Welcome, Edison Eagles!
Health Commitment & Screening for Returning Students
The Parent Health Commitment Form and Daily Health Screening information and details about mask requirements for students are found here.
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.
COVID-19 Health Metrics
In making determinations regarding in-person instruction, FCPS will consider the Centers for Disease Control Core Indicators. View the data.
Your initial payment is 50 dollars and it pays for your cap and gown, tassel, diploma, diploma cover and seals.
If we hold graduation at Eagle Bank Arena and are able to have any other senior events such as Senior Picnic, then additional dues will be collected at a later date.
How to Pay

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.

EHS Recognized for Improvement Achievement
We have been recognized for high student achievement or continuous improvement by the Virginia Board of Education. This award is based on performance and practice during 2018-19 and prior years. We were honored based on the following criteria:
• A 10-point increase in the combined rate in reading and math, and in the pass rate in science;
• A 10-point increase in the combined rate in reading and math for two or more student groups across three years;
• A decrease in the chronic absenteeism rate for three years; or
• For schools with a graduating class, an increase in the Graduation and Completion Index and a decrease in the dropout rate for three years.
We appreciate that the support of our Edison families to their children’s education is critically important in reaching this milestone.
