• Face masks are optional in all FCPS district facilities and on our school buses. School visitors and volunteers are also welcome again. Note: Masks are still required for anyone entering the nurse's office, health room, and clinics in our schools. 

    Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, FCPS has looked to national, state, and local health experts and adjusted our response based on new data and updated science to safeguard our students, employees, and community.

  • What to do: Students and employees should stay home if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 and report positive cases to our risk management team. Anyone who tests positive must stay home for five days. On day six, those who have been symptom-free for 24 hours without medication may return to work or school if they wear a mask for the next five days.
