On Thursday, March 26, 2020 between 8-11 a.m, Montgomery Blair High School staff and volunteers distributed chromebook laptops to those Blair students who do not have access to a computer or laptop at home. Families and students were able to do a curb-side pick-up of their chromebook via the school’s University Boulevard parking lot.
Blair High School Principal Renay Johnson tweeted that Blair High School distributed “almost 400 chromebooks” which is fantastic!
Besides Blair staff and the PTSA helping-out, with assist from Eastern Middle School Principal Matt Johnson, the non-profit organization, Small Things Matter distributed restaurant lunches to those Blair families who were picking-up laptops for their children/students.
The chromebook distribution is part of Montgomery County Public School’s (MCPS) Phase One transition to remote learning for all MCPS students due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has led to the closing of MCPS schools through April 24, 2020.
