Information for Quarantined Students!
Assignments - Students should have their CCPS-issued device (iPad or laptop) with a charger at home. Teachers will post assignments on Google Classroom. They will also be available via email and can speak with a student via phone or Zoom if needed during the teacher's planning period.
Password: (school) lunch number (no space)
Tutoring - Quarantined students in need of help with assignments may connect with a tutor at the school. Zoom links for tutors may be found on the student’s Google Classroom.
Elementary School: 4:00 to 5:00 pm, Monday through Thursday, beginning Thursday, September 23
Middle school hours: 3:00 to 4:00 pm, Monday through Thursday, beginning Thursday, September 23
High school hours: 3:00 to 4:00 pm, Monday through Thursday, beginning Monday, October 11
Join the Zoom early so teachers have enough time to help you.
If a teacher is with another student, they may message you to wait a few minutes, ask you to join at a later time, or work with multiple students at a time.
If there is a day a teacher is unavailable, the sheet will say “Unavailable” and the date, next to the teacher’s name - log in the next day for help.
Internet Access - If your home does not have internet access (to connect with Google Classroom), a Kajeet Smartspot may be available through the school. If the device does not enable connectivity, please contact the school.
School Meals - Students who are not in school due to being quarantined as still eligible for free meals. Families interested in receiving meals may complete a request form (found on the school website: carolineschools.org - About Us - Food Services). Questions or concerns may be directed to Caroline County Public Schools Food Services, 410-479-3261.
Need Service Learning Hours?
This Week's Lunch Menu!
○ The Caroline County Public School system encourages all students to dress in a manner which
promotes school discipline, safety, health, positive self-concept, a comfortable and pleasant learning environment, and a positive school image to the community at large. Students are expected to show self-pride and pride in their and school related activities.
Rips should be minimal and not revealing
Shorts should be appropriate in length (mid thigh) without being revealing
Shirts should be appropriate in length, no midriff, and in cut (not low/revealing)
Undergarments should not be seen.
No hats, sunglasses, or head coverings.
Flip flops are allowed.
If a student is viewed by an teacher/administrator to be in violation of the dress code, he/she will
be asked to change (we have a few items on hand) or asked to have a parent/guardian bring a change of clothes to school.

Yearly Student Emergency Forms- Now all online
CCPS uses an online form (no paper!) to verify or update student information through the PowerSchool Parent Portal. The process typically takes less than five minutes per student, and allows families to verify that all of the student's data is correct and provide updates for any important data that has changed. This process replaces the old paper form sent home in previous years. Parents, please check your email for this information from:
Please note: If the student’s address has changed, proof of residence will be required. This may be uploaded through PowerSchool or provided directly to the school.
For more information, please see the CCPS news post on this topic.
