On switching to a virtual start this Fall, we’re all in this together and will help each other through it

In light of the revised FCPS plan announced on July 21 for all students to begin the school year virtually, we hope you and your families are adjusting as best as you can to this change.
 
Obviously things are quite a bit different now than they were on July 15 when we submitted enrollment choices for our children. Although we are facing many uncertainties this coming school year that will be tied to health conditions in our region and state, we want you to know the VES PTA officers will do all that we can to help you and your families navigate these unknowns. We saw time and again this spring that unexpected challenges brought out the best in our VES community. At the end of the day no matter how bewildering the world may be, we can and should take comfort in the fact that the VES community is a kind and generous one full of thoughtful and creative students, parents, teachers, and staff. We are all in this together and we’ll help each other through it. See our Upcoming Events and Important News page for ways we plan to help students and families this summer and fall.
 
FCPS updates its FAQ for students and families daily and is continuing to provide food resources during the closure. Find more information at https://www.fcps.edu/
 
Please feel free to email us with thoughts, ideas, and questions. We may not have the answers but we will do our best to help find them for you. Please stay healthy and safe!
 
Kind regards,
