January 5, 2024

Hello Justice HS Students, Families, and Community Members:

We hope this message finds you well and in high spirits after a fantastic first week back from winter break! It's inspiring to witness the enthusiasm and dedication that each member of our community brings to the new year.

As we look ahead, we want to inform you about some upcoming construction activities. Next week, we'll be conducting roofing work on our campus. Rest assured, these improvements are designed to enhance our facilities, and we've taken measures to ensure minimal impact on our daily routines and instructional settings.

Your understanding and cooperation during this time are greatly appreciated as we work towards creating an even better environment for learning and growth.

As you head into the weekend, we encourage everyone to stay informed about the weather forecast. Snow is a possibility for our area, so let's be prepared and stay safe.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to Justice High School. Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead!


Tiffany I. Narcisse, Principal

Empower our school, embrace our community, and educate to build positive futures as global citizens together.

Conversation to Raise Awareness of Fentanyl and Other Drugs

In this video, Superintendent Dr. Michelle Reid interviews the Fosters, a family who tragically lost their son Cayden to a half pill of fentanyl mistaken for Percocet. This heart-wrenching yet eye-opening video of their experience is essential to raise awareness among parents/caregivers and students about the dangers of fake painkillers.

Please join Dr. Reid on Wednesday, January 10, at 6:30 p.m., at Edison High School for a community conversation about opioid awareness. You may register to attend. However, registration is not required; it is simply for space considerations. 


The evening’s program is appropriate for parents/caregivers and students in grades 6-12. All attendees will receive free REVIVE! Narcan training during the event and learn about support services currently available within FCPS and Fairfax County.   

FCPS’ website also has resources to help you to start the conversation and additional support for families struggling with substance misuse.


Snow Days This Winter

For the current school year, FCPS will be returning to its previous procedure for snow days — there will be no virtual learning days when school is closed due to bad weather. 

During snow days, students may still access Tutor.com, complete any supplemental learning opportunities recommended by their teachers, and view educational programming (available virtually and on public access television channels):

Eleven snow days are built into the existing FCPS calendar. Eliminating virtual learning days will allow us to maximize students’ in-person learning and provide equitable access to instruction and student services.


No-Cost Mental Health Teletherapy for All High School Students

Is your high schooler experiencing anxiety, behavior changes, or challenges with peer and family relationships? If so, parents/caregivers can refer their children for weekly therapy with a licensed therapist through Hazel Health. Visit the Teletherapy webpage for information on how to opt your child in to this service.


Student and Family Resources

Fairfax County Public Schools has compiled a list of resources for students and families in case they need assistance while schools are closed for winter break. Please visit FCPS’ winter resources webpage for information on academic support, mental health support, and county resources related to food, clothing, housing, and other needs.




Justice High School PTSA Town Hall Discussion with Superintendent Dr. Michelle Reid

In December, the Justice HS community lost 15 year-old Madeline Valeria Moran Centeno to an accidental drug overdose. Our community, especially Madeline's family, have been in the throes of the aftermath of such a tragedy.

Monday's PTSA Meeting & Town Hall will focus on a conversation about drug use among our teens and related concerns, such as mental health wellness, school and community safety and public service communication. Superintendent Dr. Michelle Reid will join the conversation, along with Principal Narcisse (we are still confirming other FCPS and County leaders and staff). We are inviting the community to join us for this important discussion!

Day and Time: Monday January 8, 7:30 p.m.

In-Person Location: JHS, Little Theater (access via Door 17).

Zoom link:   https://jhsptsa.org/TownHall8jan24

R.S.V.P.: We want to have adequate seating, virtual capacity, and translation services, so please help us by submitting an RSVP: https://forms.gle/Zi9E2m1VqV8LcnpT8.

We strongly urge all of our community to attend this meeting. All are welcome! But, if you cannot attend and have questions or comments, please send to info@justicehsptsa.org.
