COMING BACK, BETTER THAN EVER!

 

Sept. 8, 2021

Dear MCPS Community:

The September 3 communication regarding updated guidance about quarantining students in close contact with an individual who displays COVID-19 symptoms has raised concerns and further questions. I would like to provide additional information about this guidance, as well as share some new information about tools that will help us minimize the number of students who need to quarantine. Attached is a letter from Dr. Travis Gayles, Montgomery County Health Officer. Following are some of the major points regarding our prevention strategies.

Dear MCPS Community:

I hope that you and your families are well and staying safe. The first week of school has flown by and it has been amazing to hear the excitement and see the joy on students' faces as they have reconnected with their peers and staff. Our school communities are all doing their part to ensure a safe learning environment for students and staff and limit the spread of COVID-19.

Dear MCPS Community:

The month of July ushers in a new season of teaching and learning in Montgomery County Public Schools.

To meet our students’ social, emotional, mental health and academic needs, we have vastly expanded our summer programming: In the past week, our summer school programs began serving more than 52,000 students, many of whom are learning and growing back in their school buildings. And next week, our two schools that operate on an innovative school calendar, Roscoe Nix and Arcola elementary schools, will welcome students back to school buildings for five days a week of in-person instruction, with a teacher in every classroom—in a preview of the experiences we will provide for all our students beginning this fall.

Dear Members of the MCPS Family,

This time 20 years ago, I was wrapping up my first year teaching in Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS). As that first year at Parkland Middle School came to a close, I felt enormously proud of my students and profoundly grateful to be a part of the MCPS community. I hold those same feelings—of great admiration for our students and deep connection with our school family—close to me today as I have the honor of writing to you as the acting superintendent of MCPS.
