The Garrett County Board of Education voted on January 12, 2021, to accept the Superintendent’s recommendation to remain in the “red model” in which students are learning virtually. Students will begin transitioning back to in-person learning when the Garrett County metrics are at 5% or less positivity rate and 15 or less per 100,000 for 14 consecutive days.

Anyone with a question or concern may contact, and you will receive a response.

There have been 1,750 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Garrett County. Current metrics from the Garrett County Health Department are: 7-Day Positivity Percentage: 11.92%; 7-Day Case Rate Per 100,000: 30.03.

Message from Art Teachers:

Please be sure to submit pictures of your artwork in schoology in order to receive credit. Though, it may work for short assignments in other content areas, simply holding up your artwork does not give ample time for grading. Mrs. Frederick and Mrs. Winebrenner thank you in advance for your support in this matter!
