For Parents/Guardians

  • Family engagement

    Southern Middle offers a variety of opportunities for families to participate in their child's learning. Anyone interested in volunteering must register with FCPS and clear a criminal background check. You can also find out about districtwide opportunities to volunteer.


    Please do not double park in the lot or use the bus lane in front of the school between 8:30 and 9:05 a.m. to drop off your child. Use the car loop on the side of the building when dropping off and picking up your student. If you arrive late or early for clubs, you may use the bus lane, but do not park on the yellow line. If you need to park to come in, please use the parking lot or side streets. Check out this video for arrival and dismissal
