Is HCPSS allowing community groups to request the use of school facilities?

HCPSS is not allowing the reserved use of our school facilities by organized groups through December 31, 2020. The continual uncertainty surrounding when and how schools will reopen requires that HCPSS ensure facilities will be immediately available for student use. HCPSS will continue to reassess future options for community use of facilities.

Announced June 25, 2020, through the ongoing collaboration between the school system and the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks, HCPSS will gradually reopen school facilities for school system and Howard County-sponsored programs during the summer, while continuing to ensure compliance with CDC and Health Department guidance. The gradual reopening schedule provides for maximum flexibility to assure facilities will be available for instructional use once school resumes in Fall 2020.
