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 1,665 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Garrett County. Current metrics from the Garrett County Health Department are: 7-Day Positivity Percentage: 15.0%; 7-Day Case Rate Per 100,000: 51.2.

We encourage you to digitize as much or all school work as possible to the classroom teacher. At this time, there is another pick up to be scheduled. Please separate into the appropriate classroom for drop off by classroom and by math. If you or anyone in your household who is displaying symptoms or been in contact with the virus should self quarantine. If you need a packet, contact Mrs. Uphold and one will be mailed to you. We do not want packets returned until you and your family are symptom free for 15 days.

Please make contact with your child's teacher during this time for clarification and instruction of the learning packets being made available on line and in paper packets. You may do this by email, text or phone call.
