2014-2015 Start Times and Early Dismissal Schedules Print E-mail
Thursday, 12 June 2014 07:15

Beginning this fall, the school day will begin later for FCCPS.  The move came at the request of School Affiliate Organizations, including PTAs, concerned with Mary Ellen Henderson's current 7:30 a.m. start time.  Following a month long public survey gauging interest, and internal and external efficiency studies, the Board approved changing the start times at the June 10th meeting.

Beginning this Fall:
Preschool - 8:00 a.m. - 1:45 p.m.
George Mason - 8:00 a.m. - 2:55 p.m.
Mary Ellen Henderson - 8:10 a.m. - 3:20 p.m.
Mt. Daniel / Thomas Jefferson - 8:45 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.

On June 11th, the schedule of early dismissal days was published.  At TJ and MD, we will continue having full day Wednesdays when the weekend is extended to a Friday or Monday.  The following is a list of early release days for the 2014-2015 school year:

 TJ students, teachers, and parents enjoyed an adventurous "World of Wonder" field day extravaganza. Students traveled through 16 stations such as the German Autobahn Race, Australian Kangaroo Hop, Italian Pasta Pull, Victoria Falls, and Volcano Country. Students had a blast, got soaked, and emerged better team members and friends. Thanks to all who made it happen!
