Parent Survey Deadline Extended to Dec. 7

As MCPS prepares for the return of students, it is critical for parents to complete the preference survey indicating whether their child(ren) will remain exclusively in a virtual learning environment, or participate in a combination of in-person and virtual instruction during the second semester. The deadline to submit the survey has been extended to Monday, Dec. 7. Both options would allow students to take part in in-person athletics and extracurricular activities. Parents who select the in-person experience will be able to switch to virtual at any time. The survey also asks parents to indicate if their child needs MCPS-provided transportation.

MCPS COVID-19 Data Dashboard

Surging COVID-19 infection rates across the nation and in our region have required school districts across the country to revise and adjust recovery plans for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. MCPS remains committed to follow applicable guidelines from the Maryland Department of Health, our local health department, and the CDC for safe reopening of in-person instruction. The purpose of this dashboard is to provide the Montgomery county community with identified health metrics that will guide our conversations about the safe return to in-person learning.
