Dear Parent,

As you know all too well, the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted all of us. We are pleased to share that we are partnering with Carilion Health Systems to offer an optional COVID-19 vaccination clinic at William Fleming High School Auditorium from 9AM-12PM on Friday May 7,2021, for any student age 16 or older who would like to be vaccinated. This optional clinic will provide the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.  If you would like your child to receive the Pfizer vaccine, please register your child using the following link:

COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Registration


You will be able to provide consent during registration so that you do not need to accompany your child. Registration through the link/QR code will require you to make an appointment to hold a vaccine spot. If you are requiring RCPS Bus Transport you will need to follow bus schedule times, NOT the appointment time.  


Registration forms will be available at the schools if you are unable to access online registration. 

If you have questions, please contact your school nurse.


(Deadline to register is by noon on Thursday May 6, 2021)

Principal's Welcome Letter

August 26, 2020

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students:

Greetings Colonels!   It is my pleasure to welcome you to William Fleming High School for the 2020 - 2021 school year.  I look forward to this school year and the opportunity to work with so many outstanding young people who will become part of the Colonel legacy of academic, athletic, and civic excellence. 

On behalf of our faculty and staff, we hope you had a safe and enjoyable summer.  Our faculty, staff, and administrators are eager to provide students an educational experience.  Our theme “Colonels – Refocusing Our Commitment for Success” will help us strive and focus on what is in the best interest of students learning through our virtual platform.  We still have much work to do and look forward to a year filled with student achievements through strong teaching and learning, strong communication, and strong relationships.

It is important for all students to be present daily on the computer to receive synchronous instruction.  Laptops have been made available for all students if needed.  Students are expected to be logged into every class daily and actively participating with the teacher.  Monday and Wednesdays will be considered “A” days.  Tuesday and Thursdays will be considered “B” days.  The first schedule below gives you the outline for Monday through Thursday.  Fridays will be a seven period hybrid day.  Students will check into every class block listed on the second schedule below. 

We will continue to update you through communication via robo-calls and updates to the William Fleming High School website.  If you go to the WFHS home page and scroll to the middle of the picture, you will see a link that states “Colonel Cove: Information and Directions for Virtual Learning.”

The first day of school is Monday, August 31, 2020.  Students must be prepared to be online promptly at 8:45am for their first class. 

Colonel Pride!!

Archie L. Freeman III
