FCPS Nominations for Support Employee of the Year Close March 26


FCPS seeks nominations for the 2021 Support Employee of the Year (by Friday, March 26).

Please see the news release for details:

Spectators at Athletic Contests

FCPS is excited to welcome limited spectators to fall athletic competitions. Admittance to all athletic events is limited to two guests per student-athlete. Please know that some athletic competitions are held off campus, and FCPS will respect and follow all guidelines set forth by those organizations and venues, which may include no spectator policies.

In order to provide the safest environment for all to enjoy the athletic contests, face coverings must be properly worn (fully cover mouth and nose) and social distancing must be practiced at all times when on school grounds, inside and outside, and at all competitions held off FCPS campuses.

Admittance to athletic events will begin 30 minutes prior to the scheduled starting time. Outside food and beverages are prohibited, and concession sales will not be available.

It is FCPS’ hope that everyone will abide by these guidelines and enjoy watching our student-athletes compete in the safest manner possible. Failure to comply with FCPS spectator protocols (including properly wearing face coverings and maintaining social distancing) will result in the suspension of spectator attendance at athletic competitions.

Schools will continue to live stream as many athletic contests as possible.

Reminder: Nominations Open for Distinguished Teacher Award

FCPS seeks nominations for the 2021 Charles E. Tressler Distinguished Teacher Award (by Friday, March 19).
