Important Principal’s Message


<< Back to Lockerman MS News

Good evening Lockerman Middle School families,

Based on current conditions, Caroline County Public Schools is planning to bring 4th, 5th, 6th, and 9th grade students back to school buildings on a Monday/Tuesday or Thursday/Friday schedule. 

Monday/Tuesday Schedule students will begin on Monday, November 30. 

Thursday/Friday Schedule students will begin on Thursday, December 3. 

Schedule Details:


Students on the Monday/Tuesday Schedule (begins November 30):

  • Monday and Tuesday in the building for in-person instruction.
  • Wednesday at home for an asynchronous day (same as current schedule).
  • Thursday and Friday at home for synchronous virtual learning (same as current schedule).

Students on the Thursday/Friday Schedule (begins December 3):

  • Monday and Tuesday at home for synchronous virtual learning (same as current schedule).  
  • Wednesday at home for an asynchronous day (same as current schedule).
  • Thursday and Friday in the building for in-person instruction.

Students in these grades who have already been attending four days a week will continue to come on those days – Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  


Students who remain at home for virtual learning will not experience any change to their schedule.  

Please note: 

  • Families will not be able to choose a Monday/Tuesday or Thursday/Friday schedule. Students will be assigned to a schedule based on bus routes.
  • Families will be advised by the school of their student’s schedule (Monday/Tuesday Nov. 30, or Thursday/Friday Dec. 3) no later than November 23. 
  • Transportation will be provided. However, because of social distancing, transportation is a challenge. Please consider if you have an option other than using CCPS transportation.
  • Face coverings are required for all students ages 5 and over.
  • Protocols for preventing the spread of COVID-19 through cleaning, self-assessment, and social distancing are detailed in the CCPS Recovery Plan. 

CCPS needs to know how many students will be returning to the building and how many will require transportation. 


Please complete a questionnaire for each student in 4th, 5th, 6th, and/or 9th grades. It is extremely important that we obtain information around plans for your child’s return. It will also save us the trouble of calling you for this information.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.


Thank you.
