Say YES to the Test–Random and Rapid COVID-19 Testing

One significant mitigation tactic Montgomery County Public Schools will use this fall is random COVID-19 screening tests and rapid testing across grades. MCPS, in partnership with the Maryland Department of Health, is offering COVID tests to students at no cost. Testing requires parent permission so "Say Yes to the Test".
Screening Testing-The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends random asymptomatic COVID-19 testing because it detects and can limit the spread of the virus, even in the absence of visible symptoms. 
Rapid Testing- Staff from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will determine that a COVID-19 rapid test should be administered when a student presents to a health room with potential COVID-19 symptoms

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

The Board of Education has proclaimed Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 as Hispanic Heritage Month. Throughout the month, MCPS schools will celebrate the unique cultures and traditions of students, teachers, staff and community members who trace their roots to the cultures of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, Spain, Africa and Spanish-speaking countries in the Caribbean.

MCPS Meals Information


MCPS will offer meals at no charge to all students for school year 2021–2022! The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has granted waivers for meal service for this school year. These waivers allow all students to receive the meals at no charge, regardless of free or reduced-priced status. MCPS will offer breakfast, lunch, snack, and supper on all instructional school days.

Nutrition is critical to a student's ability to learn. We remain committed to providing nutritious, tasty meals. All our meals will be planned to meet nutrition standards for the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act (HHFKA) by registered dietitians.
