Don't miss this PTA Meeting (2/11)! Please join us on Tuesday, February 11th at 7pm in the media center at Robert Frost for a PTA meeting that will host a Speak Up, Save A Life Program. This program was created by the Montgomery County State's Attorney's Office, Montgomery County Bar Association and the Police Department in response to the overdose epidemic. The goal of this program is to provide education and awareness about drugs, alcohol and vaping. There will be 2 speakers at this meeting-a local parent who lost a child to an overdose and a former assistant state's attorney. We will also discuss a contest for the students to help educate them on the dangers of drugs, alcohol and vaping. The Montgomery County Bar Association will donate money as prizes for the 10 best posters or videos that the students make. More information about the contest will be provided at the meeting. Please come out and help educate yourselves and your children.

RIGHT NOW IN THE FROST COMMUNITY


Did you buy your house so that your kids would go to Frost and Wootton? You are going to want to know what is going on……….


Did you miss the Wootton Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Testimony to the Board of Education on 11/8? Everyone is busy, but please read below and consider writing the BOE regarding Wootton cluster building issues, the email is boe@mcpsmd.org The message will go to all BOE members.


• Wootton was scheduled to be next high school for a renovation/expansion and was set to break ground in the summer of 2019. • Wootton was built in 1970 • It rests on the smallest footprint in the county yet has the fifth largest enrollment • The hallways and stairwells are unsafe due to overcrowding • students eat lunch sitting on the floors in hallways • there are not enough stalls in bathrooms • the ineffective HVAC system causes tremendous temperature swings throughout the building • the building does not meet ADA codes • the bus drop off/pick up is not safe as students • cars and buses all share the same narrow passage • a $300K mold remediation was done over the summer


MCPS did a feasibility study in 2016, which involved multiple meetings with the Wootton community, and the planning process was to kick off this past Spring. Just as the planning process was set to begin, the new MCPS Superintendent decided to change the formula for determining the order in which schools are renovated. Wootton now no longer has a project date, and timelines for improvements to both Cold Spring and Fallsmead have been impacted as well.


Here is a letter from the superintendent to the Board: CIPPolicyTransitionOct2017


Here is the Wootton Cluster pages from the CIP document: CIPPolicy-Wootton Cluster
