For Parents/Guardians

  • Arrival and dismissal times

    The school day begins at 7:45 a.m. and ends at 2:35 p.m. Doors open in the morning at 7:15 a.m., and students will report to the gym until 7:30 a.m., when they will be dismissed to their classrooms. At 2:35 p.m., our Silent Dismissal screen runs, and students are dismissed according to their transportation home. 


    Please do not park in the front bus lane within 45 minutes of arrival or dismissal time. We have additional parking on both sides of the building (at the entrance off of Sovereign Lane and at the Jekyll Drive entrance). Please also make sure you park in a parking spot and not in the playground area. 


    Any time you visit our school, you must check in at the front office and get a visitor sticker, which you must wear visibly. When you leave, check out in the front office as well. 


    Please consider volunteering at Rosa Parks. Turn in this PTA form or contact PTA President Rebekah Boyd with any questions.

    You can also reach out to your child's teacher for opportunities to volunteer in the classroom. Many need parents/guardians to chaperone field trips, too. Before you can help in any capacity, you must clear a background check with FCPS


    • Please remember that you must send in a written note with a parent/guardian signature for student absences, even if you spoke on the phone with the registrar.
    • Any time you know your child will be absent, feel free to call and notify the school that morning.
    • In case of early dismissal during inclement weather, watch the local news, check our website, and expect emails from your child's teacher. We must have confirmation from you on how your child will get home that day.
