First Day of School 2020


Return to In-Person Learning

Earlier this month the Montgomery County Board of Education voted to begin a phased return of students to in-person learning, beginning in March. Virtual learning will continue for all students until the date designated for the start of in-person learning for their grade level.  In addition, all families who would like for their students to continue virtual learning for the remainder of the school year will be able to do so.  If you would like to make a change from virtual to partial in-person, or from partial in-person to virtual, please click here for more information.
