K-5 Virtual Program

Fredericksburg City Public Schools is offering two options (virtual learning or in-person learning) for students to receive their kindergarten through grade five education in the 2021-22 school year. Families and students who are interested in virtual learning are encouraged to work through the statements on this document to determine which option will be the best for their child(ren). Students should complete this checklist with an adult who will support the student during virtual instruction. If it is not possible to have an adult in this role, the student should return to school in August for in-person.

After reviewing the characteristics below, if you are still unsure whether making a commitment to virtual learning for the first semester is the best fit for your family, talk to your child’s school counselor or administrator.

If you plan to have your child participate in virtual learning during the first semester, August-December 2021, you must complete the online form found at the link below no later than July 13, 2021.  Late requests cannot be accepted.  Second semester commitment to virtual learning will be made available later in the school year.
