First Day of School -August 22 School Immunization Requirements

As we begin to look ahead to the 2022-23 school year, we encourage everyone to Be Wise, Immunize! Immunizations are required for public school entry and help keep children protected from many diseases. Many children missed their well check-ups and their recommended childhood immunizations during recent years of disruptions from COVID-19. It is critical to catch up now to keep children healthy and protect them from serious diseases.

We encourage you to check with your healthcare provider to make sure your child is up to date on required immunizations for the 2022-23 school year as soon as possible. If your child needs a vaccine to complete their records, you can make an appointment with your healthcare provider or visit the Fairfax County Health Department website for a schedule of child immunization clinics. 

Remember to request documentation of your child’s immunizations and bring that to Hayfield Elementary as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].

Introducing Seamus O'Connor

Good morning Hawk Families,

We are excited to share that our new Assistant Principal is Mr. Seamus O’Connor. Mr. O’Connor is coming to HES from Falls Church City Public Schools where he is currently serving as the Director of Special Education Instruction. Here is a little bit about him:

Seamus O'Connor is a proud FCPS graduate, now in his 15th year as an educator. He has experience as a classroom special education teacher, school administrator, instructional specialist, and director of specialized instruction and behavior services. Mr. O'Connor loves cheering for the Nationals and coaching Little League. He does not like admitting that his 8-year-old can beat him at Wordle, but it is true. Mr. O'Connor likes to be called "Mr. OC" and is excited to learn the names of everyone in the Hawk NEST!

We look forward to welcoming Mr. O’Connor in the next couple of weeks and for him to meet all of our students and families.

Sincerely,

Jessica Lewis

Principal

Teacher Requests at HES for the 2022-2023 School Year

As we begin planning for the next school year, one of our most challenging tasks is creating class groupings. It is very important to have balanced classes that reflect the diversity of our students. These decisions are made with input from your child’s current teacher. We ask parents who have special considerations to submit their requests in writing, telling us about your child’s learning style, strengths and weaknesses. You may also want to list characteristics of a teacher that would best match your student’s needs. Requests for specific teachers will not be honored. All requests should be emailed to [email protected] We appreciate, in advance, your support and cooperation with this process.

End of Year Medication Pickup

The school health room is reminding parents and guardians that all medication stored in the health room must be picked up no later than the student dismissal time on the last day of school (June 10). Medication left in the health room after that time will be discarded. It is school policy that medications must be picked up by the parent or guardian. Medication cannot be sent home with your student. However, with parent or guardian permission, a high school student may transport over-the-counter medications to and from the school health room.

Medication authorization forms for next school year may be obtained from the school or online at https://www.fcps.edu/resources/student-safety-and-wellness/school-health-services. A medication authorization form is required for any medication, prescription or over-the-counter, to be kept at school. Please be sure medication orders are clear. All information on the form must be completed. Part I must be signed and dated by the parent or guardian. Part II must be signed and dated by your physician. Over-the-counter medication given for headache, muscle pain, orthodontic pain, or menstrual cramps and antibiotic or anti-viral medication do not need a physician signature. More detailed information is available on the back of the medication authorization form.

Over-the-counter medication must be in the original container and clearly labeled by the parent or guardian. All prescription medication, including physician’s samples, must be labeled by the pharmacist or physician. Please make sure that the label clearly states your student’s name, the name of the medication, the dosage of the medication, and the time interval for administration.

If your child will be enrolled in a summer program sponsored by Fairfax County Public Schools, your existing long-term medication authorization form(s) may be used for the summer program. Please let the health room know if you would like a copy of the form(s).

Your cooperation will ensure that we can safely give your student his or her medication. If you have any questions, please contact your school health room aide, at 703-924-4510, or your school public health nurse at 703-704-6128. Thank you for your cooperation and have a good summer.

Good evening Hayfield Families,

It is with great excitement that we share the following news with you!

The Region 4 Office is pleased to announce that Ms. Samantha Goldstein, Assistant Principal at Hayfield Elementary School, has been selected as the new principal of Fairview Elementary School, effective July 1, 2022.

Ms. Goldstein is a proud product of Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) as a graduate of Hayfield Secondary School. She started her educational career at FCPS at Gunston Elementary School where for eight years, she served as a third, fifth and sixth grade teacher. She then joined Region 4 at Laurel Hill Elementary School as a fifth grade teacher for two years. She went on to serve as the assistant principal at Hayfield Elementary School, where she has been for the past seven years. During this time, she also served as the Extended School Year (ESY) principal at Hayfield ES.

As the Assistant Principal at Hayfield ES, Ms. Goldstein has proven herself to be a people person who builds strong, trusting relationships with families and staff.  In her role as an assistant principal, she prioritized learning about special education and has become skilled in working with families whose children have IEPs, helping to navigate the process in the best interest of serving the student. Ms. Goldstein has worked at schools that have a diverse community of learners. She has implemented the CLT processes and FCPS best practices to meet these different student needs, while also providing support to the faculty and staff.

Ms. Goldstein is ready to work alongside teachers to continue to improve instruction and academic outcomes for students.  She will use her strong collaboration skills to focus on teacher efficacy, equity, student achievement and social emotional wellness. She is committed to fostering a positive school climate and engaging with all stakeholders.

Ms. Goldstein is honored to serve as the principal of Fairview Elementary School. She looks forward to meeting and working with the school faculty and staff this summer to prepare for the upcoming school year. She is excited to welcome Fairview Falcons into the school building this fall.  In her spare time, Ms. Goldstein loves spending time with her husband, two children, and puppy.  She loves to be outdoors, especially on the beach.

Ms. Goldstein holds a Master of Education in Educational Leadership and a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, both degrees from Lynchburg College.

Please join me in welcoming Ms. Samantha Goldstein as the new principal at Fairview Elementary School.

Sincerely, Penny

End of Year Medication Pickup

The school health room is reminding parents and guardians that all medication stored in the health room must be picked up no later than the student dismissal time on the last day of school (June 10). Medication left in the health room after that time will be discarded. It is school policy that medications must be picked up by the parent or guardian. Medication cannot be sent home with your student. However, with parent or guardian permission, a high school student may transport over-the-counter medications to and from the school health room.

Medication authorization forms for next school year may be obtained from the school or online at https://www.fcps.edu/resources/student-safety-and-wellness/school-health-services. A medication authorization form is required for any medication, prescription or over-the-counter, to be kept at school. Please be sure medication orders are clear. All information on the form must be completed. Part I must be signed and dated by the parent or guardian. Part II must be signed and dated by your physician. Over-the-counter medication given for headache, muscle pain, orthodontic pain, or menstrual cramps and antibiotic or anti-viral medication do not need a physician signature. More detailed information is available on the back of the medication authorization form.

Over-the-counter medication must be in the original container and clearly labeled by the parent or guardian. All prescription medication, including physician’s samples, must be labeled by the pharmacist or physician. Please make sure that the label clearly states your student’s name, the name of the medication, the dosage of the medication, and the time interval for administration.

If your child will be enrolled in a summer program sponsored by Fairfax County Public Schools, your existing long-term medication authorization form(s) may be used for the summer program. Please let the health room know if you would like a copy of the form(s).

Your cooperation will ensure that we can safely give your student his or her medication. If you have any questions, please contact your school health room aide, at 703-924-4510, or your school public health nurse at 703-704-6128. Thank you for your cooperation and have a good summer.

For Our Military Families

Check our website to see how we celebrated our military students last week:

“Month of the Military Child” - I hope our Military Students have enjoyed our HES activities this month in celebration of “Month of the Military Child”. Military students have been featured in their classrooms and through various military themed displays and artwork decorating our hallways. “Purple Up for Military Kids Day” was a great success. Many HES students, teachers, and staff proudly wore their purple and purple shirts to support and honor military kids. Check out the HES website for a slideshow of highlights. HES military students were also presented with a “Certificate of Recognition” from FCPS Superintendent Scott S. Brabrand, “in honor of their service as military connected students to their school, community, and nation”.
