Ms. Mirnaly Vega

Dear Sleepy Hollow Families, 

I hope this finds you having a wonderful week and also staying cool with these unseasonably warm temperatures.  

As a reminder, next week, we will be hosting our first PTA meeting on Wednesday, September 13th at 7:00 p.m. Dinner will be provided for all parents, teachers and community members attending the meeting at 6:30 p.m. I am excited to share my first Principal's Report and also a bit about myself, recent updates during these first few weeks of school and our goals for 2023 - 2024. I continue to encourage all families to join the PTA. Our partnership with the PTA provides much needed financial support for academic enrichment programs, student field trips at each grade level, and an abundance of family activities planned for the year ahead.

As always, thank you for your support of all things Sleepy Hollow and I look forward to seeing many of you next week at our PTA meeting!

All our best,

Your Proud Admin Team, 

Mirnaly Vega and Tim Scesney

Principal and Assistant Principal

Important Forms for Caregivers to Complete 

  • ✔️ Caregiver Checklist: Have You Completed These Important Forms? 

During the first weeks of the year, caregivers receive many forms to complete. Several of the most important ones are below:

  1. Digital Resources Consent: Some FCPS-approved digital resources require parent/caregiver consent before they can be used by students. Find the list of resources which require consent on the Digital Resources - Parent Consent page. This page also includes directions on how to provide permission.
  2. Student Rights and Responsibilities: This document explains expectations for student behavior and adult responses. Parents using SIS ParentVUE will be prompted to sign the document when they log in to that platform. A printable version of the document with a signature sheet is available on the SR&R webpage.
  3. Opt-Outs: The Opt-Out Booklet is online or available from your child’s school. It contains information on: 
    1. Parents’ rights to inspect and consent or opt out before their child participates in certain surveys.
    2. Parents’ rights to inspect instructional materials.
    3. Rules regarding student records and disclosure of student information (including photo/video of students) and the right to opt out.
    4. Parents’ rights to opt out of the Social Emotional Learning Screener, physical exams not required by state law, career or social emotional counseling, Library Equity Access Pass Project, and/or
    5. The process by which complaints may be filed if parents or students believe their rights have been violated.

Paper forms can be signed and returned to school.

Immunization Reminder

  • 🩹 The Importance of Up-to-Date Immunizations

Immunizations are required for public school entry and help keep students protected from serious diseases. While COVID-19 vaccinations are not required, many other immunizations are. Check with your students’ healthcare providers now to make sure they are up to date on their immunizations. Immunization records can now be updated online in SIS ParentVUE through the Online Verification Update form. To access that form, click Online Packets in the top right of the screen after logging in to SIS ParentVUE. Caregivers can obtain an activation key letter to activate their SIS ParentVUE account by contacting  main office at (703) 237 - 7000.

Statewide Outbreak of Meningococcal

One of the required immunizations for students entering 7th and 12th grade is the meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY). The Virginia Department of Health is currently tracking a statewide outbreak of meningococcal disease. MenACWY can provide protection against the bacteria responsible for this outbreak.

Visit the Fairfax County Health Department website for a list of immunization clinics or contact your family’s healthcare provider. Appointments are required for most clinics.  

Remember to request documentation of your child’s immunizations to provide to their school. Get more information on immunization requirements and the necessary documentation
