The issues with the phones continue, but Verizon as determined that this is a county-wide problem, not just a school system issue. Verizon is working to solve the issue.

Another work around to the phone problem is to dial Southern Middle School at 301-334-8881 or Northern Middle School at 301-746-8165. When prompted to put in a 4 digit extension, type in the last 4 numbers of the school or office you desire to contact.
Example: If trying to contact Broad Ford Elementary School, dial Southern Middle at 301-334-8881, then type in 9445 for Broad Ford.

Phones at the Central Office and at all schools are not working properly. The schools and offices are not able to receive calls. When the phone calls are answered, nothing can be heard. The school system is working with Verizon to correct the problem.
If there is an immediate message that needs to be conveyed to a particular school, please email the Public Information Office at public.info@garrettcountyschools . The Public Information Office will then relay the message to the school.
