Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is partnering with families to ensure we keep students and staff safe and healthy as we return to school buildings for learning. Working together, we will follow recommended health guidance that focuses on student health, safety, and emotional well-being.
📷Yearbook Photo submission 📷
The 2020-21 school year has and will always be a year like no other. To help us capture and celebrate these moments for all time, please consider submitting a candid photo for our HMS yearbook! It can be a photo of your family or student doing fun activities, studying, social distancing, or even your students new work space! Whatever photo you'd like to submit we'd love to see them!
Parent Technology Help Desk
To support families who are working with their children during distance learning, Fairfax County Public Schools now has a Parent Technology Help Desk. The number is 1-833-921-3277 (833-921-FCPS). It will be answered by staff 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. If the help desk is unable to solve the issue on the phone with the parent or guardian, they will enter a ticket on the parent’s behalf and the request for help will be transferred to the appropriate FCPS team.
Report safety issues online or by text message using the Safety Tipline. You may choose to identify yourself or remain anonymous.
