Observing Juneteenth: A Day of Reflection

June 19 is Juneteenth, a day commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. On this day of celebration and remembrance, staff and students are encouraged to reflect on history and the vital role you play in moving our school system forward toward our goal of a more just and equitable community. In alignment with the federal action making Juneteenth a federal holiday, MCPS schools and offices will be closed on Friday, June 18, 2021.



2020-2021 School Year Comes To An End

The 2020-2021 school year has come to an end. Despite the often challenging circumstances, you have persevered and have many reasons to celebrate. Dr. Monifa B. McKnight, acting superintendent, congratulates you in this video message. Have a happy summer!
