Principal Carothers Weekly Message March 22-28, 2020

Hello, Poolesville Staff, Parents, and Students,

Good afternoon.  I know this has been a difficult week for many of us, as we remain socially distant and adjust to new norms and routines.  Personally, as much as I miss our students and staff, I am comforted in knowing these are necessary precautions to keep us all safe.  Before I get to the summary of updates and information, I want to send a specific message of gratitude to our building service staff.  They have been working hard each day to sanitize the building and prepare for students and staff to return.  While many of us are teleworking, this team is reporting each day and working together to ensure the safety of our students.  I am grateful for their diligence and dedication.  To ensure their work is not compromised, the building will remain closed to staff, students, and community members this week.  If you have any specific needs, please email me directly; I will work with you to try and meet those needs. 

As a reminder, your most updated and official area for information is the MCPS Coronavirus website:  https://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/coronavirus/.  I have summarized some of the information below:

I will continue to communicate information to you as it becomes available.  In the meantime, please do not hesitate to email me with any questions.  I cannot wait to see everybody again, and I encourage our entire student body and community to stay safe and healthy.  Thank you. 

Falcons Fly High!
