Welcome, South County Mustangs!

We want to make sure all South County Middle School students have the opportunity to participate in our After School Program. Every student who participates in our Virtual After School Program must have a registration form on file. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me, Chris Woodby at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Picture Day - December 7th
SCMS students can sign up to have their school picture taken on Monday, December 7th. Please arrive as close to your assigned time as possible.

Remember to stay 6 ft apart while in line and masks are required.

COVID-19 Health Metrics
In making determinations regarding in-person instruction, FCPS will consider the Centers for Disease Control Core Indicators. View the data.
In-School Instruction – Form Needed
Parents/guardians who chose in-school instruction for their child will receive a health screening commitment form where you will agree to completing a daily health screening prior to sending your student to school. Forms must be received at school electronically or by hard copy before your child returns to in-school instruction. Students whose parent/guardian have not returned a signed form will be required to complete a health screening and have their temperature taken daily by school staff until the form is received.
No-Cost Meals for All FCPS Students through June 30, 2021
Grab and Go service hours are 8 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (excluding holidays). Bus routes for food distribution are operating Monday through Friday. Breakfast and lunch will be available at no-cost Monday-Friday at all schools with in-person instruction. Specific information about meal distribution locations and bus distribution schedules are available.
Parent Technology Help Desk
To support families who are working with their children during distance learning, Fairfax County Public Schools now has a Parent Technology Help Desk. The number is 1-833-921-3277 (833-921-FCPS). It will be answered by staff 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. If the help desk is unable to solve the issue on the phone with the parent or guardian, they will enter a ticket on the parent’s behalf and the request for help will be transferred to the appropriate FCPS team.
Report safety issues online or by text message using the Safety Tipline. You may choose to identify yourself or remain anonymous.
