2016-2017 Opening of School Website

Welcome (back) to TJHSST!

Welcome to the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science & Technology Virtual Back to School Packet for the 2016-2017 school year.

This page contains all of the necessary forms and important information students and families will need for the start of the school year.

As we prepare to begin another exciting school year, we are pleased to welcome back all students and staff members who are returning and extend a very warm welcome to all new members of the TJ community.

Information about bus routes and FCPS transportation will be mailed home as soon they are made available to the school by the FCPS Transportation Office. Students from outside FCPS who have transportation concerns and questions should contact their local jurisdiction’s transportation offices for specific information about how bus routes will be assigned for the coming school year.

Information about how to request a schedule change will be included when we email schedules on or about August 26, 2016. The Student Services staff will return on contract August 19th and will be available to respond to phone calls and emails at that time.

Forms to be completed and submitted by ALL students (required annually):

Please be sure to put your student ID # in the top right corner of all forms to assist us with sorting and accounting for all forms submitted/collected.

Forms to be completed and submitted only if applicable:

  • Student Information Update (FCPS Form IT-22)
    • Please complete and submit the form only if there is a change to your existing contact information. If there is a change of address, please be certain to contact the TJHSST Admissions Office for review/approval BEFORE moving - the school cannot update residency without first having the approval of the Admissions Office who are responsible for eligibility.

    • Submit this form and check payable to TJHSST for $17 to Mr. Wong located in the Student Services Department.

    • If you have further questions on the PSAT which will be held on October 19, 2016, please email Mr. Wong directly at adam.wong@fcps.edu
    • The Classes of 2019 and 2020 will also be taking the PSAT appropriate for their grade levels but are not required to pay/register for the exam as they will not be taking the PSAT as a part of the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test competition like the Class of 2018.

    • FCPS Opt Out Forms Bundle
      • This bundle of forms affords parents the ability to opt their student out of any or all of the following activities. Release of information about the student for the school yearbook and other school-related publications, release of directory information to persons and organizations outside FCPS, release of information to military recruiters, release of information for commercial purposes, etc.
      • If applicable, please complete and return these forms to the school no later than September 23, 2016 as we will be providing directory information to the PTSA on September 30, 2016.
    • FCPS Family Life Education Opt Out Forms
        • The Family Life Education (FLE) curriculum and materials are available for review in the TJHSST Library and there will be instructors available at Back to School Night to field any questions that parents may have.
