Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) uses a variety of digital resources to support student learning. Some of these tools require parental consent according to their terms of service and/or privacy policy. FCPS and Haycock Elementary School take your child’s privacy and security very seriously; we follow the guidelines set forth by federal legislation. The tools listed below have been thoroughly reviewed and approved for use in FCPS.

The reason that this letter was sent home in first day folders was due to our students' ages. The privacy policies and terms of service for each site require parental permission for students under the age of 13.

Students should use their FCPS Google account when logging in and creating accounts for these resources.
