Arrival and Dismissal

Please use this link  to learn about Sunrise Valley arrival and dismissal procedures.

The lower parking lot is not available for drop off and pick up.  The kiss and ride loop (upper parking lot) is to be used. 

It is very important for all of our students and families to follow these procedures as they are the safest and also the most efficient. 

Please promote your child's safety and be considerate to school neighbors, bus drivers, school staff  and all our Sunrise Valley families by complying with these procedures.

Bus Route Information

Be on the lookout mid next week for an email from FCPS Transportation containing information about your child’s bus route. 

Kindergarten Bus Students

Kindergarten students who ride the bus in the afternoon MUST be met at the bus door and asked for by name by a parent, parent designee, guardian, or a responsible middle school age or higher sibling. Children will be returned to school if the driver has concerns for their safety.

In case of emergencies such as road closures, accidents, or weather related road problems, drivers may use safe transportation-approved alternate locations to pick up or drop off students. If there is not a safe transportation-approved alternative stop, the driver may choose to return to school.

Drivers may also choose to return to the school if they have concerns regarding the safety of releasing a student at a regular stop, or if a child expresses concern for any reason about getting off of the bus.

ADVANCED ACADEMIC PROGRAMS (AAP): Screening for School Based (Level I-III) Services

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) offers a continuum of advanced academic services for all students in grades K-8.  Learning experiences are designed to develop higher-level thinking through enrichment, acceleration, and extensions of the Program of Studies (POS).  Teachers, administrators, and advanced academic resource teachers (AARTs) work together to provide the following levels of school-based services in each elementary school: 

  • Critical and Creative Thinking Lessons, Grades K-6 (Level I)

All students in kindergarten through grade six receive level I services which consist of model lessons that are designed to teach critical and creative thinking skills.  The lessons are modeled in all classrooms by AARTs and the thinking strategies are then used throughout the year by classroom teachers and other teachers who work with students. Student responses to these model lessons are used as part of the identification process for AAP services.  Parents may also practice the thinking strategies during family conversations and activities.  A description of the nine critical and creative thinking strategies can be found here

  • Differentiated Lessons in Areas of Academic Strength, Grades K-6 (Level II)

The AART collaborates with classroom teachers to provide additional challenge through lessons and resources that extend and enrich the POS.  Level II services are part of a talent development pool.  Students are rescreened annually to make decisions about the need for this level of service.

  • Part-Time Advanced Academic Programs, Grades 3-6 (Level III)

Students identified by a local school screening committee for part-time advanced academic services are challenged through models and strategies designed to extend and enrich the POS in the four core subject areas.  Students receive direct instruction from the AART at the local school using curriculum from the AAP Curriculum and Resources to Support the Differentiated Framework.  Students identified for Level III services continue to receive level III services through grade 6.  

Screening for school-based services can happen at any time during the school year but is done schoolwide in spring to determine services for the next school year. 

Parents or guardians may initiate the screening for school-based (level II and III) services by submitting the AAP School-Based Services (Level II-III) Referral Form (located at the bottom of the page in forms) to the AART at Sunrise Valley prior to spring screening by June 1st , 2018.   Multiple criteria are used to screen students for all levels of AAP services.   

If a parent or guardian wishes to appeal an ineligible decision, they may submit an appeal with new data for consideration by the local school screening committee.  This new information should be submitted to Sara Balcanoff.   

If you have any questions, please contact Sara Balcanoff at sebalcanoff@fcps.edu.

5th Grade Parents/ Guardians: TDAP Vaccine Notice

Virginia Law requires that all students entering sixth grade receive a booster dose of the Tdap vaccine prior to the beginning of school. The Tdap vaccine protects against tetanus (lockjaw), diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough) and is usually given around the age of eleven. 

In order for your child to begin 6th grade you will need to submit a medical record showing that the Tdap booster was given prior to the first day of school.           

The Tdap booster is available from your child’s healthcare provider or The Fairfax County Health Department.  

Please see the link below for more information about The Health Department clinic locations and hours: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/hd/hdclinicsite.htm, or by calling 703-246-2411. 

You may submit the documentation by email mtadros@fcps.edu or to Mira Tadros 703-715-3801.

6th Grade Parents/ Guardians

The  promotion ceremony celebrating our 6th grade students will take place on the last day of school- please join us.  The ceremony will start at 9:45 am and the doors will open for seating at 9:20 am.
