Week of April 20th Message from Ms. Booker // A Message from Ms. Booker (SPN)

Due to Governor Hogan's stay at home directive, the office will be closed until further notice but our office staff is working remotely.  Families who need to communicate with the school, please do so via email or by leaving a message on the school phone and a staff member will get back in touch with you.  Stay safe, stay healthy.

Comcast is taking immediate steps to help connect more low-income families to the Internet at home. Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, anyone who signs up for Internet Essentials will receive two free months of Internet service. We are also increasing the speed of the program to 25 Mbps downloads, and 3 Mbps uploads for all new and existing customers.  After your first two free months expire, you can either cancel the service (which you can do at any time) or keep it as a regular paying Internet Essentials customer. You will receive an easy to use self-install-kit that includes a cable modem (to receive service at your home) with a WiFi router (to connect your devices without wires). There is no term contract or credit check and no shipping fee for equipment.  .
