Communication to Families, Return to 4-Day In Person Hybrid Learning Form

Dear Berkshire Elementary School Families,

We are excited to announce the opportunity for identified students to attend school for in-person learning 4 days per week.  Through consultation with health experts and while continuing to implement CDC recommended mitigation strategies to the greatest extent possible, this opportunity will be available to the following groups of students beginning on the identified dates:


  • Beginning May 10, 2021, the following student groups will have the choice between in-person learning 4 days per week with virtual learning on Wednesday, or 5 days of virtual learning: 

o   All elementary school students Preschool – Grade 5. 

o   All students in our Public Separate Day Schools. 

    • Students receiving special education services primarily outside of general education (cluster and regional programs including FALS, CALS, SEL, Hearing Impaired, Visually Impaired) in Grades 6 – 12.  
  • Beginning May 17, 2021, all other secondary students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) and/or a 504 Plan in Grades 6 – 12 will have a choice between in-person learning 4 days per week with virtual learning on Wednesday, or 5 days of virtual learning. 


Wednesdays will continue to be asynchronous days for all students. Wednesdays provide teachers the opportunity to meet with small group of students, provide tutoring, conduct individual student check-ins, plan for instruction, and engage in professional learning. 


BCPS has identified May 10 and May 17 as start dates for system planning purposes; however, we have learned that the nature of this pandemic is ever changing and evolving which could impact the scheduled timeline as more updated information is provided. 


Elementary - Families should indicate their choice using the link below by April 21, 2021


Our families must fill out a separate form for each student using the school-specific form. 


A member of our staff will contact you if we have any questions. Thank you and we look forward to your return!

About Us

Our mission is to provide a quality education through shared responsibility in a safe supportive environment for all students to meet the challenges of a global society.

We are “Committed to Excellence”, and we work hard to make the site a primary source for timely information for all users, and a main gateway for improved communication between parents, teachers, students and other members of our community.

 Embarking on a new school year causes each of us to reflect upon the past and recall the reasons why we have chosen to dedicate our lives to this profession. As in the past, we continue to reflect to seek ways to support the Baltimore County Public School system’s goals that include:

  • To improve achievement for all students;
  • To maintain a safe and orderly learning environment; and
  • To use resources effectively and efficiently.

We believe all students will learn and achieve. Improving student achievement is our priority and requires effective teachers, an effective principal and assistant principal, a standard curriculum, and shared accountability. With these energizing thoughts, the administration and staff look forward to working with you and ensuring that your child enjoys a positive and productive school year.
