Cameron News You Choose 7/21/2020

Message from School Administration


We hope your family has been healthy and are staying cool in these hot July days.  We both had a chance to relax a bit with family and now are busy at Cameron planning for a safe return to school.  We are working on staffing our teachers for virtual and in-person classrooms, creating the master schedule for both environments, planning teacher professional development for online learning, incorporating feedback from families, and keeping updated on the latest health and safety precautions.

Earlier in the month, we had the opportunity to host a parent town-hall regarding return to school.  We will be planning another virtual event for August to keep families up-to date. 

Mark your calendars for September 1st which will be our virtual Back to School Night.  At this time, we will share the updated curriculum and what all families can expect academically for their students for the upcoming school year starting on September 7th.  Families can also expect to receive classroom teacher assignments at that time. 

Thank you for your continued support and flexibility for our school community.  We appreciate all of our families and would not be successful without you!!


The FCPS School Board approved a new student start date to September 8, 2020. 

Students will now return to school after Labor Day.
