Child Abuse Awareness

The month of April serves as National Child Abuse Awarness Month. Here at MPS, we are dedicated to serving all of our students and we want everyone to feel safe. We understand these times are slightly more stressful due to COVID-19. We're  encouraging our families to exercise, eat healthy and take time for self-care. And remember, if you or someone you may know is experiencing an uncomfortable situation, please seek help immediately. 


-To report an abuse case in Montgomery County, please dial 9-1-1.
