  • Grab and Go meals for Remote Learners and Online Academy Learners

    All students, regardless of whether they are attending in person instruction, on remote learning days, or attending the MCPS Online Academy will have the opportunity to receive food services every school day. Regular meal prices, including free and reduced options, will apply. 
    • For those students who are participating in remote learning or the MCPS Online Academy, they can access meals at any school building.  
    • If students have transportation issues, they can take home extra meals on their last day of in-person instruction or pickup multiple meals at a time. 
    • Anyone can pick up meals on behalf of a student. 
    • Please make sure you have the student’s ID number so that meals can be appropriately charged to your student’s account. 


    Families can pick up these meals at the back kitchen door on Hastings near the recycling bin between 10:30 and 11:30 daily.
    A sign will be posted there.

     I also encourage any families to consider completing a Free and Reduced Meal Application this school year. Many have experienced changes to work schedules or hours and may qualify for support with the cost of student’s meals. Return the form to any school secretary.

  • ESSA State Report Cards

    The Office of Public Instruction released the 2017-18 school year report cards on Monday, April 22, 2019. The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires state, district, and school-level data to be displayed on report cards in a concise, understandable, and accessible manner for families and communities. The state, district, and local report cards will be available along with additional information on the OPI’s new report card webpage.  This data is already publicly available on the state’s GEMS Data warehouse. It is now being conveyed in an easier format for the public to understand.
