According to the Center for Disease Control, students who are bullied are more likely to experience low self-esteem and isolation, perform poorly in school, have few friends in school, have a negative view of school, experience physical symptoms (such as headaches, stomachaches, or problems sleeping), and to experience mental health issues (such as depression, suicidal thoughts, and anxiety).

How you can stomp out bullying:
  1. Talk to your child about it.
  2. Support and empower your child.
  3. Learn your rights. For more information on how to stop bullying click here. (Center for Disease Control, Bullying Surveillance Among Youths, 2014

We hope that everyone is just as excited as we are for Monday and the first day of the 2019-2020 school year!!! We listed a few last minute reminders below. See you Monday!

Sharon, Willisa and Theresa

 

STUDENT CLASS ASSIGNMENTS

If you were not able to make it to the Open House, you can find your child’s class assignment by checking your SIS Parent Account (Parent Vue). You can register or find additional information at www.fcps.edu/resources/technology/student-information-system-sis-fcps/sis-parent-account-overview Please understand that the staff has put a lot of thought into which students were placed together.

 

ARRIVAL and DISMISSAL

We will see everyone beginning at 8:25am Monday morning but remember that your child will be late if he or she arrives after 8:45am. We know that the first day of school is exciting for everyone and we are aware that parents may want to come to school and you are welcome. However, we ask that you allow your child to come to school the same way he or she will normally go home. If your child will normally be riding the bus to and from school, allow him or her to do so the first day of school. This will make it less confusing for your child and assist the teacher in getting him or her to the right location or bus at dismissal. We encourage you to meet your child(ren) at the school so we will open the blacktop so there will be plenty of spaces for you to park.

For the safety of our children, parents may not drop off children in the side parking lot or on the sidewalk on Old Mt. Vernon Road. These are high traffic areas and bring potential risks that must be avoided. Anyone attempting to use these areas will be stopped by staff members.

  • BUS - Prior to school starting, you will receive a letter with your child’s bus number, stop location and pick up time. During the first week of school, children should arrive at their assigned bus stop a few minutes early until the bus driver establishes a regular routine. It is very important that each student rides his or her ASSIGNED bus.  If you feel you have a valid reason for your child to ride a different bus you must submit an exception to ride form. Children are not allowed to ride a different bus until permission has been received by the Transportation Office. Please be aware that we will be sending children home on the bus listed on the Post Card. If you do have concerns you can feel free to contact the Transportation Office at 703-446-2150. We also need to remind you that FECEP and Kindergarten students are not allowed to walk home by themselves or with a sibling attending Woodley Hills. It is FCPS policy for our youngest students must be met by an adult or a responsible teenager in at least 7th grade.

  • KISS and RIDE – For parents who are transporting their child(ren) to school, staff members will greet students at the “Kiss and Ride” door starting at 8:20 a.m.; the doors will close at 8:45 a.m. and at that time you will need to take your child to the main office. The students should be seated in the passenger side of the car so that children are exiting the car onto the side walk.   Please DO NOT attempt to park your car and walk up to the “Kiss and Ride” door because staff members will not release your child.
  • WALKERS – If your child is assigned to a bus, please do not allow him or her to walk before checking with the office. Walkers should enter and exit only from the front of the building and they are expected to walk to and from school in pairs or groups whenever possible. Please make sure you have established and practiced a safe walking route with your child in our community before allowing your child to walk to and from school. We also encourage parents to have children check-in when they arrive home and have a plan just in case the child is unable to get in the house so that he or she is not waiting outside alone.
  • BIKE RIDERS – Students who live within the designated walking area are allowed to ride their bikes to and from school. If you decide to allow your child to ride a bike, please review a safe bike route, ensure they wear a helmet, and know how to lock their bike on a bike rack. Our bike rack is located at the side of school near the tennis courts. Please know that the school is not responsible for bikes and any other equipment. Check out this resource for more information on bike safety: https://www.shapeamerica.org//publications/resources/teachingtools/qualitype/upload/bikeology-parent-guide.pdf

 

BREAKFAST and LUNCH

Starting the first day of school, all students will receive free breakfast and lunch. We will continue to have the salad bar for our students and the entrée is the same menu at CEP schools and non-CEP schools; a la carte items are still offered, but are not free. Examples of a la carte items are popcorn, cookies, water, and extra purchases of items which are part of the meal.

There will not be a formal presentation so you may drop in anytime between 11:00am and 12:00pm. Please know that we will not be opening the doors until 11:00 am so there is no need to arrive too early. You do not need to gather near the main doors because ALL doors will be opened and staff will be nearby to assist. Feel free to park on the blacktop but be sure not to block any cars.

Our Kindergarten Welcome to School and Orientation is at a separate time for our 1st through 6th grade Open House. We will welcome our new kindergarten students on Friday, August 23 from 12:30am to 1:30pm. To have an easier time parking and entering the building, please try to arrive no early than 12:15pm.

ATTENDANCE

In order for our students to get the most out of their education they must be in school on time and here every day. The Commonwealth of Virginia has implemented mandatory school attendance laws that we are required to strictly enforce. According to the new laws, students should not miss more than five days during the school year whether it is considered excused or unexcused. The law is designed to ensure our children receive a quality education and to hold parents accountable for students who do not attend school regularly and on time. This is not an issue for our school but we must remind you to be thoughtful of when you allow your child to stay home. If your child must be absent from school, you should always inform the school. The attendance line is 703-799-2020.

 

BREAKFAST and LUNCH

Woodley Hills ES is eligible for the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) meal program again this year which provides free breakfast and lunch for every child attending. However, it is still important for families who may be eligible for free and reduced priced meals to apply. There are several advantages if your child is found eligible. The approval letter allows your child and your family to be eligible for discounts on computers, internet service, scholarships for sports teams, classes and so much more. In addition, by applying you will help the school increase the possibility of receiving free lunch for all students again next year. Pre-printed applications were sent to homes the beginning of August. You may also renew or apply online at https://www.myschoolapps.com. Translated applications are available on the food service website https://www.fcps.edu/node/31049. If you need any assistance in filling out the necessary forms, please call 703-799-2000 and ask to speak to one of our parent liaisons.

We will continue to have the salad bar for our students and the entrée is the same menu at CEP schools and non-CEP schools; a la la carte items are still offered, but are not free. Examples of a la carte items are popcorn, cookies, water, and extra purchases of items which are part of the meal.
