The following topics will be covered:

  • Most commonly used substances
  • In-depth opioid information
  • Reasons why youth use substances
  • How parents can support their children
  • Available FCPS and Fairfax County Resources
  • How students, parents, and community members can connect with support providers

Registration for the webinars is available online.

Last Day of Passover (April 23)


Many Jewish communities in the United States mark the last day of Passover (April 23) as the end of a Jewish holiday that celebrates the deliverance of Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. Passover is also known as Pesah, Pesach, or the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Many Jewish families in the United States eat a ceremonial meal known as the Seder, which involves telling the story of the exodus from Egypt as well as eating various symbolic foods, such as meat of the paschal lamb and bitter herbs, recalling the harsh life of slavery. (This holiday occurs when school is not in session.)
