Distribution of Community Flyers

There are four opportunities during the school year when non-profit organizations can distribute flyers to our school community.

Fairfax County Schools (FCPS) offers the opportunity for nonprofit organizations to make their materials available to students and parents.  Each school principal has the option of how they want to distribute to their individual school.

Fliers and other community materials must be related to the schools’ educational mission, be directed to students, not be harmful to children, be age-appropriate, and not be violations of the current versions of Regulations 2601 or 2612.

There are four (4) opportunities for community nonprofit groups (related to children/families and education) to make materials available to Island Creek Elementary students/families.

These four opportunities are listed below.  




1st  Kindergarten Orientation One week prior to Kindergarten Orientation (usually held in April)


The Thursday prior to the start of school at our Back-to-School Extravaganza

One week prior to the Back-to-School Extravaganza


The 1st Thursday in September (materials will be sent home in the Thursday folder)

The last week of August.

4th On-going - Material/flyer kiosk in the school lobby Please bring materials to the office for review 

To ensure that schools remain neutral, do not appear to approve or disapprove any particular religious or political viewpoint, and do not sponsor or endorse the classes or activities sponsored by any community organization, all non-school and nongovernmental materials made available through the schools must include the following disclaimer:

“These materials are neither sponsored nor endorsed by the Fairfax County School Board, the Superintendent, or this school.”

If you would like to request a table for Kindergarten Orientation, Back-to-School Extravaganza or have questions about flier distribution, please contact the Island Creek office at 571-642-6300.

**Please call to determine the class totals for flier distributions.  The non-profit group is responsible for bundling the fliers in classroom groups before bringing them to the Island Creek Main Office.

**Flyers to be sent home in must be sorted into 30 sets of 30.
