HCPS Recommended Learning Experiences

On March 26, 2020, in conjunction with Governor Hogan’s press conference, State Superintendent of schools, Dr. Karen Salmon, extended the closure of all Maryland public schools through April 24, 2020. In preparation for the extended closure, HCPS developed Recommended Learning Experiences for families to use with their children over the next two weeks. Those resources are now available on the HCPS website, for families to access electronically.

For families who could not access the packets online, they could obtain printed copies of the Recommended Learning Experiences by visiting one of the meal sites throughout the county.  (

Beginning this week, teachers and staff are re-establishing contact with all students, and providing support and guidance to help with the Learning Experiences materials. For updated information, please visit
