Happy Friday CES Community,

It was another positive week at CES!  We are so proud of the resilience our students display each week.

As we progress through this year and continue to coexist with the COVID virus, we want to share some information regarding the sickness in school. In collaboration with the Fairfax County Health Department (FCHD), FCPS has updated COVID guidelines and developed a new document to be used in place of the Sick Student Notification & Permission to Return to School Form.

Here are some points:

  • Students demonstrating any of the following symptoms will be sent home from school:   Fever (100.4 or greater) - Chills – Cough – Shortness of breath – Loss of taste/smell – Sore throat – Fatigue – Muscle aches – Runny Nose/Congestion – Stomachache – Diarrhea – Nausea/Vomiting – Headaches. 
  • Students who are  sent home from the Care Room will now receive the FCPS GUIDANCE FOR STUDENTS SENT HOME FROM THE CARE ROOM WITH ILLNESS SYMPTOMS  The upper portion of the form will be completed to  identify the new symptoms your student has developed. This form is accessible for parents on the Health and Safety Guidance document.
  • The remaining portion of the form provides guidance to the parent/guardian on how and when the student may return to in-person learning.
  • Parents are expected to pick up their child within one hour of notification.
  • Parents are to check into the front office.
  • For students with chronic symptoms similar to COVID-like symptoms/illness, please complete and regularly update the Health Information Form (HIF) and submit to school.

Please note that students sent home from the Care Room may return to school when ALL of the following are met:

  1. The student is fever-free without fever-reducing medication for at least 24 hours
  2. The student’s symptoms are improving
  3. One of the following:
    1. Proof of a COVID-19 Test
    2. Home Antigen (picture of negative test result and note from parent)
    3. Complete and provide the school with the FCPS COVID-19 Negative Home Antigen Test Parent-Guardian Attestation Form
    4. PCR (test result from lab or physician)
    5. Rapid Antigen (test result from lab or physician)
    6. Physician’s note from a healthcare provider following a clinical evaluation stating the cause of symptoms is not COVID-19 and clearing the student to return to school.

 

Have a POSITIVE Weekend!

For each school-aged child in your household, please complete, sign, date, and return the survey to your child's school. If sections 1 and 2 of the survey do not apply to you, just check the boxes in Section 3. All forms must be signed, dated, and returned by November 5. All results are CONFIDENTIAL.

Calling all parents and family members!  We are so excited to safely bring back our in-person Scholastic Book Fair to CES.  The joy and enthusiasm of students finding new books to read can't be beat, and it is also a great way to fundraise in order to provide fun opportunities and events for our students!  We'd love for you to come and help out at the Book Fair in any way possible.  Due to Covid, we will need to adhere to safety precautions, which include the following:  Volunteers must be fully vaccinated and show proof of this, volunteers must wear a mask for the duration of their time inside the school building, and no younger children or siblings will be allowed to join parents during the volunteer time.  If you are able, please sign up for the times that work best for you.  When you arrive at the school please sign in at the office, making sure you bring your proof of vaccination and your driver's license.  If you have any questions,  please contact Aubrey Thorne, CES Librarian, at adthorne@fcps.edu.  Thanks in advance for helping us run a successful Book Fair for CES - we wouldn’t be able to do this without our wonderful volunteers!   Volunteer Sign-up Link:  https://volunteersignup.org/9MC84

Happy Friday CES Community,

We have had a wonderful week filled with beautiful fall weather. This gives us plenty of opportunities to get outdoors for some outdoor learning. Last Friday, we held our First Green Hour of Power session. This is a positive time to head outside with the students to enhance our understanding around Educating for Sustainability and the impact it has on the CES community/campus. The focus is to empower all students so that each leaves a visual positive mark on CES. Please make sure to ask your students about what they are working on. Green Hour of Power will happen once a month for the entire school year.

Thank you to those who attended the Principals' Coffee on Tuesday. As new information becomes available, we will be holding additional coffees to disperse new content. As always, if you have specific questions, please feel free to contact the CES Administration.

Parent/Guardian - Teacher Conferences will begin in about a month. These conferences allow the home and school to spend uninterrupted time together focused on ensuring the students are progressing and learning to their full potential. Please plan on attending these beneficial collaborative sessions. Most of the conferences will be offered virtually this year. If you would like to have an interpreter present, please let your student's teacher know as soon as possible. We look forward to our future engagement and collaboration!

Have a POSITIVE Weekend!

Students Rights & Responsibilities (SR&R)

We are extremely happy to have your child in our school with us this year! FCPS’ updated Student Rights & Responsibility booklet is now available online and in the ParentVue section of the Student Information System (SIS). The SR&R booklet explains expectations for student behavior, and adult responses to enhance school safety and to create a fair, equitable, and supportive school environment. Each year, we ask parents to review, sign, and return the SR&R to their child’s school. In ParentVue, you may now download and digitally sign the SR&R. Every parent/guardian with a ParentVUE account will see the SR&R upon login to ParentVUE until the SR&R acknowledgement has been completed.

Once you log on, you will see the following message:

Your name in the digital signature box must match the parent/guardian’s first and last name in SIS exactly before the signature will be accepted. Please take a moment to log into ParentVue in your child’s SIS account to access the SR&R. Signatures are due by October 29, 2021. Please contact us if you are having difficulty accessing the booklet.

ADVANCED ACADEMIC PROGRAMS (AAP) ELEMENTARY CONTINUUM OF SERVICES
  • Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is committed to challenging all students through talent development and differentiated instruction to meet the needs of advanced learners.
  • FCPS offers a continuum of advanced academic services for all students in Grades K-12. The continuum of services approach allows for a focus on matching services rather than labeling students. Students have:
    • Multiple entry points for deeper learning opportunities in specific areas of need as they develop.
    • A cluster group of students with similar academic needs to continue growing in their learning.
  • Teachers, administrators, and Advanced Academic Resource Teachers (AARTs) work together to provide the following levels of service at the elementary level:
Tier 1 Access to AAP Curriculum and Strategies, Grades K-6 (Level I)
  • All students have opportunities to think critically, reason, and problem-solve.
    • All teachers use critical and creative thinking strategies in their lessons
    • Classroom teachers provide opportunities using materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework a minimum of once per quarter.
  • Because Level I services are for all FCPS students, there is not a screening process.
Differentiated Lessons in Areas of Academic Strength, Grades K-6 (Level II)
  • Some students are strong in one or more subject areas. Classroom teachers may adjust instruction for students in these areas by:
    • Providing different assignments and resources in those subjects
    • Grouping students by their strengths, interests, and readiness
    • Classroom teachers provide additional challenges using materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework.
  • Level II Services are re-evaluated each year.
Part-Time Advanced Academic Programs, Grades 3-6 (Level III)
  • Some students have advanced academic abilities in multiple subject areas. They need part-time AAP services.
    • Students work with students that have similar academic needs through weekly pull-out classes or weekly co-taught lessons with the AART and classroom teacher.
    • Teachers provide frequent opportunities to use materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework in Language Arts, science, social studies, and/or mathematics.
  • Level III services continue through Grade 6. Students do not need to be evaluated each year.
Full-Time Advanced Academic Programs, Grades 3-8 (Level IV)
  • Some advanced learners need a full-time advanced academic program with differentiated instruction in all four core content areas (Language Arts, mathematics, social studies, and science).
  • Students eligible for full-time AAP services are cluster grouped on a full-time basis and receive:
    • Full-time use of materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework in Language Arts, science, and social studies curriculum, and
    • Mathematics curriculum with depth and complexity that is at least one year above grade level.
  • Level IV services continue through Grade 8. Students do not need to be evaluated each year.
Screening for Levels II-IV
  • Multiple criteria are reviewed holistically to determine eligibility for all FCPS advanced academic services. Committees consider student work from opportunities with AAP lessons, examples of student reasoning or gifted behaviors from class discussions and activities, progress reports, achievement and ability scores, and parent input. Committees consider whether students have access to a group of students with similar academic needs to support academic conversations and growth in the classroom.
  • Eligibility decisions for Level II and Level III services are made by a committee at the local school
  • Screening for Level II and Level III services is ongoing throughout the school year.
  • Eligibility decisions for full-time Level IV services are made by the countywide central selection committee.
  • Screening for Level IV services occurs during specific screening cycles:
    • Fall screening is available for students who are new to FCPS since January.
      • Fall referrals are due October 7, 2021
    • Spring screening is available for any Grade 2-7 FCPS-enrolled student
      • The referral window is from the first day of school - December 15.
    • Referral forms for Levels II-IV are found at https://www.fcps.edu/node/38893.
    • For more information, please visit the AAP website at: https://www.fcps.edu/registration/advanced-academics-identification-and-placement/current-fcps-students.
Ability Testing
  • FCPS uses ability testing as one part of the holistic screening process for Levels II-IV services. Test scores are not weighted or prioritized in the holistic screening process.
    • All students in Grade 1 take the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT).
    • All students in Grade 2 take the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT).
    • NNAT and/or CogAT may be administered to students in Grades 3-6 who do not have an ability test score during the regularly scheduled testing windows.
  • Parents or guardians may request a one-time retest in grades 3-6 during the fall testing windows. Please contact the school testing coordinator Rachel Forte at rmforte@fcps.edu, no later than September 24 to request the CogAT or October 15 for the NNAT.
  • Please do not wait for test scores before submitting a referral for your student in Grades 2-7 as there will be no referrals for Level IV screening accepted past the deadline.
Elementary Parent Information Meeting
  • A parent information meeting will be held virtually during a Principal’s Coffee this fall. The AART will provide information about levels of service and examples at Centreville Elementary and explain the screening processes and answer any questions AAP services. Please keep an eye on the Principal’s Newsletter for date!
Young Scholars
  • FCPS developed the Young Scholars Model to help identify students from historically underrepresented populations for AAP services. The model provides additional opportunity to nurture talent and build confidence so that students can meet their potential.
Twice-Exceptional (2e)
  • Some gifted students also have learning disabilities. These twice-exceptional, or “2e” students need strengths-based instruction. Their learning challenges also must be supported. FCPS has created a 2e handbook to help schools and families understand how to identify and serve 2e students. You can find these resources by going to www.fcps.edu and searching “2e.”
Middle and High School AAP
  • Additional information about middle and high school services may be found on the Advanced Academic Programs web page. https://www.fcps.edu/academics/academic-overview/advanced-academic-programs

Happy Friday CES Community,

CES was very fortunate today to have several special guests visit us. Mrs. Northam (First Lady of Virginia), Senator Kaine, Delegate Helmer, and Kathy Smith spent the afternoon touring and talking with students. It was wonderful to show off all of the amazing students of CES! Our guests were able to witness first hand the efforts, collaboration, and dedication the students and staff exhibit daily.

Twenty years ago following 9/11 the 1st grade students and staff of CES created a heart filled flag (pictured to the right) and brought it to New York City were it hung near Ground Zero. Today we remember the tragic events of 9/11 by raising the Freedom Flag and conducting a special moment of silence. 

Tomorrow, Saturday, September 11th is a National Day of Service and Remembrance. The idea behind this is to transform the anniversary of 9/11 from a day of tragedy into a day of doing good, by honoring the victims and those who rose in service by keeping alive the spirit of unity and service that arose in the immediate aftermath on that day. CES will be holding a school clean-up from 9am – 12pm and many other local organizations will do the same. If you do not have a planned activity, we would love to have you join us at CES.

Have a POSITIVE Weekend!

Happy Friday CES Community,

We had a positive second week of school here at CES! The CVHS Marching Band shared their talents with us on Tuesday and we successfully completed two more of our safety drills (fire and lockdown). Our amazing students continue to do a wonderful job adhering to the new safety guidelines. We have developed a foundation for a successful year!

Our dismissal procedures continue to improve. We have been wrapping up dismissal around 4:20pm each day. Thank you to those who have moved their student/s to the bus or walking. If you continue to use Kiss & Ride, please have your student/s get in and out of the car on the passenger side. This is very important for the safety of everyone.  

Reminder that there is no school on Friday 9/3 & Monday 9/6. We hope you are able to take time this long weekend celebrate the beginning of a successful school year with your student/s.

Have a wonderful long weekend!

Happy Friday CES Community,

It has been an amazing week connecting and reconnecting with our CES Students! Our Eagles are doing a wonderful job learning and following the new safety protocols put in place this year. This is the key to allowing us to stay in-person learning together. Please reinforce with your student/s at home the importance of proper mask wearing while at school. 

We hope to see many of you tonight at the PTA Welcome Back Picnic at 5:30pm on the blacktop. This is a great time to connect with other community members as well as some of the CES Staff. Speaking of PTA, please consider joining/supporting the CES PTA. Their partnership and backing truly are vital to the success of the school. 

The dismissal process is improving each day, thank you for your flexibility and patience. Our Kiss-n-Ride line continues to be abnormally long. If your student can walk or ride the bus, please consider these options to allow for less car traffic. 

As shared earlier today, CES is in need of support for the café during lunch time (10:30am - 1:30pm).  If you or someone you know is interested in getting paid to support the school, please contact Kathy Culleiton in the front office for more information.

 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Good Afternoon CES,

We are very excited to welcome our CES Eagles back into the building on Monday! The staff has been working diligently this week to ensure the building is ready for your students. Safety is our number one concern as we start this year, so there may be a few changes in procedures and routines. Thank you in advance for your support and patience as we work through some of these changes.

We loved engaging with our community this week through the Welcome Walk and Back-to-School Night/Supply Drop-off. It was amazing to see so many of you at these events. We truly missed these interactions and are grateful we were able to reinstate them. Next week we have two more opportunities for the community. On Monday, we will have the PTA Boo Hoo Woo Hoo Breakfast at 9:15am on the back patio (please walk around the outside of the building). Please stop by to connect with other CES families and celebrate the first day of school. On Friday, we have our PTA Welcome Back Picnic at 5:30pm on the Blacktop. Join us to celebrate the completion of the first week of school. 

The doors will open at 9:00am on Monday for the first day of school. We will be posting pictures from the day on Twitter (@centrevillees1). If you have any questions please contact the main office at 703-502-3500. Enjoy the last weekend of summer and we will be ready Monday to start the 2021-2022 school year!

Emergency Care Forms and Health Information Forms

FCPS provides weCare@school enabling parents to manage their emergency medical and contact information online. Each year we ask for your review and update of your student’s Emergency Care Form and Health Information form. This year we are going to collect this information digitally using the weCare system.

WeCare is available through your SIS ParentVue account. Please go into your WeCare account and review your student’s emergency care and health information. Any updates can be made online.  Please click submit even if no changes are made. This is very important.

More information and how to update information can be found here.

We are excited to share that students, families, and teachers throughout FCPS and in our school community will use Schoology (pronounced /SKOO-luh-jee/) as our learning management system for the 2021-2022 school year!

Greetings From Your School Health Room!

Our goal is to ensure that your student enjoys a healthful, safe school year.  Please read the following information carefully and, if you have any questions, feel free to call either your Health Room at 703-502-3510 or the school Public Health Nurse, Kathleen Boyd, RN, BSN at koboyd@fcps.edu.

Your school health room services include:

  1. Care of sick and injured students according to school guidelines.
  2. Hearing and vision screening (grades K, 3, and new to Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), and those students referred by teachers and parents).
  3. Administration of care for students with identified problems or conditions during the school day.
  4. Coordination of care for students with identified problems or conditions during the school day.

How can you help your school health room provide the best possible care?

  • Complete and return the Health Information Form, listing specific health condition(s) that may impact your child’s school day.  A medical alert list is developed using this information to inform each child’s teacher(s) of health issues.   The health room must receive a new form each school year.  If a new form is not received for the current school year, the health room will presume the health condition(s) noted previously no longer apply and your child will be removed from the medical alert list.
  • Complete and return the Emergency Care Information Form, listing as emergency contacts someone who can be reached in a timely manner and can pick up your child should he/she become sick or injured at school.  Notify the school office and the health room of any changes to the information provided on this form. Generally, a student may remain in the health room for 15 minutes.  After that, if he or she is still feeling ill, parents will be called to take the student home.
  • Keep sick children home.  It is difficult for students to concentrate or do school work when not feeling well.
  • Children who have fevers (temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher), vomiting, or diarrhea are not able to stay in school.  Children are required to stay home for 24 hours after these conditions resolve without (fever reducing) medication.

IF MEDICATION IS TO BE ADMINISTERED AT SCHOOL, specific guidelines need to be followed in accordance with the school medication policy.  A guideline summary is included on the back of this letter.  Please read it thoroughly and keep it in a convenient location for referral if needed.  Medication forms are available in the school health room or online https://www.fcps.edu/index.php/resources/student-safety-and-wellness/school-health-services at the bottom of the page.

Thank you for your cooperation and assistance in helping to make this a safe and healthy school year for all FCPS students.

  PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY

STUDENTS MAY NOT TAKE MEDICATION AT SCHOOL UNLESS FCPS GUIDELINES ARE FOLLOWED:

  • Parent or guardian may authorize administration of the following medications at school by completing, signing, and dating Parts l & ll of AUTHORIZATION FOR MEDICATION:
    • Over-the-counter (OTC) medication may be given as-needed throughout the school year ONLY as a pain reliever for headaches, muscle aches, orthodontic pain, or menstrual cramps.
    • OTC medication for any other conditions may be given up to 10 consecutive school days.
    • Antibiotics and anti-virals
  • A physician must complete, sign, and date the order on Part ll of the medication form for all medications other than the situations above. Part l of the authorization form must be completed and signed by the parent or guardian. The AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF INHALER form requires parent and student signatures on Part ll as well as the physician signature.
  • Written medication orders on Part ll of the medication form must include:
  • Diagnosis
  • Name of medication – no abbreviations
  • Dosage
  • Time medication is to be taken
  • Sequence of medication when more than one is prescribed
  • The exact condition or symptom if given on an as needed basis
  • Interval between dosages – repeat as necessary is not acceptable
  • Duration of medication order or effective dates
  • Medication label MUST match written order:
  • All prescribed medication, including physician samples, must be in a container labeled and dated by a pharmacist or physician with name of student, name of medication, dosage, and time to be taken.
  • All OTC medication must be in the original container and labeled by parent or guardian with name of student, dosage, and time to be taken.
  •  The first dose of any new medication must be given at home.
  •  The parent or guardian must transport medication to and from school. With parental permission, high school students may transport OTC medications to and from the school health room.
  • Each time there is a change in the dosage or time, a new authorization form is required. The new medication order and container label must match.
  • Students must go to the health room to receive medication. Parents should develop a plan with the student to ensure that he/she goes to the health room at the prescribed time. Medication can only be given one-half hour before or one-half hour after the prescribed time.
  • For as needed medication, parents should inform the health room if the medication was given at home before school hours. This will prevent students from receiving medication too close to an earlier dose.
  • Parent or guardian must collect any unused portion of medication within one week after expiration of the effective date on the order form. Unclaimed medication within that period will be discarded.
  • Medication that has not been picked up by the closing bell on the last day of the school year will be discarded.
