“Yay, No Computer!:” Bridge to First Grade Summer Program Eases Return to In-Person Learning
Students in Silverbrook Elementary School's Bridge to First Grade program rejoice in things they may have missed during virtual Kindergarten -- like seeing a friend's face for the first time, sharing your favorite color with a classmate, and learning how to walk in a single file line through school hallways to the playground for recess.
Required School Immunization Appointments Available
Documentation of immunization is required for students entering kindergarten, 7th grade, 12th grade, and for new students transferring into FCPS. Now is the time to schedule a free appointment through the Fairfax County Health Department for your child's immunizations.

There is now a new Emergency Broadband Benefit available to eligible households through the Federal Communications Commission. This is a temporary benefit that will help to lower the cost of internet broadband service during the on-going COVID-19 pandemic. Find out more.
COVID-19 Vaccinations Available for Ages 12 and Up
As our community strives to achieve herd immunity, vaccinating children ages 12 and up is a critical step towards achieving that goal and will help to keep our schools healthy places to learn. We encourage everyone 12 years of age and older to get the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. Many locations offer same-day appointments, and some even have walk in availability. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or another adult at all community vaccination sites.
Parent Technology Help Desk
The Parent Technology Help Desk will continue to support parents and students through the summer months. The number is 1-833-921-3277 (833-921-FCPS). It will be answered by staff from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
