Greetings Families,

I hope summer break is off to a good start and everyone is safe and healthy. 

You will receive an email today from Dr. Brabrand outlining the options for your child for next year. The deadline for your response is July 10, 2020.

I understand the frustration of wanting to have more details to make this decision and yet so many of the answers to those questions depends on the number of students enrolled in each option.  I want to share the most accurate information that might help you in making your decision. Please know that my role is simply to help you make an informed decision, and not lead you to make a choice that doesn’t match the needs of your child. Here are a few quick points of information about the options.

  • If you chose the online option, our teachers will provide instruction Tuesday – Friday, and we will provide independent assignments for Mondays. Unlike during the crisis teaching last spring, attendance will be mandatory, and teachers will grade assignments as they do when we are in person. You can see more details here.
  • If you chose the in-person option, students will be in class with teachers two days per week, and we will provide independent assignments for the other days. You can see details about the plan for social distancing and other details here.

We don’t have details about specials classes, recess, and lunch just yet, but I will share these with you as they become available.  

Please note that you will need the student ID number for your child, and either the enrolling parent’s email address or the enrolling parent’s phone number when you register. You can find the ID number near your child’s name on the progress report you should have received last week.

Finally, I have two additional links that might help:

FCPS Return to School Frequently Asked Questions

CDC Guidelines for Schools

I know that this is a tough choice, especially with a rapidly evolving situation with the COVID-19 virus. While I can’t predict where we will be in August, I can tell you that the Daniels Run team will work hard to make this work for our children, staff, and families.

I know there are many questions and I am happy to connect with you but I don't have any additional information to share beyond the above resources.  I will be on leave the rest of this week but feel free to email me (cmsmith@fcps.edu) with questions and I will answer them when I return next week.   

 

Thanks for your support,

 

Chris Smith

Summer Update - June 26, 2020

Reading & Math Summer Resources

Summer workbooks are about to arrive for all our FCPS students. They focus on mathematics and literacy skills taught during the 2019-2020 school year. Students can choose to use these workbooks to review content recently learned.

We know that all children benefit from continuing to reading and practice math skills over the summer.  Students are at risk of losing learning that was gained during the school year. With parent encouragement and access to books, however, students can continue their progress throughout the summer.  We have created a document of Reading and Math resources which are available over the summer.  

We have also created helpful suggestions for family members: "What to do with your child while they read?"

 

Summer Grab and Go Food Distribution

Summer Grab and Go Food Distribution will continue through June 30. Breakfast and Lunch are available from 9:15-9:45 at Daniels Run ES and other specified locations. The list of locations is available online.

Updated information regarding the Grab and Go Food distribution for July and August will be announced in late June. 

  Summer Book Mobile

You are invited to our Summer Book Mobile on Wednesday, July 15th from  1-3 pm at Daniels Run main entrance.  Come and say hello and grab some books to read for the summer. 

  School Counselors, Psychologists, and Social Workers Are Available During the Summer

The FCPS Office of Intervention and Prevention Services will continue to offer mental wellness consultations throughout the summer. If you have concerns about your child’s well-being or if your child would like to speak with a school psychologist or school social worker, please request a consultation.  Our FCPS mental health providers are available to help families get needed support through a 45-minute phone consultation or through secure video conferencing. Appointments are open to all FCPS families. 

Consultations are offered in two ways:

  • Directly to parents of students in any grade level. This consultation provides an opportunity for parents to receive guidance on how to support their child’s social-emotional, behavioral, or academic functioning. Information about community resources will also be made available.
  • Directly to students in middle or high school. This consultation provides support and strategies to students who may be experiencing difficulties with anxiety, mood, behavior, or peer or family interactions; as well as academic challenges such as organization, time-management, or adjusting to a new school.

We encourage parents to take advantage of this service. Click here to request a consultation. You may also leave us a message at 571-423-4276.

Consultations provide an opportunity for parents to receive guidance on how to support their child’s emotional well-being during their time away from school. Student consultations will provide support and strategies to students who may be experiencing difficulties with anxiety, mood, behavior, or peer or family interactions during this unprecedented and challenging time.

Summer Learning - Registration Closes Friday (6/19)

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Daniels Run Families, 

FCPS school buildings will remain closed through the end of July. Therefore, we will continue to provide recommended distance learning opportunities for students throughout the summer.  FCPS is offering several optional distance learning opportunities this summer for students to review and practice essential skills from the current grade. 

  • Students currently in grades K-6 at Daniels Run will have access to Imagine Learning (an online language and literacy program where your child can continue to develop literacy skills through fun games and short lessons) and Dreambox (an online Math program that helps build conceptual understanding and increase procedural proficiency).  You will need a laptop, tablet or desktop computer (no cellphones) and make sure you use Chrome. 
  • Students currently in grades K-6 will receive both a Mathematics and a Language Arts Essentials Summer Practice Workbook in the mail by the end of June. Digital versions of the books will also be posted on the Continuity of Learning Blackboard page. These books will provide practice activities to review essential content from the 2019-2020 school year and do not preview content from next year's grade level. 
  • To register your student for office hours and receive a secure link, please complete the Summer Distance Learning Form by Friday, June 19th. Once registered, your child will receive log-in information via their FCPS Google email address prior to the first session.  
  • A Daniels Run teacher will be available on a Blackboard Collaborate link, one hour each week between June 29th and July 31st to answer student questions about the summer workbook.

Congratulations to our 6th grade students!

Principal's Corner

Greetings Families,

This has certainly been a school year we will not forget.  On behalf of Mrs. Hein and Mr. Parker, I want to say thank you to our students, families and staff for overcoming the many challenges of distance learning and making the best of a difficult situation.  It was great seeing many of our Kindergarten and Sixth grade students and families this week during our "drive/walk thru" promotion events.  Many families are ending their elementary experience as their oldest or only child heads to middle school.  Thank you for all the time and effort you have dedicated to Daniels Run! 

I know there are many questions regarding the start of the 2020-21 school year.  Governor Ralph Northam made an announcement Tuesday regarding the phased approach to reopening schools. Below are several links related to that announcement:

I encourage you to watch the FCPS School Board meeting on June 15th as further details are discussed regarding the opening of the 2020-21 school year. 

I included a message to students in yesterday's announcements, here it is again in case you missed it.

Summer Reading Challenge!

We are excited to announce that Summer Reading begins on June 15 and will run through August 24! 

The goal is simple: read every day. You can read anything, from magazines to books to cereal boxes! You can also use resources like MYON, TumbleBooks, and Scholastic. Exercising those reading muscles through the summer months will help kids stay ready for school in the fall! Reading for at least 20 minutes every day is a great habit to start!

We have included a fun twist on summer reading with various challenges and fun ways to incorporate reading into every day life. We hope you enjoy it!

Thank you!

 

Clinical Team, Tip of the Week! Student Registration

Schools remain closed to families; however, if you have a rising kindergartener or other new student to register, we would like to do a preliminary registration now.  If you know of any families that would be new to Daniels Run (that have rising kindergarteners or students in grades 1-6), please forward this information to them.  Early registration for next year is important as it supports the number of teachers for which we are staffed.  

To register your child for school, please email anunez@fcps.edu with “Registration” in the subject line.  If you are able to fill out the form using this link https://danielsrunes.fcps.edu/new-student-registration-2020-21 save it to your device, and attach it to the email to send back to us, that is the preferred option.  If you are not able to do that, please let us know when you might be available for a phone interview.  After we receive your email, we will reach out with any additional questions. If you have any questions or concerns about registration, please email Mrs. Nunez.

Tutoring Services

Please note the following is being shared for Casey Nelson as information and is not meant as an endorsement by Daniels Run or FCPS.

 

I wanted to share an opportunity for students and parents to participate in if there is interest. My name is Casey Nelson, Project Leader for the K-12 tutoring program for the Covid Student Service Corps (CSSC) chapter at George Mason University. Our tutoring program is built to connect students from Fairfax County Public Schools to a George Mason University student-volunteer as their tutor. The tutoring sessions take place virtually and at the agreed availability of the student and tutor.

If this sounds like a service that would benefit your child, you can visit our website (csscgmu.com) then click on the “Projects” tab which will take you to the K-12 Tutoring page to fill out a form to sign your child up. You can also contact me via email (caseycsscgmu@gmail.com) and I can send you the sign up information if it is more convenient for you. After you sign your child up, you will receive a confirmation email stating your form was received. I will match your child to one of our tutors that fits with their availability and subject. Then you will receive another email from me with the tutor’s contact information a few days later. From there the tutor will set up virtual meetings through Zoom, Webex, or Google Hangouts, whichever is most convenient. 

We understand it is a challenging time and we want to be there to help your child succeed in the coming school year. Please do not hesitate to email me with any questions! Thanks! 

Comcast and Cox Internet

Fairfax County Launching Parent Support Line and Online Parent Café

Fairfax County Government is launching a parent support line and will begin hosting an online Parent Café on Monday evenings, where parents can connect with each other to process through and share different strategies. Some thoughts that might be exchanged:

  • What are you doing during this time?
  • How are you dealing with this?
  • How are you dealing with distance learning while still doing your job?
  • How are you dealing with not losing it when your kid asks for snacks for the 600th time?

The Parent Café will be held on the conferencing app Zoom on Monday evenings from 7:30-8:30 p.m.

To participate, you’ll need to register at least 24 hours ahead of time by calling 703-324-7720, or you can send an email to buildingstrongerfamilies@fairfaxcounty.gov.

FCPS is providing no-cost grab and go breakfast and lunch meals from 9:15-9:45 a.m., Monday through Friday at Daniels Run ES.

All FCPS students (regardless of age) are eligible for no-cost grab and go breakfast and lunch, as well as other county children, under the age of 18. Adults picking up meals for children should let staff know how many children's meals they need. Adults may pay $2 for the meals as well.

Meal pick-up stations are generally located in the bus lanes at the schools or in the kiss and ride area. Look for the canopy tent along with Food and Nutrition Services staff, who will deliver meals directly to vehicles.  Walk-ups are welcome at all sites. Walkers are asked to use school sidewalks to safely navigate their walk to the pick-up stations.

As a reminder, it is important to follow social distancing guidelines. Be sure to stand a minimum of 6 feet apart from others and practice regular hand washing, including prior to leaving a residence to pick-up meals, upon returning home, and before consuming food.

Message from the Fairfax Pyramid Principals

GovDelivery 1 month ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Dear Fairfax Pyramid Families,

While we spend the next couple of weeks celebrating our Class of 2020, their successes, strength, and determination, we are reminded of the great hope we have in our future.  Our graduates are resilient; our graduates are optimistic; and our graduates hold the promise of creating a bright future for our world.  We are proud of them, and we are proud to serve our community.

Despite the bright light that our students cast, the darkness of the recent events in our country anger, frustrate, and challenge us as community leaders.  It angers us to bear witness to injustice; it frustrates us to know that we explicitly have not only a need, but a moral obligation to help our students process them—and we are two months removed from our classrooms, our school, our second home. We are two months removed from our safe place and safe space.  We are two months removed from what is our why every single day—our students. Finally, these events challenge us to speak up and find new ways to engage our community, engage our students, and actively make known that we stand behind the many who are voiceless and the many who are fighting to have their voices heard. 

To our Black and African American students, families, and community members,  we share the sentiment that Dr. Brabrand eloquently said to our staff in a recent communication:   We see you; we believe in you; and we stand with you.

Our Fairfax Pyramid schools value the diversity that makes us special.  Each of our Pyramid’s schools has unique ways they build community, support students, and celebrate differences.  Racism, prejudice, and discrimination have no place in our Pyramid, and we will continue to strive towards inclusivity--we are One Fairfax.  We have a collective responsibility as a community to promote discussions and actions regarding inequities, discrimination, and tolerance.  Here are links to  resources for families to consider that might guide these discussions with your children:

 

We are Better Together,

Good morning,

 

We are providing a video read aloud of the book, Let's Talk About Race, by Julius Lester.   

"I write because our lives are stories. If enough of these stories are told, then perhaps we will begin to see that our lives are the same story. The differences are merely in the details."

~Julius Lester

In this important book, Let’s Talk About Race, Julius Lester creates a safe space for families to explore race, experiences, and ultimately provide growth and learning for all. Consider watching this video together as a family.

 

Wednesday- June 3 - Announcements
