 Have You Completed These Important Forms?

During the first weeks of the school year and when new students are enrolled, schools mail and email caregivers many forms to complete. Several of the most important ones are below:

  1. Digital Resources Consent: Some FCPS-approved digital resources require parent/caregiver consent before they can be used by students. Find the list of resources that require consent on the Digital Resources - Parent Consent page. This page also includes directions on how to provide permission so your child(ren) can access all resources provided by their teachers.
  2. Student Rights and Responsibilities (SR&R): This document explains expectations for student behavior and adult responses. Parents using SIS ParentVUE will be prompted to sign the document when they log in to that platform. A printable version of the document with a signature sheet is available on the SR&R webpage
  3. Opt-Out: The Opt-Out booklet is online or available from your child’s school. It contains information on: 
    1. Parents’ rights to inspect and consent or opt out before their child participates in certain surveys.
    2. Parents’ rights to inspect instructional materials.
    3. Rules regarding student records and disclosure of student information (including photo/video of students) and the right to opt out.
    4. Parents’ rights to opt out of the Social Emotional Learning Screener, physical exams not required by state law, career or social-emotional counseling, Library Equity Access Pass Project, and/or
    5. The process by which complaints may be filed if parents or students believe their rights have been violated.

Paper forms can be signed and returned to your child’s school.


School Supply Lists for 2023-24

We want to help our Willow families continue enjoying the summer, so why not mark “school supply shopping” off your To Do list? 

Ordering your supplies from Campus Survival Kits means you don’t have to run around town searching for that one item or being caught in a shopping frenzy. Also, your student’s teachers will get all of their supplies delivered directly to them for easy classroom storage.

Campus Survival Kits are all teacher approved and curated by our teachers.

Required Forms

There are many tasks and forms for parents/guardians to complete at the beginning of the school year or when registering or transferring from another FCPS school during the school year. We have organized the forms into those required and those that are optional.

Online Verification Update Packet (OVU)

Online Verification Update Packet (OVU) can be accessed from ParentVUE accounts. OVU allows parents to conveniently update phone numbers, emergency contacts, health conditions, and immunization dates for students. It is accessible through ParentVUE accounts.

Returning families or whenever there is a change with existing accounts, please log in to review and update your information before the start of the school year so that we have your family's most up-to-date information.

Parent/Guardian Consent for Digital Resources

Parent/Guardian Consent for Digital Resources

Teachers will use a variety of digital resources to help students learn during the 2023-24 school year. These digital resources have been checked and approved by Fairfax County Public Schools. Please provide your consent for your student to use these resources through the Parent Digital Consent System.

Explanation of Form: As part of our commitment to protect student data, FCPS is required to secure parental permission for student use of software/applications for which FCPS does not have a confidentiality agreement. For ease of access, an online process has been developed to collect this information digitally and provide school-based reporting.

You can find more information about FCPS’ commitment to student privacy at Digital Privacy in FCPS and a list of all approved digital tools is viewable online in the FCPS Digital Ecosystem Library which has links to the vendors’ privacy notices and other useful information.

This permission will expire at the end of this school year and can be revoked at any time by contacting the school.  If you have questions about any of the digital resources listed below, please contact your child’s school.

SR&R Signature Sheet: Required for Each Student

The SR&R handbook is located online in SIS. Parents and guardians are responsible for acknowledging they have received and reviewed the SR&R and should be prompted to do so when they log into their SIS Parent Account. Students will be reviewing the SR&R during the month of September.

Starting in the 2021-22 school year parents/guardians will digitally sign the SR&R in SIS: ParentVUE. Every parent/guardian with a ParentVUE account, regardless of relationship to the student, will see the SR&R upon login to PVUE until the SR&R acknowledgment has been completed.  If a parent chooses, he/she/they may “skip” the SR&R acknowledgment by clicking on “Remind me later!”. The next time the parent/guardian logs in the SR&R acknowledgment will appear again.

The parent/guardian will NOT be required to click on the pdf document link to download/view the SR&R packet before the parent/guardian will be able to digitally sign and acknowledge the SR&R. The name in the digital signature box must match the parent first and last name in SIS exactly before the signature will be accepted.  Confirm the exact match with the "Welcome Message" in the top right of the screen where the parent's name is printed on the screen. 

CLICK on SEND FORM, changes will be updated electronically in our Student Information System (SIS). You do not need to return the paper copy.

Use of SIS: ParentVUE to submit the SR&R signature sheet is preferred.  If you need assistance accessing the SR&R Resources or the Signature Sheet please contact the school for guidance.
