All parents/caregivers of in-person students will be sent letters that contain a Health Screening Commitment Form prior to their return to school date. This form must be completed before students re-enter school buildings. This document confirms that a parent, caregiver, or guardian will complete a daily health screening and will keep students home when they are ill.
The Health Commitment form can be submitted electronically through ParentVUE (PVUE) (preferred) or via hard copy. If you have not yet created a SIS ParentVUE account, please contact Katie Simmons at email@example.com for an activation code. PDFs of the form and all available translations can also be found online here: https://www.fcps.edu/return-school/student-health-and-safety-guidance-documentCurrent 5th and 6th Grade Patrols
