These showings are typically shown once per month. All ticket sales information is on the theater's website. Please contact our school if you would like more information about this program.

Rising Six Graders Tdap Requirement

The Tdap booster vaccine is required for sixth grade students before the start of school in September 2015. Please give written documentation of this immunization to your school nurse once your child receives the vaccine. If your child has not received this immunization before the end of school in June, you will need to give the documentation to the middle school staff. Meeting this requirement as soon as possible will help your child have a smooth transition to middle school.


Unfortunately, no sixth grade student will receive their home room assignment until the Middle school has written verification of the Tdap immunization. These students will be excluded from school in September until immunization requirement is satisfied. Even if your student is only 10 yrs old in September, they will need to get the 10 yr old vaccine. 

Please contact Mrs. Peoples, our school nurse, if you have any questions.

Family Life Education Program (opt-out process)

The parent letter/opt-out form is part of the PWCS student "Code of Behavior & Forms." Objectives by grade level are posted on the Science and Family Life Education Web page at science.departments.pwcs.edu/ (choose the Family Life Education button). Parents should visit the site and review the objectives for their child's grade level or course. Parents may exercise opt-out for any of the FLE sensitive content by returning the opt-out form to the appropriate teacher any time during the school year but preferably within the first month of school.

Questions about the FLE program or the opt-out procedure may be directed to Kathy Keesee, administrative coordinator, Science and Family Life Education, at 703.791.7848 or lanzafk@pwcs.edu. Or you can all our Ashland School Counselors, Mrs. Reese or Mr. Carter, at 703.583.8774 with any questions.


 
Being Prepared!

The Prince William County Public School Division has established crisis management plans and policies for how all types of potential crises are to be handled. Crisis management is part of the School Division's approach to school safety. It anticipates potential problems and establishes a coordinated response to minimize the stress and disruptions a crisis might bring to bear on the School Division and the community. Each school has emergency and contingency plans in place to respond to different types of events as they occur. Each school has also established a Crisis Response Team (CRT) that is an integral part of the school's emergency management plan. The School Division works closely with local law enforcement agencies to coordinate responses to particular incidents.

Ashland as well as all of the schools in the Division implements and practices safety drills to be prepared at all times for emergencies. We started these drills this week very successfully. Our number one priority is keeping students, staff, and visitors safe at all times.

If you are interested in more information about our crisis procedures, please check out this video prepared by our Risk Management and Security Services.




 

 
Military-Connected Family Survey

Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) received a DoDEA grant to help military-connected students and their family transition into PWCS and provide specific support to military-connected families. To that end, PWCS recently hired a Military Student Transition Consultant (MSTC) from the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC). At this time, the consultant will be working initially with families from Ashland, Henderson, and Pattie Elementary Schools as she develops a military-connected transition program for the entire School Division.

In an effort to serve you better, we are asking you to complete this short survey. Your feedback is important and will be used when determining the type of support and resources that would be most beneficial to your family. Your participation in completing this survey is voluntary but strongly encouraged. All information that you disclose in this survey will be kept confidential within PWCS. Anonymized and summary data will be given to a 3rd party evaluator to ensure we are meeting the grant’s goals.

If you have any questions about this survey or the program, please feel free to contact Darlene Friedline at friedld@pwcs.edu , or Carolyn Juba at jubacm@pwcs.edu .
