Fairfax County Public Schools' Notification System
|FCPS is using a subscription-based email communication tool called News You Choose for distribution of "non-critical" e-mail communications such as newsletters, events, news updates, and other topics. This tool replaces Keep in Touch Plus.|
Parents of Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) students and employees of the school system are automatically enrolled to receive e-Notify Communications. FCPS central offices and schools use this system to communicate emergency, delayed opening and school closing information, attendance, and other essential communications. Contact information from the student information system and the employee databases are uploaded to the Blackboard Connect system. It is important that parents keep their child’s emergency contact information up to date. Parents should whitelist to ensure they receive important messages from their children's school and the district.
Updating Contact Information
Parents may view and update their child's emergency and contact information online through weCare@School, a feature of FCPS 24-7 Learning (Blackboard). Parents may also direct requests to update student contact information to the student information assistant at their child's school office.
Employees may view and update their contact information through UConnect.
