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.
