News & Reminders from FCPS

Immunization Reminder

All students are required to be immunized against certain communicable diseases to attend school in the state of Virginia. It is important for all students to receive the required immunizations. 

Please talk with your family healthcare provider about whether or not your children are up to date on their vaccines before the new school year begins. Submit updated immunization records to your school as soon as possible. 

More information on immunization requirements and the necessary documentation is available online.

Summer Resources

Many FCPS resources are available to help students and families have a fun, safe, and healthy summer. Our Summer Resources webpage will be updated throughout the summer months. This link includes information about summer meal kits which will be available through August 8.

Free and Reduced-Price Meals Application

NEW for the 2022-23 School Year:

Any family interested in free or reduced-price meals MUST submit a new application, even if your child has received free meals in the past.

Interested families are encouraged to submit the Free and Reduced-Price Meal application 10 days prior to the first day of the 2022-23 school year. The online application will be available later this summer and accessible via the FCPS homepage.  

Students approved for Free and Reduced-Price Meals may qualify for additional benefits such as waived or reduced fees for instruments, uniforms, field trips, FCPS class fees, and Parktakes classes. Schools also benefit from funding opportunities based on Free and Reduced-Price Meal application numbers. 

Watch your email and our website for more information. Learn more about the Free and Reduced-Price Meal program online.

Paperless Opt-Outs Available!

As a part of our ongoing efforts to streamline paper processes, parents can now select a number of opt-out’s electronically via ParentVUE.  Once you have signed into your ParentVUE account, simply select the “Student Info” tab and click on “Edit Information.” You will find opt-out’s listed there.  Parents that do not yet have a ParentVUE account will still be able to use paper forms for notification. If you need to set up your ParentVUE account, you can create one online via the FCPS ParentVUE Registration page.
