Information Regarding Coronavirus
After deliberation and consideration of public input, our MCPS Board of Trustees voted on May 1, 2020, to keep our schools on our remote learning plan through the remainder of the school year. If you are interested in some of the key issues that informed this decision, I have shared them at the bottom of this letter.
Our school campuses, office buildings, and playgrounds will remain closed until further notice.
We will work with administrators and our educators to finalize our grading information so that we can inform our families. In addition, our response team will start working on an “end-of-year” plan that includes operational topics such as, return of materials, locker/desk cleanout and other tasks we will need to accomplish in a safe manner as we think about wrapping up the end of the year.
For more information, please visit the Coronavirus Information webpage.
End of the School Year Pick up Information
Pick up and Turn in Days Parents should plan to come in to pick up packets of personal items such as school supplies, projects, tennis shoes and things from student desks or lockers. We will also have Spirit Week prizes and end of year reports packed in the pick up bags. During the Pick Up, we will collect devices that were checked out to students.
Pick Up Days are based off of LAST NAMES.
Last names beginning with A - L will pick up on June 8th from 12:00 - 2:00 PM or 4:00 - 6:00 PM.
Last names with M - Z will pick up on June 9th from 12:00 - 2:00 PM or 4:00 - 6:00 PM.
Hawthorne School Garden Summer Info
The Hawthorne School Garden will be open this summer! Garden City Harvest staff have been working hard to prepare and plant the garden with spring vegetables such as peas, radishes, and spinach, as well as summer produce like tomatoes and cucumbers. We missed seeing Hawthorne students in the garden this spring, but we hope to see you soon! Families are welcome to visit the garden and take home veggies through the Adopt-the-Garden and Open Garden Hours programs. Due to COVID-19, new cleaning procedures and other measures will be in place to keep the community safe and healthy. We hope you’ll join us in the garden this summer!
Weekly, beginning June 1st
We are looking for families to adopt-the-garden each week of the summer. You’ll help by opening the garden for a couple of hours during the week, whenever it fits into your schedule. We encourage you to do some light weeding and harvesting. Some perks of the job: taking home free, fresh produce and enjoying the outdoors!
Interested? Great! Email School Gardens Manager Hannah Boe at email@example.com to sign up.
Open Garden Hours
June 23rd - August 11th
School Gardens Manager Hannah will be in the garden every Tuesday afternoon this summer. Come visit the garden, help out, learn about gardening, connect with neighbors, and take home some fresh fruits and vegetables!

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.
