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.

Dear Parents/Guardians,
I hope you everyone had a great week! We are ending this week with news that we will not be in school for the next two weeks. Your child is bringing home a folder/packet of work for this time off. This work counts as credit for the days missed. You will need to sign off on a calendar for each day and send back all completed work and materials with your child on the first day back. A video will be emailed to you.
April 9th~ Noon Dismissal
April 10th~ Good Friday; No School
April 11th~ No School, Easter Monday
April 17th~ PK and K to FSU Science Center (more information to follow)
Please be sure you are practicing essential skills with your child every evening! This is very important as we enter this break in your child’s daily education.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at school: 301-689-6132 during my planning from 9:15-10 or by email: If it concerns your child, it concerns me.
Stay safe and healthy! See you in two weeks!
Mrs. Nicklin and Mrs. T. Maust
