Blue Day

During the school year, in the event of a school closure, the maroon day/blue day rotation will not change.  For example, if school closed on a Monday, and it was supposed to be a maroon day, Tuesday will become the maroon day. We will continue to alternate blue and maroon from that point on.

Please see the Prince William County Public Schools site for bus schedules.
 
If you need to register your student, please call for an appointment (703)393.7608.

"Be There Prince William"
The School Board signed a resolution designating November as "Be There Prince William" Month.  This suggests a simple way parents can play an active role in preparing their children for success every day.  “Be There Prince William” inspires parents to make ordinary moments extraordinary by connecting with their children during the daily routines of life. Visit bethere.org to read stories submitted from other school divisions and for inspiration.
 
Here is the tip:

It's not an April Fool's joke.  The benefits of connecting with your child every day will last a lifetime.

No es una broma del Dia de April Fool.  Los beneficios de conectarse con su hijo cada dia duraran toda la vida.
