Message from Principal Intern
Dear Hoover Families, We have had a lot of inquiries this morning about whether or not the school day will be interrupted as a result of the weather. MCPS will make a decision about closing schools 2-hours early by 11AM this morning. As soon as we are notified of any closings I will send a message out to the community with an update on school operations. As you know we have been experiencing colder than normal weather this past week. This morning, I personally walked the building with building service and worked with MCPS maintenance in order to ensure our heat was up and running. Last week, any classrooms that had cooler temperatures were offered a relocated space for learning. In addition, we notified teachers and students that although we typically don’t allow jackets and hats inside the school building, we would make an exception last week to make sure everyone was comfortable. Hoover Middle School, along with MCPS, is committed to ensuring a safe, healthy, and productive learning environment for our students. If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact the main office at 301-968-3740. Stephanie SheronPrincipal InternHoover Middle School
