Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. On Monday, August 30, MCPS opened its doors to nearly 160,000 students. For our teachers, staff, and administrators, this is a day we have been anticipating for months and preparing for all summer. We are excited to welcome our students back for in-person teaching and learning, five days a week. In this video, we share our enthusiasm for the 2021-2022 school year, and we share our appreciation for the incredibly hard work of our staff. They make it happen for our students! We are ready. Welcome back!
