PTA Directory Update Deadline

Monday, 22 September 2014 00:00

Hurry, time is running out to get your information updated in the 2014-2015 Oak Hill PTA Directory!  The last day to update your information is on Saturday, September 27th at midnight. This will give us enough time to prepare and print the directories in time for the Fall Festival.

As part of your Oak Hill PTA membership, you will receive access to an Oak Hill directory mobile app as well as a hard copy directory for 2014-15. You will quickly find out the directory is a great tool for on-the-go parents to keep up with planning children’s activities and play dates. 

New families may go online to http://schooldirectoryupdate.com/desktop/login.php and select “Join as a New Family” to Oak Hill Elementary.

FCPS Calendar Changes

Friday, 15 August 2014 23:43

Revisions to the master calendar for FCPS were approved by the Fairfax County School Board at its business meeting on July 24. The calendar differs from the previous years in the following ways:

Added four strategic planning days for teachers on September 29, February 2, March 16, and April 6. The strategic planning days will be student holidays.
Two hour early release on the last day of the quarter and the day before Thanksgiving break and winter break. Students will be released two hours early on the last day of school instead of attending school for two hours and then being dismissed.   A two week-long winter break.

In total, the revised 2014-15 school year calendar includes seven teacher workdays to offer teachers time for staff meetings and professional development, as well as three teacher staff development days, four strategic planning days, and six days with a two-hour early release for teacher directed time.

The length of the school year remains the same, but the number of days for students has been reduced from 183 days to 180 days. By eliminating the shortened Monday schedule for elementary schools, FCPS was able to make changes to the calendar that comply with state accreditation for 990 hours of instruction. The change to 990 instructional hours also eliminates the need to make up inclement weather days at the end of the school year if fewer than 13 days are missed.

The FCPS calendar can be viewed online at http://www.fcps.edu/about/14-15cal.shtml.
