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.

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.

M.A.D. Mondays (Make A Difference Monday):
We are starting a program, “Make A Difference Monday”, to supplement our food pantry at Hellgate High School. On Mondays, we are asking families who have the ability, to pick up just one extra non-perishable item during their weekly grocery shopping trips to donate to our supplemental pantry on M.A.D. Mondays. Your kids can drop off the items at the front office on their way in to school and help to restock the shelves which provide to so many who are struggling.
Many kids are going without these days and we are hoping you can make a difference! One extra box of granola bars, one can of tuna fish, a can of soup, a stick of deodorant – just one item per week will make a difference in the life of a child who is in need.
Please help us by supporting M.A.D. Mondays and together, we can truly make a difference. Thank you so much for your support!
If you have any questions, please contact Tracy Ledyard at extension 6062
