Each year the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) surveys parents of children receiving special education services in the State. The purpose of the survey – The Maryland Special Education Parent Involvement Survey – is to hear from parents about how well they think their child’s school is partnering with them and promoting parent involvement in their child’s education.

This Survey will help MSDE and each local jurisdiction understand how they can support you and support parents in educating Maryland’s children with disabilities. Help Spread the Word!

Preventing the Spread of Germs

Please remind your children to wash their hands before/after using the bathroom, before eating lunch, after blowing their nose, and after coughing/sneezing into their hands. The nurse has been getting a lot of kids with fevers this week, and we are trying to prevent the spread of germs. Remind them to wash their hands for at least 20 seconds (sing happy birthday), and have them wet hands first, then use soap, then rinse. Thank you!

Please Update Your Information

To ensure you get school closing information quickly please make sure the main office as your most up to date phone number and email.

Chronic Absences

Too many absences, excused or unexcused, can keep students from succeeding in school and in life. How many are too many? 10% of the school year—that’s 18 missed days or 2 days a month—can knock students off track and put them behind. Leaving early on a Wednesday, even though it's the early release day can negatively impact your child's education. Students who miss too much school score lower on tests in every state and city tested. Chronic absence affects all kids and not just the absent ones.
