Digital Resources at Fairfax Academy - Parental Consent Required
Some of the digital resources your child may use this year require parental consent.
Please review this information and the list of software, apps, etc., and to provide consent for your student.
Unvaccinated Athletes Register for COVID testing
All high school student-athletes participating in FCPS athletic programming who are not fully vaccinated between the ages of 12-15 or between the ages of 16-18 with a medical or religious exemption will be required to submit negative COVID-19 test results to the Director of Student Activities at the school on a weekly basis in order to participate in sports for school year 2021-2022.
Have a Concern You Want to Share with FCPS?
The Office of the Ombudsman provides an independent, confidential resource for students, families, community members, and employees who are seeking informal help to answer questions, resolve concerns, and voice complaints regarding FCPS matters. Contact them here.
Report safety issues online or by text message using the Safety Tipline. You may choose to identify yourself or remain anonymous.
Anticipated Bus Delays
Due to the bus driver shortage, we will be increasing “double back” bus runs, meaning a bus is required to run two scheduled routes back to back that would normally have been covered by two separate buses. These “double backs” may impact delivery time to schools or bus stops and may have a domino effect, affecting after-school drop-off times.
Parent Technology Help Desk
The Parent Technology Help Desk will continue to support parents and students. The number is 1-833-921-3277 (833-921-FCPS). It will be answered by staff from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
