I hope this communication finds you and your loved ones well! I wanted to take a moment to let you know that at our regularly scheduled UMASD School Board meeting held last evening, the Board voted to NOT allow the elementary students to return to school on Wednesday, November 4, 2020. The Board is deeply concerned about the recent increase in COVID-19 cases not only within Montgomery County but also around the State and Nation as well. I absolutely share that concern along with the concern about our ability to provide any form of continuity with the uncertainty of starting school and then having to make quick decisions to close school due to an outbreak of COVID-19.
With that being said, I apologize for any inconveniences this may cause but please know that I believe this is the best course of action considering the changing climate as it relates to COVID-19. At this point in time all students will continue to be taught via the virtual format with their current teachers and we will continue to monitor all things related to COVID-19 as we are still shooting for our original return to full in-person education with a virtual option on January 4, 2021!
I sincerely appreciate your understanding and patience during these unprecedented times as we will continue to keep the safety of those we serve as our number one priority!
Be well and stay safe,
