Return to School Fall 2020
We are excited to be back with our Wildcats this fall virtually. This school year will be a little different for all of us but we want to be sure you are able to find the information you need to be best prepared for school. As a reminder, the first day of school is Tuesday, September 8th!
Monday Morning Meetings
Monday Morning Meetings for grades 1-6 will be hosted on a full grade level link in Blackboard 24-7. This is different from their classroom link they received in Gmail. The purpose is to allow for community building among the grade level and for students to work with other adults in that time. Please follow these directions for accessing Monday Morning Meetings!
Kindergarten students will continue to log into their regular link on Mondays!
Students will continue to access their virtual classroom on Tuesday-Thursday through GMAIL.
Parent Technology Help Desk
Fairfax County Public Schools has launched a new Parent Technology Help Desk! The help desk can help you troubleshoot challenges that may arise during distance learning such as camera or microphone issues, accessing gmail, and much more. You can reach them at 1-833-921-3277 (833-921-FCPS) between 7 a.m.-11 p.m., seven days a week. If the help desk is unable to solve the issue on the phone, they will enter a ticket on your behalf and the request for help will be transferred to the appropriate FCPS team.
Should you need a language other than English, let help desk staff know, and a interpreter will join them on the line. (FCPS also has existing parent information phone lines, available in eight different languages, that can assist with general questions about FCPS.)
FCPS has also set up an online portal to allow older students and parents and guardians to request technology help directly.
