    Welcome to Family Life Education
     
    There are at least three ways for families to get information about specifics pertaining to the Family Life Education program in Loudoun County Public Schools:
     
    1.)  All Students receive an envelope on the first day of school that contains a Family Life Education Packet.  This packet lists the SOLs to be covered at each grade level and the possibility for parents to OPT their child out of the program.
     
    2.)  FLE curriculum guides are available in the Loudoun County Public libraries and the school library.
     
    3.)  A Parent Preview session is provided for parents to look over the materials, watch the videos used in class lessons, and the curriculum guides (containing the SOLs) are also available.  FLE teachers are available to answer concerns and questions.
     
    I will be teaching at three schools this year.  Please Email me if you have any questions/concerns Germaine.Grinkley@lcps.org.
