Upcoming Meetings, including Return to School Work Session

Dear Fairfax County Students, Families and Staff,

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a good and restful break. I am sending this email just as a quick reminder that the School Board will be holding a virtual Work Session tomorrow, Tuesday, January 5th, which will include an update from Superintendent Brabrand regarding FCPS’ Return to School plans. I know many are interested in the latest updates and plans.

The Return to School portion of the session is scheduled for 3pm - 6pm.  Please see below for more details and information on how to view our meetings.

I will be resuming my office hours, town halls, and PTA round tables and will be updating you about these events in the next few weeks.  I look forward to connecting with you in these venues! 

Here’s to hoping for a much better 2021 than 2020!

Kind regards,
