Gov. Kay Ivey and State Superintendent Eric Mackey have announced that all schools in the state will be closed for the remainder of the school year. Students will receive instruction at home starting April 6. Mackey will be meeting with local superintendents to discuss what form this instruction will take. We will update with new information on that once it is available.

Athletics have ended for the school year. The State Department of Education will work to ensure that all seniors will graduate as close to on time as possible. Mackey said he holds out hope that graduations and proms could still occur. 

12:14 p.m.

We will be mailing report cards on Monday, March 30. Parents, if your address has changed, please call your school with your new address. If there is no answer at the school, please leave a voicemail.

The days and times for pickup of meals for Montgomery Public Schools will be changing starting Monday, March 30. Pickup will be available on Monday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Meals received will cover breakfast and lunch until the next pickup day, excluding Saturday and Sunday. We feel this will limit the burden of travel for families involved and reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

The Child Nutrition Program has designated 16 schools located throughout Montgomery County as locations  for pickup of meals.
 The meals will be available for anyone 18 and under regardless of what school they attend. No paperwork is required. Children must be present for the meals to be provided.

The meals will be solely for pickup and will not be consumed on-site. We encourage parents to be proactive in reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19 by not congregating at school sites and practicing social distancing once meals have been distributed. 

The schools where meals will be available are listed below.

The following is a memo sent by Superintendent Ann Roy Moore regarding 11- and 12-month employees working remotely.

Hello all,

As we continue to work through the coronavirus, we want to be considerate of our employees’ health and safety.  Any 11- and 12-month employee may WORK remotely from home with the following stipulations: -- BEFORE working remotely, principals must coordinate with their 12-month custodian to ensure that the building is “open ready” for when staff and students return to school.

-- If issues arise then 12-month custodians and 11- and 12-month logistics and maintenance employees will have to respond as necessary.

-- Principals and 12-month custodians of the 16 feeding sites must be available during the time the food pick-up is scheduled if needed. If not available, he/she must take leave.

-- Principals who have 12-month counselors should check in with them to ensure we are ready when school resumes. Counselors can check transcripts remotely to ensure grades are in and ready for report cards to be printed on our return.

-- Central Office administrators should check in with 11- and 12-month employees to ensure tasks that can be done remotely are being prepared and ready for when school resumes.

-- All 11- and 12-month employees who are “working” remotely, must check their emails daily and respond accordingly. You are officially working remotely and considered on duty and should be available when/if needed.  Otherwise you must take leave.

 All 11- and 12-month employees who decide to go to their assigned work locations for any period of time during this state of emergency, should first contact their supervisor to prevent large numbers of individuals in buildings at one time and to ensure social distances can be maintained appropriately. Employees who choose to work in their school/office are not permitted to bring their children to work locations. This measure is to protect all of our employees. 

Please stay safe and we will provide updates as necessary. 

Thank you, 

Superintendent Ann Roy Moore
