Gifted Update 6/9/2020: Identification

With the closure of Prince William County Schools due to COVID-19, gifted identification has been on hold. At this time, we expect to resume the identification process in August. Additional meetings of the  division-level Gifted Identification/Placement Committee have been scheduled to review cases and make decisions regarding eligibility and placement for gifted services.  We will continue to keep you updated as new information becomes available. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Sara Frasnelli (Briggs) at

During Stonewall's online learning, SIGNET students receive invites to their Microsoft 365 email to meet through Zoom. Please note the schedule below: 
    6th Grade- Wednesdays, 9:30AM

Please feel free to contact me through email or Microsoft Teams' chat if there are any questions or I can provide support.
