The Virginia state government expects all schools to take part in the Virginia Kindergarten Readiness Program (VKRP). The VKRP assesses literacy, mathematics, self-regulation, and social skills for students in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten. Details can be found here.
Anticipated Bus Delays
Due to the bus driver shortage, we will be increasing “double back” bus runs, meaning a bus is required to run two scheduled routes back to back that would normally have been covered by two separate buses. These “double backs” may impact delivery time to schools or bus stops and may have a domino effect, affecting after-school drop-off times.
There is now a new Emergency Broadband Benefit available to eligible households through the Federal Communications Commission. This is a temporary benefit that will help to lower the cost of internet broadband service during the on-going COVID-19 pandemic. Find out more.
Parent Technology Help Desk
The Parent Technology Help Desk will continue to support parents and students. The number is 1-833-921-3277 (833-921-FCPS). It will be answered by staff from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
