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.

Sunshine Farm


Welcome to Crellin's Sunshine Farm!
...and everywhere the Crellin kids went the lambs were sure to go!
The students love to shovel the barnyard...
other times they just like to rest their heads!
We are glad the kids are not afraid of hard work.  
Feeding the lambs is a favorite chore for the kids.
Our lambs get lots of attention!
The lambs look forward to playtime with students.
Ashley Walters and Lucas Muenchow helped deliver new residents to Sunshine Farm.
Students were excited and now like to "cuddle" with the chickens! 
Searching for eggs is a new barn chore our students look forward to!
The chickens like to get outside through their own special door.
Ms. Sunshine found that she could fit through the chicken's door...
...and when she did she helped herself to the chickens' food. This made for some very unhappy chickens!
The lambs weren't the only ones using the chicken's door!
We had our friends at Northern High School cut us some boards and Mr. Doug drilled them on the frame to make the door smaller.
Now the lambs are unable to fit through the door... although they continue to try! There is always some excitement around here!
Ms DeWitt was worried that our hens might be cold with the low temperatures we have had lately. She decided to spend her snow days knitting the hens sweaters! Here she is working with Emilee to dress the hen in her new outfit.
Although skeptical at first, the hen decided it was best to let the barn babes play house and dress her. She waited patiently as Mrs. German fitted the lime green sweater over her feathers and Ms. DeWitt secured the velcro...a kodak moment!
The next lucky hen would be wearing a bright red match her comb!
She was more than happy to model her new look for the photographer.
Strutting around the barnyard...making the others envious!
Students watch as Ms. Sunshine gives a hen (wearing a new sweater) a ride on her back.
Even in the cold weather students assist with barn chores.
The sheep anxiously wait for the children to arrive each morning.
