  • Announcement

    Parents and Friends,

    The staff and I would like to welcome you and your child to the 2020-2021school year.  I would like to thank you and your child for your resilience during the 2019-2020 second semester as we experienced unprecedented challenges but we are encouraged by the leadership of the Prince George’s County Board of Education and CEO Dr. Goldson in their proactive approach to addressing these challenges.

    As you may know, the Prince Georges County school system will begin the upcoming school year in Distance Learning out of the concern for safety and well-being of the entire school community. The first day of school will be on Monday, August 31, 2020.  However, prior to our students returning there is pertinent information that you should be aware of. On Tuesday, August 25 from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm we will be distributing chromebooks to our first through fifth grade students who have not received a chromebook during the 2019-2020 school year. The distribution will occur in the parking lot of Isaac Gourdine Middle School.  We have a limited amount of chromebooks at this time.  If we happened to run out of chromebooks, we will provide you one when the school system procures additional devices, which should occur by September 21, 2020 because there has been a high demand for electronic devices as a result of distance education throughout the nation. Once received, you will be notified and a date and time will be scheduled for you to pick up a device. Your understanding is appreciated. 

    Additionally, our Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students will participate in a “Mock Day” on Friday, August 28th at 9:00AM. All students will join their Google Classroom to meet their teacher and learn about how their instructional day will look.

                Finally, our virtual “Back To School Night” is scheduled for Friday, August 28th at 5:00 pm. We are looking forward to seeing you virtually.
