If your child is ill, please don’t send them to school. If they test positive for COVID-19, please call the school at 540-310-0029 and keep them at home. If your child is waiting for test results, please keep them home as well. Please, call the school if someone in your home has tested positive for COVID or if your child has been exposed and keep them at home until you speak with our team.

If your child has to stay home due to quarantine or isolation, please call us. We will be sure your child has work from school, their laptop/ipad, and that they are enrolled in our virtual learning experience “Second Shift Teaching”. A second shift teacher will zoom with your student after-school hours. Let your child’s teacher know if you need more information on Second Shift, if your child must stay home due to COVID-19.

Please, see our divisions protocols here (and on the website)
