FCPS Calendar, Registration, Back to School, and Transition Questions

FCPS Calendar Questions:

1.  Where can we access the updated school calendar?

The calendar can be accessed on our website when the update is available.

2.  With the hybrid model, what will happen for the students when we have a day off during the week like a holiday or an inclement weather closing? 

The weekly schedule will remain the same, meaning there will not be specific teacher-directed in-person, remote or virtual learning on the given day off.  For example, the week of Labor Day, Monday is a holiday; therefore, “A “ students will return on Tuesday and “B” students will return on Thursday. 

3.  If we have an inclement weather day,  would it be turned into a virtual learning day?

In the event that we have inclement weather days, virtual learning may be used as instruction on those days. This will be at the discretion of the Superintendent.
