Message from the Admin Team


Dear BMP Families,

Wow!  We don't know what to say... after all that we have experienced together, and apart, this school year, it is hard to believe that this week is the last week of school.  We miss your children.  We miss our community being together.  And, we look forward to seeing you when it is safe and the right time for us to be together again. 

Even as we prepare for start of summer holiday, we want to remind you that our staff is here to support students. Please see details below for virtual office hours being offered by our Bren Mar Park staff as well technology support for school laptops throughout the summer.

For the latest information on what fall may look like for FCPS schools, please monitor the unprecedented work of the FCPS School Board during their meetings.  And, I have no doubt updated communication will be shared as decisions are made.

Thank you for your continued partnership and support of our staff as we have quickly learned and implemented new ways of teaching during these past months of distance learning.

Your Partners in Education,

Elizabeth Williams and Erin Lear

The Bren Mar Park Admin Team
