Magical Math Tour

Magical Math Tour performance photo.

Many thanks to PTA for a wonderful assembly this week! Mr. Brian Curry brought his Magical Math Tour to Clermont and students were treated to an exciting show that integrated math concept with magic!

Lost & Found

We have accumulated a large number of coats, sweatshirts, and outerwear in our lost and found bin. Please remind your child to look for their lost item next week. We have relocated the Lost and Found to the front lobby for now, and all remaining articles of clothing will be donated in January.

Stay Safe This Season: VaxUP and Test

The holiday season and colder weather brings more indoor gatherings. Delta continues to spread and a new variant’s impact on community transmission remains unknown. We are fortunate to have easy access to two tools to keep ourselves safe and schools open.


Vaccination opportunities are available across Fairfax, whether you need your first dose or a booster. Visit the health department’s website to find a list of providers or make an appointment. 

Diagnostic Testing 

Diagnostic testing is now available for students at six drive-through locations. You may take advantage of these services if you are a close contact or are experiencing symptoms. Appointments are not needed for diagnostic testing but families do need to register in the secure online portal. Information about student diagnostic testing, including site locations and schedules, is available on the FCPS website
