Yesterday you should have received an FCPS Find Out First message regarding an update following today’s Board of Education meeting. During a special Board of Education work session yesterday, the Board voted to rescind its April 14th decision to return elementary school students for four days of in person instruction weekly if families desired that option. Despite this change, the Board and FCPS Leadership, along with our TES staff, remain committed to returning as many students to the building as possible while adhering to health and safety protocols. As we await further direction, please know TPS staff continue to be available to support your child, and your family, in the fully virtual or hybrid learning formats. As soon as we have information, we will share it with you.

PTA for 2021-2022 School Year
Are you interested in becoming more involved in your school community? Do you want to help enhance your child’s learning experiences? If so, we need YOU!
We are looking for committed, caring and collaborative individuals to help serve on a Parent Teacher Association (PTA) Board. We believe a PTA plays an important role in the lives of the students, families and staff in our schools. We know that building a strong PTA will benefit our entire school community.
Please contact Heather Putnam (email@example.com or 240-236-0900) if you are interested in supporting our Thurmont Elementary & Primary Schools (TEPS) PTA.
