Student Health

If your student is not feeling well, we ask that you please keep them home. They may still access the class virtually. 

If your child will be absent from school, please email Primary's attendance at @email or call 703-781-2750 with the reason why your child is absent. Please be specific about the reason why your child will not be attending.

Parent Approval Needed for Digital Resources!


At Fort Belvoir Elementary, our teachers will use a variety of digital resources to support student learning and promote communication and collaboration with students and families. Some of the digital resources your child may use this year will require your consent before they can be used. You can find our school’s list of the resources that require parental consent here.

Included on this page is also a link to a form where the enrolling parent or guardian will need to indicate whether or not their student is allowed to use the list of digital resources this year. Please note, that the form will need to be filled in for each enrolled child. This page also provides more information about how FCPS carefully reviews digital resources for approval and why we must request your consent before using certain tools. We encourage you to complete the parental consent for digital resources form as soon as possible, as your child will not be able to use the digital resources until we have received your permission. Please reach out to your child’s teacher or our School Based Technology Specialists Rejane Martinez (Upper School) or Lauren Damico (Primary School) if you have questions or concerns about the digital resources we’ve chosen to use this year.

Technology Support for Families

technology support

The FCPS Technology Resource page provides tip sheets and support in multiple languages. These tip sheets provide answers to basic questions about FCPS technologies. Often you can find the answer to your question in these resources. For technical support questions about your online parent accounts, your student’s FCPS laptop, or technology your student uses for online learning, contact the Parent Technology Help Desk (toll free) at 833-921-3277 or enter a support request ticket via the Parent and Student IT Portal.

The Parent Technology Help Desk will be answered 7 a.m.-11 p.m., seven days a week. Parents who need help in a language other than English should let help desk staff know, and an interpreter will join them on the line. (FCPS has Parent Information Phone Lines available in eight languages to assist with general questions about FCPS.)

Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT)

Visit the website to read updated information

  • Regardless of currently receiving FCPS Grab & Go meals, eligible students must qualify for free or reduced-price meals.
    • To receive the benefits apply here.
  • Qualifying students will receive P-EBT benefits through the 2020-2021 school year.
  • Households that previously received P-EBT will have new benefits automatically added to their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) EBT or P-EBT card.
    • Benefits Expansion - The P-EBT program has been extended through the end of 2020-2021 academic school year. Retroactive benefits for October through January will be issued to eligible remote and hybrid students.
    • Eligibility Expansion - Households with students attending public schools under a hybrid modality are now eligible to receive P-EBT benefits. Previously, P-EBT benefits were only available to students who were learning remotely for five consecutive days. The P-EBT program will now issue benefits to students whose schools are open and operating under both approved modalities (hybrid and remote). School districts have communicated information directly to eligible households. If you are unsure if your child is eligible for P-EBT benefits, please review our Frequently Asked Questions.
  • If you are newly eligible, a P-EBT card will be mailed to you or funds will be added to your SNAP EBT card.
