Under the direction of Montgomery County and State health officials, Rockville High School will remain closed on Monday, May 4. The school was originally closed on Friday, May 1, due to a probable case of the H1N1 (Swine) Flu involving a student.
A date has not yet been set for reopening, but Montgomery County Public Schools officials are consulting with the county and state health officials on a daily basis, and will provide an update on the school’s reopening as soon as possible.
As this week is a time when high school students begin taking Advanced Placement (AP) and/or International Baccalaureate (IB) exams, school officials have set up an alternate location for Rockville High School students to take the tests while the school is closed. On Monday, two AP exams are scheduled and participating students from Rockville High School will be able to take the exams at the Mark Twain School in Rockville.
