- Email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Go to 45 West Gude Drive in Rockville between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday to Friday
At 45 West Gude drive, parents pull in the driveway, turn left, park and walk towards the front of the building. Stand in a socially distanced line and wait for assistance.
Students and families are financially responsible for intentional or accidental damage of any Chromebook loaned to the student. Please take the Chromebook to 45 West Gude Drive and explain what happened.
Chromebook Damage Financial Responsibility
Charges for damage.
No exchanges at Barnsley Elementary
MCPS set up the site at 45 West Gude Drive so that there is a technician available to parents Monday through Friday. We are not exchanging Lenovo Chromebooks at Barnsley as we are not supposed to collect non-working Chromebooks, per MCPS. Thank you for your understanding.

MD State Report Card
Attached is a letter in English and Spanish with information about the 2019 Maryland State Report Card and the performance of our school. We scored a 73.6% on the scoring criteria and earned 4 out of 5 stars. We also were at the 81st percentile of all schools in Maryland. This is a wonderful accomplishment and a testament of the hard work of our staff, the partnership of our families, and the amazing students we support!

Per MCPS regulations, all volunteers must be trained in recognizing child abuse and neglect prior to volunteering at Barnsley or chaperoning field trips. Prior to volunteering, you must log on to https://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/childabuseandneglect/, complete the training, and bring a printed copy of the confirmation you receive to the main office. If you took this training last year, you do not need to take it this year.
