As our students and teachers continue with distance learning, we are here to support the technology needs of students and staff.  UHS User Support Specialist, Michelle Brammer, will be the point of contact for all technology needs including:

  • Account information, log-in, and/or password resets
  • Other issues with computer use or virtual learning tools

Ms. Brammer is available via email (michelle.brammer@fcps.org) Monday-Friday, 8a - 3p, to provide technical support.

In addition, Ms. Brammer will maintain office hours by appointment only at UHS as listed below for pick-up and drop-off of equipment.  All appointments will be confirmed by email.  No walk-up assistance will be permitted.

Information as of April 2, 2020

Beginning March 30, UHS teachers will provide online activities primarily through Schoology and Google Classroom.  Students will receive assignments and submit work electronically. Due to the diversity of our classes and flexibility in the online learning platform, the method in which students receive and submit work may vary among classes. We anticipate students will have no more than 45 minutes of work per day per course, with exceptions for AP, IB, and dual enrollment courses.

UHS students who do not have a device for use at home and need a Chromebook or are haviing technical issues should contact User Support Specialist, Michelle Brammer at michelle.brammer@fcps.org.  If you need assistance with Schoology, please visit the Supplemental Resources for FCPS Families Schoology Support page at https://sites.google.com/fcps.org/fcpslearning/tech_resources.

School counselors and assistant principals are available by email or telephone to assist students and parents.  If you are uncertain which administrator or counselor to contact, please visit: Assistant Principal and School Counselor Assignments  Below are the direct telephone numbers and email addresses for each of our administrators.  NOTE: staff working remotely will have access to their email and voicemail messages.

Administrator Contact Information

Parents of students who currently receive services based on an individualized education plan (IEP) or 504 plan should expect to hear from their child’s case manager regarding available services.  Any parent who has concerns about these services should contact their child’s case manager or assistant principal.

Term 3 will end on April 8.  April 9 is a teacher work day; there should be no new work presented on April 9.  

FCPS has added a website with a variety of resources for families to engage in educational activities during this time away from the classroom. We will include additional content, so please check back for updates: https://sites.google.com/fcps.org/fcpslearning/home
