Dear Stoneleigh Elementary Families,


We recognize the decision regarding returning your child to the school building or having them remain virtual has been made after careful consideration as to what is best for each family. The staff at Stoneleigh Elementary are committed to ending this school year with the same high quality instruction and cultivation of classroom communities that has been at the heart of everything.


For those families, who have chosen to participate in the 4-day in person learning which starts tomorrow there is one change to breakfast for students in grades 1 - 5. Students in first through third grade will report to their homeroom to check in and proceed to the cafeteria to pick up the individually packed breakfast and eat. Students in fourth and fifth grade will pick up the individually packed breakfast and eat prior to reporting to homeroom. Breakfast is offered from 8:30 to 8:45am.


As a reminder, the menus are posted on the BCPS website at: website. https://businessservices.bcps.org/departments/business_services_operations/food_and_nutrition_services/breakfast_and_lunch_menus
