Join us for the first PTO meeting of the new school year, and the first in-person meeting in over two years!
On Thursday, September 22nd we will have our September PTO meeting, and it will be in a hybrid format. Anyone who wishes to attend in person can come to the Community Room, located to the left of the main entrance, from 6:00 - 7:30pm.
A Zoom link will be sent out prior to the meeting to everyone on the PTO email list. This link will not be shared on social media, so please reach out if you want to be on the list but haven't signed up yet (email@example.com).
It has come to our attention that for the 2022-2023 school year, the Baltimore City Public School System has modified the current Bell Schedule for our students from a start time of 8:15 am to 9:00 am and dismissal time of 2:55 pm to 3:40 pm. Please know that as your MHES PTO, we took notice of the 45-minute difference, and we heard your feedback. The change in the Bell Schedule will severely impact before and aftercare services, the mental health of our children, drop-off/pick-up work schedules, affordability options for families, after school programming and also inadvertently create a 1-hr gap of drop-off time for our families that attend Medfield Height Elementary and our local secondary school - Roland Park Middle.
It is our mission to create a strong community that fosters an environment of collaboration with ALL stakeholders and this decision is unacceptable for our entire community, especially without the input of parents and guardians. We are asking that BCPSS work with schools and families to find a better solution.
We, as the Medfield Heights PTO, Inc., representing the parents, guardians, and students would like to propose a Bell Schedule of 8:00 am or earlier be considered for Medfield Heights Elementary School. Please stand with us by doing the following:
