Fairfax County Public Schools Will Begin School Virtually


Dr. Brabrand and the School Board decided to make the fall semester of school virtual to ensure student and staff safety. Please read the beginning of his message below. 

Dear Parents, Caregivers, and Staff,  

The changing course of the COVID-19 pandemic with infection rates surging both nationally and regionally has required us to alter our plans for school year 2020-21. 

Today, the Fairfax County School Board supported my revised recommendation that we begin the 2020-21 school year with virtual learning for all students. The online school year will begin, as scheduled, September 8 Should health conditions improve, we would first bring back students for intervention supports on a limited basis. Following that, we would work to bring students back to school as soon as possible starting with elementary school students, select PreK-12 special education students and English Learners.
