Principal Marie Lemmon and Jeffrey Platenberg, assistant superintendent of Fairfax County Public Schools for facilities and transportation services, welcomed students as they stepped down from their buses. FCPS Superintendent Karen Garza and school board member Sandy Evans also stopped by.

As she walked around the building, Lemmon saw “kids in class playing introductory games, learning each others’ names, and talking about routines in the classroom.”
There was a report that large numbers of students from the Culmore area didn’t know which bus to get on and went home. According to Lemmon, “about four or five children who had never ridden the bus before were confused about where to get on the bus and their parents drove them to school.”
