Dear Stemmers Run Middle School Families,
In order to ensure a successful start to the school year, we recognize that there are materials that students will need in order to engage in virtual instruction.  Due to the large amount of materials that will be distributed, we will not be able to accommodate distributing materials for multiple families to one person.  Please note, students with BCPS devices, should bring them in order to receive updates at the technology station.
Below are our distribution dates and times.  If you need to arrive outside of your assigned window, we can accommodate you, but please be aware that it may take longer to gather materials as we will be most prepared for specific groups at the assigned times.  

Tuesday, September 1st
Grade 6
4:00 – 5:30 Last Names - A – L
5:30 – 7:00 Last Names - M - Z

Wednesday, September 2nd
Grade 7

In order to protect yourself and our staff, please be sure to wear a face covering when you come to school.  If you drive to the school, remain in your vehicle unless you are directed to exit.  If you walk to school, please follow the designated signs to pick-up the materials.  While at school, please remain at least six feet away from other people.  Please limit the number of family members that you bring, if possible.  Finally, if you are ill or under isolation or quarantine because of your own illness or close contact with an individual with COVID-19, please do not come to school.  Please contact the school to make alternative arrangements.

 The drive-through distribution site will be located in the Stemmers Run Bus Loop.   Our pick-up/distribution will be divided into three stations: Check in, Materials Pick-Up, and Technology.  There will be staff and signage to help guide you through this process.  Students with a windows device, should bring it with them and connect to the BCPS network in order to receive critical updates, renew their Windows license, and update additional settings in preparation for virtual learning.  
General guidelines for each station are listed below:

 STATION #1 – Check-In
• Please have the first and last name(s) of your student(s) and grade clearly written on a piece of paper.  A staff person will check your name, radio for materials, and direct you to the next station. 

STATION #2 – Materials pick-up

• Families will retrieve student materials/resources. 
 • Remain in your car.
• If you are unable to open your trunk without getting out of your car, our staff will place your child’s materials on the back seat.
• Walking families will retrieve student materials in the designated location.

STATION #3 – Device Distribution and Secondary Device Sign-On
• The technology station will be hosted by the auditorium lobby because students will need to access wifi
• Please park next to the auditorium, and only have the student or one representative bring their device to the auditorium technology station.
• Please wear a mask and socially distance while waiting for assistance.  

Thank you for your patience and cooperation with this process.  Should you have any questions please contact me via email, or call Stemmers Run on school days at 443-809-0177 between 8:00am and 2:30pm.
