MCPS Say Yes To The Test!

One significant mitigation tactic Montgomery County Public Schools will use this fall is random COVID-19 screening tests and rapid testing across grades. MCPS, in partnership with the Maryland Department of Health, is offering COVID tests to students at no cost. Testing requires parent permission so "Say Yes to the Test". (Form found HERE)

  • Screening Testing-The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends random asymptomatic COVID-19 testing because it detects and can limit the spread of the virus, even in the absence of visible symptoms. 
  • Rapid Testing- Staff from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will determine that a COVID-19 rapid test should be administered when a student presents to a health room with potential COVID-19 symptoms.

If your child tests positive for COVID-19 

2 Hour Delay/Inclement Weather Schedule: 

MCPS has asked schools to develop a virtual schedule to implement if we have additional inclement weather days this school year. If MCPSannounces a virtual learning day during inclement weather, students will be instructed via Zoom with their classroom teacher following a 2-hour delay schedule. Classroom teachers will be sending out the necessary Zoom information via Synergy Mail on these days.  Our school will be following this schedule (link).

 

Arrival/Dismissal Information

 

  • Bus Riders
  • Car Riders/Walkers – As a part of our dismissal procedures, you will be assigned a pick-up number to display in the front window of your car on the passenger side. If you are a walker, you must show a sign with your number when picking up your child. This will assist school staff with locating your child and minimize the long lines waiting to pick up students.
