Mason Crest Principle Selection needs your help!
The PTO is looking for a few individuals to represent as community members in the Principle Selection Process. We encourage any individual who is committed to the principal selection process and the future of Mason Crest Elementary School to apply. The only thing we ask is that you must be available for the entire day (7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.)
We will be compiling the final list of interested community members to submit to the Region by Wednesday, April 10, 2018. These individuals will assist the Region in the Principal Selection Process, which will be held Thursday, April 26, 2018, at the Gatehouse Administration Center in Falls Church.
A representative from the office of Administrative Employment will be coming out to Mason Crest Elementary School on Wednesday, April 4th, at 7:00 pm with Region Assistant Superintendent, Fabio Zuluaga to meet with the community to provide additional information regarding the principal selection process.
Below is a guide for the information the Region will need for each name submitted. Although there are six panels available, you only need to fill out one to submit.

Attention Parent or Guardian of a Current Fifth Grade Student:
Virginia Law requires that all students entering sixth grade receive a booster dose of the Tdap vaccine prior to the beginning of school. The Tdap vaccine protects against tetanus (lockjaw), diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough) and is usually given around the age of 11, although it can be given as early as seven years of age.
In order for your child to begin 6th grade you will need to submit one of the following documents before the first day of school. It is recommended that all paperwork is submitted to the school office by June 8, 2018.
Acceptable documentation can be one of the following:
- A copy of your child’s immunization record showing the Tdap vaccine.
- A note on a healthcare provider’s letterhead stating the date the Tdap vaccine was given.
- A healthcare provider’s written statement of a permanent or temporary medical exemption.
- A notarized Religious Exemption Form which is available online at: http://www.doe.virginia.gov/support/health_medical/certificate_religious_exemption.pdf
The Tdap booster is available from your child’s healthcare provider or The Fairfax County Health Department. The Health Department clinic locations and hours are available online at: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/hd/hdclinicsite.htm, or by calling 703-246-2411. Please note that students receiving immunizations at the Health Department must be accompanied by an adult, and should bring their immunization records with them.
For questions regarding immunization documentation, please contact the school student information assistant (SIA) or registrar.
Sixth grade students will not be allowed to begin school in August 2018 without submitting proper documentation.
