March 13, 2020

Dear Green Hedges Families,

We are aware that Fairfax County Public Schools announced today that the school system will close through April 10, 2020. We are assessing the situation and will send an Update from the Head early next week. Please see the letter from Fairfax County Public Schools below for more information.

Jennifer Bohnen
Head of School
Dear FCPS Parents, Staff, and Community,

In support of the governor’s announcement today, and in response to the ongoing concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in our region, Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) will close schools through April 10, 2020.

Schools will be closed for students for four weeks, including spring break. Schools will be closed for less than 12 month staff for at least two weeks. We will reassess schools reopening for less than 12 month staff after two weeks and we will make that decision no later than Friday, March 27. The operating status of SACC has not been determined at this time.

The staff development day scheduled for Monday, March 16, is postponed. School offices and central offices will be open on Monday, March 16.

FCPS schools will be open Monday, March 16, for students and staff to access their belongings as well as providing laptops or other digital devices for students in grades 3-8 who do not have access at home.
We inspire young people of talent and promise to develop clear values, a desire for wisdom, and an appreciation for all endeavors which broaden the mind and enlighten the spirit.
