Kindergarten and New Student Registration


Did you know that every school has a Family Liaison? Family Liaisons welcome and orient new families to the school and community, and help them understand the school's culture, policies, procedures, and practices. They can also help connect families to resources in the community. Family liaisons might also assist a family in transitioning to a new school and encourage family-school partnerships to help ensure their student's success and healthy development.

If you have questions or would like more information, call Aldrin at 703-904-3800 and ask for Sarah Connolly.  Sara habla español 

Family liaisons serve as an important link between families and schools. They represent a variety of cultures, languages, and races, and can help families access the information and assistance they need to support their children and ensure their academic success.

Find out how family liaisons can support you and your family.

Talking Points - Communication Between Families and School

Talking Points - Download and Resources

Easy and safe communication between families and schools.

What is TalkingPoints?

TalkingPoints is an easy and safe way for families can communicate in their home languages with their child’s teachers for free. We will be using this platform to communicate with you about your child’s education and progress.

How can families use TalkingPoints?

There are two ways families can use TalkingPoints.

  • School and teacher messages will come directly to the phone number that is registered in our system as a SMS text or through the TalkingPoints Parent App.

  • You can reply by text or through the app.

Families will receive messages in the language they have listed as their correspondence language. Families can reply in any language and the message will be translated into English for the school. If families prefer to not receive text messages from TalkingPoints, they can reply with "GOODBYE" at any time.


The FCPS Bullying Prevention and Intervention public website has been updated to include a video to educate parents on what bullying is (according to the Students Rights and Responsibilities document) and what they can expect when a bullying allegation is reported to a school administrator.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has launched a COVID-19 Testing Locator website, which can help families find no-cost COVID-19 testing sites.

The locator is part of the CDC’s Increasing Community Access to Testing (ICATT) program, which focuses on at-risk communities. Testing is available at pharmacies and other locations and is provided at no cost to individuals with or without health insurance and in areas with an increased demand for testing. 

More information via the CDC’s recent announcement is available at the following link:



“Eating disorders are serious but treatable mental and physical illnesses that can affect people of all genders, ages, races, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, body shapes, and weights. While no one knows for sure what causes eating disorders, a growing consensus suggests that it is a range of biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors. Eating disorders are not fads or phases, and can have serious consequences for health, productivity, and relationships.”

In collaboration with the Fairfax County Health Department, FCPS has developed a webpage with detailed information and resources to be provided to parents and guardians of Fairfax County Public Schools. This information may be found at the FCPS Eating Disorders webpage.


On our Aldrin Mental Health Wellness page, you will find many resources that support mental health and wellness.

What Families Can Do to Fight Drug Misuse

FCPS is committed to raising awareness about the opioid epidemic with our educators, parents/caregivers, and students. Together, we can help ensure our students thrive.

What can families do?

  • Show you disapprove of underage drinking and other drug misuse. More than 80% of young people ages 10-18 say their parents are the leading influence on their decision whether to drink. 
  • Show you care about your child’s health, wellness, and success. 
  • Show you are a good source of information about alcohol and other drugs. Find helpful resources on the FCPS Opioid Awareness webpage
  • Pay attention to your child and discourage risky behaviors. 
  • Build your child’s skills and strategies for avoiding drinking and drug use. Talk with your child about what they would do if faced with a decision about alcohol and drugs, such as texting a code word to a family member or practicing how they will say, “No thanks.”

약물 오남용을 막기 위해 가족이 할 수 있는 일

FCPS는 교직원, 학부모/보호자, 학생과 함께 오피오이드 유행에(opioid epidemic) 대한 인식을 높이기 위해 최선을 다하고 있습니다. 함께라면, 학생들의 건강과 행복을 지킬 수 있습니다.

가족은 무엇을 해야 할까요?

  • 미성년자의 음주 및 기타 약물 오남용을 반대하는 모습을 보여주세요. 10~18세 청소년의 80% 이상이 부모의 영향이 음주 여부 결정에 가장 큰 영향을 미친다고 답했습니다. 
  • 자녀의 건강, 웰빙, 성공에 관심이 있다는 것을 보여주세요. 
  • 알코올 및 기타 약물에 대한 좋은 정보를 제공한다는 것을 보여주세요. FCPS 오피오이드 인식 증진 웹페이지에서 유용한 자료를 확인하세요. 
  • 자녀에게 주의를 기울이고 위험한 행동을 하지 못하게 하십시오. 
  • 음주와 약물 사용을 피하기 위한 자녀의 기술과 전략을 길러주세요. 가족에게 암호 단어를 문자로 보내거나 "싫어/안돼"라고 말하는 방법을 연습하는 등, 자녀가 술과 약물에 대한 결정에 직면했을 때 어떻게 할 것인지에 대해 자녀와 함께 대화하십시오.

TIP SHEET FOR PARENTS - Use the PNP Method When Giving Your Child Feedback

Your child brings you a draft of a report for school. The first thing you see is a misspelled word. If you start by pointing that out, your child may become immediately discouraged and resistant. Instead, use the PNP method to make it easier for your child to hear your constructive comments

Help your student succeed by encouraging them to attend as many days as possible, but do make sure your student stays home if they are sick. Visit FCPS’ website for information on when you should keep your child at home.

If your child has a chronic illness, make sure to notify their teacher, so that assistance can be provided if needed. Please contact us as soon as you know your child will be absent.

🤒 언제 학생은 집에 있어야 할까요?

학생들이 질병이나 다른 이유로 학교에 출석하지 않는다 하더라도 학교를 나오지 않으면 학습 손실로 이어집니다.


최소의 기간 동안 학생이 학교를 빠지도록 도와야 합니다. 그러나 학생이 아플 경우 집에 머물러 쉴 수 있도록 도와주십시오. 언제 자녀가 집에 있어야 할지에 관련된 정보는 FCPS 웹사이트를 통해 알아보실 수 있습니다.

자녀가 만성 질환을 앓고 있는 경우, 학교 측에서 그에 알맞은 도움을 제공할 수 있도록 선생님께 알려야 합니다. 자녀가 결석한다면 즉시 연락하여 알려주십시오.

가족분들은 좋은 출석 습관들이기를 읽어보실 수 있습니다.

Why Do We Need a Strategic Plan? 
The Strategic Planning process is well underway, with the Community Forums beginning in less than three weeks. But why do we need a new strategic plan? 

Similar to a roadmap, a strategic plan clearly defines the best route for us to take in the years ahead to reach our goals. Our students are preparing for careers that don’t exist today. In order to keep pace with these needs, we need to rethink our plans for the future—and how we will best serve our students for this new era.

¿Por qué Necesitamos un Plan Estratégico? 

El proceso de planificación estratégica está muy avanzado, y los foros comunitarios comenzarán en menos de tres semanas. Pero, ¿por qué necesitamos un nuevo plan estratégico? 

Similar a un mapa de carreteras, un plan estratégico define claramente la mejor ruta que debemos seguir en los próximos años para alcanzar nuestros objetivos. Nuestros alumnos se preparan para carreras que hoy no existen. Para seguir el ritmo de estas necesidades, tenemos que replantearnos nuestros planes de futuro y la mejor manera de servir a nuestros estudiantes en esta nueva era.

Winter Weather - Snow Days and Learning 2023-2024

FCPS will be returning to its previous procedure for snow days for the 2023-24 school year. There will be no virtual learning when school is closed due to bad weather. 

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

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