning of school, reading and math instruction, social emotional learning and other topics we hope you find relevant. There will always be time for a Q&A at the end to ask any questions you may have. Our first Town Hall will be this Thursday, September 9th from 5:30-6:30 p.m. where we will talk about our first few weeks of school, COVID case responses, and we will have plenty of time for Q & A to answer any questions you may have. If you know in advance of a question you may have, please feel free to submit it HERE so we can be prepared to answer as many questions as possible. We will be meeting digitally for the first Town Hall using ZOOM. Directly after the Town Hall we will have our PTA meeting using the same link. We hope you can join for both.

A link to access the meetings will be sent via e-Notify.

Have a wonderful week,

Ted Cooper & Courtney Korb

Keep your child home from school with any symptoms that are COVID-like. 

The most important way you can help as a parent is to keep your child(ren) home if they present with any illness or symptoms that are associated with COVID: runny nose, coughing, headache, sore throat, fatigue, diarrhea, etc. If you keep your child home, and they are feeling better the next day, then they do not need documentation from a medical provider to return. However, if your child comes to school and presents with symptoms, they will be placed in the Care Room and will be sent home. Your child must then be seen by a medical provider in order to return to school and you will be given a form to get completed by the doctor. 

Parents, caregivers or guardians, are strongly encouraged to monitor their children for symptoms of infectious illness every day through a home-based symptom screening and students who are sick should not attend in-person instruction. Please consider the questions in the HealthScreeningQuestionnaire for 2021-2022.pdf each morning before sending your child to school. If you answer “YES” to any of the questions, please keep your child home. 

Picture day is coming to Fairhill!

Save the date!  September 23 will be Fairhill Fall Picture Day.  Click here for the available packages and click here for online ordering. The code for Fairhill is FM370406.  

Forms, Forms, Forms!

As we return to school each fall, there are certain mandatory forms that need to be filled out.  Please click on the following links to fill out the necessary documentation we require each year for every student.  You can either print the copies and send them in with your student, or you can email them to ackane@fcps.edu

1. Digital Resources at Fairhill-Parent Consent Form (read below)

At Fairhill Elementary, our teachers will use a variety of digital resources to support student learning and promote communication and collaboration with students and families. Some of the digital resources your child may use this year will require your consent before they can be used. You can find our school’s list of the resources that require parental consent on our website. Additionally, you can find more information about approved digital resources in FCPS here: https://www.fcps.edu/resources/technology/digital-resources.

 

Included on this page is also a link to a form where the enrolling parent or guardian will need to indicate whether or not their student is allowed to use the list of digital resources this year. This page also provides more information about how FCPS carefully reviews digital resources for approval and why we must request your consent before using certain tools. We encourage you to complete the parental consent for digital resources form as soon as possible, as your child will not be able to use the digital resources until we have received your permission. Please reach out to Stephen Giese, School Based Technology Specialist, if you have questions or concerns about the digital resources we’ve chosen to use this year.

A paper copy of the form can be requested and submitted in the main office at Fairhill.  

2.  Emergency Care Form or here for the online link to       WeCare@school.

3.  Health Information Form or here for the online submission link through              WeCare@school.

4.   Student Rights & Responsibilities Form

5.   Opt-Out Forms 

 

ParentVUE

The SIS (Student Information System) Parent Account is an online tool that parents can use to access information about their child’s attendance, class schedule and performance, discipline incidents, health information, and more. If you registered in the past, your account is still active. If you have not, please create an account using this link. Please contact the Main Office if you have any questions or need support. 

 Information parents will be able to access includes:

  • Progress Reports
  • Attendance
  • Health information
  • Significant Discipline incidents
  • Name of Classroom Teacher
  • Teachers’ email addresses
  • FCPS calendar
  • Student’s emergency contact information
  • Transportation information including bus stops and times
Transportation and Transportation Changes

As we begin the school, please assist us by using consistent transportation methods with your students.  This will assure smooth dismissals and less mishaps which, in turn, leads to less worry.  Thank you for your cooperation with this.  If your student takes the bus, please download the Here Comes the BUS app!  This lets you know where your student's bus is at all times.  You will need a ParentVUE account in order to sign up, as well as our school code which is 28982.  On a rare occasion you may need to change your student's transportation mode for a day.  If that is the case, you can call the Main Office or click on the Change of Transportation Form found here or on Fairhill's website.  Any Transportation Changes made after 12:00 pm may not be guaranteed.  

All students and staff are required to wear masks on all buses. The CDC federal order requiring masks be worn on public transportation remains in effect and applies to buses operated by Virginia public schools.

You can find your students' bus stops and times on your ParentVUE page.  

Schoology  

As many of you are already aware, FCPS has switched from Blackboard to another learning platform. 

Schoology is a learning space that enhances face-to-face and distance learning through communication, collaboration, and personalized learning.

Teachers use Schoology to post their classroom materials online; to provide a safe forum for students to discuss their ideas and collaborate on projects; and to assign and collect homework electronically. It helps students stay organized and it keeps the class connected.  As a parent you can set up a Schoology Parent Account to access your child’s classes, your child’s upcoming assignments, as well as school, class, and group announcements.

Please click here for more information, available in many languages. 

You will use your ParentVUE login name and password to access Schoology. 

New Birthday Treat Policy

Beginning this school year our birthday treat celebration policy will be new. Birthday celebrations are important!  We would  like to recognize the birthday celebrant on their special day at school! If you would like to celebrate your child’s birthday at school, here are ways we can celebrate:

  • Bring in a favorite book to share/read
  • Your child gets to pick the read aloud story for the day
  • Donate a book to the school library or classroom in honor of your child’s birthday
  • Donate a board game to your child’s class to be used for indoor recess
  • Send in small, tangible items to be distributed to the class (pencils, erasers, stickers, etc.)  

Unfortunately, sharing birthday treats with classmates/friends this year will  need to be done outside of the school building. Thank you for your understanding and support of our new Birthday Treat School Policy as we work towards providing safe and healthy options at all celebrations and events.

Is your 5th or 6th grade student interested in signing up for Chorus?  

Students may fill out the google form found here or turn in the paper form they received from Mr. Ryan.  Please contact Mr. Ryan at mpryan@fcps.edu if you have any questions.

Lockdown Drill

Keeping students and staff safe is a priority for all of us. We have a crisis management and emergency preparedness plan for our school that is reviewed and updated regularly. Our plan includes procedures on how to respond to incidents such as fires and tornadoes. Students and staff regularly practice these drills every school year. We also practice lockdown drills.

A new Virginia Law (22.1-137.2) requires schools to notify parents at least 24 hours before a school practices a lockdown drill. However, we are not required to share the exact date and time of the drill. We are required to practice lockdown drills two times a year. FCPS lockdown drills do not include any type of active shooter scenario training, they are instruction and classroom based.

We will conduct a lockdown drill at our school soon. Our pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students are exempt from mandatory participation in lockdown drills during the first 60 days of the school year. They will participate in our second and final drill later this school year.

Additional information on our lockdown drill program to include parent tips and FAQs can be found on the Emergency Planning and Crisis Response web page. After reviewing this content, you should discuss the value of these safety drills with your child.

Keeping our school safe and secure for all students and staff involves the participation of the entire school community, and we thank you for your help to keep our school safe.

News from FCPS Parent/Guardian Access to Family Life Education Lessons

The Code of Virginia requires FCPS to make all Family Life Education (FLE) lessons (grades K-12 and modified) available for parent/guardian review. To meet this requirement, parents/guardians will be able to preview these FLE resources in Schoology:

  • lessons,
  • slide presentations, and
  • media for which FCPS has purchased streaming rights.

Some media titles may only be available for parents to view at the school.

Student Rights and Responsibilities (SR&R) Resources

Starting in the 2021-22 school year, parents/guardians with a ParentVUE account can download and digitally sign the SR&R in ParentVUE. Every parent/guardian with a ParentVUE account, regardless of relationship to the student, will see the SR&R upon login to PVUE until the SR&R acknowledgement has been completed and/or until the acknowledgement made inactive by IT at the client’s request.  If the parent chooses, he/she/they may “skip” the SR&R acknowledgement by clicking on “Remind me later!”. The next time the parent/guardian logs in the SR&R acknowledgement will appear again.

The parent/guardian will NOT be required to click on the pdf document link to download/view the SR&R packet before the parent/guardian will be able to digitally sign and acknowledge the SR&R. The name in the digital signature box must match the parent first and last name in SIS exactly before the signature will be accepted. Schools will be provided with a resource sheet to assist parents/guardians in using Parent VUE to endorse the Parent/Guardian Signature Sheet.

While use of ParentVUE  to submit the SR&R signature sheet is preferred, parents/guardians are not required to use ParentVUE to submit the SR&R Parent/Guardian Signature Sheet. In cases where ParentVUE is not used, parents/guardians should download the signature sheet (pg. 3) in the SRR from the FCPS public site. If a parent/guardian needs assistance accessing the signature sheet, they may contact their child’s school and ask that the school provide the form.

The SR&R Parent/Guardian Signature Sheet is due October 29, 2021.

Mask Up!

Masks are an essential tool in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and protecting those unable to be vaccinated. To ensure a safe start to the school year, masks will be required for everyone, regardless of vaccination status, inside FCPS school buildings.

With respect to Fall 2021 Health and Safety practices, FCPS will continue to follow the guidance put forth by clinical researchers and medical providers from the CDC, VDH, and the FCHD to ensure the safest classrooms possible. This includes FCPS’ face covering (mask) requirements. Click here for more information.

Dear Fairhill Families-

Wow! What an amazing first day of school we had together! Yesterday, we asked a fourth grade student, “What is one thing you love about Fairhill?”, she responded enthusiastically, “We have the BEST teachers!” Our staff is amazing and this short conversation is a great reminder for why we do the work that we do.  

We hope that your students came home and were able to share all of the things they learned and most importantly, share the strong relationships they built with teachers and new friends. Speaking of new friends, please take a moment now to mark your calendars for Popsicles on the Playground on Thursday, September 2nd from 6:30-7:30 to kick off our long Labor Day Weekend. We are hoping to see all of our Tigers there!

As always, we are here to support you and our students. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about how we can support all of our students best. 

With gratitude, 

Ted & Courtney 

Forms, Forms, Forms!

As we return to school each fall, there are certain mandatory forms that need to be filled out.  Please click on the following links to fill out the necessary documentation we require each year for every student.  You can either print the copies and send them in with your student, or you can email them to ackane@fcps.edu

1. Digital Resources at Fairhill-Parent Consent Form (read below)

At Fairhill Elementary, our teachers will use a variety of digital resources to support student learning and promote communication and collaboration with students and families. Some of the digital resources your child may use this year will require your consent before they can be used. You can find our school’s list of the resources that require parental consent on our website. Additionally, you can find more information about approved digital resources in FCPS here: https://www.fcps.edu/resources/technology/digital-resources.

 

Included on this page is also a link to a form where the enrolling parent or guardian will need to indicate whether or not their student is allowed to use the list of digital resources this year. This page also provides more information about how FCPS carefully reviews digital resources for approval and why we must request your consent before using certain tools. We encourage you to complete the parental consent for digital resources form as soon as possible, as your child will not be able to use the digital resources until we have received your permission. Please reach out to Stephen Giese, School Based Technology Specialist, if you have questions or concerns about the digital resources we’ve chosen to use this year.

A paper copy of the form can be requested and submitted in the main office at Fairhill.  

2.  Emergency Care Form or here for the online link to       WeCare@school.

3.  Health Information Form or here for the online submission link through              WeCare@school.

4.   Student Rights & Responsibilities Form

5.   Opt-Out Forms 

 

ParentVUE

The SIS (Student Information System) Parent Account is an online tool that parents can use to access information about their child’s attendance, class schedule and performance, discipline incidents, health information, and more. If you registered in the past, your account is still active. If you have not, please create an account using this link. Please contact the Main Office if you have any questions or need support. 

 Information parents will be able to access includes:

  • Progress Reports
  • Attendance
  • Health information
  • Significant Discipline incidents
  • Name of Classroom Teacher
  • Teachers’ email addresses
  • FCPS calendar
  • Student’s emergency contact information
  • Transportation information including bus stops and times
Transportation

As we begin the school, please assist with consistent transportation methods with your students.  This will assure smooth dismissals and less mishaps which, in turn, leads to less worry.  Thank you for your cooperation with this.  If your student takes the bus, please download the Here Comes the BUS app!  This lets you know where your student's bus is at all times.  You will need a ParentVUE account in order to sign up, as well as our school code which is 28982.

All students and staff are required to wear masks on all buses. The CDC federal order requiring masks be worn on public transportation remains in effect and applies to buses operated by Virginia public schools.

You can find your students' bus stops and times on your ParentVUE page.  

Schoology  

As many of you are already aware, FCPS has switched from Blackboard to another learning platform. 

Schoology is a learning space that enhances face-to-face and distance learning through communication, collaboration, and personalized learning.

Teachers use Schoology to post their classroom materials online; to provide a safe forum for students to discuss their ideas and collaborate on projects; and to assign and collect homework electronically. It helps students stay organized and it keeps the class connected.  As a parent you can set up a Schoology Parent Account to access your child’s classes, your child’s upcoming assignments, as well as school, class, and group announcements.

Please click here for more information, available in many languages. 

You will use your ParentVUE login name and password to access Schoology. 

Lunchtime

Lunch at Fairhill may look a little different this year from years past.  While FCPS is unable to implement full physical distance in our school with the return of 99.5% of our students, we will implement as much physical distance as our space permits. Some students will be eating in the cafeteria and some students will eat in their classroom in order to promote as much physical distance as possible. Please see below for more information about lunchtime at Fairhill:

  • Students will be required to wear masks in the cafeteria when not actively eating and drinking.
  • Students will be required to wear masks while going through the serving line. 
  • Students will put their mask back on when they finish their meal. 
  • Cafeteria spaces will be regularly and thoroughly cleaned with a sanitizing solution. 
  • Students will have an opportunity to to use hand sanitizer upon entering the cafeteria each day

At this time we are temporarily suspending the opportunity for parents and families to eat lunch with their child at school.  As health conditions improve , we hope to again offer  that opportunity for families. All students will be offered no cost breakfast and lunch for the entire school year. Menus are available here. 

Returning Strong for Five in Fall!

Fairhill Staff is excited to have our students back in person this fall!  Please click here to read all about the new rules and changes that will be implemented in FCPS schools this year, such as meal information, returning to school safely, health and safety guidance, and masking up. 

The first day of school is always a favorite day for teachers, families and students! It is important for children to establish the routine of coming to school. We ask all families to have your student commute the same way each day, both AM and PM as either a walker, by bus, or by Kiss and Ride beginning the first day of school.  The doors will open each day at 9:10 a.m. and dismissal is at 4:05 p.m. For example, if you want your child to ride the bus each morning, please have her/him ride the bus to school on the first day. 

Please talk with your child so they understand how they are going home and share with your teacher prior to the first day of school. Back to School Bash is a great time to share this information. This communication helps ensure that everyone is dismissed successfully.

This year, due to COVID precautions, we will have all staff members assigned to a duty post to help students walk into the building without families. In an abundance of safety, we will be encouraging families to say goodbye to their child outside and a staff member will walk them to their classroom. Families will not be allowed in the building to walk their student to class.

Hello Fairhill Families!

Throughout my transitions I have met many amazing teachers and staff who have been welcoming and happy to share all the wonderful things I will learn about Fairhill. Last week at our kindergarten playdate, I had the opportunity to meet some of our newest Fairhill students and some returning members as well. I could not be more thankful for the support during the transition. I am looking forward to many opportunities to meet you, talk with you, work together, and learn together. I hope to see you all at the Popsicles on the Playground PTA event on September 2nd at 6:30 p.m.

Cultural Observances and Religious Holidays

The Fairfax County School Board voted to approve a calendar for the 2021-22 School Year that is designed to recognize, respect, and honor the plurality of religious and cultural observances in Fairfax County. The calendar ensures students will not have to make choices between honoring their cultural or religious beliefs and missing a test or school activity. 

On the 15 observance days listed below, [SCHOOL] will not schedule tests or quizzes. Tests and quizzes will be given before any of these days, so students are not expected to study on the observance day. 

The calendar recognizes 15 diverse religious and cultural observances including:

  • Eid al-Adha
  • Rosh Hashanah 
  • Yom Kippur
  • Día de los Muertos
  • Diwali
  • Bodhi Day
  • Three Kings Day/Epiphany
  • Orthodox Christmas
  • Orthodox Epiphany
  • Lunar New Year
  • Ramadan
  • Good Friday
  • Theravada
  • Orthodox Good Friday/Last Night of Passover

The 2021-22 calendar also separates spring break from any religious or cultural observances.

Fairhill (in-person) Tours

We are so excited to welcome all of our Tigers back to the building this year! We know it has been awhile (if ever) since some students have been in the building so we are offering group tours to walk around the building with a staff member to help students get re-acclimated to the building. This is strictly a tour of the building to see the main entrance, library, cafeteria, gym, art room, music rooms and all common spaces. Classrooms will not be set up yet so students will be unable to see their classrooms.

The intention of these tours is to support students who spent the past school year in a virtual setting and have been away from Fairhill for a long time. These tours are for rising 1st-6th grade students only and will only last about 15 minutes. Another plan is in the works for our rising Kindergarten tigers so be on the lookout for details coming soon! 

When signing up, please put student name and grade in the comment section! (One slot per family, please.)

Please sign up for a slot by clicking here

Please reach out to Mrs. Korb if you have any specific questions!

Important Bus Ridership Survey!

On July 29, 2021, the Office of Transportation Services (OTS) will conduct a student ridership survey for all eligible riders. It is important that parents respond to the survey by August 4, 2021 and submit a separate survey for each of their children enrolled in FCPS. If the survey is not completed and returned, the student will not be added to a bus route at the beginning of the school year.

During the school year, changes to the intent form can be made with your school's SIS operator if the need for transportation changes or the survey is not returned by August 4, 2021. It may take up to five days to update transportation schedules.

This is a reminder that all students, drivers, and attendants must wear face coverings when boarding or riding on a school bus. Parents/guardians should review their ParentVue account for updated bus route assignment information after August 10, 2021.

Administrator Avenue

To Our Dearest Fairhill Community, 

We hope that everyone has been able to relax (at least a little) and enjoy the ease of students not being in school and online for school! The past year and a half has certainly been remarkable and we know that it has taken a toll on our families and overall community. We can't wait to have a fantastic kick off to our in-person school year!! 

We are proud to share that we have over 100 Fairhill students attending summer programs in July.  We have Bridge to Kindergarten, SOAR, and Young Scholars classes. We are all wearing masks when the students are here and are anticipating this to be the same once the school year starts for students on August 23rd. (More information will be shared soon.)

The FCPS focus for 2021-2022 is relationships, connections and trust.  These three pillars form a strong foundation to support the social-emotional health of students, parents, and staff as we return to school.  It is our goal that each and every child feel safe, secure, and cared for from day #1, August 23rd. 

We will be hosting our Back to School Bash on August 19th as well as our Back to School Bus Tour where staff will be coming to a neighborhood near you! Be on the lookout for more information about these fun events in the coming weeks. 

As always, we are a team and we are so excited to welcome everyone back to Fairhill soon. Please feel free to reach out with any questions, concerns or compliments you may have. 

Sincerely, 

Tim Stanley           &         Courtney Korb

Interim Principal                Assistant Principal
