Popsicles on the Playground 

We are looking forward to opportunities to bring students and families together this summer. We have set aside the following dates for students and families to connect with one another on the playground. 

  • August 2nd at 5:00 PM (New to Bonnie Brae and Rising Kindergarten Families) 

Be Wise, Immunize! Required Vaccines for 2022-23 School Year

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.

Kindergarten Registration 

Children turning 5 on or before September 30 should be registered for kindergarten for the 2022-23 school year. 

Now is the time for students to be registered. Schools are planning playdates, screenings, teacher visits, and other gatherings for kindergarten students to get to know their teachers and each other over the summer. Register soon to make sure you don’t miss out! 

Students should be registered at the school they will be attending. A boundary locator is available online, along with a list of required documents, and additional help for military families, families who need language assistance, and other forms of support. 

If you have not already, be sure to sign up for your school’s newsletter to learn more about school events, celebrations, and deadlines. Find the sign up link on each school’s website, or view the full list online.

Providing a Safe and Welcoming Space This School Year and Beyond

FCPS is proud of its caring culture and strives to provide a safe, welcoming, and inclusive space for all students and families. The Fairfax County School Board’s recently approved Trust Policy solidifies that commitment. It aligns with Fairfax County’s Public Trust and Confidentiality Policy to ensure that FCPS students and families can access FCPS benefits and services without fear that information will be disclosed, directly or indirectly, to federal immigration officials. FCPS’ new Trust Policy webpage will be live soon, with the policy and other important information available in eight languages. Please keep an eye out for the link in an upcoming issue of FCPS This Week.


Free and Reduced-Price Meal Applications Due This Summer

Families must submit an application and be approved to be eligible for free and reduced-price meals for the 2022-23 school year.

Interested families are encouraged to submit the Free and Reduced-Price Meal application ten  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.
