Lunch Balances

🥗 Don’t Forget to Check Your Student’s Lunch Balance! 

It’s a busy time of year, and we know there are many priorities on families’ plates. As we approach the end of the school year, it is important for families to remember to check their students’ MySchoolBucks account and pay any remaining school meal balance. 

Families who earn less than 185% of poverty level qualify for free and reduced-price meals. However, an application must be completed and submitted each school year to receive that benefit. The application for the 2023-24 school year will be available near the end of August. 

If families have a current balance and think they may be eligible for free and reduced-price meals, please fill out the FRM application for the 2022-23 school year. Get more information about free and reduced-price lunch.

If you are interested in helping to relieve lunch debt for families currently going through the FRM application process, please donate to Educate Fairfax.

🥗 ¡No Olvide Revisar el Saldo del Almuerzo de su Estudiante!

Es una época ocupada del año, y sabemos que las familias tienen muchas prioridades. A medida que nos acercamos al final del año escolar, es importante que las familias recuerden revisar la cuenta MySchoolBucks de sus estudiantes y pagar cualquier balance de comida escolar restante. Las familias que ganan menos del 185% del nivel de pobreza califican para comidas gratis o a precio reducido. Sin embargo, hay que cumplimentar y presentar una nueva solicitud cada año escolar para recibir ese beneficio. La solicitud para el año escolar 2023-24 estará disponible a finales de Agosto. Si las familias tienen un balance actual y piensan que pueden ser elegibles para recibir comidas gratis o a precio reducido, por favor llenen la solicitud FRM para el año escolar 2022-23. Obtenga más información sobre el almuerzo gratuito y a precio reducido.

Si usted está interesado en ayudar a reducir la deuda de almuerzo para las familias que actualmente están pasando por el proceso de solicitud de FRM, por favor haga una donación a Educate Fairfax.

Happy Mothers Day

As we approach Mother's Day, White Oaks would like to take a moment to acknowledge the incredible women who have shaped our lives and continue to do so every day. Mothers are truly the backbone of our families and communities, and their tireless efforts often go unnoticed and unappreciated.

At our school, we recognize the critical role that mothers play in the lives of our students. We see firsthand the love, support, and guidance that they provide to their children, both inside and outside of the classroom. We also know that being a mother is not an easy task, and we want to thank all of the amazing moms out there for their unwavering commitment and dedication to their families.

On behalf of our entire school community, We want to wish all of the mothers a very happy Mother's Day. We hope that this day is filled with love, laughter, and relaxation. May you be showered with appreciation and gratitude, not just on this special day, but every day of the year.

 

Message From the SCA

Hello White Oaks Parents! 

The SCA officers want to tell you about the “Try Something New Challenge”. The “Try Something New Challenge” is literally just what it says. We want students to try something they haven’t tried before. It could be a new food, a new hobby, a new sport…. anything a bit out of their comfort zone. Our goal is to encourage students to break out of their old habits and expand their interests.  Plus, it will just be fun.  

We have a form in the Students Course in Schoology where students can upload a picture of them trying something new and describing how it felt. The picture will then be hung up on the walls of the school to encourage their friends and teachers to try something new. Parents may use this link to upload a picture of their student participating here: https://forms.gle/aLWf4g7BCaAahTd97

So, remind or tell your kids to Try Something New! 

Thank you,

The White Oaks Student Association Officers

Any middle school students who would like to participate in athletics will need to have a Virginia High School League (VHSL) pre-participation examination (PPE). The physical exam form must be completed and signed by a physician, nurse practitioner, or physician’s assistant. Fairfax County public high schools will offer PPEs at a cost of $50 per student through June 17. Students who receive free or reduced meals are eligible to receive an exam at no cost. Learn more about PPE and middle school athletics.

🏃‍♀️ Atletismo en la escuela intermedia a partir del otoño

FCPS ha designado fondos en el presupuesto para 2023-24 para las actividades atléticas de primavera y otoño de la escuela intermedia para apoyar el bienestar estudiantil sin costo para los estudiantes. Pendiente de la adopción del presupuesto, esta será la primera vez que FCPS ha ofrecido a estudiantes de escuelas intermedias la oportunidad de participar en programas deportivos extracurriculares. 

Las escuelas intermedias comenzarán con “Cross Country” este otoño. Atletismo “Track” seguirá en la primavera de 2024.

Cualquier estudiante de escuela intermedia que quiera participar en atletismo tendrá que tener un examen de pre-participación (PPE) de la Liga de Escuelas Secundarias de Virginia (VHSL). El formulario de examen físico debe ser completado y firmado por un médico, enfermera o asistente médico. Las escuelas secundarias públicas del condado de Fairfax ofrecerán los PPE a un costo de $50 por estudiante hasta el 17 de junio. Los estudiantes que reciben comidas gratis o reducidas son elegibles para recibir un examen sin costo alguno. Obtenga más información sobre el PPE y el atletismo en las escuelas intermedias.

Social Emotional Learning Screener Reports

Twice a year, students in grades 3-12 share their perspectives on how well their school and community help them develop skills they need to succeed through the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Screener. These skills include achieving goals, understanding and managing emotions, establishing and maintaining relationships with adults and peers, and making responsible decisions. Students also share how successful their school and community are at making them feel valued, included, and supported. These factors are critical to positive academic, social, and emotional success. 

Spring 2023 SEL Screener results will be mailed to families in mid-May. The Social Emotional Learning Screener Parent/Guardian Report and Guide has been updated to better reflect how SEL Screener results are used to support school and districtwide planning, in addition to supports for individual students. Visit the FCPS SEL Screener webpage for information in multiple languages, including tips for talking with your student about the report and strategies for strengthening SEL at home. 

Informes sobre el aprendizaje socioemocionalDos veces al año, los alumnos de 3º a 12º grado comparten sus puntos de vista sobre la medida en que su escuela y su comunidad les ayudan a desarrollar las habilidades que necesitan para tener éxito a través del Cuestionario de Evaluación del Aprendizaje Socioemocional (SEL). Estas habilidades incluyen la consecución de objetivos, la comprensión y gestión de las emociones, el establecimiento y mantenimiento de relaciones con adultos y compañeros, y la toma de decisiones responsables. Los alumnos también indican hasta qué punto la escuela y la comunidad consiguen que se sientan valorados, incluidos y apoyados. Estos factores son críticos para el éxito académico, social y emocional. 

Los resultados del SEL Screener de la primavera de 2023 se enviarán por correo a las familias a mediados de mayo. El Informe y Guía para Padres/Guardianes del Evaluador de Aprendizaje Social Emocional ha sido actualizado para reflejar mejor cómo se usan los resultados del Evaluador SEL para apoyar la planificación de la escuela y del distrito, además de apoyos para estudiantes individuales. Visite la página web de FCPS SEL Screener para obtener información en varios idiomas, incluyendo consejos para hablar con su estudiante sobre el informe y estrategias para fortalecer SEL en casa.

WOES Yearbook Orders AAP Level II and III Advanced Academic Programs (AAP) Screening for Subject Specific (Level II) and Part-Time (Level III) Services

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is committed to challenging all students through talent development and differentiated instruction to meet the needs of advanced learners.

Screening for Subject Specific (Level II) and Part-Time (Level III) Services

Students can be screened for subject specific and part time AAP services at any time in the school year. In the spring, schools review data on all students to determine services for the start of the next school year.

Screening Process for Subject Specific (Level II) and Part-Time (Level III) Services

Multiple criteria are reviewed holistically to determine eligibility for all FCPS advanced academic services. Committees consider student work from opportunities with AAP lessons, examples of student reasoning or gifted behaviors from class discussions and activities, progress reports, achievement and ability scores, and parent or guardian input. Committees consider whether students have access to a group of students with similar academic needs to support academic conversations and growth in the classroom.

Appeals Process for Subject Specific (Level II) and Part-Time (Level III) 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 the Advanced Academic Resource Teacher or Assistant Principal.

Subject Specific and Part-Time Services Overview Subject Specific and Part-Time Services in Elementary School

FCPS offers a continuum of advanced academic services for all students in Grades K-12. The continuum of services approach allows for a focus on matching services to students’ needs rather than labeling students. Students have:

  • Multiple entry points for deeper learning opportunities in specific areas of need as they develop.
  • A cluster group of students with similar academic needs to support student learning and growth.

Teachers, administrators, and Advanced Academic Resource Teachers (AARTs) work together to provide the following levels of school-based services at the elementary level:

Access to Rigor, Grades K-6 (Level I)

All students have opportunities to think critically, reason, and problem-solve.

  • All teachers use critical and creative thinking strategies in their lessons
  • Classroom teachers provide opportunities using materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework a minimum of once per quarter.

Because Access to Rigor services are for all FCPS students, there is not a screening process.

Subject Specific Advanced Differentiation, Grades K-6(Level II)

Some students require differentiation beyond the needs of age-level peers in their class in at least one specific subject area. Classroom teachers may adjust instruction for students in these areas by:

  • Providing different assignments and resources in those subjects,
  • Grouping students by their strengths, interests, and readiness, and
  • Providing additional challenges using materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework.

Student needs for subject specific differentiation are re-evaluated each year at the local school.

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

Some students have advanced academic abilities in multiple subject areas and require differentiation beyond the needs of age-level peers in their class in multiple content areas.

  • Students work with other students that have similar academic needs through weekly pull-out classes or weekly co-taught lessons with the AART and classroom teacher.
  • Teachers provide frequent opportunities to use materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework in Language Arts, science, social studies, and/or mathematics.

Part-time services continue through Grade 6. Students do not need to be evaluated each year.

Screening for Full-Time (Level IV) Services Screening Timeline for Full-Time Services

Screening for full-time (level IV) AAP services happens at the district/central level rather than by local schools. For your planning for next school year, please know that screening for full-time (level IV) services occurs during two specific screening cycles:

  • Fall screening is available for students who are new to FCPS since January. Fall referrals are due October 15, annually.
  • Spring screening is available for any Grade 2-7 FCPS-enrolled student.  The referral window is from the first day of school - December 15, annually.

For more information, please visit the AAP website at: https://www.fcps.edu/registration/advancedacademics- identification-and-placement/current-fcps-students.

Full-Time Advanced Academic Programs, Grades 3-8 (Level IV)

Some advanced learners need a full-time advanced academic program with differentiated instruction in all four core content areas (Language Arts, mathematics, social studies, and science). Students eligible for full-time AAP services are cluster grouped on a full-time basis and receive:

  • Full-time use of materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework in Language Arts, mathematics, science, and social studies, and
  • Curriculum that is differentiated through acceleration, depth, and complexity of content.

Full-time services continue through Grade 8. Students do not need to be evaluated each year.

Dangers of Fentanyl

Community Meeting on the Dangers of Fentanyl

Last month, the division hosted a conversation on the dangers of fentanyl. During this impactful event, audience members heard testimonials from individuals affected by the opioid epidemic and learned facts from medical experts and law enforcement representatives. 

The conversation will continue on Monday, April 24, 6:30 to 8 p.m., at Woodson High School. Transportation will be available from select schools throughout the county. View the registration page for details.

Salad Bar Returning to WOES Cafeteria Talks Ahead of Salad Bar

We have been hosting grade levels of students for Cafeteria Talks this week. Older White Oaks students were re-introduced to the salad bar rules and routines and students who have never had a salad bar in school were introduced to it for the first time. As a reminder the salad bar begins on Thursday, March 30th.

Students will first go through the salad bar to select any fruits and/or veggies before entering the hot service line. Only hot entrées will be available after the start of the salad bar and hot sides (like french fries, hot corn and green beans) will no longer be served. Students may take a whole salad with protein and a hot entrée for the price of one meal. 

Beginning Thursday, please access the Elementary Lunch Plus Salad Bar menu via nutrislice for current menu options. 

Interested in supporting in the cafeteria as students adjust to the salad bar? Sign up for a volunteer spot here.

Opioid Community Meeting

 

Opioid Awareness Meeting: The Dangers of Fentanyl in Our

Community Substance abuse and related behavioral health problems can have a major impact on students, families, and communities. These impacts have become even more serious because of the increasing prevalence of fentanyl in drugs and other substances. Fentanyl is an incredibly powerful and dangerous opioid. Small amounts of fentanyl can easily lead to life-threatening overdoses. In 2021, fentanyl was identified in 77.14% of U.S. adolescent overdose deaths. There is nothing more important to us than the safety and wellbeing of our students, families, and communities. Fairfax Superintendent Dr. Michelle Reid invites you to join her for a community meeting on opioid awareness, Monday, March 13, 6:30-8 p.m., at Fairfax High School. 

Dr. Reid will be joined by Chief Kevin Davis of the Fairfax County Police Department, in welcoming the community to engage in this important conversation. Major Thea Pirnat of the Fairfax County Organized Crime and Intelligence Bureau will share information about drug trends in Fairfax County.

The Overdose Prevention Initiative: Outreach on Invisible Dangers, led by the United States Attorney’s Office Eastern District of Virginia in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration, will present testimonials from individuals affected by the opioid epidemic, medical experts, and law enforcement representatives.  

Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions about how Fairfax County agencies are working together to address these opioid issues in our community.Watch the video and learn more on our website. Register for the March 13 event.

Reunión de Concienciación sobre los opioides: Los Peligros del Fentanilo en Nuestra Comunidad

El abuso de sustancias y los problemas de salud conductual relacionados pueden tener un gran impacto en los estudiantes, las familias y las comunidades. Estos impactos se han vuelto aún más graves debido a la creciente prevalencia del fentanilo en las drogas y otras sustancias. El fentanilo es un opioide increíblemente potente y peligroso. Pequeñas cantidades de fentanilo pueden provocar fácilmente sobredosis potencialmente mortales. En 2021, el fentanilo se identificó en el 77,14% de las muertes por sobredosis de adolescentes en Estados Unidos

No hay nada más importante para nosotros que la seguridad y el bienestar de nuestros estudiantes, familias y comunidades. 

La Superintendente de Fairfax County Public Schools, la Dra. Michelle Reid le invita a unirse a ella para una reunión de la comunidad sobre la conciencia de opioides, Lunes, 13 de marzo, 6:30-8 p.m., en Fairfax High School. 

La Dra. Reid estará acompañada por el Jefe Kevin Davis del Departamento de Policía del Condado de Fairfax, para dar la bienvenida a la comunidad a participar en esta importante conversación. La Mayor Thea Pirnat de la Oficina de Inteligencia y Crimen Organizado del Condado de Fairfax compartirá información sobre las tendencias de las drogas en el Condado de Fairfax.

La Iniciativa de Prevención de Sobredosis: Outreach on Invisible Dangers, dirigida por la Fiscalía del Distrito Este de Virginia en colaboración con la Administración para el Control de Drogas, presentará testimonios de personas afectadas por la epidemia de opioides, expertos médicos y representantes de las fuerzas del orden.  

Los asistentes tendrán la oportunidad de hacer preguntas sobre cómo los organismos del condado de Fairfax están trabajando juntos para hacer frente a estos problemas de opioides en nuestra comunidad.

Policy 3290 (Sexually Explicit Materials)

Parental Notifications and Policy 3290: Sexually Explicit Content

A Virginia law passed in spring 2022 requires schools to create a policy for parental notification of sexually explicit content/materials. In December 2022, the School Board adopted FCPS Policy 3290: Parental Notification Regarding Instructional Materials with Sexually Explicit Content

FCPS has had policies in place for many years regarding the review of instructional materials, communication with parents, and options for alternative instructional materials.

An expectation of this new policy is the 30-day parental notification requirement of sexually explicit content in instructional materials assigned or selected by teachers. After reviewing the notification letter, parents or caregivers who prefer to choose alternative instructional materials for their child must submit this form to the appropriate teacher within the 30-day notification window. View Policy 3290 for more information.

Notificaciones a los Padres y Política 3290: Contenido Sexualmente Explícito

Una ley de Virginia aprobada en la primavera de 2022 requiere que las escuelas creen una política para la notificación a los padres de contenido/materiales sexualmente explícitos. En Diciembre de 2022, la Junta Escolar adoptó la Política 3290 de FCPS: Notificación a los Padres sobre Materiales de Instrucción con Contenido Sexual Explícito. 

FCPS ha tenido políticas por muchos años con respecto a la revisión de materiales de instrucción, comunicación con los padres, y opciones para materiales de instrucción alternativos

Una expectativa de esta nueva política es el requisito de notificación a los padres de 30 días de contenido sexualmente explícito en los materiales de instrucción asignados o seleccionados por los maestros. Después de revisar la carta de notificación, los padres o cuidadores que prefieran elegir materiales de instrucción alternativos para sus hijos deben presentar este formulario al maestro correspondiente dentro del plazo de notificación de 30 días. Consulte la Política 3290 para obtener más información.
