Winter Break Reminder: Meal Services

Howard County Public Schools will be closed for winter break from Thursday, December 24, 2020 through Friday, January 1, 2021. There will be no meal service during this time. To ensure children have access to essential nutrition during the holiday period, families may pick up additional meals in advance of the break. The following adjustments will be made to meal services: There is no meal service Thursday, 12/24 through Friday, 1/1. Meal service will resume on Monday, January 4, 2021.

Telemedicine During Virtual Learning

On January 4, the School Based Wellness Centers (SBWC) Telemedicine Program will be reopening. The program will focus on children who do not have health insurance and/or a medical provider. Since the children and students are in their homes, we will not have the use of the telemedicine carts and will be unable to examine ears or perform throat cultures. Parents and guardians may call our office or send an email and program staff will determine if the health complaint can be safely evaluated and if not, assist them in finding a medical provider to see the child in person. There will be no charge for any of the SBWC Telemedicine visits. However, children must be enrolled or willing to enroll in the SBWC Program.
