Fairfax County’s New “Supporting Return to School” (SRS) Program Bolsters Virtual Learning

The program will provide full-day on-site programming for children in Kindergarten through sixth grade, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. The SRS program reflects the County’s and Fairfax County Public Schools' (FCPS) joint commitment to One Fairfax, and to ensuring that all families have equitable access to the services they need to support children’s virtual learning.

SRS will provide support for children’s active and engaged learning during the FCPS virtual academic day and promote children’s social, emotional and physical development. In addition to participating in distance learning, children will have opportunities to explore, engage, relax, and enjoy activities that follow the SRS 2020-21 program curriculum, The Great Outdoors: Road Trips Through the Americas. What a perfect time for a virtual journey and to spend real time outdoors!

The SRS program, located in 37 Fairfax County Public Schools, will serve children of families residing in Fairfax County or the City of Fairfax. A sliding fee scale will be available for income eligible families. Each classroom will have a group of no more than 10 children who will stay together each day, along with consistent staff to support their online learning and in-person connections. Current CDC health and safety guidelines will be implemented.

Enrollment for the SRS program begins August 24, 2020. Space is limited. Additional information on fees and enrollment, including an online registration option, will be available soon at or you may call 703-449-8989.
