End of Year Message

This year we were so excited to have our Ravens back in the nest with us; in person, 5 days a week! While this year continued to be impacted by COVID, the learning, fun and friendships continued at Ravensworth ES. We were thrilled to bring back our favorite traditions like concerts, an author visit, and field days, along with adding the new tradition of welcoming back our Lake Braddock Seniors. As they walked the halls, our hearts were touched as they looked for their former teachers and gave high fives to their siblings or neighborhood friends. It is a testament to the positive relationships and community at Ravensworth ES. We look forward to what next year will bring.  Please be on the lookout for summer communications. We wish everyone a happy and healthy summer! 

 

Sincerely,

 

Erika Aspuria and Patrick Bourjaily

Back to School Immunization Clinics   Medication in the Clinic

The school health room would like to remind families that all medication stored in the clinic must be picked up no later than the student dismissal time on Friday, June 10, the last day of school. Medication left in the clinic after that time will be discarded. It is school policy that medications must be picked up by the parent or guardian. Medication cannot be sent home with your student.  If you have questions, comments, or concerns please call the clinic aide Paula Condit at 703-426-3610.

 

Free and Reduced-Price Meal Applications and Summer Meals

 

The federal waiver allowing all students to receive free and reduced-price meals is set to expire this summer.

Families must submit an application and be approved to be eligible for free and reduced price meals for SY 22-23. For the past two years, the federal government has provided no-cost meals to all public school students without the need to complete the annual Free and Reduced-Price Meal application. However, the extension of the no-cost meals benefit to all students is expected to expire at the end of this school year. I encourage you to submit the Free and Reduced-Price Meal application prior to the first day of the 22-23 school year. The online application will be available later this summer. Watch your email and our website for more information. Learn more about the Free and Reduced-Price Meal program online.

No-cost summer meals will be served at all FCPS summer school locations this year. Please visit the FCPS website for updated information during the summer. 

If you have questions about the Free and Reduced-Price Meals program, the additional benefits your child may receive, or no-cost summer meals, please contact our school 703-426-7000. We are happy to help.

Updated Isolation Procedures for Students

 

Since the start of the pandemic, Fairfax County Public Schools has regularly reviewed and adjusted our health and safety guidance in alignment with recommendations from local, state and national health experts.

Please email Mrs. Aspuria and the attendance email if your child tests positive for Covid-19. Your child may return to in-person instruction and activities, including athletics, when your child has met the following criteria:

  • Student has completed at least five days of isolation; AND 
  • Student is fever free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication; AND
  • Student’s symptoms have improved or resolved
  • Student wears a well-fitting mask for 5 additional days (day six through day 10) after the end of the 5-day isolation period, in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance

If students are unable to wear a mask when around others, they are to continue to isolate for a full 10 days at home.

Children who are in isolation will continue to have access to our StreamIn/CheckIn during this time. 

The new procedure aligns with the timeline recommended by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and Fairfax County Health Department (FCHD). It also follows improving vaccination rates in the Fairfax Health District, as well as a continued community level of low in Fairfax County.

We continue to balance the need for students to have a high-quality in-person learning experience with student and staff safety. By adhering to our layered prevention strategies and increasing vaccination rates, we are all doing our part to keep schools safe.

Updated Isolation Procedures for Students

 

Since the start of the pandemic, Fairfax County Public Schools has regularly reviewed and adjusted our health and safety guidance in alignment with recommendations from local, state and national health experts.

Please email Mrs. Aspuria and the attendance email if your child tests positive for Covid-19. Your child may return to in-person instruction and activities, including athletics, when your child has met the following criteria:

  • Student has completed at least five days of isolation; AND 
  • Student is fever free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication; AND
  • Student’s symptoms have improved or resolved
  • Student wears a well-fitting mask for 5 additional days (day six through day 10) after the end of the 5-day isolation period, in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance

If students are unable to wear a mask when around others, they are to continue to isolate for a full 10 days at home.

Children who are in isolation will continue to have access to our StreamIn/CheckIn during this time. 

The new procedure aligns with the timeline recommended by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and Fairfax County Health Department (FCHD). It also follows improving vaccination rates in the Fairfax Health District, as well as a continued community level of low in Fairfax County.

We continue to balance the need for students to have a high-quality in-person learning experience with student and staff safety. By adhering to our layered prevention strategies and increasing vaccination rates, we are all doing our part to keep schools safe.

This strength means that you value each member of your group and inspire people to do their best. Leadership can be both formal and informal. It is concerned with getting others to do what needs to be done while maintaining group morale to ensure readiness to act in the future. This character strength’s focus is on the personal qualities of leaders, rather than the practice of leadership. These qualities include the ability to understand others and inspire them toward a common goal, the capacity to mitigate conflict and mold consensus, and the desire to lead other people.

PTA Executive Board Needs a Secretary & Communications Director for 2022-2023

 

The PTA Nominating Committee is accepting nominations for positions on the PTA Executive Board for the 2022-2023 school year! We are in need of a Secretary and a Communications Director or Team. If you, or someone you know, are interested in volunteering for open board positions, please contact the nominations committee at [email protected]

Current Board Officers are happy to answer any questions & assist getting you started. Our nomination committee will be present at the meeting on Monday, April 11 and we will be taking nominations until May.

Elections will take place at our June meeting. While all positions accept nominations each year per the PTA bylaws, we must have a nomination for secretary. As of right now, we do not have a secretary for next year and we must fill this position in order to have a PTA at Ravensworth. 

The job of Secretary involves keeping records of the bylaws, attending monthly meetings, taking notes and minutes at meetings and uploading them to Memberhub, as well as any other tasks that are asked of you to help the board as a team. We work closely together and the work is always delegated evenly, if not done together. Lastly, helping organize events and attending events to help them run smoothly.

Communications Director is the person (or team of people) who put out our weekly PTA newsletter, post to our PTA social media and Memberhub.

If you are interested in helping out in other ways or have new ideas for 2022-2023, please let us know. There are several beloved programs & projects that need volunteers and/or a chairperson. Thank you for considering the gift of your time to keep our Ravensworth community strong! #RavensWorth.

Purpose. This strength gives individuals the sense that they are connected with humanity or the universe. People who possess a sense of purpose believe that they were put on earth for a reason. That reason can have all kinds of variety. It could be to create a unique invention, to bring joy through art or music, or to raise their children to become good people. These people have a true calling.
