Floris Families, 

It is hard to believe that we are finishing the fifth week of school and heading into October next week. There are not enough words to share our gratitude for how hard the Floris staff are working to provide meaningful learning opportunities while maintaining the many safety protocols. The smiles on the faces of our students say it best!

It was so great to see everyone picture ready on Thursday, and to see so many classes outside throughout the week (when the weather cooperated with us). 

We are very excited to kick off the Positivity Project next week and look forward to seeing lots of green on Monday!

Have an amazing weekend!

  Positivity Project

Floris teachers and staff are excited to kick off The Positivity Project here at Floris! The mission of The Positivity Project, also referred to as P2, is to empower students to build strong relationships by understanding, appreciating, and living out the 24 core character strengths in us all. Ultimately, we want our students to develop PositivityInAction and OtherPeopleMindset! In order to do that, students will be focusing on one of the 24 traits each week. We will be spotlighting that trait in the Floris Friday Message so you can chat about that trait with your child! 

Starting next week, students will be engaging in discussions during their morning meetings and throughout their day about our Positivity Project weekly focus and traits.  Our focus for next week will be on our Other People Matter mindset.  

This will kick off our Positivity Project for the 2021-2022 school year and help us continue to grow our Other People Mindset

Please have your child wear green on Monday to help us kick off this awesome initiative!

Virginia Growth Assessment | Grades 3-6

Virginia Growth Assessment (VGA) is a new test required for students in grades 3-8. The state legislature introduced this requirement to measure student growth and progress within the school year in reading and mathematics.

For fall 2021, VGA will address content that was taught in the previous school year. The purpose of this fall’s VGA is to identify potential learning gaps resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. There is no “passing” or “failing” outcome for the VGA. Results will provide a starting point to measure growth and will offer information about areas of strength and areas for growth in reading and mathematics.

The following points may help you and your student better understand this assessment.

  • VGA must be taken in-person at school.
  • This online, computer-adaptive test is about half as long as the spring SOL test.
  • Questions use Standards of Learning (SOL)-like items to measure current knowledge and skills in the content area.
  • Student results will be used to help school staff plan for instruction and supports.

Students at Floris will take the VGA the week of September 27. Students only need to get a good night's sleep, have a good breakfast, and bring their fully charged laptops to school on their testing day. If you have questions about this state assessment for your student, please contact our School Test Coordinators, Shannon Daly and Amanda Dorr. 

Please remember you can find the breakfast and lunch menus and nutritional facts at FCPS Nutrislice- Floris

Reminders and Updates from Floris

GovDelivery 1 week ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Many parents continue to have questions about what all families can do to support the health and safety of our students and staff, and what steps are taken when a positive case is identified.

 

Parents: 
  • Complete the Health Screening Questionnaire daily. If your child presents with any illness or COVID like symptoms (runny nose, coughing, headache, body aches, fever, etc.), please keep your child at home and consult with your medical professional. While we understand this may be an inconvenience, our Floris families are the first line of defense when it comes to preventing community spread of COVID. If your child comes to school and presents with unexplained COVID symptoms, they will be placed in the Care Room and sent home with the Return to School Form. Your child must be seen by a medical professional to return to school with the completed Return to School Form.  
  • Communicate quickly with us. As soon as you have information that your child has COVID, please let us know. The sooner we have information, the sooner we can alert the health department to begin contact tracing. Information is kept confidential from other school families.
  • Send your child to school with a properly fitted mask. Wearing face coverings/masks is essential to mitigate the spread of COVID.  All masks do not provide the same protection for your child. Masks worn at school must be at least 2 layers and fit snugly over the nose and chin. Take a look at this document  for types of masks that are appropriate for students to wear at school. Single layer gaiters, vented masks, or masks with gaps that are too loose do not provide adequate protection. 
  • Talk with your child about wearing the mask.  Please talk with your child about the importance of wearing masks at school to protect each other against the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19, and the consequences of refusing to wear a mask. 
The School:
  • Follows safety protocols: Our staff ensure students are consistently wearing their masks, maintaining social distancing to the greatest extent possible, washing/sanitizing their hands frequently, and high touch surfaces are cleaned frequently. 
  • Responds quickly when someone tests positive and determines potential close contacts to a known positive case. If a student, staff member, worker or visitor tests positive and was at school during the infectious period (within 48 hours of onset of symptoms or 48 hours prior to a positive test), we review seating assignments and identify potential close contacts to the person who has tested positive for COVID. If your child is considered a potential close contact, we will notify you at that time. 
  • Pauses instruction for individuals identified as potential close contacts. Out of an abundance of caution, any individual who is identified as a potential close contact by FCPS staff will have to stay home from school until the Health Department completes its contact tracing and closes the investigation. This process may take several days. While your child is at home, the teachers will provide asynchronous assignments. More information is coming soon about additional learning connections. 
  • Works in collaboration with the Health Department. We cannot disclose details of the positive case to include the child's name, grade, class or any additional information; or the staff member's name or assignment. The Health Department will contact you directly and will direct the appropriate students to quarantine and identify next steps. Once the Health Department has completed their investigation, we will invite any students who were staying home per FCPS staff direction to return to school, unless the student is required by the health department or a doctor to quarantine. We will inform the community when the case is closed. 
  • Notifies the community: Every Friday (or the last school day of the week) an email will be sent to the school community to notify if one of more cases were reported at the school during the week. If no cases are reported at the school that week, an email will not be sent.

It is our hope that sharing information about the current process will help alleviate some of the stress that is inherent in this situation.  Ensuring our students stay healthy when at school is a community responsibility.  If we all work together, we can minimize the impact of COVID in our schools and community.  We appreciate your support, flexibility, and patience.

Floris Families, 

Another busy and amazing week at Floris. Band and strings classes have started, students are beginning to really get into the routines, and our teachers are analyzing the beginning of the year assessments to determine the next best steps for our students. It is so wonderful to see the learning in our outdoor spaces and in our classrooms each day. 

We hope families have seen the notifications that FCPS has changed the format for informing families of positive COVID cases in a school. Each school will share an update on Friday or the last day of school for that week, if there were any reported COVID-19 positive cases in the school that week. We will contact families that are directly impacted as soon as possible. If you don't hear from us directly, your child is not considered a close contact of someone that was diagnosed with COVID.

Arrival and dismissal continue to improve, and we appreciate everyone's patience through these first four weeks of school. 

Have a fantastic weekend!

There will be a virtual information session about Advanced Academic Programs (AAP) for all Floris families on Monday, September 27 at 6:00pm. This session will discuss the four levels of service for AAP as well as the process for screening and identification for these programs. The Zoom link will be sent prior to the meeting.  

Important Dates:

December 15, 2021 – Full-time AAP (Level IV) Referral Forms due to Amy Albanese (Grades 2-6)

Our new Learning Management System (LMS) is Schoology! 
So... what does that mean?  
  1. Schoology will be our hub for student, parent, and staff information!  
  2. Schoology will be the delivery method for any digital instruction (replacing Google Classroom).
  3. Parents can view all student courses in Schoology to keep up with digital content. 
    👉👉Please note that teachers are using lots of screen-free resources, so logging into Schoology will only show you the digital footprint of their courses. 
  4. We will all be learning this new system together!

Please visit the Schoology Page on our Floris ES webpage for more information, including a video and tour of our Floris Schoology courses.  

How Do I Access Schoology?

1. The login page for Schoology is lms.fcps.edu

2. Your login credentials are the same as your SIS ParentVue ones.

        👉  Need a SIS login?  Request one here!

Happy exploring! Student Rights and Responsibilities (SR&R)

FCPS’ updated Student Rights & Responsibility booklet is now available online and in the ParentVue section of the Student Information System (SIS). The SR&R booklet explains expectations for student behavior, and adult responses to enhance school safety and to create a fair, equitable, and supportive school environment. 

Each year, we ask parents to review, sign, and return the SR&R to their child’s school. In ParentVue, you may now download and digitally sign the SR&R. Every parent/guardian with a ParentVUE account will see the SR&R upon login to ParentVUE until the SR&R acknowledgement has been completed.

Once you log on, you will see the Parent Acknowledgement. Please read the acknowledgement and sign your name. Your name in the digital signature box must match the parent/guardian’s first and last name in SIS exactly before the signature will be accepted.

Please take a moment to log into ParentVue in your child’s SIS account to access the SR&R. Signatures are due by October 29, 2021.

Please contact us if you are having difficulty accessing the booklet.

Information about Advanced Academic Programs in FCPS

GovDelivery 1 week 6 days ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

ADVANCED ACADEMIC PROGRAMS (AAP) ELEMENTARY CONTINUUM OF SERVICES 

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is committed to challenging all students through talent development and differentiated instruction to meet the needs of advanced learners. 

FCPS offers a continuum of advanced academic services for all students in Grades K-12. The continuum of services approach allows for a focus on matching services rather than labeling students. Students have:

  • Multiple entry points for deeper learning opportunities in specific areas of need as they develop.
  • A cluster group of students with similar academic needs to continue growing in their learning.

Teachers, administrators, and Advanced Academic Resource Teachers (AARTs) work together to provide the following levels of service at the elementary level: 

 

Tier 1 Access to AAP Curriculum and Strategies, Grades K-6 (Level I) 

All students have opportunities to think critically, reason, and problem-solve. 

  • All teachers use critical and creative thinking strategies in their lessons
  • Classroom teachers provide opportunities using materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework a minimum of once per quarter.

Because Level I services are for all FCPS students, there is not a screening process.

 

Differentiated Lessons in Areas of Academic Strength, Grades K-6 (Level II) 

Some students are strong in one or more subject areas. Classroom teachers may adjust instruction for students in these areas by:

  • Providing different assignments and resources in those subjects
  • Grouping students by their strengths, interests, and readiness
  • Classroom teachers provide additional challenges using materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework.

Level II Services are re-evaluated each year.

 

Part-Time Advanced Academic Programs, Grades 3-6 (Level III) 

Some students have advanced academic abilities in multiple subject areas. They need part-time AAP services. 

  • Students work with students that have similar academic needs through weekly pull-out classes or weekly co-taught lessons with the AART and classroom teacher.
  • Teachers provide frequent opportunities to use materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework in Language Arts, science, social studies, and/or mathematics.

Level III services continue through Grade 6. Students do not need to be evaluated each year.

 

Full-Time Advanced Academic Programs, Grades 3-8 (Level IV) 

Some advanced learners need a full-time advanced academic program with differentiated instruction in all four core content areas (Language Arts, mathematics, social studies, and science). 

Students eligible for full-time AAP services are cluster grouped on a full-time basis and receive:

  • Full-time use of materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework in Language Arts, science, and social studies curriculum, and
  • Mathematics curriculum with depth and complexity that is at least one year above grade level.

Level IV services continue through Grade 8. Students do not need to be evaluated each year.

 

Screening for Levels II-IV

Multiple criteria are reviewed holistically to determine eligibility for all FCPS advanced academic services. Committees consider student work from opportunities with AAP lessons, examples of student reasoning or gifted behaviors from class discussions and activities, progress reports, achievement and ability scores, and parent input. Committees consider whether students have access to a group of students with similar academic needs to support academic conversations and growth in the classroom.

Eligibility decisions for Level II and Level III services are made by a committee at the local school

Screening for Level II and Level III services is ongoing throughout the school year. To refer for Level II or III services, submit the AAP School-Based Referral Form to the AART and the local school.

Eligibility decisions for full-time Level IV services are made by the countywide central selection committee.

Screening for Level IV services occurs during specific screening cycles:  

  • Fall screening is available for students who are new to FCPS since January.
    • Fall referrals are due Oct 7, 2021.
  • Spring screening is available for any Grade 2-7 FCPS-enrolled student 
    • The referral window is from the first day of school - December 15.

Referral forms for Levels II-IV are found at https://www.fcps.edu/node/38893

 

For more information, please visit the AAP website at: https://www.fcps.edu/registration/advanced-academics-identification-and-placement/current-fcps-students.  

Ability Testing

FCPS uses ability testing as one part of the holistic screening process for Levels II-IV services. Test scores are not weighted or prioritized in the holistic screening process.  

  • All students in Grade 1 take the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT).
  • This year, students in Grades 2-3 take the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT). 
  • NNAT and/or CogAT may be administered to students in Grades 3-6 who do not have an ability test score during the regularly scheduled testing windows.  

Parents or guardians may request a one-time retest in grades 3-6 during the fall testing windows. Please contact the Advanced Academics Resource Teacher, Amy Albanese abalbanese@fcps.edu no later than September 15 to request the CogAT or October 15 for the NNAT.

Please do not wait for test scores before submitting a referral for your student in Grades 2-7 as there will be no referrals for Level IV screening accepted past the deadline.

Elementary Parent Information Meeting

A parent information meeting will be held virtually at Floris Elementary on September 27 at 6PM. The AART will provide information about levels of service and examples at Floris Elementary, explain the screening processes, and answer questions about part-time school-based and full-time Level IV services.

Young Scholars

FCPS developed the Young Scholars Model to help identify students from historically underrepresented populations for AAP services. The model provides additional opportunity to nurture talent and build confidence so that students can meet their potential. 

 

Twice-Exceptional (2e)

Some gifted students also have learning disabilities. These twice-exceptional, or “2e” students need strengths-based instruction. Their learning challenges also must be supported. FCPS has created a 2e handbook to help schools and families understand how to identify and serve 2e students. You can find these resources by going to www.fcps.edu and searching “2e.”

 

Middle and High School AAP

Additional information about middle and high school services may be found on the Advanced Academic Programs web page. https://www.fcps.edu/academics/academic-overview/advanced-academic-programs

Floris Families, 

Fall weather is starting to appear as we have shifted into meteorological fall in the month of September. There are still so many smiles under the masks. We are glad to be able to partner together to help keep all our students and staff safe at school.

Our first PTA meeting of the school year was held on Wednesday, and it was wonderful to meet our board members and hear plans for the year. PTA meetings are being held via Zoom as requested by many families. We hope to see you at the October meeting. For information on the Floris PTA, please check out their webpage: https://florispta.org/.

We enjoyed seeing the Red, White, and Blue today in honor of Patriot Day and in recognition of the 20th anniversary of September 11.

Wishing all who observe the holiday a meaningful Yom Kippur.

Have a super weekend,

There will be an information session about Advanced Academic Programs (AAP) for all Floris families on Monday, September 27 at 6:00pm. This session will discuss the four levels of service for AAP as well as the process for screening and identification for these programs. Any parent wishing to exercise their one time re-take of the CogAT (for students in grades 4-6) need to make the request to Ms. Albanese by September 15. Watch for more details about the September 27 Parent Information Session. 

Important Dates: 

October 7, 2021   Fall Screening Full-time (Level IV) Referral Forms due to Amy Albanese (Grades 3-6 only for families new to FCPS)

December 15, 2021 – Full-time AAP (Level IV) Referral Forms due to Amy Albanese (Grades 2-6)

Return to School Safety – Masks 

We begin the new school year with a mask requirement in place for everyone indoors on school properties and buses. Any student who does not comply with the mask requirement, and is not exempt from the requirement as outlined in Regulation 2109.1, will not be allowed to participate in face-to-face learning. Students who refuse to attend school due to a refusal to wear a mask, will receive an unexcused absence. Intentional removal of or refusal to wear a face covering will be treated as a violation of the FCPS dress code policy (Regulation 2613).

Please talk with your child about the importance of wearing masks at school to protect each other against the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19, and the consequences of refusing to wear a mask. We appreciate your help in encouraging students to do their part to contribute to a safe school environment.

Floris School-Wide Birthday Celebration Policy

Due to safety and allergy concerns, we are not allowing edible birthday treats in the school to celebrate student birthdays. This includes homemade and prepackaged treats. You are welcome to send in non-edible birthday items, provided one per student is supplied. Another great birthday treat is to send in a book for the class library.

Thank you for your understanding!

It was wonderful to see many parents at the Back to School Nights on Tuesday night. Unfortunately, the weather caused a cancelation of Back to School Night last night. We look forward to seeing 2nd-6th grade families tonight on the Zoom links sent by teachers.  We appreciate our teachers creating their presentations to share this important information. We also appreciate our families taking time to engage in these virtual meetings to learn more about their children's learning experience this school year. 

For those celebrating Rosh Hashana next week, Shanah Tovah!

Return to School Safety – Masks 

We begin the new school year with a mask requirement in place for everyone indoors on school properties and buses. Any student who does not comply with the mask requirement, and is not exempt from the requirement as outlined in Regulation 2109.1, will not be allowed to participate in face-to-face learning. Students who refuse to attend school due to a refusal to wear a mask, will receive an unexcused absence. Intentional removal of or refusal to wear a face covering will be treated as a violation of the FCPS dress code policy (Regulation 2613).

Please talk with your child about the importance of wearing masks at school to protect each other against the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19, and the consequences of refusing to wear a mask. We appreciate your help in encouraging students to do their part to contribute to a safe school environment.

Floris School-Wide Birthday Celebration Policy

Due to safety and allergy concerns, we are not allowing edible birthday treats in the school to celebrate student birthdays. This includes homemade and prepackaged treats. You are welcome to send in non-edible birthday items, provided one per student is supplied. Another great birthday treat is to send in a book for the class library.

Thank you for your understanding!

COVID Notification Process

GovDelivery 3 weeks 5 days ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Dear Floris Families,

As the number of cases increase around the county, we want to share some additional information about the COVID processes in place. Thank you for your help in keeping all of our students and staff safe at school.

Daily Health Screen Questionnaire

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. 

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 come to school. Please consider the questions in the Health Screening Questionnaire each morning before sending your child to school. If you answer “YES” to any of the questions, please keep your child home. 

Keep your child home if you suspect your child may have come in contact with someone who has COVID.

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.

If your child comes to school and presents with COVID-like 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. 

Please be overly cautious and keep your child home if you are awaiting COVID test results. 

Communicate Quickly with the School

As soon as you have information that your child has COVID or likely has it, please let us know. We only reveal the name of a student to the health department. The sooner we have information, the sooner we can alert the health department to begin the contact tracing.

Ensure Your Children Come with an Appropriate Mask 

Aligned with guidance provided by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) has established procedures for the use of face coverings/masks (cloth or disposable) for students, staff, and visitors designed to mitigate the spread of COVID. This document highlights the types of masks that are appropriate for students to wear to school. 

What will happen if there is a student who tests positive for COVID in my child’s class?

If a student tests positive and was at school during the infectious period (within 48 hours of onset of symptoms), we will alert the entire school community. The school reviews seating assignments throughout the school day and identifies potential close contacts to the student who has tested positive for Covid-19.

If your child is considered a potential close contact, we will notify you immediately. If your child is currently at school, we will ask you to come pick your child up from school.  

What happens if my child is determined to be a potential close contact by FCPS staff?

Out of an abundance of caution, any student who is identified as a potential close contact by FCPS staff will have to stay home from school until the Health Department completes its contact tracing and closes the investigation. We have been told that this could be up to 72 hours. While your child is at home, your child’s teachers will provide assignments for them to access. If your child does not have their computer at home, we will work with you to pick it up at school.

Please note that FCPS staff can only identify potential close contacts; we are not identifying students who have to quarantine. Only the Health Department can determine if your child needs to quarantine through their contact tracing investigation. 

Case Information

We cannot disclose details of the positive case to include the child's name, grade, class or any additional information; or the staff member's name or assignment. The health department will contact you directly and will direct the appropriate students to quarantine. The school will notify the entire community when the contact tracing is complete. Once the Health Department has completed their investigation, we will also invite any student who was staying home per FCPS staff direction and who has not been required to quarantine per the Health Department to return to school.

Floris Friday Message 8/27/21

GovDelivery 1 month ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

In this Friday Message you will find:

  • Principals' Message 
  • Back to School Nights
  • Digital Resources Consent 
  • Safety Drills
  • Return to School Safety – Masks 
  • Schoolwide Birthday Policy 
  • Cultural and Religious Observations 

Floris Families, 

This week was amazing as we welcomed our students back into the building for the 2021-2022 school year! The energy, smiles, and excitement radiated throughout the school. We are working out many of the arrival/dismissal challenges which are greater this year than in previous years, and it is getting incrementally better each day. 

We are so delighted to see students bringing healthy, nourishing lunches. We notice that many of our younger students have difficulty opening their lunch containers. Please have them practice at home to reduce the need for staff having to touch these containers. Please don’t forget to include forks/spoons in lunch bags.

Community members have reached out to Floris to ask that we remind parents not to park on private property while attending school events or at arrival/dismissal. We ask if you are parking behind the school that you are not blocking anyone's driveway, you are at least 15 feet from the fire hydrant, and you are not on anyone's private property or on the sidewalk. Please be respectful of others' homes and property. 

Our teachers are excited to see families virtually next week during Back to School Nights. Links will be shared by the teachers for each evening. We will be offering an Admin Meet and Greet from 7:00-7:30pm all three evenings, and those Zoom links will be shared with the Back to School Night links. 

We know there are many unknowns ahead of us this school year, and we will continue to provide important communication throughout the year. Thank you in advance for your grace, flexibility, and understanding throughout this school year. 

Have a wonderful weekend, 

Holly Walker, Principal, hjwalker@fcps.edu

Amanda Dorr, Assistant Principal, acdorr@fcps.edu

#FlorisStrongerTogether

Back to School Nights are a time for parents to learn about the curriculum and expectations in both the class and grade level for their children.

This year's Back to School Nights will be held virtually and teachers will be sending links to parents. 

  • Tuesday, August 31: Kindergarten-1st Grade, 6:30-7:30pm 
  • Wednesday, September 1: 2nd-3rd Grade, 6:30-7:30pm 
  • Thursday, September 2: 4th, 5th and 6th Grade, 6:30-7:30pm
Digital Resources Consent

At Floris, we use a variety of digital tools to support meaningful student learning. Some of these tools require parental consent before they can be used.

If you have already provided consent - THANK YOU!  For those of you that have not, you can find our school’s list of the resources that require parental consent here: https://florises.fcps.edu/adopteddigitalresources.

After reviewing these resources, please complete 🔗 this form 🔗 to indicate whether or not your student is allowed to use the list of digital resources this year. Your child will not be able to use the digital resources until we have received your permission, so the sooner we can get the permission the better!

Please reach out to our School Based Technology Specialist, Willa McGrath (wimcgrath@fcps.edu) or your child's teacher if you have questions or concerns. THANK YOU!

Along with the COVID Safety Mitigation Strategies, we are also focusing on our safety drills. Students and staff will be masked and social distance as much as possible during drills. Students will be instructed by teachers that during a true incident, their safety and required quick action overrules all social distancing requirements.

  • Evacuation/Fire Drills- two in the first 20 days of school and then one per month through June 2022
  • Bus Evacuation Drills- one each semester 
  • Lockdown Drills- Our first one will be next Monday, August 30 and the second required drill will be in January 2022. 
Return to School Safety – Masks 

We begin the new school year with a mask requirement in place for everyone indoors on school properties and buses. Any student who does not comply with the mask requirement, and is not exempt from the requirement as outlined in Regulation 2109.1, will not be allowed to participate in face-to-face learning. Students who refuse to attend school due to a refusal to wear a mask, will receive an unexcused absence. Intentional removal of or refusal to wear a face covering will be treated as a violation of the FCPS dress code policy (Regulation 2613).

Please talk with your child about the importance of wearing masks at school to protect each other against the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19, and the consequences of refusing to wear a mask. We appreciate your help in encouraging students to do their part to contribute to a safe school environment.

Floris Schoolwide Birthday Celebration Policy

Due to safety and allergy concerns, we are not allowing edible birthday treats in the school to celebrate student birthdays. This includes homemade and prepackaged treats. You are welcome to send in non-edible birthday items, provided one per student in the class is supplied. Another great birthday treat is to send in a book for the class library.

Thank you for your understanding!

Cultural Observances and Religious Holidays on the FCPS Calendar 

 

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, Floris 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. 

In addition, Floris will not schedule events including field trips or special activities on any of the 15 observance days. 

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
  • Eid al-Fitr 

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

Great First Day

GovDelivery 1 month ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

We want to say thank you to all of the staff, students and families for an amazing first day. 

Lots of smiles and laughter coming from under the masks of our staff and our students. Recess, PE, Art, Music, Spanish, Reading, Writing, Morning Meetings, STEAM, Math, and many other amazing things were happening around the building. 

We thank you for your patience and flexibility this afternoon with dismissal. Some of our buses arrived at Floris at 4:30 or later, and we know the Kiss & Ride line was long.  We are collaborating with transportation and as a staff to look at ways to continue improving dismissal. 

Please make sure your child and your child's teacher are aware of how he/she will go home each day. We had quite a few students at all grade levels who were confused about riding the bus or going to Kiss and Ride. 

Walkers should be met at Door 4 for dismissal. Kiss and Ride families should NOT get out of your car. Please wait in the Kiss and Ride line, and students will be brought out to the vehicle. Kiss and Ride numbers will be distributed tomorrow. 

We are so grateful for all of our staff and how hard they have worked to be ready for this day and for our families for their continued support and grace.    #FlorisStrongerTogether

Here are just a few reminders for the first day of school: 
  • Our bell schedule is 9:15am-4:00pm daily. 
  • Doors will open at 9:00am each morning. 
  • Please make sure your child is wearing a mask that fits. We recommend bringing additional masks in case one gets wet, dirty, etc. 
  • Students can receive a free breakfast and lunch each day. Breakfast will be “grab & go” and five days of hot lunches are returning this year. The menus are available at FCPS Nutrislice- Floris 
  • Parents should screen their child each day for illness and any student presenting any signs of illness should remain at home. Details can be found at the FCPS Return to School page. 
  • For students' safety and to implement layered protection strategies, we will ask families to say goodbye to students at the exterior doors and allow staff members assigned throughout the building to get all students to class safely. 

Returning to school is always a big adjustment in many ways. Please allow extra time for arrival and dismissal during the first week of school. We will all be establishing new routines, and your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated. 

 

We are so excited to see everyone tomorrow morning (Monday, August 23) for the first day of school!

Our doors will open on Monday at 9:00am. School officially begins at 9:15am, with dismissal at 4:00pm. Both arrival and dismissal will be staggered to allow us to have more space in the hallways. 

Please be aware that we are unable to accommodate visitors for lunch at this time. We have set up the cafeteria for social distancing and will have only students and staff during lunches as we start the school year. Please watch for details on when we are ready to accept volunteers and lunch visitors.  

We hope you have a wonderful weekend and we will see our students on Monday!

If your student is in need of school supplies, please email Sarah de Kramer (school counselor) at shdekramer@fcps.edu

Safety Information 

Universal Masking: FCPS requires everyone (students,  teachers, staff, and visitors) to wear a mask inside schools and FCPS buildings. Students and staff may remove masks while actively eating, for outside recess, physical education class, or other outside activities.  

Cafeteria: We have redesigned the cafeteria and lunch plans for increased safety while students are unmasked. The tables are all facing the stage, so students are not facing each other as in previous years. We have adjusted our schedule so that only one grade level will be in the cafeteria at a time to allow distancing between students. Students will wear masks when they are not actively eating. 

Handwashing/Sanitizing: We will continue to focus on hand washing/sanitizing throughout the school day. Some examples include: entering and exiting the playground area, before and after eating, and when entering the classroom. 

Buses: FCPS school buses will seat more than one student to a seat as needed.  This is similar to the bus experience for students last spring and during summer school.  Masks are required on the bus.

Care Room: If a staff member observes a student displaying symptoms of COVID-19, s/he directs the child to our Care Room (separate from the Health Room, where kids get medications, band-aids, etc.) for care and parent pickup.  FCPS has protocols for our staff to follow when infections are known or suspected.

We want to ensure our families that while we can never guarantee total student safety, we have layered safety mitigation measures in place, and our staff takes them seriously. We are planning for a fabulous year of learning and fun and want all of our Eagles to be healthy and able to have a fantastic learning experience this year.

FCPS Food and Nutrition Services staff are ready to serve healthy meals to students and staff. This year, all students receive no-cost breakfast and lunch! Breakfast will be “grab & go” at each school so students are prepared to begin their day of learning and five days of hot lunches are returning this year. The menus will be available at FCPS Nutrislice- Floris
