Focus on Wellness

As we focus on the social emotional wellness of our students, their physical and psychological health is important too. We are implementing various strategies to support our students and our movement break map is one of them. When students need to get some of the wiggles out, they can go to the map and have individual time to jump, skip, and balance to the finish line.  A minute of movement can increase student’s ability to focus, settle down, and attend to learning.

Best Buddies

Ms. Fishler is heading up our new Silverbrook Buddy program. The Silverbrook Buddy program pairs students together for monthly activities during the school day. This program supports students in forming bonds by participating in activities with older children, and to promote acceptance and friendships. We had over one hundred of our students apply for this program! This overwhelming response is a testament to our Silverbrook caring community!!

Impact Aid Survey

On Wednesday, October 13th your child(ren) will be bringing home the Federal Impact Aid Survey form in their Wednesday folder. Please fill out Section 1, Section 2 OR Section 3, sign, date, and return to your student(s) classroom teacher.  More information regarding Impact Aid can be found here: https://www.fcps.edu/impact

Lost and Found

We still have an abundance of light jackets, sweaters, water bottles and lunch boxes in our lost and found area. Please remind your children to stop by and pick up their items. Also, if you can label items, it would be most helpful in connecting students with their lost things. Thank you!

We are still adhering to safety protocols by wearing face masks. Students should not bring costume face masks to school nor other items that are part of the costume such as swords, etc.

September 29, 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians,

In this week’s FCPS News You Choose message, the plan for supporting students on COVID-19 related absences was shared.  To review the full message, please click on this link. https://www.fcps.edu/news/streamincheckin?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=

In summary, when students are absent due to COVID-19 exposure or illness, students will have access to limited one-way streaming in their classroom.  One-way streaming means students can hear and see the classroom lesson, but not directly interact with the class.  Students may stream for morning meeting and the focus lessons of language arts and math (Schedule is below for specific times by grade level).  Participation in one-way streaming is optional.  Parents of students receiving ESOL and Special education supports will be contacted by their child’s case manager to discuss specific times for those supports.  Students will access streaming through the teacher’s Zoom link via Schoology.  Specific directions on accessing Zoom through Schoology will be attached in your teacher’s weekly email.

Please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher(s) or me if you have questions.

Hold up! Pause before heading to school or work. Do you feel sick? Are you having any symptoms of COVID-19?

If so, please stay home until you are better.

Updated COVID-19 Response Flowchart for Families

When a positive COVID-19 case is reported at Silverbrook a collaborative effort to investigate close contacts and determine the appropriate next steps for affected students begins. To help families know what to expect, the process is outlined on the FCPS website

Why does FCPS Use the 14-day Quarantine Period?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continue to recommend 14 days as the safest length for quarantine to decrease the risk of the spread of COVID-19 to others. (Overview of COVID-19 Quarantine for K-12 Schools | CDC). Based on local conditions and needs, local public health authorities may recommend shorter quarantines (after day 10 without testing, or after day 7 after receiving a negative test), but during this time of high community transmission, the Fairfax County Health Department continues to follow the 14-day recommended quarantine length. The CDC estimates an up to 12% risk of becoming positive for COVID-19 after these shortened quarantine periods. These recommendations may be subject to change based on public health guidance.

FCPS Virtual Mental Health and Wellness Conference

Join us for the Virtual Mental Health and Wellness Conference to learn how to support your child’s well-being. Learn more online.

Clinic Procedures

Please be advised that we are required to follow the current FCPS Covid protocols.  Any students reporting to the clinic with the following symptoms will be sent home (fever/chills, cough, shortness of breath, new loss of taste/smell, sore throat, fatigue, muscle aches, runny nose/congestion, stomach ache, diarrhea, nausea/vomiting, or headache). As a school, we cannot make a diagnosis of Covid.   A visit to your physician may either be recommended or required for your student to return to school.  Please review the Health Questionnaire daily as a guide. It would also be helpful to make your child aware of the procedures.

Seahawk Weekly News - 09/17/2021

Dear Silverbrook Families,

Thank you for attending our BTSN it was nice seeing you virtually. We hope you received timely and pertinent information about your child’s school day, expectations, and a peek at the curriculum. Should you have any other questions or need clarification about the classroom or questions about how your child is doing please reach out to your child’s teacher first. Your teacher has first-hand knowledge of the inner working of the classroom and would love to partner with you.

Parents often ask, “What do you need?” Teachers would be able to provide the best response. Some teachers may ask for games that can be used for indoor recess, while others might need books for their classroom library, or a few more glue sticks. Please reach out to your child’s teacher with this question also. One thing we do need help with is your support in reminding students to put their mask back on immediately after consuming snack and lunch. We have adults here at school to remind, and the reinforcing voice from home will go a long way in supporting us.

We are also having some challenges with fidgets and know these are popular items. It would be helpful if you would limit the number of fidgets your child brings to school (only one please) and we need students to be respectful to teachers when asked to put them away. As you can imagine having more than a few fidgets going in the classroom is a distraction. Teachers will set parameters around the use of fidgets and will also teach and model the appropriate use of the fidgets. Unless your child uses a fidget as an accommodation, the teacher is permitted to direct your child to put it away until the next instructional block if it’s not being used appropriately. We appreciate your support with this.

We appreciate all you do to support us at Silverbrook and we’re looking forward to a great year. As a side note we also hear that we’re getting closer to an approved vaccine for our children. We’re waiting in anticipation!!

Dr. Simpkins and Mr. Thomason

Introducing our new Family Liaison

Mr. Eber Martinez has joined the staff at Silverbrook as our Family Liaison.  He is here to partner with families, direct families to resources needed, and be a listening ear to the needs of our community. He is a graduate of George Mason University and has a passion for soccer and supporting our school. He is on staff M-F from 9:30am -1:30pm. You can reach him via email at esmartinezci@fcps.edu

Student Rights and Responsibilities

School-wide expectations focusing on safety, mutual respect, individual responsibility, and FCPS Student Rights and Responsibilities are necessary in order to ensure a safe place for all students and adults.  A classroom environment that supports student efforts to reach their potential provides the best environment for learning.  Students need to have a clear understanding that the teacher is the authority in the classroom and that no student has a right to interfere with the learning of others.  Fairfax County Public Schools’ Student Rights and Responsibilities clearly state county expectations for student behavior and should be reviewed regularly as appropriate.  You may download a copy of this document at FCPS Student Rights and Responsibilities (SR&R). Please complete the Parent and/or Guardian Signature Sheet and return to school by October 29, 2021.

New Health Department Process to Expedite Communications for Students Awaiting COVID-19 Contact Interviews

The Fairfax County Health Department announced a change in their communication process for students waiting for COVID-19 contact interviews. You may read about these changes on the FCHD website. You may also wish you review the FCHD FAQs for parents of school-aged children. We appreciate the continued partnership between FCPS and FCHD.

StreamIN/CheckIN

StreamIN/CheckIN is FCPS’ solution to provide meaningful instructional support for students who are paused, quarantined, or isolated due to COVID-19. Livestreaming, or StreamIN, is the key element--a process where students have live access to watch and hear what’s happening in the classroom via Zoom or Google Meet. Teachers may choose to record and post lessons instead of livestreaming. Our target launch for StreamIN is September 27.

 

Topic: Boundary Policy Review

Provide Input on Boundary Policy Review at a Virtual Community Meeting

The Fairfax County School Board is in the process of reviewing Policy 8130, Facilities Planning, Local School Boundaries, Program Assignments, and School Closings.

In July 2019, the Board requested the Superintendent hire an outside consultant to work with the Board to identify best practices in boundary policy and engage the community in the discussion.

MGT Consulting Group (MGT), an education consulting firm, will be sharing information about the boundary policy review at three upcoming community meetings and seeking community input in a survey.

You are invited to attend a virtual community meeting on Monday, September 20, from 7 a.m. - 9 p.m. Each meeting will provide the same information and use the same format. No specific boundary changes will be discussed at the meetings. 

Please register online to receive the meeting link and indicate if you need an interpreter.

MGT has sent enrolling parents an email with the survey link to collect input. The community meetings will not be discussing any boundary changes for any schools within FCPS. The information shared will focus on what factors should be considered when making boundary changes. Please take part in the FCPS Boundary Policy Review Community Survey. The survey closes on Friday, September 24.

More information about the Boundary Policy Review is available online.

Lock Down Drill Update

GovDelivery 1 month ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

September 17, 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Every school in Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) has a crisis management and emergency preparedness plan in place. Keeping students and staff safe is a priority. We practice a number of safety drills throughout the school year, including lockdown drills which helps us know what to do if there is a potentially violent intruder inside the school or on school property.

Today, our school conducted a lockdown drill and teachers talked to students to prepare them for the drill. As a part of our safety training we also show students a video regarding lockdown drills so students would know what a lockdown looks like in the school.

I am very proud of our students today. They listened to directions and the drill was conducted in a calm and orderly fashion. Our students did a great job, and I encourage you to discuss the drill with them.  Additional guidance on discussions with your child about lockdown drills can be found in the Parent/Guardian tip letter, as well as on the frequently asked questions (FAQs) page.

Our emergency preparedness plans have been developed in coordination with the FCPS Office of Safety and Security, local law enforcement, emergency management officials, and FCPS mental health professionals. The plans are regularly reviewed and updated and include procedures on how to respond to critical incidents such as fires, tornadoes, and other events. Students and staff regularly practice safety drills.

I will continue to keep you informed of safety and security measures in place at our school. If you have questions, please call or contact the school office.  I appreciate your continued support in these matters.

Sincerely,

Pamela Simpkins Ph.D.
