How to make sure your child’s Chromebook is ready for the start of school #

Prepare now for a great start to the new school year by making sure your child’s Chromebook is working. Here’s what to do:

  1. Locate your child’s Chromebook and charger.
  2. Plug in the Chromebook, and charge it up.
  3. Check for major damage.

If your Chromebook is damaged or not working, then the technology team is ready to help! We have scheduled support sessions to help families: 

Bird High School (Commons Door 14)

  • Monday, Aug. 1, 8-10 a.m.
  • Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2-4 p.m.
  • Monday, Aug. 8, 8-10 a.m. 
  • Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2-4 p.m.

If the dates and times do not work for you, then please don’t worry: Your child will be able to get Chromebook help when school starts. If your children are new to Chesterfield County Public Schools, then they will receive their Chromebooks when they start school.

No need to wait! See the 2022-23 parent handbook now. #

At the beginning of each school year, every student receives a printed copy of the parent handbook, which is full of helpful information. You can see the 2022-23 parent handbook online now, if you want to check it out before your student brings home the printed version. This year’s parent handbook is available here; the Spanish version will soon be online.

Act now: Update your address in ParentVUE #

How will your student get to school? Transportation planning is underway. All families are asked to act now to update student transportation information, even if your student will attend school virtually. Please log into ParentVUE and check your home address and any alternative addresses. For a link to ParentVUE and more details, go to https://bit.ly/3PzeEfv.

Throwing open the doors of our new elementary school #

School and community leaders held a ribbon-cutting ceremony July 25 followed by a building tour of the new Moseley Elementary School at 7100 Magnolia Green Parkway. Video of the event is available on the CCPS  YouTube channel (ccpsva) and Facebook page (@chesterfieldschools), and you can see photos from the event here.

Located in western Chesterfield County in the Matoaca District, Moseley Elementary encompasses 104,621 square feet with space for 900 students. Budgeted for $32.6 million as part of the capital improvement program of Chesterfield County Public Schools, Moseley Elementary was completed on time and under budget. It is the 40th elementary school of central Virginia’s largest school system. Read more here.

Back-to-school information #

    • Helpful registration video: Through Minutes With Merv, #oneCCPS families can get fast facts for a strong start to the school year. This video focuses on registering students who have not previously attended Chesterfield County Public Schools. Go to bit.ly/CCPSreg for helpful links, including find-my-school widget, school supply lists and transportation details.
    • Start of the year: Aug. 22 is the first day of the 2022-23 school year for Chesterfield County schools that follow a traditional calendar (only Falling Creek and Bellwood elementaries follow a year-round calendar). But some students will not start until Aug. 23 or Aug. 24. Get all the details about school calendars at bit.ly/CCPScals so you know which date your child heads to class.
  • Free and reduced-price meals reminder: During the pandemic, the federal government issued a waiver allowing all children to eat for free at school. This meant the application for free or reduced-price meals was not required during this time. However, the federal waiver expired, and families must now complete an application to receive free or reduced-price meals during the 2022-23 school year. All others will pay for meals as they did before the pandemic. Complete the free or reduced price meal application for the 2022-23 school year here in English or here in Spanish. If you need a paper form, contact [email protected]. Note: Children who attend schools that qualify for the Community Eligibility Provision will receive free meals at school during the 2022-23 school year and do not need to complete a free or reduced price meal application. 

 

Immunizations and physicals for new school year #

Families have several options for making sure children have the required immunizations and physicals for the 2022-23 school year. Here is helpful information:

  • The Chesterfield Health District will hold an appointment-only school vaccination clinic on Aug. 6. Call 804-751-4908 to make an appointment. These flyers in English and in Spanish offer details.

Details about where to schedule student physicals are available in English and in Spanish.
