Students should check their grades and check in with their teachers if they need support. It's early in the semester, so this is a great time to get on top of the learning so students don't fall behind.

Parents and caregivers can stay on top of monitoring your student's grade by using the ParentVUE App to access your ParentVUE account right on your phone. Find Quick One-Pagers here! If you need more support, there will be hands on support at Back to School Night.

MCPS MESSAGE: COVID-19 Outbreak Measures and Vaccine News

Temporary outbreak precautions for individual classrooms where COVID-19 is spreading rapidly helps prevent spread to vulnerable individuals and to the rest of school. Check out the FAQ page for more information about how outbreaks are managed. The newly approved COVID-19 updated vaccine will be available in our area in the next few weeks. For information about COVID-19, influenza and RSV vaccine availability, refer to Vaccines.Gov.

A medida que aumentan los nuevos casos de COVID-19 a nivel local, hemos visto brotes en varias escuelas de todo el condado. Las precauciones temporales contra los brotes para las aulas individuales donde el COVID-19 se está propagando rápidamente ayudan a prevenir la propagación a personas vulnerables y al resto de la escuela. Consulte la página de preguntas frecuentes para obtener más información sobre cómo se gestionan los brotes. La vacuna actualizada contra el COVID-19 recientemente aprobada estará disponible en nuestra área en las próximas semanas.

Each month on the first Friday of the month, we will clear out the Lost and Found. Please be sure to tell your student to check for lost items in the Lost and Found (located on the cafeteria stage). We already have several (very nice) water bottles and school supplies on the stage.

*We will not begin clearing the Lost and Found until the first Friday in October to provide additional time for students to check for lost items.
