FCPS remains committed to continued learning for students in this extraordinary time. Learning Packets are one part of the Distance Learning Plan in recognition that technology access is a challenge for students and families across our division. Weekly packets are one way we ensure that all students and families have consistent access to learning for their grade level and content. Please take advantage of the Learning Packets with the following in mind:

  • Packets are a blend of review and new learning.
  • The activities in the packet support the learning that teachers are providing for students through distance learning.
  • Packets are posted to FCPS 24-7 Learning Blackboard every Friday, April 10 - June 5. Mail schedules will vary but are aimed to reach families by the start of each instructional week, whenever possible.
  • Answer Guides are posted to FCPS 24-7 Learning Blackboard with grade-level packets to support families in using packets with their children. Answer Guides are not mailed.
  • The enrolling parent may opt-out of receiving a mailed version of their child’s packet. To opt-out, please visit
  • Packets will not be collected and graded.
  • Teachers may choose to use tasks within the packets as part of their instruction with students.

If you have questions about the activities in the packet, please reach out to your child’s teacher.
