Fall 2021 Planning

Fairfax County Public Schools believes that in-person learning is best for students. For the 2021-22 school year, we are welcoming all students back to school buildings for five days a week of instruction.

We are planning now for a successful transition in the fall.

Planning Ahead to Return Strong 

FCPS is preparing for a smooth transition to five days in the fall, while following health and safety guidelines, with the following actions: 

  • Updating bell schedules and bus schedules
  • Expanding outdoor learning capacity (Watch video about Centreville ES outdoor learning.)
  • Expanding lunch capacity
  • Developing master schedules for five day a week of in-person instruction
  • Reinstating School Age Child Care (SACC) to its before and after school model
  • Monitoring health and vaccine updates
  • Exploring COVID-19 screening and diagnostic testing pilots.
