When visiting the school, please be sure to bring your license with you so that you can check in with our Visitor Management System upon arrival. Always be sure to come to the main entrance (Entrance 1) so that you may be checked in with the front office staff. Thank you for your cooperation!Class Placement School Year 2023-24
While there’s still plenty of action left in 2022-2023, we have already begun planning for the 2032-24 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 complete the following form by Friday, May 26, 2023.
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.

The school health room is reminding parents and guardians that all medication stored in the health room must be picked up by a parent or guardian no later than student dismissal time on the last day of school (June 16, 2023). Medication left in the health room after that time will be destroyed per policy. Mediation cannot be sent home with your student. If your child will be enrolled in a summer program sponsored by FCPS, the existing medication authorization form(s) may be used for the summer program, but you will need to pick-up the medication before student dismissal time on the last day of school and deliver the medication and completed forms to the summer learning site on the first day of the summer program. If you have any questions, please contact the Health Room at 703-239-4010.Need Tech Help?
