First-quarter progress reports are currently available for families, who can log into SchoolMax to view grades.

Parent-teacher conferences will be held on Monday, Oct. 12, with no classes for students that day. Parents are urged to schedule a check-in with teachers to discuss student progress.

Free Meals

Free meals are available for all students on Mondays and Wednesdays between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. To pick up a meal, visit a neighborhood school or a school close to home. Meals can also be delivered — just look for the school bus at a community meal delivery site.

Parent Survey

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect everyone in countless ways, PGCPS administrators, teachers and staff continue to adapt their practices to meet the needs of students and families.
Six weeks into the school year, parents can take a survey to assess how distance learning is working for their family.

To share experiences, the Fall Parent Distance Learning Survey should be completed by Sunday, Oct. 18. Go to the PGCPS website for more information on the survey.

Immunization Clinics

PGCPS will offer free immunization clinics in high school wellness centers to assist families in meeting immunization requirements.

Families must register online for an appointment for the services which are offered in collaboration with the Prince George’s County Health Department and the Maryland Partnership for Prevention.

Hāpara Instructional Suite

Beginning this week, PGCPS will be introducing the Hāpara Instructional Suite, a classroom management tool compatible with Google Classroom.

Hāpara, which allows teachers to deliver instruction tailored to meet individual student needs, also encourages organization and time management skills with a Student Dashboard that gathers digital school work from Google Classroom and Google Drive into one central location.

Teachers will have access to student documents and online activity through their PGCPS-issued accounts, including:

– Visibility into web activity when students are logged in to their school account during instructional hours.
– Real-time access to provide specific guidance and feedback to struggling students.
– A place to engage in classroom work so students can have personalized learning experiences.
