Construction Update

There are many exciting changes happening at Wakefield Forest as construction continues throughout the summer. An update was shared at a community meeting on August 10, 2023, on what to expect as students return to school this fall.  

There are many exciting changes happening at Wakefield Forest as construction continues throughout the summer. I would like to share an update on what to expect as students return to school in August.

Classes will remain in the same locations as the end of the 2022-23 school year:

  • Kindergarten – second grades will be inside the existing building
  • Third– sixth grades will be in the quads. 

When the new building is completed, our plan is to move kindergarten – third grades into the new spaces.

I invite you to share any thoughts and questions about our school construction project through this feedback form

For updates, check the Wakefield Forest Elementary School Capital Project webpage and sign up for the FCPS News You Choose newsletter subscription on this topic. Once signed up or logged in, choose the Capital Projects (School Construction) and Wakefield Forest Elementary School Construction topic. Information will also be shared through FCPS, school, and School Board member newsletters.

As construction continues, please know safety and continuity of learning are always our priority.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we build the Wakefield Forest of the future.
