SY20 TCES Family Issue #26

March 25, 2020

Greetings Town Creek Families,

I hope this communication finds you and your family healthy and strong. We are living through an incredibly difficult and confusing time. Given the announcements made during Governor Hogan's Press Conference this morning, many are wondering about our school system’s response. Know that plans are in the works and we will be receiving additional information soon.

As time permits, please take the SMCPS Internet Access Survey and continue to check smcps.org for updates.

TCES teachers, staff and I would like for our students to know that we miss them! Our TCES team (including you) is outstanding. We are staying positive and ready to work together.

Please take care, stay well, and keep smiling.


Lindsay Brenfleck
