Tdap Notice for Parents of 6th Graders

Virginia Law requires that all students entering 7th grade receive a booster dose of the Tdap vaccine prior to the beginning of school. The Tdap vaccine protects against tetanus (lockjaw), diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough) and is usually given around the age of 11, although it can be given as early as seven years of age.

In order for your child to begin 7th grade you will need to submit a copy of your child’s immunization record showing the Tdap vaccine before the first day of school on August 25, 2020.  It is recommended that all paperwork is submitted to Sangster's office by June 12, 2020.

NOTE: After June 12th, 2020, T-dap Documentation will need to be delivered directly to Lake Braddock MS or Irving MS.


Kindergarten Orientation

There will be a Kindergarten Orientation for both parents and students at Sangster Elementary School on Wednesday, April 1st at 6PM.  We encourage parents to schedule a registration appointment prior to the Orientation.  Please call 703-644-8203 or email mthoelscher@fcps.edu for an appointment.  Please share this information with any parent of a rising Kindergarten child in your neighborhood that may not have a child currently at Sangster.


Gentle Reminder

All students must be in their seats by the 9:10 a.m. bell.  If your child is running late, an adult must bring them into the office and sign them in.
