Parent Feedback Survey: FCPS Revisiting Reopening Plans

Dear Fluco Families,

On Wednesday, October 14, 2020 our school board will be revisiting discussions regarding reopening plans, and we would like to provide them with updated feedback from our families now that we are a month into virtual learning. We will provide an additional update regarding our instructional plans following the meeting.

In accordance with our current COVID mitigation strategies, we would utilize our Hybrid Instructional plan to return to in-person learning two days per week. In this proposed hybrid model, the majority of our teachers will be assigned to either in-person or virtual/remote students. This will allow our teachers to focus their instructional efforts exclusively on one group, ensuring a quality experience for every student.  This means that your child may not have the same teacher they have had since September 8th.  Schools will communicate directly with families regarding teacher assignments.

There is a possibility of additional days per week for in-person instruction if classroom and bus capacity meets the criteria of our Health Mitigation Plan.  Ultimately, the number of days that students will attend on-site will depend on the interest for in-person learning that we receive from families. Face mask coverings will continue to be required for all staff and students at all times, with the exceptions of designated mask breaks and outside activities. 

Please know that even if there is a decision to return to in-person learning, we will continue to provide the choice for virtual/remote learning to our families for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. We are requesting that you please complete this survey (https://forms.gle/KV9nBFiWzMacJTtQA) for each student in your household by October 6, 2020 to provide information regarding your instructional preference for your child.
