Louise Archer News 6-10-24


We were thrilled to welcome back our Louise Archer class of 2018 students for the senior walk. Congratulations, 2024 Graduates!


From the Principal's Desk:

We are in the final days of our 2023-24 school year! It has been a wonderful year filled with learning opportunities and special experiences together. It is heartening to see the academic, social, and emotional growth our students have achieved together. As always, there are challenges and bumps in the road, but our students have persevered and thrived at Louise Archer. Thank you for the supportive role you played at home in partnership with us!

We have much to celebrate and our students are excited to enjoy some special events in the last week of school. Grade level end of year celebrations will occur through the last day of school. Progress reports will go home with all students on Wednesday, June 12th. As a reminder, this is an early release day at 2pm. We look forward to our final days together, as we count down to summer!

SOL Scores Posted in SIS ParentVUE

Families can find Standards of Learning (SOL) reports for spring testing in the SIS ParentVUE Documents section on or before the last day of school. Log in to your ParentVUE account to access the following:

  • For all students, the official SOL Score Report with overall and reporting category performance for all spring tests.
  • For students in grades 3-8, the SOL Growth Parent Report shows performance over time for state reading and math tests completed this school year. 

Visit the FCPS website for additional information about spring assessment reporting practices and timelines.

Student Laptop Return

The Technology Team is ready for students to return their laptops for the summer. If your child brings their laptop home, please help remind them to return them to school with their chargers

If your child is participating in a summer FCPS academic program, their laptop will be delivered to the school, so they are available for your child’s first day there.

Library Books

All library books are now due.  Please return any remaining books as soon as possible.  Students that still have books on their account received a notice in this week’s Tuesday folder.  If you have questions about library books, including lost books, please see Mrs. Simpson in the Louise Archer Library.

End of Year Medication Pick Up

The school health room is reminding parents and guardians that all medication stored in the health room must be picked up no later than the student dismissal time on the last day of school June 12, 2024.  Medication left in the health room after that time will be discarded.  It is school policy that medications must be picked up by the parent or guardian.  Medication cannot be sent home with your student.  However, with parent or guardian permission, a high school student may transport over-the-counter medications to and from the school health room.

Medication authorization forms for next school year may be obtained from the school or online at https://www.fcps.edu/resources/student-safety-and-wellness/school-health-services
