Gator Bytes: News and General Information for Kings Glen ES COVID Update - FCPS

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) continues to monitor cases and report COVID-19 outbreaks, as outlined by the Virginia Department of Health. Currently, Fairfax County's Community Level remains low as determined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our layered prevention strategies are being implemented based on our COVID-19 Community Level, as recommended by the CDC.

However, FCPS has seen a recent increase in COVID-19 cases and outbreaks and parents/legal guardians are reminded of the daily health screening requirement to check their students for mild, cold-like symptoms each day, such as fever, runny nose, cough, or shortness of breath. Parents and guardians are advised to keep their students home if sick and get them tested to help stop the spread of COVID-19. 

VaxUp

We continue to encourage everyone to get vaccinated or boosted as soon as they are eligible.  COVID-19 vaccination keeps children safely in school and childcare settings, and also while participating in sports, playdates, extracurricular activities, and other group activities. Strong community vaccination rates help keep our schools safe for in-person learning. To learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine, or to find a vaccine provider, visit the Fairfax County Health Department website.

Masking

As a reminder, students may return to school after five days of isolation if they are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication) and symptoms are improving. As recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), individuals should continue to wear a well-fitting mask around others at home and in public for five additional days (day six through day 10) after the end of the five day isolation period. If individuals are unable to wear a mask when around others, they should continue to isolate for a full 10 days at home. While not required, wearing a mask while indoors is still considered an important way to protect yourself and others. Families are encouraged to discuss mask wearing as an additional layered prevention strategy.

Additional recommendations to prevent COVID-19 are available online.

Please send in a picture from your child's early years... from whenever that may be! It's always fun to see how our Gators have grown!  (Pictures should be no larger than 4x6 inches). Please note that pictures will not be returned, so copies are best. A bulletin board will be created to honor how much they have grown as they prepare to finish elementary school and move on to middle school. Please send pictures to the attention of Elaine Stottlemyer, School Counselor, or email to: [email protected]

Class Assignments for 2022-23

While there’s still plenty of action left in 2021-2022, we have already begun planning for the 2022-23 school year!  One of the most important aspects in setting up our students for academic and social-emotional success is his/her homeroom class assignment. Making the most effective match with teacher and classmates is a very thoughtful, careful process that involves many different criteria. If you would like Dr. Ritter and Mrs. Agner to consider any specific information about your child that school staff may not know, particularly regarding learning style and classroom environment, please submit via email to Christine Ritter and Cindy Agner by Friday, May 13.

Because you are the expert(s) on your child, we ask that you keep your information centered on your child and the type of learning environment you feel would be the most productive for him/her. Of course, with or without a letter, each child’s strengths and needs are considered in the lengthy and complex process of developing class assignments. With this in mind, please refrain from requesting a specific teacher by name.

On Monday, May 23rd, 5th and 6th Grade Chorus will perform their chorus songs over a live stream to the school at 1:05 p.m., during the first 4th grade specials block. This performance will also be recorded.

On the evening of Monday, May 23rd at 6:00 p.m., the Chorus will line up on the black top outside to perform their songs again for family and friends, who are invited to bring camping chairs or blankets to sit out and enjoy the show on what we hope will be a beautiful, warm spring evening. Chorus members should arrive promptly at 6:00 p.m. for a 10-minute warmup before we begin the concert. Families may set up their own chairs during the warmup. We anticipate being finished by 7 p.m. at the latest. Dress code TBA shortly.

In the event of rain, the afternoon recording will be posted in Gator Greetings for families to enjoy at home.

  Class Assignments for 2022-23

While there’s still plenty of action left in 2021-2022, we have already begun planning for the 2022-23 school year!  One of the most important aspects in setting up our students for academic and social-emotional success is his/her homeroom class assignment. Making the most effective match with teacher and classmates is a very thoughtful, careful process that involves many different criteria. If you would like Dr. Ritter and Mrs. Agner to consider any specific information about your child that school staff may not know, particularly regarding learning style and classroom environment, please submit via email to Christine Ritter and Cindy Agner by Friday, May 13.

Because you are the expert(s) on your child, we ask that you keep your information centered on your child and the type of learning environment you feel would be the most productive for him/her. Of course, with or without a letter, each child’s strengths and needs are considered in the lengthy and complex process of developing class assignments. With this in mind, please refrain from requesting a specific teacher by name.

April is the Month of the Military Child!

During the month of April, Kings Glen will celebrate and recognize the resilience of our military-connected students. We will be honoring these students and all of our families with military connections in several ways:

  • Honor Wall Bulletin Board:  Please send photos of past and present military members of your family to be displayed on this Bulletin Board. Pictures that include KG students are welcome. Pictures can be sent by hard copy to Ms. Stottlemyer (please note that pictures will not be returned) or can be sent electronically to [email protected].
  • Look for a link on the Gator Greetings page for students to make a Flipgrid video sharing their experiences as a military family child.
  • Join all of FCPS in a Spirit Week to honor our military students, April 18-22 (View Spirit Week Flyer Here).

She is an invaluable resource to our school and full community.

Health and Safety Measures Update

While the Virginia Department of Health shifted the expectation for contact tracing in schools to only on outbreaks, the CDC continues to indicate that contact tracing, in combination with testing, wearing a well-fitting mask, and quarantine and isolation, are effective strategies to identify people with  COVID-19 (cases) and to reduce transmission.

FCPS has and continues to implement CDC recommendations, to the greatest extent practicable, to prevent or reduce the spread of COVID-19 in schools and to foster the continuation of in-person learning for students and staff. As a result, FCPS will continue contact tracing until further notice.

The following changes became effective 5:00 p.m. Friday, February 4:

  • FCPS Pause (Close Contact) Letter includes quarantine guidance and replaces the FCHD quarantine email to families
  • FCPS Student Quarantine Exemption and Attestation Form replaces the FCHD Vaccine Verification Survey (Will be embedded in the FCPS Pause Letter and available on the FCPS webpage, physical copies will be available if needed)

Monitoring COVID-19 cases is critical to maintaining a safe in-person learning environment for all students. Please continue to let us know if your child has tested positive for COVID-19 or may be a close contact. We will work with you through the process to return your child to the classroom as quickly as possible.

Fourth Grade Strings Debut

The week of February 21st (Ms. Skeen’s class will record on Monday February 28th), all 4th Grade Strings students will record a musical selection during their Strings class time. These recordings will be put together in a recording (link to be shared with parents), that will be shown at the end of the day the week of March 7. Concert dress for the recording will be Kings Glen spirit wear if your child has, or green or white tops.

Parents of 4th Grade Strings Students – your assistance is greatly appreciated in making sure your child has their materials the week of February 21st. Dr. Keenan thanks you in advance!  

Submit COVID Vaccination Status

You may wish to voluntarily share your child’s COVID-19 vaccination information with Kings Glen Elementary School. However, we do not require your child’s vaccination information and no school employee will ask for your child’s vaccination status.

If you would like to provide us with your child’s vaccination status, please bring your child’s COVID-19 vaccination card or a photocopy of the card to the front office. COVID-19 vaccination documentation contains Protected Health Information and should not be emailed.

Pop Tabs!

Kings Glen is collecting pop tabs again this year to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Northern Virginia. Collect pop tabs from aluminum cans (ex. soda, fizzy water, soup cans) and turn them into the bin by Mrs. Rode’s room or in your classroom. Even though one pop tab is not worth much, they can add up quickly! By “pulling” together we can help support families with sick or injured children.

Kings Glen just donated over 60 pounds of pop tabs that were collected the past two years. Our challenge this year is to collect at least 50 pounds!

Kings Glen Wants Your Plastic Bags!

Please continue sending in plastic bags for our Trex recycling program!  We are over half way to meeting our 500-pound goal and getting a Trex bench. Our bench will be a “Buddy Bench.” What is a Buddy Bench? It’s a place for a child to go if they feel lonely.  When other kids see someone on the bench, they know that child needs a friend!  All About Plastic Recycling | NexTrex
