Good News... 

Posted by Beth and Richard Witt, Long Island Cash Home Buyer 516-330-6940 (Long Island Cash Home Buyer) 3 days ago

Montgomery County Public Schools on Wednesday announced that it will be distributing laptops to students so they can participate in online classes next week.

The announcement comes several hours after state Superintendent of Schools Karen Salmon extended the statewide closure of K-12 schools through April 24. Gov. Larry Hogan ordered the extension in an effort to slow the spread of the new coronavirus, which — as of Wednesday evening — has infected 423 people in Maryland.

While the outdoor areas surrounding #MoCoRec Centers remain open, all playgrounds are closed. Practice social distancing. Do not participate in team/contact sports or activities involving physical contact/sharing of equipment. Keep six feet between you and others. #MoCo #Covid19

This is important news for students at home, without computer resources to study on-line.

Good evening Roy Kelley - Chromebooks are a very good and reasonably priced choice.

This is such a great idea and the chromebook is the perfect resource. The schools in Seattle and Tacoma started  Handing these out on Monday of this week...

Happy Friday Roy Kelley
