Dr. Haas commends his colleagues on a great beginning to the 2021-22 school year.
First Days of School
I commend all of you for the opening of the 2021-22 school year! Every year, the opening of our schools takes all we have, and yet, when you dug deeper into your resolve, skill sets, and positive attitudes, you accomplished opening school in person for our students and families during the most difficult time we have faced. You all have been amazing.
I have greatly enjoyed visiting just about every school site across the county. This morning, after I visit Greer, Woodbrook, Agnor-Hurt, and Community Lab School, I will have visited all of our schools, and I am so impressed with your work. I can’t thank you enough!
It may go without saying that our school custodians are critical to helping us prepare and maintain our schools annually and have been heroes for ACPS this year, but we must say so! Here is a recent NBC29 news story on this topic: ACPS now paying custodians $15 an hour
