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 public.info@garrettcountyschools.org, and you will receive a response.

We are continuing to implement our SOAR behavior program at Friendsville Elementary School. This behavior program concentrates on rewarding students when they exhibit positive behavior. Students receive SOAR coupons to spend for various items in our SOAR store. The school staff is focused on working with students and their families to promote positive behavior in all school settings.
