    SURVEY for in-person hybrid instruction

    Dear Parents,

    We are reaching out to you through this survey to gather your intentions regarding your child or children returning to in-person hybrid instruction when schools reopen for the remainder of the school year. Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) is providing the option for parents and guardians to choose between continuing with at-home full distance learning or returning to in-person hybrid instruction. Hybrid instruction means part time in-person instruction and part time at-home learning.  Students will be in school for two days each week. Information on full distance learning, in-person hybrid instruction and the school reopening plan can be found on the PGCPS website. 

    Please take the time to answer the survey. You will be prompted to complete a survey for each child within your household.  


    The deadline to complete the survey is Sunday, February 28, 2021. If a parent/guardian does not complete the survey by the February 28, 2021 deadline, the system will select your child for in-person hybrid instruction through the last day of school.
