Super Snacks Are Back!!

The activities office and the FCPS office of Food and Nutrition Services are pleased to offer the return of the after-school snacks program, Super Snacks. FCPS is participating in the CACFP (Child and Adult Care Food Program) to be able to provide the snacks free of charge :)

Students participating in any after school activity can stop by room C36 (storage room across from Boys PE locker room) and pick up a nutritious snack each day of the week. 

This is a great opportunity to bridge the gap between meals and provide for sustained energy during after school activities!

Your Questions Answered on the Student-Athlete Vaccination Requirement

Fairfax County Public Schools requires student-athletes be vaccinated for the COVID-19 virus for the winter and spring sports seasons as an additional safety measure to support our layered prevention strategies.

Students who are 16 years of age or older (age as of November 8 for Winter Season) who are unvaccinated and do not have either a medical or religious exemption will not be able to participate in team activities.  

In addition, unvaccinated students who are 12 -15 years of age who do not provide a weekly negative Covid-19 test will not able to participate in team activities. 

Currently FCPS is working on securing a vendor to assist with providing access to weekly testing for athletes.  We will share more information as it becomes available. 

FCPS and Justice High School is currently working on procedures for student athletes to submit proof . Stay tuned!

Thanks for your patience while we worked out the operational aspects of this new requirement. Read the FAQs to learn more about the timeline, how vaccination status will be verified, exceptions, safety, and more.

Justice Junction - Community News & Updates - September 19, 2021

GovDelivery 4 days 23 hours ago

September 19, 2021                                                                            

 

Hello Justice HS Students, Families, and Community Members:

We are entering our 5th week of school and as Principal, I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude for your continued flexibility, patience, and commitment to our school community as we navigate through these unique times.   My goal is to stay consistent with our communication efforts and your ongoing support and feedback serve as an important tool to keep up the good things happening at Justice HS, in addition to implementing improvements throughout the school year.

Unfortunately, our school and schools across FCPS this past week have been impacted by this latest TikTok trend, including here in Region 2.  Some examples of these destructive acts include vandalism to soap dispensers, toilets, stalls, and paper towel dispensers in student bathrooms.  We need your support in reminding students of the consequences associated with destruction of school property.  Students who vandalize school property are violating the FCPS Student Rights and Responsibilities and will face disciplinary action and we will not tolerate this behavior for our school community. 

COVID mitigation and keeping transmission rates low, continue to be a priority at Justice HS. We will continue to keep the community in the loop on our efforts. The Fairfax County Health Department announced a change in their communication process for students waiting for COVID-19 contact interviews. You may read about these changes on the FCHD website. You may also wish to review the FCHD FAQs for parents of school-aged children. We appreciate the continued partnership between FCPS and FCHD. 

This past week we observed Yom Kippur and also started celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month, which goes through October 15th.  At Justice HS we recognize the achievements and contributions of Hispanic American influencers who have inspired others to achieve success.  This week we will conduct our virtual/asynchronous Back to School Night.  Additional information will be provided below.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Tiffany I. Narcisse, Principal

Justice High School

703-824-3900 | https://justicehs.fcps.edu/

Lockdown Drill - This Week: Keeping students and staff safe is a priority at Justice High School. This week we will conduct our first lockdown drill of the school year.  Your student may come home and talk about their experience during the drill.  We encourage you to talk with your student about the importance of being prepared for emergencies. Here are some helpful tips for families to use to support their students before and after school lockdown drills. Working together, we create a safe, secure environment for students to learn and grow in our schools. 

 

Back to School Night – Wednesday, September 22nd: This year’s BTSN will be conducted virtually through asynchronous videos and other pertinent information posted by your child’s teachers.  BTSN links and videos can be accessed via our Justice HS website https://justicehs.fcps.edu/ beginning at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, September 22nd.  An additional eNotify will be sent on Tuesday and Wednesday with reminders and access to the links. These links will remain up all year long for your accessibility and ongoing refence.

 

College Planning Night for the Class of 2022: Will be held virtually on Wednesday, September 29, 2021, from 6:30 pm-8:00 pm. Parents and students are invited to hear about key timelines, procedures, and resources to support the Class of 2022 through the college application process. Registration is required by submitting your RSVP on this page. The virtual link and instructions will be emailed to all registered participants within 48 hours of the program using the email provided on this RSVP form.

PSAT/NMSQT and SAT School Day:

In Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) and across the United States, students in grades 10 and 11 will take a Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) on October 13, 2021. All FCPS students will receive a free score report.  Registration is not required. Only students in grade 11 are eligible to compete for the National Merit Scholarship; however, taking the PSAT/NMSQT in grade 10 provides student practice.

 

The PSAT/NMSQT is a standardized test designed to promote college readiness while preparing students for college entrance assessments. It measures evidence-based reading, writing and language, and mathematics with a focus on reasoning skills, knowledge, and comprehension. These are all skills that are important for college and career readiness.

All FCPS students have access to Khan Academy’s free online test preparation, whether they are taking the PSAT for the first time or preparing for eleventh grade National Merit Scholarship qualification.  This resource was shared with your student in early September. 

  • All high schools and secondary schools will operate on a 2-hour early release schedule to provide professional development for staff and/or to allow teacher-directed time for collaborative team meetings, lesson planning activities, etc. 
  • Grade 9 students will receive asynchronous virtual learning, focused on high school transition activities. Instructional resources to support these transition activities will be provided to Career Plan Liaisons. 
  • Grade 12 students who returned an intent to participate form will take the SAT exam; October 13 will be an unscheduled day for grade 12 students who are not testing, unless the student chooses to engage in another approved activity, such as civic engagement or college visits.
  • Transportation is available to all eligible FCPS students participating in PSAT or SAT exams including those testing with extended time accommodations. The school test coordinator will contact families directly with this information. 
  • High school academy courses will not be held on October 13, and shuttles are canceled.
  • Breakfast and a grab and go lunch will be provided.

More logistical information will be communicated to families and students about PSAT and SAT School Day in the coming weeks.  

In the meantime, be on the lookout for an e-notify related to a PSAT pre-survey opt out form due October 8.

If you have immediate questions or concerns, please contact the PSAT/SAT School Day Coordinator – Shelley Terry at sdterry@fcps.edu.

Justice Junction - Community News & Updates - September 13, 2021

GovDelivery 1 week 3 days ago

September 13, 2021

 

Hello Justice HS Students, Families, and Community Members:

Since we began the school year, I have had the privilege of visiting many of our classrooms to meet with teachers and students.  Our teachers have gotten creative by using some amazing outdoor learning spaces and creative ways to reconnect students with one another. 

Last week I met with students during our individual class meetings to discuss the importance of wearing face masks properly, appropriate school attire, and getting to class on time during transitions.  Students were also offered information about our upcoming Homecoming Week, prepared and presented by our SGA class officers.

FCPS, in coordination with the county health department, is continuing to refine their approach to contact tracing and communication in order to minimize the impact of COVID-related absences on students’ access to learning.  At Justice, we are fortunate to have witnessed some of the improvements, especially with students who are fully vaccinated.  Moving forward, we will continue to ensure students can access necessary materials through Schoology if they are required to be out of school. 

 

As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

Yom Kippur - September 16: Yom Kippur is the holiest day in Judaism. To mark this day, Thursday, September 16 is noted as a religious/cultural observance date on the FCPS calendar. The FCPS 2021-22 School Year Calendar ensures students do not have to make choices between honoring their cultural or religious beliefs and missing tests or school activities. Tests, quizzes, field trips, graduation, homecoming, or FCPS-scheduled athletic events cannot be scheduled on any religious and cultural observances. Tests and quizzes will be given prior to any of the 15 days so that students will not be expected to study on these days.

 

Lockdown Drill - Next Week: Keeping students and staff safe is a priority at Justice High School. Next week we will conduct our first lockdown drill of the school year.  Your student may come home and talk about their experience during the drill.  We encourage you to talk with your student about the importance of being prepared for emergencies. Here are some helpful tips for families to use to support their students before and after school lockdown drills. Working together, we create a safe, secure environment for students to learn and grow in our schools.

Justice Junction - Community News & Updates | September 6, 2021

GovDelivery 2 weeks 3 days ago

September 6, 2021

 

Hello Justice HS Students, Families, and Community Members:

I hope you had a restful extended Labor Day weekend. I spent the weekend becoming an official Virginian, relaxing with my daughter, networking with new friends, catching up on chores at home, watching college football, and virtually celebrating my parents 53rd wedding anniversary today.

COVID mitigation and keeping transmission rates low continue to be a priority at Justice HS. We have added additional outdoor and indoor seating for students to use during lunch.  In addition, FCPS and the Health Department recently shared their plans to streamline asymptomatic, vaccinated students’ return to school when identified as a possible close contact, which should speed up the process for some students to return, as needed. 

At Justice, we have been lucky enough so far that we have not yet had any cases that resulted in the identification of close contacts at school.  Nevertheless, we are refining our structures to ensure students continue to have access to learning should they be identified as a possible close contact.

Finally, it is hard to believe that this week marks the 20th anniversary of 9/11.  For many of us, and our families, this day is significant. We will recognize the anniversary during the moment of silence on Friday, September 10th, and through lessons in our Social Studies classes. 

 

As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Tiffany I. Narcisse, Principal

Justice High School

703-824-3900 | https://justicehs.fcps.edu/

Empower our school, embrace our community, and educate to build positive futures as global citizens together.

 

 

Important Information

Student Attendance: In order for our students to get the most out of their education, students must be in school and on time to class every day. Absenteeism in the first month of school can predict poor attendance throughout the school year. Half the students who miss 2-4 days in September go on to miss nearly a month of school. If your student must be absent from school, you should always inform the school. The attendance line is 703-824-3920.

 

Safety Drills During the School Year: Keeping students and staff safe is a priority for all of us. Each school has an emergency preparedness plan to respond to incidents such as fires and tornadoes. Schools are required by state law to practice emergency drills, including lockdown drills, each year. Schools are required to notify parents and guardians at least 24 hours before a school conducts a lockdown drill. However, schools are not required to give the specific date and time of the drill in advance. 

The first lockdown drill of the school year must take place within the first 20 days of school. Your student may come home and talk about their experience during the drill. We encourage you to talk with your child about the importance of being prepared for emergencies. Here are some helpful tips for families to use to support their students before and after school lockdown drills. Working together, we create a safe, secure environment for students to learn and grow in our schools. 

 

PSAT/NMSQT (10th and 11th Graders) - October 13th: On Wednesday, October 13th, Justice High School will host both the PSAT/NMSQT for all students in grades 10 & 11. Students are automatically registered and no further action by families is needed. The test is offered at no cost to families. All FCPS students have access to Khan Academy’s free online test preparation, whether they are taking the PSAT for the first time or preparing for eleventh grade National Merit Scholarship Qualification. The Khan Academy online curriculum is customized for students based on any previous PSAT or SAT scores. In addition, the website offers general test preparation tips for students. Students will receive their testing locations in early October.

 

SAT School Day (12th Graders) - October 13th: On Wednesday, October 13th, Justice High School 12th graders will have the opportunity to take the SAT School Day. FCPS will cover the cost for any twelfth grade student to take this test. General information about the SAT School Day test format is available on the College Board webpage. We will share exam day schedules and additional details in the coming weeks. If you have questions about the SAT School Day administration at Justice High School, please contact our Director of Student Services, Christy Hanlon, at cihanlon@fcps.edu.

 

HELPFUL RESOURCES

SIS ParentVue Account

Parents and Guardians: Please follow this link for information on how to obtain and access a SIS ParentVue account.  This account will enable you to see your student’s grade and attendance information in SIS as well as access your child’s Schoology page.

 

Digital Resource Consent

At Justice High School, our teachers will use a variety of powerful 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. Without consent, teachers will need to plan additional lessons or deviate from a useful application altogether. You can find our school’s list of the resources here: https://justicehs.fcps.edu/adopteddigitalresources

Please follow this link to indicate whether or not your student is allowed to use the list of digital resources this year. This page also provides more information about how FCPS carefully reviews digital resources for approval.

 

Schoology Information and Support

Students, families, and staff throughout FCPS and in our school community will use Schoology (pronounced /SKOO-luh-jee/) as our learning management system. 

Here is what you need to know now:

  • You need a SIS/ParentVUE account to login to Schoology: http://bit.ly/FCPSSIS
  • Use your SIS/ParentVUE login information to login to Schoology: https://lms.fcps.edu. Look for the FCPS logo to make sure you are on the right login page.

Justice Junction - Community News & Updates - August 29, 2021

GovDelivery 3 weeks 4 days ago

August 29, 2021

 

Hello Justice HS Students, Families, and Community Members,

 

We’ve had an incredible opening week!  Thank you once again for supporting our strong return to school.  This past week, there have been many opportunities for our students to experience this feeling again: athletic practices, club meetings, our first football game and WIN on Friday night/Saturday afternoon, hanging out with friends in the hallways and classrooms, or even just being together again at school. 

 

Moving forward, we know that we face challenges.  We are doing everything we can to ensure our mitigation strategies are robust.  Students are doing a great job of wearing their masks and we will continue to enforce this policy for as long as necessary to keep everyone safe.  In addition, to support social distancing at lunch, more outdoor seating has been added outside the cafeteria and the student commons will be available beginning tomorrow.

At home, please continue to screen your student daily for any signs of illness prior to leaving home for school. Working together, these layered prevention strategies will help keep schools safe places for all students to learn.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Tiffany I. Narcisse, Principal

Justice High School

703-824-3900 | https://justicehs.fcps.edu/

Empower our school, embrace our community, and educate to build positive futures as global citizens together.

 

 

TRANSPORTATION

Student Bus Route Assignments: FCPS Office of Transportation Services emailed student bus route assignments on Friday, August 20th. Please note that the provided times are estimates and that buses may be delayed due to weather, traffic conditions, and a national and regional driver shortage.  Please check the Here Comes the Bus app or FCPS School Bus Delays website for potential delays. Students are expected to be at their bus stop at least five minutes before the scheduled pickup time. A double back route assignment may require your bus schedule to be adjusted earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon.

Please note that a national bus driver shortage is impacting FCPS and some routes may be longer or occasionally delayed as we work through the situation. Your patience and understanding as we make adjustments is appreciated. FCPS is working hard to address the need for drivers and plan for transportation in a way that has the least impact on students. Students should consider driving, walking, or biking to school while we work through the driver shortage and adjust routes. Carpools or group walks and bikes are also encouraged for those who are able to help relieve pressure on buses.

 

Kiss and Ride: Student drop off/pick up (aka Kiss and Ride) is conducted at the back entrance/parking lot. Parents should drop off their student(s) no earlier than 7:45am. Students are dismissed from school at 2:55pm. If you have any questions, please email Luther Ivery, Safety and Security Specialist, at lkivery@fcps.edu

 

Student Parking Information: At this time, we have sold out of all student parking passes. If you have any questions, please email Luther Ivery, Safety and Security Specialist, at lkivery@fcps.edu

 

OTHER INFORMATION

Student Attendance: In order for our students to get the most out of their education, students must be in school and on time to class every day. Absenteeism in the first month of school can predict poor attendance throughout the school year. Half the students who miss 2-4 days in September go on to miss nearly a month of school. If your student must be absent from school, you should always inform the school. The attendance line is 703-824-3920.

 

Labor Day Holiday - September 3-6: Virginia legislation requires that schools opening prior to Labor Day must be closed the Friday immediately preceding Labor Day. As a result, Friday, September 3, is a holiday for students and staff members in addition to the Labor Day holiday, Monday, September 6. See the complete 2021-22 school year calendar.

 

PSAT/NMSQT (10th and 11th Graders) - October 13: On Wednesday, October 13, Justice High School will host both the PSAT/NMSQT for all students in grades 10 & 11. Students are automatically registered and no further action by families is needed. The test is offered at no cost to families. All FCPS students have access to Khan Academy’s free online test preparation, whether they are taking the PSAT for the first time or preparing for eleventh grade National Merit Scholarship Qualification. The Khan Academy online curriculum is customized for students based on any previous PSAT or SAT scores. In addition, the website offers general test preparation tips for students. Students will receive their testing locations in early October.

 

SAT School Day (12th Graders) - October 13: On Wednesday, October 13, Justice High School 12th  graders will have the opportunity to take the SAT School Day. FCPS will cover the cost for any twelfth grade student to take this test. General information about the SAT School Day test format is available on the College Board webpage. We will share exam day schedules and additional details in the coming weeks. If you have questions about the SAT School Day administration at Justice High School, please contact our Director of Student Services, Christy Hanlon, at cihanlon@fcps.edu.

Message from the Boosters

Booster Athletes, Family & Friends,

As we advance towards the last part of a Justice’s athletic endeavors, we wanted to thank you for your patience and most of all your support. To say the least, it has been challenging for both coaches and athletes. And many parents weren’t able to even see their athletes perform at the highest levels. We bit our nails and waited for them to come home to tell us how they did. 

Among the biggest challenges this past year has been the inability to raise funds to support Justice Athletics. Between gate revenue, concessions, and other fundraisers like the Wolves Classic, we estimate a loss of income of approximately $35,000.00

These funds are critical to every sport since FCPS only provides funding for transportation, coaching stipends and referees- a fraction of what is needed. 

Over the next month, please consider making a donation in any amount to support what your students athletes have come to love: Justice sports. Simply go to the www.hallofjustice.com/donate. There you will be able to designate up to three sports you’d like to support or the program overall which provides much needed funds for all sports. 

Many Thanks,

Steve Primrose

Past President

Justice Junction - Weekly News & Updates

GovDelivery 1 month ago

August 22, 2021

Hello Justice HS Students, Families, and Community Members,

We will welcome over 2200 students back to in-person learning on Monday and I can’t be more anxious, excited, and ready to receive our students!  Seeing everyone connect/reconnect with each other as well at our events last week revealed to me what an awesome community we have at Justice HS. I know that no matter what challenges we may face, we are going to have an AMAZING school year.

We know that every one of our families have been impacted by COVID. We recognize that our students have faced challenges academically, behaviorally, socially, and emotionally over the last 18 months. At Justice HS, we are committed to supporting all our students in their academics, their actions, and their wellness.

When students arrive tomorrow, they will report directly to their 1st period class.  Student schedules are also viewable in SIS ParentVUE and StudentVUE.  For more information about obtaining a ParentVue account, please click here to access support on the FCPS website.  Additionally, we will have tables stationed in the front of the school to issue hard copies of schedules to students who do not currently have access to the online portal.  

Keeping our vision to “Empower our school, embrace our community, and educate to build positive futures as global citizens together” at the forefront of our daily actions and interactions will have a lasting effect on overall student achievement at Justice HS.  Your input on this Justice HS 3-2-1 Survey will support our efforts in accomplishing these goals.  The purpose of this survey is to provide campus administration and I with information to increase student achievement and overall productivity guided by our vision. 

Finally, all subscribers will begin to receive our Justice HS News You Choose weekly on Sundays.  Please encourage everyone you know associated with Justice HS to subscribe to this platform.  This week’s edition will provide you with important information regarding our overall goals for the 2021-2022 school year, 1st day of school procedures, helpful resources, announcements, and upcoming dates.  One of my goals as the principal of Justice HS is to continue to communicate to our students, families, and community more effectively and consistently.  Thank you for your patience as I navigate through this transition and implement systems to keep our communication efforts effective.  

Sincerely,

Tiffany I. Narcisse, Principal

 

2021-2022 Vision and Overall Goals

In conjunction with the FCPS vision to Affirm, Assess, and Advance our learners in all areas; we at Justice HS have set the following goals for the 2021-2022 school year:

  • Academic Achievement through Critical Thinking Strategies
    • Improving teaching strategies to develop learner’s judgement, evaluation and problem-solving abilities
  • Culturally Responsive Environment
    • Promoting authentic engagement and rigor among culturally and linguistically diverse students by building teacher awareness and knowledge, learning partnerships, and intellective capacities. (Culturally Responsive Teaching & The Brain, Zaretta Hammomd)
  • On Time Graduation & Attendance
    • Increased emphasis on a caring culture with initiatives to support building positive relationships and overall effective Social Emotional Learning practices with a strategic focus on improving student achievement, by serving the whole child.

 

1st Week of School Logistics

Student Schedules: Student schedules are available for viewing in SIS ParentVUE and StudentVUE. In addition, students can receive a hard copy of their schedule when they arrive to school on Monday morning. If your student forgets or does not know their 1st period class, staff members will be stationed in the hallways to assist students.

Note: We are continuing to update the master schedule and there is a possibility that a small number of student schedules may have changed since last week. Additionally, Christy Hanlon, our Director of Student Services recently sent an email about student schedules through eNotify (screenshot below).

 

If you have any questions about SIS ParentVUE, please email Madeline Orozco, Administrative Assistant at mlorozco@fcps.edu.

  

Finding Classes: Throughout the year, and especially during the first week of school, all staff members will be in the hallways helping students find their classes during each transition. We realize that a little extra time may be needed as many of our students have not been in school since March 2020. They will get the hang of their new routine sooner than they think and we are all here to help!

 

Schedule Change Requests: Our Student Services team is working hard to make sure our students have accurate schedules. We know some of our students will want to request schedule changes. In an effort to streamline and prioritize schedule change requests, we will be asking students to scan the QR code posted around campus if they would like to request changes to their course schedule. We will work on these changes over the course of the first week if space allows in the courses. Please reach out to your student’s counselor, if you have any questions.

 

Introducing Schoology - We are excited for Schoology, FCPS' new learning management system. Schoology is a learning space that enhances communication, collaboration, and personalized learning for students, teachers, and families.  Please follow this link for more information on how to access, use and get information about your child’s class through Schoology.  Please follow the links below for more information about this new resource.

                                Why Did We Switch to Schoology?

                                Additional Information and “How-To” Videos

 

Laptop Distribution – Students will be picking up their school laptops during the first two days of school.  9th and 10th grade classes will get them during their Health & PE class and 11th and 12th grade students will get them during their English class.  Students who did not return their laptop from last year will need to bring it to distribution to exchange for an updated laptop.

 

Free Breakfast & Lunch for All FCPS Students: The U.S. Department of Agriculture extended schools’ abilities to provide the meals, by giving special exemptions last year when schools were shut down due to COVID-19. This exemption has been extended for the 2021-22 school year. For Justice HS and FCPS, this means that all students, regardless of their families’ incomes, will receive free breakfast and lunch through June 2022.

 

Bell Schedule: Students will report to their 1st Period Class at 8:10 AM.  The 2021-2022 Bell Schedule is available on our Justice HS website at all times.

 

Transportation

Student Bus Route Assignments: FCPS Office of Transportation Services emailed student bus route assignments on Friday, August 20th. Please note that the provided times are estimates and that buses may be delayed due to weather, traffic conditions, and a national and regional driver shortage.  Please check the Here Comes the Bus app or FCPS School Bus Delays website for potential delays. Students are expected to be at their bus stop at least five minutes before the scheduled pickup time. A double back route assignment may require your bus schedule to be adjusted earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon.

Your patience and understanding as we make adjustments is appreciated. FCPS is working hard to address the need for drivers and plan for transportation in a way that has the least impact on students. Students should consider driving, walking, or biking to school while we work through the driver shortage and adjust routes. Carpools or group walks and bikes are also encouraged for those who are able to help relieve pressure on buses.

 

Kiss and Ride: Student drop off/pick up (aka Kiss and Ride) is conducted at the back entrance/parking lot. Parents should drop off their student(s) no earlier than 7:45am. Students are dismissed from school at 2:55pm. If you have any questions, please email Luther Ivery, Safety and Security Specialist, at lkivery@fcps.edu

 

Student Parking Information: At this time, we have sold out of all student parking passes. If you have any questions, please email Luther Ivery, Safety and Security Specialist, at lkivery@fcps.edu

COVID Health Protocols: Health Screening Questionnaire All staff and students shall complete this questionnaire each day prior to coming to the school building.  If any of the answers are “yes” you should remain home.  You do not need to turn in this form, simply ask yourself these questions each day prior to coming to the school building.

 

Masks: All staff and students, whether vaccinated or not, are required to wear a mask while indoors.

Message from the Boosters

Booster Athletes, Family & Friends,

As we advance towards the last part of a Justice’s athletic endeavors, we wanted to thank you for your patience and most of all your support. To say the least, it has been challenging for both coaches and athletes. And many parents weren’t able to even see their athletes perform at the highest levels. We bit our nails and waited for them to come home to tell us how they did. 

Among the biggest challenges this past year has been the inability to raise funds to support Justice Athletics. Between gate revenue, concessions, and other fundraisers like the Wolves Classic, we estimate a loss of income of approximately $35,000.00

These funds are critical to every sport since FCPS only provides funding for transportation, coaching stipends and referees- a fraction of what is needed. 

Over the next month, please consider making a donation in any amount to support what your students athletes have come to love: Justice sports. Simply go to the www.hallofjustice.com/donate. There you will be able to designate up to three sports you’d like to support or the program overall which provides much needed funds for all sports. 

Many Thanks,

Steve Primrose

Past President

A Note from Principal Eck

Dear Justice Families,

     Here we are, the beginning of June. We have made it. This week, we celebrate our seniors with Graduation at Fairfax High School on June 7 and our 9th through 11th grade students finish out the school year. .

   Yesterday, we celebrated our seniors during our PTSA annual caravan. We had a blast. Thanks to everyone who cheered us on along the route.

    Shout out to our Justice athletes. As we close out our Spring season, the wolves won 4 district titles in one week for a total of 5 championships this year. The five titles are the most since 1984!  See below for details.

     Just a few reminders, June 8th is a synchronous day (no in-person classes). All students will be virtual and school ends at 11:35 AM. June 9th and 10th are half days and students will be released at 11:35 AM. Friday, June 11th is a two-hour day. Students will be released at 10:20 AM.

    Wishing you a great week ahead.

Sensory Garden Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

On Friday, June 4th, Ms. Lunger and her students debuted the JHS sensory garden. The garden includes a seating area, pavers, green space, and herb and flower gardens. The sensory garden was made possible through the PTSA teacher grants program and the hard work of students, staff, and parents.

Justice Wolves Howling!

In what has been an unpresented and challenging year for high school athletics, the Wolves are thriving! This past week proved to be the #WeekoftheWolves. The wolves won 4 district titles in one week, the first time this has occurred in school history! Girls Lacrosse, Boys Lacrosse, Boys Soccer and Girls Soccer all capped off wonderful regular seasons with National District Championships! In combination with the Field Hockey team’s title earlier this year, Justice has totaled 5 Championships through this school year. The five titles are the most since 1984! Congratulations to all of our coaches, athletes and their families on these major accomplishments. They have worked so hard and overcome so much.

 

There is still work to do! Our spring teams will all compete in the upcoming Occoquan Region championships. Be on the lookout for more information regarding scheduling, especially for Monday, June 14th where the Wolves could host 4 regional 1st round games in one day!

Updated Mask and Social Distancing Guidance

For the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year, FCPS will be requiring students and staff to continue to wear masks and socially distance during instructional time in the school building. 

There has been updated guidance for events and activities outside of instructional time in the school building.  This website will give you the latest information.

The community is invited to speak at a Fairfax County School Board Public Hearing about the ESSER III grant on June 7, at 6 p.m. Sign up to speak. Members of the FCPS community can also submit their input using the FCPS Online Feedback Form. Find more information on the ESSR III grant.
