Advanced Academic Program Level IV Referral and Screening Meeting Wednesday, September 29 | 6:30-7:30pm | virtual

This meeting will now be held virtually via Zoom. Zoom link:  https://myfcpsk12.zoom.us/j/91738515236?pwd=RlBqUmpmSGFEWmkvb2wxVUc5WDRRdz09

Parents of students in grades 2-6 who would like to refer their child to the Level IV Screening committee should plan on attending this meeting.  The Level IV program is for students who require enrichment in all four core subject areas, Math, Science, Social Studies and Language Arts.   

Students who need the Level IV program are generally ones who are above grade level in more than two areas of the curriculum for at least 80% of the year.  These students often will have mostly 4’s on their report cards, meaning that they exceed expectations in their classrooms.  Nationally normed test scores for these students often fall in the range of 120 and above.  These students should be able to pass advanced on the SOL math and reading tests (500 or above). 

This meeting will explain how to refer your student, which forms to complete and what kinds of work samples are important for the file. 

If you cannot attend, the Power Point presentation will be shared on the Lake Anne website after the meeting.   

Questions?  Contact Mrs. Overton, Advanced Academic Resource Teacher, at  dloverton@fcps.edu

Student Holiday: Labor Day Weekend

Calendar Reminder: Monday, September 4th is a student holiday for the Labor Day weekend.  Classes will resume on Tuesday, September 5th. 

Back to School Night Changed to Virtual Format Postponed to September 14

Many families have asked for a virtual Back to School Night because people are hesitant to be around large crowds. 

In response to that request, we will be changing our Back to School Night to a virtual format on Tuesday, September 14, 2021.

Teachers will create an introductory video about themselves and their classroom.  Each classroom teacher will have a synchronous interactive session where parents can ask questions.

More details will follow in next week’s News You Choose.

How Pausing, Isolating, and Quaranting Helps Keep Our School Safe

Since the beginning of August 2021, the majority of COVID-19  cases have been acquired through community spread, OUTSIDE of school buildings. 

FCPS’ layered prevention strategies are working to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our schools. Pausing, quarantining, and isolating are tools we use to keep schools safe when a positive COVID-19 case is reported. Understanding the difference between the three scenarios can help families - and staff - be prepared.

Pause

A pause to in-person instruction is a short-term safety measure used by FCPS and the Fairfax County Health Department (FCHD) to allow time to investigate and determine the safest way to address a positive case within our school community. The pause will be initiated by the FCHD for anyone who interacted with an individual who reported a positive COVID-19 case.

  • A pause typically lasts between 24-48 hours while FCHD verifies vaccination status and completes contact tracing.
  • Vaccination status may reduce the time spent in a pause, but must be verified every time an individual is put on a pause. 
  • The FCHD does not accept a negative COVID-19 test to release an individual from the pause. 
  • You will be contacted by the FCHD with a date they can return to school or work.
  •  This flowchart best explains what happens when there is a pause.
Close Contact

A close contact is any person, regardless of vaccination status, who is within 6 feet of a COVID-19 positive individual for equal to or greater than 15 minutes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) K-12 Exception indicates that students will not be identified as close contacts if they are at least 3 feet apart and are consistently wearing masks in the classroom setting. Adults are not included in this exception.

Quarantine

When a student is identified as a close contact, there are two things that may occur as a result:

  • Not fully vaccinated students who are identified as a close contact with someone with COVID-19 must remain home for 14 days after their last exposure. FCPS will notify a student of their return date.
  • Fully vaccinated students must remain home until your vaccination status is verified. Upon verification of vaccination status by the FCHD, and if the student/staff is asymptomatic, they may return to in-person learning and activities once notified by FCPS of their return date.
Isolation

Isolation is the response when someone tests positive for COVID-19. Students who have been diagnosed with COVID-19, may not return until:

  • It has been at least ten (10) days since the student first had symptoms AND
  • The student must be fever-free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication AND
  • The student’s symptoms are getting better

FCPS is committed to providing students with opportunities to remain engaged in learning when they are in a pause, quarantine, or isolation period. This chart outlines the ways students receive instruction and materials.

Outbreak

It is important to note that more than one case reported by a student, staff, or visitor to a particular school or building does not always mean there is an outbreak. An outbreak is defined as two or more laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases with onset within a 14-day period who are epidemiology linked (a case in which the person has been exposed to a confirmed case in a way that a known transmission can occur), do not share a household, and were not identified as close contacts of each other in a setting outside of school during the health department investigation. 

FCPS’ goal is to keep students learning in-person all year. We are doing our part by implementing layered prevention strategies and working with FCHD to address positive cases and potential exposures. Every FCPS student and family can do their part by wearing masks, getting vaccinated when they are eligible, practicing healthy hygiene, and staying home when sick. 

To learn more about COVID-19 case notifications, watch this video and the SEPTA Q&A session.

Welcome back to school!  We would like to invite all of you to join the musical fun of playing an instrument in the Lake Anne Band or Orchestra. Band and strings will become one of your music classes for the entire school year during the specials time each week.

We would like enrollment forms returned by Tuesday, August 31st. Enrollment forms are to be completed on the google form at: https://forms.gle/4spHtPZq3CRWWYXR7 or scan the QR Code below. 

Safety is very important as well as having fun learning music.

Wind players will be provided with an instrument face mask as well as a bell cover. If you would like to just wear your normal face mask then sign up for a stringed instrument, or percussion. Hope to see many of you join the fun of playing a musical instrument.

 

Musically yours,
