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:

  1. Updating bell schedules and bus schedules

  2. Expanding outdoor learning capacity (Watch video about Centreville ES outdoor learning.)

  3. Expanding lunch capacity

  4. Developing master schedules for five day a week of in-person instruction

  5. Reinstating School Age Child Care (SACC) to its before and after school model

  6. Monitoring health and vaccine updates

  7. Exploring COVID-19 screening and diagnostic testing pilots.
