Dear Patapsco Families,
We are excitedly preparing to receive students back in our building starting on Monday, March 1st. The majority of our amazing staff returned to the building today, and they are looking forward to meeting with some of our students (Group E students), in-person, on Monday. Thank you to our FANTASTIC PTA and STUDENTS who welcomed us with notes and signs on our sidewalks. They also provided a delicious boxed lunch for our staff! To our PTA- thank you!
ALL FAMILIES need to know that starting on Monday, March 1st, there will be a change to our daily schedule. It will be expected that ALL STUDENTS, those who are physically in the building, and those who will continue to engage with instruction virtually, follow this updated schedule, beginning on Monday, March 1st. This will be our schedule for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. You can find a downloadable version HERE-. Here is our new schedule. Information is also posted on our website here.
