April 2, 2015 is Autism Awareness Day.  In observance of this day, students, faculty, and staff are invited to wear the color blue.  To read more about the cause, please access https://www.autismspeaks.org/liub.

IMPORTANT:  The water is safe to drink.  However, you are free to send your child with a water bottle if you wish.

FINAL DECISION MADE:  Prince George's County Public Schools has  determined that April 2, 1015 is not an official school day (2-hour early dismissal) for staff and students.

As you know, seven days have been missed this year due to inclement weather. Our school calendar had four inclement weather make-up days scheduled: June 18, 19, 22, 23, 2015, leaving us with three additional days to address. Today, the Maryland State Board of Education granted a waiver for two of the three days. The following outlines how we will adjust the calendar to accommodate the days missed:

  • April 2 has been converted into an instructional day with a two-hour early dismissal for students.

  • Spring Break, April 3-10, for students and teachers is not affected.

  • Inclement weather make-up days will be June 18, 19, 22, and 23. On June 22, school will dismiss two-hours early for students. June 23 is the last day for students and school will dismiss two-hours early. 

  • The last day for teachers is June 24.
