The following is a message from the MCPS Transportation Department we emailed to families earlier today: Parents, Given the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we cannot currently allow what we historically have called "note riders" -- that is, students who bring a note in order to ride a bus when they typically do not use MCPS transportation. For example, a student would not be able to bring a note indicating that he/she will ride a bus to a friend's house on a particular day. In the past, we've been able to accommodate those situations, but with our current set of COVID-19-related health requirements, this is not possible. However, we are able to work with families if a student who normally rides a bus needs to be dropped off at a different location. For example, some students may occasionally need to be dropped off at a relative's home. As we continue to receive health-related guidance, we'll update our procedures and share that information with you. Thank you and please stay healthy.
Reminder: Our first re-entry date for students currently enrolled in Distance-Learning is September 23. Please communicate with your school if your child plans to return to In-Person learning.
If you have a child enrolled in MCPS preschool, the following paperwork is required: Certified Birth Certificate Eye Exam Form Dental Exam Form Immunization Certificate Medical Exam (physical) If you haven't already, please turn these in at the MCPS central office or at your child's school. We also ask that if you have appointments scheduled for these exams, please let your child's teacher know.
