Fox Family Focus

Week of December 12, 2021

Greetings Fox Families!

This is Anita Roane, your principal with this week’s announcements and reminders.


This is the week for our Penguin Holiday Shop! As you have been hearing students will be shopping during their STEAM class so don't forget to let them bring in the money they’ve saved to buy surprise gifts for their loved ones.


Students are able to send in photos of themselves participating in the spirit week activities. Email your student’s name, school, and festive photos to holidays@lcps.k12.va.us for the chance to win a secret prize.


Parents, I appreciate your cooperation with the early pickup procedures last week. It was much better. I ask that as we enter into this last week before the winter vacation that we continue to remember our guidelines for changes in afternoon dismissal. All changes in afternoon dismissal must be made by 12 noon. Students will no longer be called to the front office without prior notification before noon. I ask that you remember this and please plan accordingly because after 2:30 you will be directed to the pickup line. Students should only be getting picked up early for scheduled appointments or emergencies. After 2:30 your student will not be dismissed from the front office, all pickups will be from the pickup line. Again, our goal is for everyone to be respectful and use the parent pickup line to receive their students at the end of the day and to have our students get the maximum instructional time provided by their teachers by allowing them to remain in the classroom until dismissal. Thank you again for your cooperation with this matter.


This is our last week before the winter vacation I hope that everyone has a wonderful break and enjoys time well spent with their family and friends.
