We hope you are enjoying your summer break...as strange as it seems. This time is not one we could have imagined six months ago and the next six months will likely be just as unpredictable. As difficult and uncertain as it has been, we are thankful to be on this journey with you. We are committed to you and to your children and will work to innovate, adapt and grow together with you. We will continue to ask for and to serve with grace and compassion as we embark on virtual learning this fall.
Now that we are clear in our path for this first quarter, we will be working on all of the logistics for a successful and exciting start to the year. As the details get figured out, we will share with you all that you need to know. Please know that we will need until later in August to get firm plans in place. Your patience is hugely appreciated. We will have lots to share and lots to be excited about!
Esperamos que estés disfrutando de sus vacaciones de verano ... por extraño que parezca. Esta vez no es una que podríamos haber imaginado hace seis meses y los próximos seis meses probablemente serán igual de impredecibles. Tan difícil e incierto como ha sido, estamos agradecidos de estar en este viaje con ustedes. Estamos comprometidos con ustedes y con sus hijos y trabajaremos para innovar, adaptarnos y crecer junto con ustedes. Continuaremos pidiendo y sirviendo con gracia y compasión mientras nos embarcamos en el aprendizaje virtual este otoño.
Ahora que estamos claros en nuestro camino para este primer trimestre, estaremos trabajando en toda la logística para un comienzo de año exitoso y emocionante. A medida que se resuelvan los detalles, compartiremos con usted todo lo que necesita saber. Tenga en cuenta que necesitaremos hasta más adelante en agosto para establecer planes firmes.

Registration for 2020-2021 Registration of students for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year is to be conducted virtually while schools and offices remain closed. One of the following two processes can be used to conduct a temporary registration:
The Temporary Enrollment Intake Form is intended to be used when gathering registration information for a student whose family has limited access to technology or limited English. It is designed to get the specific information that is needed to generate a student ID number so that a student can be added to the Student Information System (SIS). This form should be completed over the phone and should not be sent via e-mail for parents to complete.
The Enrollment Bundle is the official registration packet and can be sent electronically as a link via e-mail to the parent. This bundle can be used for students whose families have access to technology that allows them to fill out forms online and send them back to the registrar via e-mail.
Note that these are temporary registration processes intended to be used while schools and offices are closed. These are not official registrations since parents will need to finalize the registration process in person to provide an original birth certificate. Parents are also required to provide proof of residency, school records, and proof of all school health entrance requirements as outlined in the Registration Requirements Flyer.
Laptop Update FCPS is working to provide a laptop and wifi access for ALL students. Additional details on this distribution plan will be coming soon. Distribution will happen after August 17th. If your child has a laptop from last school year and will be returning to Terraset in the fall, you will be able to keep it and continue using it for the upcoming year. This is with the exception of rising 6th grade students who need to drop off their laptops next week (see message above) so that they can receive a new laptop after August 17. Congratulations! The Terraset Family would like to publicly congratulate Mrs. Meghan Ehrman on her promotion to Assistant Principal at Fairview Elementary School. What a lucky school community they are. We are grateful for Mrs. Ehrman's service to our Terraset children, families, colleagues and the PTO. We wish her the very best in this exciting new journey. Parent/Caregiver Town Hall - August 6 On Thursday, August 6th from 5-6pm we will be hosting a Question & Answer Town Hall to address questions about the all virtual start at Terraset Elementary for the 2020-2021 school year. The session will take place using Blackboard Collaborate Ultra and can be accessed here: https://us.bbcollab.com/guest/64b7b5d8cbd64968a325e0d403cf200d.

Any FCPS parent may schedule a 30-minute phone consultation with a school psychologist or school social worker, for either themselves or their middle or high school student. Consultations provide an opportunity for parents to receive guidance on how to support their child’s emotional well-being during their time away from school. Student consultations will provide support and strategies to students who may be experiencing difficulties with anxiety, mood, behavior, or peer or family interactions during this unprecedented and challenging time. Note: Parent consultations are available for all grade levels. Student consultations are only available for middle and high school students.
