Ebola Virus Disease Information
The St. Mary's county Health Department (SMCHD) has established a webpage (www.smchd.org/ebola) for local
residents to get more information about Ebola Virus Disease and local preparedness activities. To learn more about Ebola Virus Disease or recommendations for travelers, visit this new resource, and also what is available through the U.S. Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) at www.cdc.gov/ebola.
The Reflections program encourages students to explore their talents and express themselves through the Arts. The theme is “The World Would Be a Better Place if…” we are asking students to simply reflect what this means to them in the categories of: visual arts, music composition, photography, dance choreography, literature, and film production. It’s as simple as choosing one or more categories to enter into and completing an entry form for each. The deadline for entries is in the main office. Please see the official rules for each category along with the general rules.
Resolving School Concerns and Complaints
All St. Mary’s County Public School System (SMCPS) employees are committed to parental, family, and community involvement in the educational process. We believe that our staff should encourage and engage parents/guardians, families, and community members as partners in educating our children. Together we can ensure success in school.
It is recognized that there will be times when a parent/guardian may need to ask school system employees to address a concern. This brochure outlines the role of each individual and the steps to follow when addressing school-based concerns. We will continually strive to resolve all inquiries or problems as quickly as possible so that we can reach a mutual understanding that serves in the best interest of every SMCPS student.
