Good afternoon, Panther Community!

Right now, we are planning for hybrid students to return to the school building starting January 21. However, much may have changed since the spring when you last made a decision on whether your student wanted hybrid learning or 100% distance. Therefore, all parents will have to restate which they prefer in ParentVUE by November 20th.
 
Who needs to enter the choice of hybrid or 100% distance learning? All parents/guardians of LCPS students must complete the survey in ParentVUE. Here's how.
 
When is the survey due? The survey is currently open and must be completed by November 20 at 8pm.
 
Can I change my mind later? No. This will be a binding choice for the entire second semester of the 2020-2021 school year, from January 21 to June 15. Students whose families do not select an option by November 20th at 8 PM will be enrolled in Option 1 (hybrid). Note: transitioning to hybrid instruction is not guaranteed and is dependent on public health metrics and other data. The selection made for Semester 2 has no impact on the current Semester 1 learning option for your student.
 
Where can I get more information? LCPS has a website devoted to the transition to hybrid at ---. The 2nd Semester Guide may also be helpful. 
 
 
If you have questions about what hybrid and distance learning will look like at Potomac Falls, we will be hosting a Town Hall on Monday from 5:00-6:00pm at http://lcps.org/pfhs/townhall2020. Because of the number of people who will be watching, we are collecting questions at https://forms.gle/gtadJQTCKN3K4MrDA. We will discuss the answers to those questions during the town hall as time permits. All the questions and answers will also be posted online afterward as a resource.

Message from the Nurse

Parents/Guardians,

Even though we are in a virtual school environment, please email me your student's Allergy Action Plan, Asthma Action Plan, Seizure Emergency Action Plan, Authorization for Medication Administration and/or Diabetic Medical Management Plan as applicable.  We would like to be ready to pivot quickly to the hybrid model and provide for your student's medical needs.  Also, in a virtual environment we want your student's teacher to be aware of any health concerns.  My email address is Amy.Hisel@lcps.org PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF MEDICATIONS OR MEDICAL SUPPLIES AT THIS TIME.   Please note that if your student requires an inhaler during the school day, they will need a spacer available in school due to concerns related to COVID-19.

Panthers Helping Panthers (video)

Last June, Potomac Falls High School asked for your support of our community’s families who faced significant needs due to the COVID-19 crisis. 


The response from the Potomac Falls community was amazing and inspiring. Through your donations, the school provided assistance through the summer and early fall to our school’s students and families. 


While our devoted and heroic school cafeteria workers continue to provide meals for Potomac Falls students and families, this assistance is not meant to provide full and complete nutritional needs. 


As the COVID-19 crisis continues, many of our Potomac Falls students and families continue to live with food insecurity. 


The time has come again for Potomac Falls High School to ask for your support. 

With cash and check donations now not possible, we ask for your financial donation in $25 dollar increments to go toward the purchase of grocery store gift cards that will be distributed to our students and families in need. 


To make a donation, please go to the PTSO’s Panthers Helping Panthers link on the Potomac Falls website.

https://potomac-falls-ptso.square.site/product/panthers-helping-panthers/31?cs=true 


We understand that not all are in a position to give, and ask that you donate what you can at this time.


Thank you for your kindness, generosity, and compassion.  


Once a Panther always a Panther.
