Maroon 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.
2015 SOL Expedited Retakes
The Virginia Board of Education recently passed a resolution that will allow eligible students the opportunity to retake a grade 3-8 Standards of Learning (SOL) test. Students are permitted what is called an "expedited retake" of a SOL test if they are passing the course associated with the test and:
-    Scored between 375 and 399 on their first attempt; or,
-    Did not pass their first attempt and have extenuating circumstances that warrant retesting; or,
-    Did not sit for the regularly scheduled test for legitimate reasons.

Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) does not endorse excessive or unnecessary testing of students. However, we believe this resolution may allow specific students to benefit from retesting, especially in cases where targeted subject-matter assistance can be provided.
Your child will be given an "expedited retake" permission form today in class.  Please complete this form and return it to your child’s first academic class by Friday, May 8.  Additional forms can be found here: English, Spanish, Arabic, Urdu, Vietnamese.
