UPDATE ALL STUDENTS TO RETURN TO 100% VIRTUAL LEARNING FOR THE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 9TH: The Allegany County Public School System has worked diligently with the collaboration of the Allegany County Health Department to maintain in-person education in ACPS. However, with the shortage of staff available to provide in-person instruction, and the rising COVID-19 metrics in Allegany County, ACPS finds it necessary to return all students to a 100% virtual model at this time.

Students should log into their Schoology accounts and follow their virtual schedule for Monday, November 9, 2020. All Allegany County Public School buildings will be CLOSED to students and the public during this time. Employees will receive additional direction from the Human Resources department by email. ACPS will continue to review employee data, as well as county metrics, and will make a decision on Thursday, November 12, 2020, as to whether in-person education can resume on Monday, November 16th.

As of today, November 7th, ACPS reports an additional four individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 within an Allegany County Public School. During the week of November 2nd, ACPS had 101 staff members who were unable to report to work due to a COVID-19 related issue. As of today, ACPS has 110 staff members in this situation. These staff members include individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 and individuals who are quarantined due to close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19. Many of these individuals are quarantining for a period of 14 days.

The health and safety of staff and students is the school systemโ€™s number one priority. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during these difficult and ever-changing times. Stay safe!


Congratulations girls! Thank you Madison Paige Boutique for the sequin masks!

Pictured are the members of this year's Mountain Ridge High School Homecoming Court: (from bottom to top) Sophia Edwards, Queen; Ella Hoffman, Senior Duchess; Reillee Beeman, Senior Princess; and Ashley Michaels, Senior Princess.


As a result of increased health metrics related to COVID-19 in Allegany County, ACPS is cancelling all in-person extra-curricular activities and athletics events and practices effective today, Thursday, November 5, 2020, beginning with afternoon activities. This decision was made in collaboration with the Allegany County Health Department and school system staff after reviewing recent health data. Coaches and advisors will be in contact with students if they opt to conduct their activities in a virtual format. Community health metrics will continue to be monitored to determine when ACPS can resume in-person extra curricular activities and athletic practices and events.


All Allegany County Public Schools and Offices will be CLOSED tomorrow, Tuesday, November 3, for Election Day. There will be no virtual or hybrid learning and teachers will not have scheduled office hours. Thank you.
