The dates for the 2016 - 2017 School Year are October 11, February 14 and the last date will be May 23. Flyers need to be delivered one week in advance and have this phrase printed at the bottom: "These materials are neither sponsored nor endorsed by the Fairfax County School Board, the Superintendent, or this school." In the event of a shortage, we will not make copies of fliers. Please contact the Administrative Assistant at 703.578.8000 for more information.


Returned Checks Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS)Returned Checks Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) utilize a third party check collection service, Checkredi Payment Services to reduce the administrative burden placed on school personnel in managing returned checks.
