Wise Words

November 1, 2019


Hello Shrevewood Family,

I wanted to share a quick update with our Administration Team.  As you know, Ms. Holley is still out on short term medical leave and she is doing well. As soon as I know her specific return date, I will get the word out to you. In the meantime, I am pleased to let you know that we have a retired FCPS principal, Mrs. Rose, joining our Administration Team until Ms. Holley returns. 

Mrs. Rose is looking forward to her time at Shrevewood.  During her career with FCPS, she was a special education teacher in middle and elementary school before serving as an assistant principal and principal at three different elementary schools.  As an assistant principal in the McLean Pyramid, she and I were colleagues at neighboring schools.  Mrs. Rose is also the parent of four adult children who are all graduates of FCPS.  

When you see her around the building, please give her a warm Shrevewood welcome! 

Thank you, 
Josh DeSmyter

Kiss & Ride


Most elementary schools in Fairfax County have established an area called the Kiss & Ride, which is designed as a safe place for adults in private vehicles to load and unload children. The Kiss & Ride is separate from the school bus area, which helps schools to avoid problems associated with cars passing buses, or cars parking in bus only zones and fire lanes. It also establishes a pedestrian traffic pattern to keep children safe. Our hope is that if all drivers cooperate with guidelines, we will be able to provide an efficient and safe transfer of children. To ensure safety for everyone, observe the following rules when loading and unloading children:

  • All cars must follow the designated route for Kiss & Ride. See map below for further details.
  • You must display your Kiss & Ride number that you are assigned in your windshield EVERY DAY at pick up.
  • Pull forward as far as possible into four drop off zones before loading or unloading.
  • Load and unload in the Kiss & Ride area only.
  • Load and unload from the passenger side of the car only.
  • Keep “good-byes” brief.
  • Remain in the driver’s seat. (Staff members can assist with car doors.)
  • Do not pass other cars that are loading or unloading unless directed to do so.
  • Do not park in the Kiss & Ride lane and leave your car unattended.
  • Do not park in the parking lot to load or unload children.
  • All students must wear seatbelts and/or be in a carseat if appropriate. Exit Kiss & Ride promptly after loading or unloading children.
  • As designated by Virginia Law, Shrevewood parking lot is a hands-free cell phone zone.
