Welcome our New Sleepy Hollow Family Liason 

My name is Indira Mendez Flores.  I graduated as a teacher in my country in El Salvador in 1997. I studied at NOVA Community College in 2005 earning a Childrens Development Assistance certificate. Before working at FCPS as a parent liason, I worked as a Spanish teacher at Minnieland Day Care and prior to that I was a school bus driver with Prince WIlliams County for 17 years. In my free time, I love to spend time with my 3 adult children, 4 grandchildren and my cat, Rafi. 

I will be at Sleepy Hollow on Tuesdays and Thursdays till the end of this school year and then begin full time in August 2024.

Parent Input for Class Placement

As the 2023-2024 school year is coming to a close, your Sleepy Hollow staff is starting to prepare for the 2024-2025 school year. Class placement is one of the most important tasks that our staff engage in during the last weeks of school. When it comes to class placements, we consider many things, such as heterogeneous groupings, balancing academic abilities, and maximizing the support our resource teachers can provide students. 

If you feel that there is pertinent information to support your child’s success, please complete this optional Parent Input Form by Friday, May 24th.

Your child’s current classroom teacher, specialists, counselors, and administrators will collaborate to make well-balanced classes. We value and consider your insight into your child’s learning needs. Please note that this system is not intended for families to request specific teachers.
