New Student Registration for the 2022-2023 School Year

We are still accepting new student registrations, K-6! Students must be 5 years old by September 30th, 2022 to register for kindergarten. If you would like to register your child, please stop by the Wolftrap Elementary School office between 9am and 12pm, Monday through Friday. You can also start the process online by going to our website

If you have new neighbors moving in this summer, remind them to register as soon as possible.


Paperless Opt-Outs Available

As a part of our ongoing efforts to streamline paper processes, parents can now select a number of opt-outs 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-outs listed there.  If you need to set up your ParentVUE account, you can create one online via the FCPS ParentVUE Registration page.



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 speak with your family health care 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.


Changes to Medication Administration Management

This school year, we are changing some medication protocols to help ensure the safety of our medication administration management in Fairfax County Public Schools. These changes include:

  • Any time you drop off or pick up a medication in the health room, a Medication Delivery/Pick Up Form will be completed and signed by both the parent/guardian and the School Health Aide or FCPS staff member. This form will document that all required authorizations are complete, and the number of pills or amount of medication accepted/returned. A copy of the form will be given to the parent/guardian and school administrator.
  • Medications received will be verified to ensure the description of the medication on the container/packaging matches the medication in the container.
  • All medications must be in the original pharmacy container. Over the counter (OTC) medications must be in an unopened original container. It will no longer be acceptable for parents/guardians to bring in refills from home and place them into the container currently in the health room.
  • Only a 30-day supply of medications should be brought to school. No more than 100 tablets or pills of OTC medication should be brought to school.

All requirements outlined in FCPS Regulation 2102, First Aid, Emergency Treatment and Administration of Medication for Students, continue to apply.  


Free and Reduced Price Meal Applications

For the past two years, the federal government has provided no-cost meals to all public school students without the need to complete the annual Free and Reduced-Price Meal application. The extension of the no-cost meals benefit to all students is expected to expire at the end of this school year, meaning families must submit an application and be approved to be eligible for free and reduced-price meals for the 2022-23 school year. Learn more about the Free and Reduced-Price Meal program online.
