  • Health and Safety Plan Revision

    The FCPS Health and Safety Plan has been revised to reflect the following: School visitors are prohibited from eating lunch with students and/or staff due to the high COVID-19 transmission rates being experienced within the community and the fact that individuals do not wear face coverings while actively eating and drinking. This additional mitigation strategy will assist the school division as it works to continue to be able to offer in-person learning.
