 Return and Retrieval Process

Arriving by Car

Before your visit, prepare items for return based on the directions listed below (Athletic uniforms, Chromebooks, Textbooks, Instructional Items).  Write the name of each student retrieving/returning items on a piece of paper in font large enough to be easily read from the curb.  

 When you arrive at school, enter the student parking lot on Willard Road.  Staff will direct you toward the front of the school and the three stations there.  Please remain in your car at all times.

Arriving by Foot

Before your visit, prepare items for return based on the directions below (Athletic uniforms, Chromebooks, Textbooks, Instructional Items).  Write the name of each student retrieving/returning items large enough to be easily read from 6-8 feet away.  Wear a mask and please remain at least six feet from others during your visit.  When you arrive at school, go to the front of the building where a staff member will assist you. 

Stations

Station 1: Return of Athletic Equipment and Uniforms 

Uniforms and small items may be returned in one bag with the student's name and ID number on the bag.  Larger items that do not fit into bags should be individually labeled. 

Chromebooks will also be returned at this station by SENIORS ONLY.  Underclassmen may keep their Chromebooks through the summer. Seniors should return Chromebooks during the time assigned above.  Please label the Chromebook with the student name and ID number.

Station 2: Return of Textbooks, Media Center Books, Instructional Items 

Label each item with the student's name and ID number.  Label the outside of textbooks. Do not wrap items individually.  Items may be delivered in one bag; each item in the bag should be labeled.  

Station 3: Retrieval of Items 

All hallway lockers and locker room lockers have been cleared of student items.  Everything found in lockers is bagged and labeled for pick up, whether or not a request was made through the Google form sent over the past two weeks.  Other items requested by students have been sought and, when found, prepared for pick up.  Unfortunately, some items requested were not found.    Many students requested artwork.  In most cases, artwork could not be readily identified and prepared for pick up next week.  Please know, the school will store all student belongings, including artwork, until further notice and a process for distribution has been determined.  

When you reach the item retrieval station, staff will check your name to see if we have anything to return to you at this time.  Items will be bagged and may be passed through a window or placed in the back seat of your vehicle. 

Obligations

We will not be accepting payment for obligations in person next week. Obligations may be paid on-line at https://osp.osmsinc.com/montgomerymd/login.aspx?returnurl=payment.aspx.  Please contact Ms. Krouner (Susan_L_Krouner@mcpsmd.org) with any questions.  

Medication

Under the direction of DHHS, we will only be returning epinephrine autoinjectors (Epi-Pens) and inhalers at this point.  All other medicine and medical supplies will be returned at a later date as determined by DHHS staff.  

Seniors

This process applies to any Chromebooks or MiFi devices you signed out during the closure, as well as any remaining textbooks and Media Center materials.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ms. Jennifer Herman (Jennifer_L_Herman@mcpsmd.org).
