Have a Great Spring Break

We want you to have a great Spring Break this week. Teachers will touch base again this week as they continue their training. Remember all activities are optional from the March 25th resources but teachers may assign a specially chosen one for you this week just to see if you are keeping up with your learning. Have a great week.


Gifted and Talented Announcement:


As a result of the decision of Maryland State Superintendent, Dr. Karen Salmon, that all state schools will remain closed until April 24 in response to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, we have shifted several dates related to GT Placement:

  • Families of 3rd grade students who wish to submit a request for a placement review for 4th grade GT Math should email the G/T Resource teacher with this request by April 15. Staff will conduct the review and communicate with families by May 1.
  • Students who were absent for CogAT testing in December or have entered HCPSS since that time will have an opportunity to take CogAT for potential GT Placement this summer rather than the previously communicated date of May 2. New dates will be determined as soon as possible and communicated to the school community. Students who missed testing will automatically receive an invitation to testing once the dates are finalized.
