Pickup and Drop Off of Student Items


Dear Patapsco families: 

It is hard to believe that it is almost June and near the end of this school year. Over the past couple of weeks, we have received several requests from families regarding picking up or dropping off items to the school. Items that may need to be picked up include such things as medications, eyeglasses, and personal instruments. Families who may be moving, and will not be back in a HCPSS school next year, have also asked about returning items to Patapsco Middle prior to their move.

In the next couple of weeks, you will be given an opportunity to come to Patapsco to pick-up CRITICAL items your child left at school, or to return items if your child is NOT returning to an HCPSS school next year.  Unfortunately, we are not able to allow students and their families inside of the school. However, we will be able to retrieve critical items for you, that you will be able to pick-up outside on a specific date and time (date/time to be determined, probably during the week of June 8). In order to help us help you, we ask that you complete the following survey by June 1, 2020.

Please complete this survey if:

  • Your student left a critical item at school that you need to pick up.

  • Your student is not returning to a HCPSS school next year and you need to return items.

We will only be able to return items to parents/guardians/students if you complete this survey by Monday, June 1. Requests made once this survey closes, or on the date of pick-up, will not be able to be honored as we need to coordinate with multiple staff in order to implement this process..  Thank you for understanding and for your support.

We will be in contact with more information regarding the process, specific date, and window of time for drop-off/pick-up items. Once again, here is the link to the survey.

Thank you in advance for helping us ensure a safe and orderly plan for the pick-up and drop-off of items, and do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.

Be well and stay safe!

*Please note: If your child IS returning to any HCPSS school (to Patapsco or any other HCPSS school) for the 2020/21 school year, you should NOT return HCPSS property at this time, this includes Chromebooks. Once school resumes in school buildings, students will bring their school system property to whatever school they attend and it will be collected and redistributed to its original location. There is nothing that families staying in HCPSS need to do, even if your student is being redistricted or your student is moving to a new school within HCPSS.
