2021-2022 School Year Updates
Posted August 18, 2021
Washington County Public Schools (WCPS) is committed to supporting all students as we recover unfinished learning through the COVID-19 pandemic. If your child needs any additional support or guidance as we return to school, you are encouraged to reach out to the school principal and/or counselor to explore how your child’s needs may be met through options like tutoring, mentoring, and counseling.
Bus routes for the 2021-2022 school year are now posted on the WCPS website at: http://wcpsmd.com/transportation/bus-routes.
Families can also visit the e-Link website and enter their child’s grade and address to find pickup and dropoff times.
If you have questions or concerns regarding your child’s routing information, contact the WCPS Transportation Department at 301-766-2902.
Class Lists and Schedules
Class schedules and teacher lists are available in ParentVUE and StudentVUE. Students need to use their WCPS login information to sign on to their StudentVUE account. If parents/guardians need to create a ParentVUE account, please contact your child’s school to receive a pin code.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s class information, please contact the school directly for assistance.
Inclement Weather Days
Based on the May 2021 decision by the State Board of Education requiring that students receive 180 days of in-person instruction, WCPS anticipates the return of traditional “snow days” in the event of inclement weather. If schools are closed due to weather conditions, students will make up the date at another time during the year
Free Breakfast and Lunch
All students* who attend school in person are able to receive free breakfast and lunch for the entire 2021-2022 school year. There are no qualifications or restrictions to be served these meals.
Students may still purchase additional a la carte items by using cash or their MySchoolBucks account.
Families of students who qualify for free and reduced meals are encouraged to complete the annual application. This information was used to provide families the pandemic EBT (P-EBT) cards during the school closure periods. Free and reduced meal eligibility is also used for community services, waivers for testing, and college application fees among other uses.
*Free breakfast and lunch for all students does not apply to Washington County Technical High School students due the culinary arts program.
