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.

Kindergarten 2014-2015

During the Summer Science Camp, kindergarten students explored the vegetable garden.
They were excited about tasting what they found growing in the raised beds.
They quickly learned a litte dirt on your vegetable won't hurt you!
Students helped prepare lunch - they even used some of the vegetables harvested from our garden.
Before heading to the Snowy Creek, students learned about the species they might find.
With the help of fifth grade, our youngest scientists explore the Creek.
Their excitment when identifying a species was contagious!
Students created three-dimensional figures of the species they found in the Creek.
Students invited their Grandparents to school to celebrate Grandparents Day.  They ate lunch then gave each grandparent a homemade gift.
Our kindergarten scientists are conducting research on the animals found in our schoolyard. They have set up scent stations and are monitoring the animals visiting by examining tracks found at each station and the photographs on the trail cameras. 
They used the fox urine scent.
Students set up the stations near Snowy Creek...
...and in our hemlock forest. 
At the Snowy Creek station a house cat made frequent visits.
An unknown visitor also made visits to the Snowy Creek Station.
