  • Chromebook Request

    When school returns to in-person learning, all students will need a Chromebook. If you do not have one please fill out this form. We will send you an EMAIL when the Chromebook is ready to be picked up. We would like to distribute as many Chromebooks as possible before the return to school so that students have the Chromebook with them charged and ready the first day back.

    If your student already has a Chromebook from an FCPS school, but it has a problem, you will need to call the helpdesk at 381-4410 and see if they can fix the problem. If not, they will give you a ticket number to enter in the form linked above to get a replacement.

  • Meal Pickups & P-EBT cards

    As a reminder to FCPS families, all meals are free for all students whether in the cafeteria or via pickup if still in remote learning. This federal waiver is in effect for the rest of the 2020-21 school year. 

    Eligible families also receive help buying groceries through the federally funded Pandemic-EBT cards, which go out to qualified students.

  • PLD Dance Blue Event

    Many exciting things are happening in the Dunbar community! Student Council will be hosting the annual DanceBlue event! It will take place during 4th Block on Friday, March 19th, on a virtual platform. This will be a fun way for both our in-person and virtual students to participate in the activity to raise awareness about pediatric cancer and celebrate the full return of our Dunbar students. We plan to live stream minute-to-win-it challenges completed by the teachers during the first 10 minutes of each class. During 4th Block, those registered will not be required to do classwork during that time and will be given access to the virtual platform where they are able to play games and win actual prizes! Below is some more information, including the link and a video.

    • Date: March 19
    • Time: 1:45-3:00 (4th Block)
