The parents’ section of our website is the place to find information pertinent to our St. Mark’s family, such as the Parent Handbook, forms, and the school calendar. Parent involvement is important to St. Mark’s, and plays a key role in the success of the child. We encourage you to take advantage of one or more of our volunteer opportunities, as well as scheduling for parent/teacher conferences, offered three times during the school year.

Inclement Weather/School Closing
There will be no school or BAC on days when Fairfax County Public Schools are closed due to bad weather. Please check your TV/radio/internet instead of calling the school; if school is closed, phone calls will go to the answering machine. When Fairfax County Public Schools open late due to bad weather, we open at regular time.
In the case of Fairfax County Public Schools closing early on a day already in progress, we will not have afternoon class and all of the children will go home at 12:00; the BAC program will close at 2:00pm. If parents have children who stay the afternoon in BAC, parents must continue to keep abreast of what changes Fairfax County Public Schools might make throughout the day in cases of extremely bad weather. Please realize that it is always the parents’ responsibility to decide whether or not to drive their child to school any time the weather and driving conditions threaten to become worse or dangerous.
