We are so proud of all the work our safety patrols are doing to keep our school community safe and thriving!

Principal's Message

Dear Lake Anne Family,

We've had another great week of learning at Lake Anne! This week students in our primary grades continued to dive into learning letter names and sounds with fun songs and routines. Our upper grades students are using technology to enhance their learning by exploring Lexia and the many other programs FCPS has to offer. As a reminder, if you have not signed the digital consent form, you can do so by following this link

We would like to thank the PTA and the Children's Science Center for hosting a wonderful Family Science Night! The students had a great time digging through fossils, coding robots, and learning about Space. We are looking forward to many more PTA events this year! You can learning more about how to join the PTA and events by following this link!

Finally, we continue to practice safety drills this week. Students participated in a bus evacuation drill and a lockdown drill. Student safety and security is our top priority. We are happy to report that students were able to follow directions quickly during these drills. Our teachers did an excellent job preparing students and following our safety protocols for these drills! If students have questions about the drill this document provides some Parent/Guardian tips to help you discuss the drill with your child. 

 

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. Stewart                           Dr. Rogers

Principal's Message

Dear Lake Anne Family,

 

This week at Lake Anne students continue to dive into learning and supporting our school community. One way students support our community is by serving as safety patrols. We are so excited to see all of our 5th and 6th grade students who are serving in this role! 

Our students' days are filled with so many things. Here are a few questions you might ask your child to spark conversation about their day...

What makes you happy at school?

What do you like best about ____ (insert subject)?

What did you do to help someone today?/What did someone do to help you today?

What was something that made you laugh? 

 

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. Stewart                           Dr. Rogers

  • Daily attendance routines, created at home or in school, can reduce stress for students and families and create a sense of safety and security, especially after chaotic transitions.  
  • Being in school helps students to get to know peers, teachers, and school staff, and to create trusting relationships that motivate students to participate in learning.  
  • Schools help students and families gain access to basic resources such as meals,  physical and mental health services, and fun enrichment activities including sports, clubs, music, afterschool, and summer programs.  
  • Showing up to school regularly helps students engage in learning that builds proficiency in reading and math that will help them to graduate from high school.
  • Students who attend school regularly do better academically in middle school and are more likely to graduate from high school when they miss less than a week of school each semester.

Dear Lake Anne Family,

This week at Lake Anne students continued to practice routines, get to know each other, and dive into many exciting learning opportunities. We have been excited to continue welcoming our therapy dogs and students have enjoyed spending time with them in their classrooms!

We were also very excited to welcome our new Superintended, Dr. Michelle Reid, for a visit to Lake Anne. Dr. Reid, school board member Melanie Meren, and District Supervisor Walter Alcorn had an opportunity to delve into the Lake Anne community during arrival. They were also excited to see many classrooms engaging in morning meeting in English & Spanish, had many conversations with students, and learned that there are many budding mathematicians here at Lake Anne!

This was a proud moment for Lake Anne as we were able to share the tremendous efforts of our teachers & staff, and experience the joy of learning our students carry with them each day!

 

Have a great weekend!

  • The majority of our students were in classrooms and ready to learn on time at 8:50 a.m. (Thank you, families!! 😊)
  • We began sailing into greatness to the sound of a ukulele

In support of this goal, FCPS provides [email protected] (weCare), an emergency care information system, available to FCPS parents and guardians who have registered for their own Parent account.

FCPS Trust Policy

You may have heard that the Fairfax County School Board approved a Trust Policy that solidifies our commitment to foster a caring culture and strives to provide a safe, welcoming, and inclusive space for all students and families. 

This policy aligns with Fairfax County’s Public Trust and Confidentiality Policy to ensure that FCPS students and families can access FCPS benefits and services without fear that information will be disclosed, directly or indirectly, to federal immigration officials.

The school division is already performing much of the work referenced in the Trust Policy. The policy, along with the upcoming regulation, will serve to solidify our efforts, so all FCPS staff, students, and families have a common understanding of the policy.

Every FCPS employee plays an important part in carrying out the Trust Policy and will demonstrate cultural responsiveness in supporting families, students, and other staff by protecting the privacy of personally identifiable information (PII) of students and families. Employees will follow a clear, standardized process for requesting, accessing, or disclosing prohibited personal information as outlined in FCPS Regulations 2202 and 4220.

Additional information is available in multiple languages on FCPS’ Trust Policy webpage. Please email FCPS’ Office of Professional Learning and Equity, [email protected], with questions about the policy. 

Free and Reduced-Priced Meal Applications

For the past two years, the federal government has provided no-cost meals to all public school students without the need to complete the annual Free and Reduced-Price Meal application. 

 

 

The extension of the no-cost meals benefit to all students is expected to expire at the end of this school year, meaning families must submit an application and be approved to be eligible for free and reduced price meals for the 2022-23 school year. 

Interested families are encouraged to submit the Free and Reduced-Price Meal application before the first day of the 22-23 school year. The online application will be available later this summer and accessible via the FCPS homepage.

Students and families are invited to join us for our Meet and Greet Open House on Thursday, August 18th between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. The meet and greet will give you an opportunity to meet your child’s classroom teacher, drop off your school supplies, become familiar with the building, and make or reconnect with friends. Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is hosting Popsicles on the Playground immediately after Open House and looks forward to our school community getting to know one another.

You will receive your child’s teacher name and classroom information on Wednesday, August 17th via an eNotify email message.

The first day of school is Monday, August 22nd. We will follow our full-day schedule. The doors of Lake Anne Elementary will open at 8:30 a.m. Students are expected to be in their classrooms ready to learn by 8:50 a.m. The school day for everyone begins at 8:50 a.m. and ends at 3:35 p.m., Monday through Friday.

On behalf of all of the staff members at Lake Anne, we want you to know that we cannot wait to see you!

 

Let’s make a SPLASH together,

Mrs. Stewart                           Dr. Rogers

Principal                                  Assistant Principal

 

Kiss & Ride

To ensure Kiss and Ride (Car Riders) runs smoothly this year, we will use a number system. 

If you plan to use Kiss and Ride at any point this school year, please complete this google form

Kiss and Ride Procedures

1. When you arrive for pick up, please place the Kiss and Ride number so that it can be easily seen on the dashboard

2. LAES staff members will communicate the numbers to students waiting inside the building

3. Once the number is called, students will come outside and staff members will help them get into their cars

4. We ask that all parents remain inside their vehicles to help Kiss and Ride run quickly and efficiently

What you will receive

  • 4 Kiss and Ride placards to accommodate all vehicles that you may use for Kiss and Ride
  • 1 Backpack Tag per child with their Kiss and Ride number

Materials will be available at Open House on August 18 and as parents sign up for Kiss and Ride throughout the year!

Free and Reduced-Priced Meal Applications

Summer Beach Book-In Free & Reduced Meal Applications

Free and Reduced-Price Meal applications are now available on the FCPS website. Interested families are encouraged to submit the application at least ten days before the first day of school. A new application must be submitted every school year.

In addition to qualifying for free or reduced-price school meals, approved students may qualify for benefits such as waived or reduced fees for instruments, uniforms, field trips, FCPS class fees, and Parktakes classes. Schools also benefit from funding opportunities based on Free and Reduced-Price Meal application numbers. 

Paper copies of the application are available in the main office. If you have questions or need assistance with the Free and Reduced-Price Meals application, please contact the main office (703) 326-3500. 

Student Immunizations

As we begin to look ahead to the 2022-23 school year, Be Wise, Immunize! Immunizations are required for public school entry and help keep children protected from many diseases. Many children missed their well check-ups and their recommended childhood immunizations during recent years of disruptions from COVID-19. It is critical to catch up now to keep children healthy and protect them from serious diseases.

We encourage you to check with your healthcare provider to make sure your child is up to date on required immunizations for the 2022-23 school year as soon as possible. If your child needs a vaccine to complete their records, you can make an appointment with your healthcare provider or visit the Fairfax County Health Department website for a schedule of child immunization clinics. 

Remember to request documentation of your child’s immunizations and bring that to the Lake Anne main office as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact us at (703) 326-3500.

Summer Meal Kits through August 8

Summer Meal Kits will be offered every Tuesday at the following locations:

Meal Kits will consist of 7 days of breakfast and lunch.  

Last distribution is planned for August 8, with double meal kits offered this day.  

All FCPS students (regardless of age) are eligible for free meals, as well as other county children that are eighteen (18) years and under. Parents/caregivers picking up meal kits for children should let staff know how many children's meals they need.  

No cost meals (breakfast and lunch) will be available for all FCPS students attending FCPS summer school programs.
