Summer Learning

Summer Continuity of Learning

FCPS will continue to provide distance learning opportunities for students throughout the summer.Your students will have access to skill practice through the iReady digital lessons through the FCPS public Universal Screener website. Students will need to enter their FCPS login credentials to access these resources. These digital activities will be available until Friday, July 31st. If you have questions about this resource, please contact our Reading Specialist, Mrs. Soskey, at

Students currently accessing Lexia reading program will be able to continue using this resource throughout the summer.

Additionally, students currently in grades K-6 will receive both a Mathematics and a Language Arts Essentials Summer Practice Book in the mail by the end of June. Digital versions of the books will also be posted on the Continuity of Learning Blackboard page. These books will provide recommended practice activities for students to review essential content from the 2019-2020 school year; they are not intended to preview content from next year’s grade level but rather reinforce essential learning from this past year. 

As students access these activities from June 29 to July 31, they will have the opportunity to attend one virtual office hour each week with one of our own outstanding staff members. The schedule is as follows: 

Kindergarten: Mrs. Settar, Mondays, 9:00-10:00

Grade 1: Mrs. DeSimone, Wednesdays, 1:30-2:30

Grade 2: Mrs. Allan, Tuesdays, 10:00-11:00

Grade 3: Ms. Sherfey, Tuesdays, 9:00-10:00

First Day School Supplies - Orders Due July 1

It's hard to believe it but there will be a 1st Day of school next year, and it will be here (in some form) before we know it! 

We wanted to provide parents with the opportunity to safely tackle back to school shopping. You can order your students' school supplies for next year from the comfort of your home and without the risk of back to school shopping at big box retailers. Orders are due no later than July 1.

A few details:

  • All orders will be shipped directly to your home this year to accommodate whatever plan is decided on for the return to school. You will receive a personalized FedEx tracking number for your student's box. If you have already placed your order, it will still arrive at your home.
  • Unsure of whether you should order based on FCPS plans? You can cancel with a full refund if you contact 1st day by July 1. After that, there is a $15 restocking fee IF they have already packed the boxes/order for Crossfield.

Visit and you are just a few clicks away from getting everything you need for next year!!! It is super easy... Click, pay, done! 

Plus, while you’re on the site getting your supplies, look at their great selection of Vera Bradley, JanSport, and Under Armour accessories! Face masks are also available.
