Make-up Days in April

Washington County Public Schools (WCPS) has designated April 9, 10, 13 and 28 as make-up days for the 2019-2020 academic year. This means students will continue to be engaged in online learning, which will allow the time to be counted towards the completion of the school year.

WCPS has not received direction from the State regarding how the COVID-19 school closures will affect the length of the school year. At this point, WCPS believes it is important that as many days count as possible.

April 9 and 13 were already identified in the academic calendar as potential make-up days. April 28 was primary election day, which has been delayed.

Third Marking Period Report Card Grades Coming Soon

Middle and high school grades will be posted to ParentVUE/StudentVUE on Friday, April 10.

Elementary school grades will be posted to ParentVUE/StudentVUE on Monday, April 13.

Report cards will be mailed through the U.S. Postal Service on Friday, April 17.

Frequently Asked Questions

WCPS has developed a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding how the COVID-19 school closure has affected continuity of learning and other school-related programs, services, and events.

We recognize there are still some areas where there are not yet clear answers, and in many of those cases WCPS is awaiting direction from the State. We will continue to keep our learning community updated as we receive new information.

Still Have Questions?

If you have additional questions during the school closure period, email COVID-19@wcps.k12.md.us. Inquiries will be handled and responded to by the appropriate staff.
