Graduation Cord Update

Cords that students are allowed to wear at graduation are restricted to those that the FCPS guidelines have approved.  The guidelines currently state that:

“Only school-provided and nationally recognized honor society cords and stoles are appropriate.”

The Superintendent’s office recently approved two additional cords:

In consideration of the tenets of the Eagle Scout requirements and strong commitment to character, service and leadership, this red, white, and blue cord is allowed for this graduation season.  The corresponding “Gold Award” cord for Girl Scouts is also added for our female graduates. The Girl Scouts cord is green and white.  These cords can be obtained by the students through the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts organizations.

Student Medication

The school health room is reminding parents and guardians that all medication stored in the health room must be picked up no later than the student dismissal time on the last day of school. Medication left in the health room after that time will be discarded. It is school policy that medications must be picked up by the parent or guardian. Medication cannot be sent home with your student. However, with parent or guardian permission, a high school student may transport over-the-counter medications to and from the school health room.

Medication authorization forms for next school year may be obtained from the school or online at  

If you have any questions, please contact your school health room aide at 703-488-6310 or your school public health nurse, Dawna Poyner at 703-488-6312.

Thank you for your cooperation and have a good summer.
