Attendance Form

Online Attendance Form

Do you have an early release, change in dismissal, late arrival or absence to report?

The preferred method for reporting any change in your student's school day is the Online Attendance Form located on the Crossfield website.  Scroll down to the blue ATTENDANCE box shown here and follow the prompts.  If you have a change in dismissal, select "early release" and provide an explanation in the "reason for absence".  This is the preferred method because this information is emailed to all of the front office employees. 

Student-Parent Survey for Federal Impact Aid

This week or next week you should receive a Student-Parent Survey for Federal Impact Aid.  All students are required to return the form to their child's teacher. 

Returning this form is important because information from this survey results in an additional $3 million in grants each year from the U.S. Department of Education. These funds are used to support all Fairfax County public schools and centers.

For each school-aged child in your household, please complete, sign, date, and return the survey to your child's school. If sections 1 and 2 of the survey do not apply to you, just check the boxes in Section 3. All forms must be signed, dated, and returned by November 5. All results are confidential

More information is available here.

Are you needing assistance with your child's picture taken on picture day?

If you are experiencing difficulties with your child's picture day order, please contact Lifetouch Customer Service at 1-800-736-4753.  Thank you. 

Should My Child Come to School?

Parents: Please use this Questionnaire to determine if your child should come to school on any given day. If your child is at school and displays Covid-like symptoms, they may be sent to the Care Room and required to be picked up. 

Parent/Guardian Access to Family Life Education Lessons in Schoology

The FLE lessons are available for you to review in the parent course in Schoology.

If you wish to opt your child out of all or part of the FLE program, please complete the opt out form included in this link and return the form to school prior to FLE instruction. Link to Opt Out Forms
