Laptops for Irving Middle School Students

We are excited to share that every Irving Middle School student will be checked out a laptop to use throughout the 2021-2022 school year through the FCPSOn program. We will be sharing more information about the check out process later in the summer. During the checkout process, students will receive a laptop, charger, and computer sleeve. We look forward to being able to provide this resource for all of our students.

The Irving MS Summer READ! Program, which runs from June 12th -August 22nd, gives students a lot of choice in what they read.  While logged into their Google account, students may view a choice board that lists many different types of things that students can opt to read.  Completing a choice board square and filling out a Google Form about what they read earns the student one (1) ticket. 

Each ticket serves as one (1) entry in the drawing for prizes that will happen at the beginning of the school year.   Students can earn up to 24 tickets throughout the summer.  Four students’ names will be chosen to receive $25 Barnes and Noble gift cards.  A student may only win one (1) gift card.

Library News

BRING THEM BACK:  We’re calling for all library items to be returned as soon as possible.  Items borrowed by students may be returned ANY weekday, from around 7:45 until 1:15 (to avoid bus congestion).  There is a big, metal book return that sits right inside the school’s main entrance.  In-person students may simply bring their books to the library for return.

Please check for ANY FCPS books that might be in your home.  Many things were not returned from when students borrowed items as 6th graders in their elementary schools.  Please help us get all of these materials back to their proper schools so that other students can enjoy them.

First Day of the 2021-2022 School Year

Thank you

Dear Irving Families - 

Thank you for being flexible through all of the starts and stops of this unique school year. Thank you for being innovative and daring as we embarked together on a Schoology Pilot Adventure. Thank you for being patient as we navigated uncharted times in FCPS and education. Thank you for being and teaching your children how to be resilient over the past year. Finally, thank you for supporting our teachers and staff this year as they gave their all to teach our students, while also caring for their families. 

We are very excited for the possibilities ahead for the 2021-2022 school year and having all of our students return to the school building, 5-days a week! We have an amazingly dedicated staff who will be taking a much deserved break this summer and also planning and preparing for our students’ return in the fall. We will continue to focus on ensuring students have a solid foundation in the Portrait of a Graduate attributes and skills so they are prepared for high school and beyond. 

Over the summer, the only thing we ask students to do is take a break and read throughout the break. I wish you all a safe and relaxing break! 

Take care!

Cindy Conley

Proud Principal

Substance Abuse Prevention Newsletter

The end of the school year and summer are both right around the corner. This means end-of-year celebrations, graduation parties, summer BBQs, and a lot of time either spent at home or with friends. This could also mean opportunities for your child to use and misuse substances.

Each school pyramid has a Substance Abuse Prevention Specialist (SAPS) assigned to provide substance abuse prevention, education, and intervention services. Substance Abuse Prevention Specialists are part of the FCPS Office of Student Safety and Wellness.

To read more about resources available, please see the Spring issue of the Substance Abuse Newsletter by clicking HERE

It Could Happen To Any of Us - The Truth About Opioids and Xanax

Tech Tips Parents’ Ultimate Guides

Do you find that you struggle to keep up with the media and tech your kids are using? Common Sense Media's Parents' Ultimate Guides can help you stay up to date on all the latest titles and trends. Whether you're trying to figure out if a new app is safe for your teen or if a popular game includes blood and gore, Common Sense Media has you covered.

Preparing for SOLs

Please make sure your child’s school loaned laptop is working properly: the screen is intact (not cracked), and all keys are working. Please also have your child restart their laptop to update it completely. Shutting it down and turning it back on is not the same as restarting it. Restarts are the only way to ensure necessary updates. If your child’s school loaned laptop needs to be repaired, please contact our Technology Specialist, Steve Snow at smsnow@fcps.edu as soon as possible. Students may not use their personal devices to take a SOL exam. We will have laptops for students to use each day of testing if they did not check out a school laptop.

  • Additional Reminders: 
    • Please bring your laptop charger to school on your SOL day.
    • Please bring a paper book to read when you finish your SOL and while you are waiting for the testing session to end.
In-Person Technology Reminders

Bring your school-issued laptop to each day that you are in school. We cannot support or troubleshoot personal devices.

  1. Please shutdown and plug-in the laptop each night so that it is fully charged for the school day.
  2. Bring the laptop, laptop charger and headphones or earbuds to school each in-person day.
  3. Restart your laptop each day when you are in school in order to update your laptop completely. A restart is not the same as turning it off/on or logging off/on. Restarts are the only way to ensure necessary updates.

Substance Abuse Prevention Newsletter

The end of the school year and summer are both right around the corner. This means end-of-year celebrations, graduation parties, summer BBQs, and a lot of time either spent at home or with friends. This could also mean opportunities for your child to use and misuse substances.

Each school pyramid has a Substance Abuse Prevention Specialist (SAPS) assigned to provide substance abuse prevention, education, and intervention services. Substance Abuse Prevention Specialists are part of the FCPS Office of Student Safety and Wellness.

Library News

The LAST DAY FOR CURBSIDE PICK-UP is Monday, May 24th.  Any virtual student who wants to pick up a book on this date must place the item on hold using the library catalog asap.  Items borrowed by students may be returned ANY weekday, from around 7:45 until 1:15 (to avoid bus congestion).  There is a big, metal book return that sits right inside the school’s main entrance.

COMING SOON:  Look in next week’s newsletter for information about Irving’s Summer READ! Program.  Rising 7th graders and 8th graders will have the opportunity to read a variety of books and will even get to have their name entered in a drawing for Barnes and Noble gift cards.  Stay tuned!

All students, virtual or in-person students need to begin returning any library materials that are still at home.  Many current 7th grade students still have items that they borrowed from their elementary schools during the 2019-2020 school year.  Please help us get all of these materials back to their proper schools so that other students can enjoy them.

Tech Tips Parents’ Ultimate Guides

Do you find that you struggle to keep up with the media and tech your kids are using? Common Sense Media's Parents' Ultimate Guides can help you stay up to date on all the latest titles and trends. Whether you're trying to figure out if a new app is safe for your teen or if a popular game includes blood and gore, Common Sense Media has you covered.

Preparing for SOLs

Please make sure your child’s school loaned laptop is working properly: the screen is intact (not cracked), and all keys are working. Please also have your child restart their laptop to update it completely. Shutting it down and turning it back on is not the same as restarting it. Restarts are the only way to ensure necessary updates. If your child’s school loaned laptop needs to be repaired, please contact our Technology Specialist, Steve Snow at smsnow@fcps.edu as soon as possible. Students may not use their personal devices to take a SOL exam. We will have laptops for students to use each day of testing if they did not check out a school laptop.

  • Additional Reminders: 
    • Please bring your laptop charger to school on your SOL day.
    • Please bring a paper book to read when you finish your SOL and while you are waiting for the testing session to end.
In-Person Technology Reminders

Bring your school-issued laptop to each day that you are in school. We cannot support or troubleshoot personal devices.

  1. Please shutdown and plug-in the laptop each night so that it is fully charged for the school day.
  2. Bring the laptop, laptop charger and headphones or earbuds to school each in-person day.
  3. Restart your laptop each day when you are in school in order to update your laptop completely. A restart is not the same as turning it off/on or logging off/on. Restarts are the only way to ensure necessary updates.
After School Program Save the Date for Irving Academy!

Eating Disorder Parent Information

The Code of Virginia, 22.1-273.2 requires Virginia Public Schools to provide, on an annual basis, parent educational information regarding eating disorders for pupils in grades five through twelve. According to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA 2020):

Eating disorders are serious but treatable mental and physical illnesses that can affect people of all genders, ages, races, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, body shapes, and weights. While no one knows for sure what causes eating disorders, a growing consensus suggests that it is a range of biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors. Eating disorders are not fads or phases, and can have serious consequences for health, productivity, and relationships.

Eating disorders can develop or re-emerge at any age. Eating disorder specialists are reporting an increase in the diagnosis of children, some as young as five or six. Many eating disorder sufferers report that their thoughts and behaviors started much earlier than anyone realized, sometimes even in early childhood. Although most people report the onset of their eating disorder in their teens and young adulthood, there is some evidence that people are being diagnosed at younger ages.

In collaboration with the Fairfax County Health Department, FCPS has developed eating disorder documents with detailed information to be provided to parents and guardians of Fairfax County Public Schools. The letter and fact sheet have been translated and posted on the following webpage: http://fcpsnet.fcps.edu/ssse/translations/dss-healthmedical.htm.

Eating Disorder Parent Information

The Code of Virginia, 22.1-273.2 requires Virginia Public Schools to provide, on an annual basis, parent educational information regarding eating disorders for pupils in grades five through twelve. According to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA 2020):

Eating disorders are serious but treatable mental and physical illnesses that can affect people of all genders, ages, races, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, body shapes, and weights. While no one knows for sure what causes eating disorders, a growing consensus suggests that it is a range of biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors. Eating disorders are not fads or phases, and can have serious consequences for health, productivity, and relationships.

Eating disorders can develop or re-emerge at any age. Eating disorder specialists are reporting an increase in the diagnosis of children, some as young as five or six. Many eating disorder sufferers report that their thoughts and behaviors started much earlier than anyone realized, sometimes even in early childhood. Although most people report the onset of their eating disorder in their teens and young adulthood, there is some evidence that people are being diagnosed at younger ages.

In collaboration with the Fairfax County Health Department, FCPS has developed eating disorder documents with detailed information to be provided to parents and guardians of Fairfax County Public Schools. The letter and fact sheet have been translated and posted on the following webpage: http://fcpsnet.fcps.edu/ssse/translations/dss-healthmedical.htm.

Library News

The next Curbside Pick-up date will be April 26th, from noon until 3 pm. 

8th graders who have long-overdue items from their 7th grade year were messaged this week about what items are still on loan to them.  Please either return books or email to report them as lost.  No fines or replacement fees are associated with these loans.

Virtual students, plan to return ANY overdue library books if you come to school for SOL testing.  

In-person students should be returning books to the library on the days they are in the school building.  

If you need some more reading material at any time, remember that students can always log into Mackinvia.com to borrow ebooks or audiobooks.  

Tech Tips Preparing for SOLs

Please make sure your child’s school loaned laptop is working properly: the screen is intact (not cracked), and all keys are working. Please also have your child restart their laptop to update it completely. Shutting it down and turning it back on is not the same as restarting it. Restarts are the only way to ensure necessary updates. If your child’s school loaned laptop needs to be repaired, please contact our Technology Specialist, Steve Snow at smsnow@fcps.edu as soon as possible. Students may not use their personal devices to take a SOL exam. We will have laptops for students to use each day of testing if they did not check out a school laptop.

In-Person Technology Reminders

Bring your school-issued laptop to each day that you are in school. We cannot support or troubleshoot personal devices.

  1. Please shutdown and plug-in the laptop each night so that it is fully charged for the school day.
  2. Bring the laptop, laptop charger and headphones or earbuds to school each in-person day.
  3. Restart your laptop each day when you are in school in order to update your laptop completely. A restart is not the same as turning it off/on or logging off/on. Restarts are the only way to ensure necessary updates. 
Digital Resource Parent Permission

We are almost there!! Thanks to the many parents/guardians who have already given permission for their child to use digital resources at Irving. It is imperative that we have consent for all students. If you have not yet provided this consent, please use the first link below to provide your consent today and the second link if you wish to view the list of digital resources at Irving. Thank you!
