    LCPS students and staff wear masks as part of a layered strategy to help prevent COVID-19 transmission. The General Assembly adopted Chapter 456 (often referred to as SB1303) on March 30, 2021, directing school boards to offer and prioritize in-person instruction. It also requires school boards to adhere to mitigation procedures, like mask-wearing, to the extent practicable as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). In order to comply with this legislation, masks must be worn by students, staff and visitors in LCPS facilities. Federal law requires the use of masks while on school buses. Please continue to wear your masks to keep yourselves and others safe and healthy. 

    It's also the last week of marking period two and the end of the first semester. Students, you should be checking in ParentVUE/StudentVUE to make sure you have turned in all your assignments and completed any retakes.

    Happy New Year, Panther Community!  

    We hope you had a safe and relaxing winter break. As we return to classes, remember that Friday, January 28th is the last day of 2nd quarter. Please make sure you are checking ParentVUE/StudentVUE for your current grade and Schoology for any missing assignments. If you were failing a course at interims (Dec. 17), you should be working with your teacher to develop a plan to improve your grade by the end of the quarter. Check your email (yourstudentID@lcps.org) frequently for communications from your teachers. We hope that everyone is recharged from their break and ready to succeed in the new year.

    Masks and Parking
    Good afternoon, Panther Community!
     
    Please keep in mind that everyone who enters an LCPS school building must wear a mask. This is regardless of vaccination status. We ask that students & visitors bring their own masks each day. We have some extra masks we can offer in an emergency, but some students are asking for a new one every day. Please make sure that your child has a mask with them whenever they come to school.
     
    Parking facilities are offered at Potomac Falls High School as a convenience to students who drive to school. Parking on school grounds is a privilege. Students must purchase a parking permit at a cost of $200 per year. Academies of Loudoun (ACL) students will pay $100 directly to PFHS and $100 directly to ACL due to limited parking at ACL. You can order one here and pay online here.  
     
    Thank you very much for your cooperation! We hope you have a great week.
