FCCPS Reopening Plan

On Monday, June 15th, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam released his " Phased Guidance for Virginia Schools."  The document is "intended to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission in public and private Pre k-12 school settings while supporting the resumption of peer-to-peer learning and providing crucial support for parents and guardians returning to work."

This page will act as the FCCPS clearinghouse of information and resources regarding our work toward reopening our schools.

Superintendent Peter Noonan has announced that beginning on Friday, June 19th, the George Mason High School track will reopen to the public, however, the athletic field will remain closed. In addition, the playgrounds at Mount Daniel and Thomas Jefferson Elementary Schools also will reopen on Friday along with the City of Falls Church Parks. 

We strongly encourage users to continue to practice social distancing, hand sanitizing, and other methods of protecting yourself so we can continue to 'Fatten the Curve.'
