New Parent Information
We are compiling a list of "FAQs" for new parents, whether you are new to the area or a have a kindergartener this year. We hope to add to these throughout the fall!
Volunteering at the school via the PTO is a great way to participate and interact with your child. We have many volunteer opportunities throughout the year!
The first time you check-in will take a bit longer because you need to register with the system. We recommend anticipating 10-15 minutes. Subsequent check-ins will be very quick.
- Discuss with your children the importance of following adult instructions during any drill or school event.
- Never drive/walk/bike to the school because you learned of a lock-down, shelter-in-place, or other security event. They can not let you in!
- Remember that the procedures practiced at Terraset are put in place by FCPS and are not specific to the school. If you disagree with a procedure, take it up with our school board members and not school administration!
- In the unlikely event of an emergency, please look for updates from FCPS's official text messages and emails. The PTO is not a source of information during these situations.
