Dear Panther Families,
It is hard to believe that today was the last day of the 2nd quarter and also the last day of the semester. As we reflect on the first semester, we wanted to thank all of our families for their support of our staff and students. We are so grateful for our hardworking staff, awesome students and fantastic families. We look forward to an amazing second half of the school year!
We hope you have a fabulous weekend!
Ms. Andujar and Ms. Walker

When FCPS cancels or delays the opening of school due to inclement weather or other emergencies, staff, students, and parents are notified in multiple ways as soon as the decision is made.
FCPS' official Twitter account, @fcpsnews (with the blue check mark), is where you'll first see closing or delay announcements. That's because we've found Twitter to be the fastest, most effective method of disseminating news. Additional communication channels used to announce a delayed opening or closure include FCPS’ public website, email, text, Facebook, local television and radio stations, and Channel 21. Subscribers to the Delayed Openings and School Closings email on News You Choose will also be notified.
Please keep in mind that there may be a delay from the time messages are transmitted to them being received by users. More than 588,000 emails and texts are being transmitted during every weather closure or delay. However, FCPS has no control over how long it takes cell and internet service providers to distribute emails and texts to customers.
Please view FCPS' Weather Cancellation Procedures page for more information on weather closings and delays.Ways to Stay Informed
