Laurel Hill Elementary School Welcomes All Military Families
We welcome all of our students from military families! You are encouraged to ask any of your questions to our points of contact that include any of our administrators, (Ms. Dalton, principal; Dr. Traylor, Assistant Principal and Mrs. Smith, Assistant Principal) and our parent liaison Mrs. Teresa Smith.
An additional great source of information is found on the FCPS website dedicated to the support of the military family. The link: https://www.fcps.edu/registration/military-families
Many of our families have members that are currently serving in all of the five branches of service. In addition, we have parents that are retired and former military service members as well. Our close geographic proximity to our nation’s capital and many military installations make the Laurel Hill Elementary Schoo community a great choice for families.

In mid-October, an Impact Aid Student-Parent Survey is sent home to every student in our school. It is very important for every parent to complete and return the form which enables Fairfax County Public Schools to receive money from the federal government to support the financial educational needs for all students of active duty military families. We appreciate everyone completing those forms in a timely manner.
