NFES October Fall in Love with Fitness Challenge!!

We challenge our NFES students and their families to participate in our “Fall in Love with Fitness” challenge during the month of October!  Linked here, you will find the PE newsletter and fitness calendar that teachers sent out in an email to families the first week of October.

NFES October Newsletter                            Fall-tastic Fitness Challenge

For the Fall Fitness Challenge, students (and we dare their other family members too!) can earn points for their grade levels by following these steps…

*On the calendar, find the picture of a falling leaf, pumpkin, or a bat for the day and complete that workout. For example, October 1st has a pumpkin. Therefore, on that day, you will do the pumpkin workout listed.

*On the calendar, initial each day you complete the workout. At the end of the month, add up the total number of days completed.

*Parents sign the bottom of the calendar and return it to our PE teacher, Mrs. Griffeth, no later than NOVEMBER 1st. You earn 1 point for your grade level by turning in a signed calendar. If EVERY day on your calendar is completed, you earn 5 points for your grade level!

The grade level with the most points wins a fun color run on the track!

So, Fox Families, get on that workout gear and earn those points!  We hope you fall in love with fitness this month!

Child Find Information

Do you have questions or concerns about your child’s development? Do you believe that your child might benefit from special education? Don’t sit back and wait. Take time to ask about…  Child Find

Child Find is the process school divisions must use to locate, identify and evaluate children who need special education and related services. It is the first step in the process of determining if a child is eligible for special education. In Henrico County, it is the responsibility of Henrico Schools to help coordinate the Child Find process.

For children already in school:
If you suspect that your child may have a disability, contact your child’s teacher to discuss the possibility of a referral, or call the HCPS Office of Exceptional Education at 804-652-3801.

For children age 2-5 (must be 2 by Sept. 30):
If you suspect that your child may have a developmental delay, contact the Preschool Testing Team at 804-515-1146.

For children birth to age 3:

Henrico Schools using “Anonymous Alerts” system to improve communication about safety concerns

What is Anonymous Alerts?

The Anonymous Alerts safety and anti-bullying reporting system helps combat negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up. Social and peer pressure are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome.

The system allows for one-way or two-way anonymous encrypted communication between those submitting reports (students, parents or community members) and school division administration and staff members. System users have the option to remain anonymous or reveal their identity when submitting a report.

How does it work?

To use the new app, students, parents or others simply visit the Henrico County Public Schools website and click on the “Anonymous Alerts” button or the text link to submit a report expressing a concern. Anonymous Alerts apps can be downloaded directly from the Apple, Google Play or Chrome stores.

Users enter Henrico Schools’ Anonymous Alerts activation code – Henrico – and select the school to which the message should go. Informational posters explaining how to use the system will be displayed in HCPS schools and offices.

To send reports from the internet, go to: https://report.anonymousalerts.com/henrico.

To send a report from your phone:

  • Download the free Anonymous Alerts app from the Apple Store, Google Play store or Chrome store.
  • Launch the app and enter the activation code, Henrico.
  • Send important reports to school officials.
  • If desired, add a screenshot, photo or video about the incident.
