March 26, 2023

Dear Quince Orchard Students, Staff, and Families,

I hope you were able to get outside today to enjoy the amazing weather and signs of spring. It has been a very busy month and the ray of sunshine was good for the soul. Congratulations to our amazing theatre, pit, and crew for an epic opening weekend of our spring musical Anastasia. It is the best show I have seen at QO and there are three more opportunities to see it for yourself next weekend.

We have a four day week to end the 3rd marking period and we begin spring break on Friday, March 31st. Spring Break is from Friday, March 31st through Monday, April 10th.

Thank you for your ongoing support as we implement our lunch policies and continue to elevate our commitment to creating a culture of regular on time attendance. We have heard from many students, families, and community members with differing opinions of what actions should be taken or can be taken. While we appreciate and value ideas, it is important for everyone to understand that we must implement policies and procedures in alignment with the MCPS Code of Conduct for students as well as the parameters placed on MCPS employees for support off campus. Students and staff safety is a priority. However, it takes all of us to make a change. We are following up whenever we hear or see issues and our common goal is create a culture where everyone is safe, valued, and welcomed. Being part of the QO school community means that we are always representing Cougar Pride.

This week we have the following events/meetings in addition to our weekly athletic events:

Wednesday, March 29th- Staff vs Student basketball fundraiser at 7:00 pm.

Friday, March 31st- Spring Musical Anastasia at 7:00 pm

Saturday, April 1st- Spring Musical Anastasia at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm.

This will be the last newsletter until Monday, April 10th.

Please take care of yourself, enjoy the much needed break, and remember, we can't hide our Cougar Pride!

All the best,

Beth Thomas

Community Letter from Principal Thomas re: QOHS School Lunch Policy

Dear QOHS students, staff and families,

In light of the continued safety concerns and disruptive behaviors that have taken place off school property, QOHS will actively be enforcing our lunch policy. This will begin Friday 3/24/23 and we will not waver from the implementation of this policy. Please review the information below.

Quince Orchard High School Lunch Policy

At Quince Orchard High School, we are committed to creating the conditions for all

students to experience excellence. This is supported by our commitment to shining the light on what is working and not working to create an anti-biased/antiracist school community.

Quince Orchard High School has a Closed Lunch Policy for all students in Grades 9 and 10. Students in Grades 11 and 12 may leave QO property for lunch. They must have a student ID card that reflects their 11th and 12th grade status. If an 11th or 12th grader wants to leave campus during lunch, they MUST show their current year school ID card to school staff. No exceptions.

Students are reminded that when they leave campus and enter the surrounding community, they must follow the MCPS Student Code of Conduct. Open lunch is a privilege. Permission to leave campus during lunch can be revoked.

For 11th or 12th graders leaving campus for open lunch, students must:

  • show their current year school ID card to check out with staff at either of these two exits:

    • the tennis court/Safeway exit, or

    • the bus loop/QO library exit.

  • not access vehicles and/or leave campus in a vehicle without staff permission.

  • return to the building and arrive to class on time.

  • use the crosswalk and sidewalks only.

  • follow staff directions when crossing the street.

  • behave courteously and respectfully to staff, to other students, to the public, and to the business locations in our community.

Students who attempt to use another person’s pass for open lunch privilege will result in the revocation for both students. Visitors are not allowed in the lunchroom or other areas throughout the school without permission and must be clearly identified with a visitor badge. As a reminder, students are not allowed to have off-campus food delivered to the school. Any food delivered will be kept by the welcome center and available for pick up at the end of the school day.

Consequences for violating the lunch policy:

  • 1st violation: a reminder and administrative documentation

  • 2nd violation: same as above and parent notification

  • 3rd violation: same as above and referral and restorative lunch tutoring that the student must attend

  • 4th violation: open lunch revoked (if applicable)

We are not going to waver from this policy and need everyone's support. This policy requires a shared commitment by everyone. If you have questions or concerns, please contact your students' grade-level administrator or myself.


Elizabeth L. Thomas



Estimados estudiantes, personal y familias de QOHS,

A la luz de las continuas preocupaciones de seguridad y los comportamientos disruptivos que han tenido lugar fuera de la propiedad escolar, QOHS hará cumplir activamente nuestra política de almuerzo. Por favor, revise la información a continuación.

Política de Almuerzo de la Escuela Secundaria Quince Orchard

En la Escuela Secundaria Quince Orchard, estamos comprometidos a crear las condiciones para que todos estudiantes a experimentar la excelencia. Esto está respaldado por nuestro compromiso de arrojar luz sobre lo que funciona y lo que no funciona para crear una comunidad escolar antiparcial y antirracista.

La escuela secundaria Quince Orchard tiene una política de almuerzo cerrado para todos los estudiantes de los grados 9 y 10. Los estudiantes de los grados 11 y 12 pueden salir de la propiedad QO para el almuerzo. Deben tener una tarjeta de identificación de estudiante que refleje su estado de grado 11 y 12. Si un estudiante de grado 11 o 12 quiere salir del campus durante el almuerzo, DEBE mostrar su tarjeta de identificación escolar del año actual al personal de la escuela. Sin excepciones.

Se recuerda a los estudiantes que cuando salen del campus y entran a la comunidad circundante, deben seguir el Código de Conducta Estudiantil de MCPS. El almuerzo abierto es un privilegio. Se puede revocar el permiso para salir del campus durante el almuerzo.

Para los estudiantes de 11th o 12th grado que salen del campus para el almuerzo abierto, los estudiantes deben:

  • muestre su tarjeta de identificación escolar del año actual para registrarse con el personal en cualquiera de estas dos salidas: la cancha de tenis/salida de Safeway.

  • la salida de la biblioteca de bus loop/QO.

  • no acceder a los vehículos y/o salir del campus en un vehículo sin el permiso del personal.

  • regresar al edificio y llegar a clase a tiempo.

  • use el paso de peatones y las aceras únicamente.

  • siga las instrucciones del personal al cruzar la calle.

  • comportarse cortés y respetuosamente con el personal, con otros estudiantes, con el público y con los establecimientos comerciales de nuestra comunidad.

Los estudiantes que intenten usar el pase de otra persona para el privilegio de almuerzo abierto resultarán en la revocación de ambos estudiantes. No se permiten visitantes en el comedor ni en otras áreas de la escuela sin permiso y deben estar claramente identificados con un gafete de visitante. Como recordatorio, a los estudiantes no se les permite recibir alimentos fuera del campus en la escuela. Cualquier comida entregada se mantendrá en el centro de bienvenida y estará disponible para recogerla al final del día escolar.

Consecuencias por violar la política de almuerzo:

  • 1st infracción: un recordatorio y documentación administrativa

  • 2nd infracción: igual que la anterior y notificación a los padres

  • 3rd violación: igual que arriba y referencia y tutoría de almuerzo restaurativo a la que el estudiante debe asistir

  • 4th infracción: almuerzo abierto revocado (si corresponde)

No vamos a renunciar a esta política y necesitamos el apoyo de todos. Esta política requiere un compromiso compartido por todos. Si tiene preguntas o inquietudes, comuníquese con el administrador del nivel de grado de sus estudiantes o conmigo mismo.

Signs of Suicide

MCPS remains committed to sharing information and resources about mental health topics that could potentially impact students. We know that the teenage years are marked by a roller-coaster ride of emotions—challenging for teens, their parents/ guardians, and educators. It is easy to misread depression as normal adolescent turmoil; however, depression appears to be occurring at a much earlier age than before. The prevalence of depression in adolescents and young adults increased from 8.7 percent in 2006 to 11.3 percent in 2014 (Mojtabai, et. al, 2016). Suicide also is the second leading cause of death among 11–18 year old youth in the United States (Centers for Disease Control, 2015). To proactively address this issue, MCPS is enhancing its suicide prevention curriculum using the Signs of Suicide ® (SOS ® ) Prevention Program. The SOS ® Program is a youth suicide prevention program that has demonstrated an improvement in students’ knowledge and adaptive attitudes towards suicide risk and depression, as well as a reduction in actual suicide attempts.

All students in Grades 6 through 12 will participate in the Signs of Suicide ® (SOS ® ) Prevention Program. The program will be implemented at Quince Orchard High School on Thursday, March 23, 2023, during Cougars Connect. Students also receive handouts that include the Act to Save a Life student newsletter and a list of school, local, and national resources that are available on mental health needs. A copy of the resource list is attached. If you have any questions or concerns about this program, please do not hesitate to contact Douglas Rivera, Resource Counselor at Douglas_A_Rivera@mcpsmd.org.

MCPS Tutoring at Quince Orchard

For additional support, a limited amount of QO staff members serve as MCPS tutors who help students with content recovery, IEP goals & preparation for upcoming learning in their classes. The best candidates for this program are those who are available after school for an hour 2-3 times a week (provided we have a tutor available).

MCPS provides free online homework help through FEV and Tutor Me, platforms that run through Clever and have 24/7 access. Students can book virtual sessions with certified tutors with or without cameras to get their questions answered.

Note: MCPS tutoring is not homework help. Students can obtain homework help from our external vendors Tutor Me and FEV. These vendors are open 24/7, so they are a great option for students who can’t typically meet with a tutor after school. They can also help across subject areas, whereas our QO tutors only tutor in the subject areas that they teach or support, so a general referral cannot be honored by our in-house structure.

Please contact Skyra Blanchard or Melissa Brown know if you have any questions.

5 Things to Know from MCPS - Thursday 3/23/23

1. Revised Message Regarding the Use of Inclusive Texts

MCPS expects all classrooms to be inclusive and safe spaces for students, including those who identify as LGBTQ+ or have family members in the LGBTQ+ community. A broad representation of personal characteristics within curricular or instructional materials promotes this desired outcome. Therefore, as with all curriculum resources, there is an expectation that teachers utilize these inclusive lessons and texts with all students.

As is standard practice, when planning for instruction teachers/schools are encouraged to utilize a variety of resources to continue to promote an inclusive environment as outlined in the MCPS Core Values and Board Policy. Students and families may not choose to opt out of engaging with any instructional materials, other than “Family Life and Human Sexuality Unit of Instruction'' which is specifically permitted by Maryland law. As such, teachers will not send home letters to inform families when inclusive books are read in the future.

2. Kindergarten Registration Opens March 27 for the Next School Year

Registration opens on March 27 for parents who wish to register their child for kindergarten for the 2023-2024 school year. Children must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2023. For more information about eligibility guidelines, registration or required documents to complete an application, call 240-740-4006 or visit the kindergarten enrollment website.
Learn more about the online registration process.

3. Next Family Fentanyl Forum Set for Saturday, March 25

Montgomery Goes Purple, in partnership with MCPS, is hosting a third Family Forum on Fentanyl from 9 a.m.–noon on Sat., March 25, at Paint Branch High School. This forum will focus on in-depth learning opportunities with dozens of sessions, as well as Narcan training, resource tables and opportunities for fitness. The forum will include sessions for youth and adults, individually and jointly, in English and Spanish. Discussion topics will include:

  • Starting a conversation with your child

  • Starting a conversation with your parent

  • Mental health care

  • Finding and accessing resources

  • Healthy boundaries with friends

Paint Branch is located at 14121 Old Columbia Pike in Burtonsville.


4. SSL Hours Documentation Deadline is March 30

Students who wish to earn the Certificate of Meritorious Service (for seniors who have 240 or more SSL hours documented on their record) or the Superintendent’s SSL Award (which is awarded one time to students who meet the 75 hour graduation requirement during middle school), must submit all SSL forms to their school’s SSL coordinator by March 30.

MCPS students must earn at least 75 SSL hours to graduate from high school, and Spring break is a wonderful time for students to participate in SSL opportunities! All other SSL forms should be submitted on a rolling basis, but no later than the deadline of June 2.

5. Spotlighting our Great Students and Staff

Students Named Carson Scholars

Three MCPS students have been named Carson Scholars, earning $1,000 college scholarships. Carson Scholars are students in grades 4-11 who excel academically, donate their time and talents to others, and demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and humanitarian qualities. MCPS students who are first-time scholarship recipients are:

  • Taian Chen, Northwest High School

  • Claire Kirner, Odessa Shannon Middle School

  • Allison Xu, Walter Johnson High School

Six additional MCPS students reaffirmed their status as Carson Scholars for maintaining a 3.75 grade point average. Read more.

Hundreds of students participated in the 12th Annual Minority Scholars Retreat

The Minority Scholars Program (MSP), a student-led initiative, held its 12th annual retreat at Northwest High School on March 18. Seventeen years ago, MSP began as a student-driven initiative aimed at tackling the opportunity gap. Through student leadership and activism, it has served as a vehicle and a blueprint for creating change.
