As a reminder, all FCPS schools and offices will be closed on Monday, January 20, for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Classes will resume on Tuesday, January 21. Also, schools will be closed for students January 27-28 for a teacher workday and staff development day, respectively. January 24 is the last day of the second quarter.
The Positivity Project theme for next week will be "Perseverance" and students will learn that this strength centers on an individual’s ability to spend long periods of time devoted to a single goal or set of goals. Those who persevere are able to set goals for themselves and then take active, calculated steps toward those goals. #otherpeoplematterJANUARY FOOD DRIVE

A parent or guardian who wishes for their child to wear a bracelet or device with GPS capabilities, such as an AngelSense, to school must now request principal approval for the device. Parents or guardians should utilize the new Request for Principal's Approval For Student Use Of GPS Bracelet/Device (SS/SE-349), located on the internet and intranet. If the device also includes communication features, parents must agree to disable these features during the school day and, if applicable, while on the school bus.
