Delay in Hybrid Model
Due to worsening trends in health metrics, Frederick County Public Schools is delaying its plan to implement a hybrid learning model.
In its updated plan, teachers will return to buildings on Wednesday, January 27, with students returning as part of an in-person hybrid model on Tuesday, February 16, with Wednesday, February 3, and Wednesday February 10, serving as asynchronous learning days. If FCPS does not see positive trends in data by later this month, the implementation of the hybrid model will be delayed again with teachers returning Wednesday, February 10, and students returning Monday, March 1. In this scenario, Wednesday, February 17, and Wednesday, February 24, will be asynchronous learning days.
FCPS will also continue to monitor health metrics daily and consult with the Frederick County Health Department. This feedback will guide future decisions. FCPS encourages everyone in the community to follow all Frederick County Health Department and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
In the event of inclement weather, students will continue to engage in virtual instruction using the schedule that is currently in effect -- the schedule for all virtual or the schedule for the hybrid model.
An announcement cancelling small group instruction will be made by 5 a.m. on inclement weather days, and those students will also participate in virtual learning for the day.
If the weather event is significant enough to warrant closing FCPS offices, then an announcement will be made that the entire system is closed and NO virtual instruction will occur. This will be considered a "snow day" and the day will be made up as outlined in the FCPS Calendar Handbook.
For more information, please refer to FCPS Regulation 400-02: Closing of School due to Weather, Maintenance or Other Reasons.
FCPS has added a link on the school system's web homepage to the Maryland Department of Health's Coronavirus Dashboard. The dashboard features a Schools Data tab that serves as a resource for anyone who wants information about COVID outbreaks in school buildings.
Schools are listed as having an outbreak when the following occur:
*At least two confirmed COVID-19 cases among students/teachers/staff within a 14-day period, epidemiologically linked outside of household contacts; or
*Three or more classrooms or cohorts with cases from separate households that meet the classroom/cohort outbreak definition, occurring within 14 days; or
*Five percent or more unrelated students/teachers/staff with confirmed COVID-19 within a 14-day period (minimum of 10 unrelated students/teachers/staff).
FCPS also continues to link to the dashboard at www.fcps.org/update.

Hello Mustangs!! My name is Mrs. Renken and I am a graduate student at Frostburg State University. I am thrilled to be spending a few months at Myersville Elementary working with Mrs. Eccard as a School Counseling intern. Prior to entering graduate school, I taught Physical Education at the elementary and middle school levels. I have 3 young children and enjoy traveling, singing and exercising. I look forward to being a part of the Myersville community and getting to know each of you.
