Greetings from the Ridge:
As I am sure you received the update from Dr. Martirano about schools remaining closed until Friday, May 15th. We are in a good place to continue our distance learning. I know that many parents/guardians are concerned about senior events. My hope is, as it is with Dr. Martirano, that these senior events are postponed and not cancelled. I will let you know as we get more information.
Some senior parents have put out information about purchasing a sign in support of our seniors for your front yard. Please feel free to support all our seniors by purchasing one if you so desire.
I would be remiss if I didn’t let you know that I am so thankful for all the parents and guardians who are on the front lines, working so hard, to allow us to stay at home with our family and loved ones during this COVID-19 pandemic.
So much work is being done behind the scenes from police, firefighters, health care workers, truck drivers, grocery store employees, etc.
Please see the letter below that updates what the school week will look like for your student(s).
Take good care and stay safe, Tammy Goldeisen

AP Exam Updates
The AP exam schedule is posted on the CollegeBoard COVID-19 page. CollegeBoard will be running two at home testing windows, May 11-22 and June 1-5. Please check the site for specific content exam dates. The June window is in place to provide options for students who experience technical difficulties or have scheduling conflicts. Students should prepare to sit for the May exam.
As CollegeBoard provides more AP updates, HCPSS is developing a frequently asked questions resource that will be shared on the Continuity of Learning page of the HCPSS website. We anticipate this content to go live later this week.
Our Marriotts Ridge team is excited to reconnect with students and families.
