Blackboard Ends! Intrado Begins!

On September 30th, PGCPS will be transitioning to Intrado School Messenger as our robocall and district notification system. The BB District by Blackboard App will no longer be available, however, a new School Messenger app will replace it allowing you to:

  • Receive notifications from your child(ren)’s school
  • Communicate with the teachers
  • View attendance and grades
  • And more

How can you prepare? 

Make sure your information is updated in SchoolMAX. Login to the SchoolMAX Family Portal to ensure that your phone number and address are correct. If they are not correct, contact your child(ren)’s school.

If you don’t have a Family Portal Account, sign up for one today so you will be ready when the School Messenger App comes. For directions on how to set up an account, visit our SchoolMAX Family Portal Support Page.






Distance Learning 

The Prince George's County School's Reopening Plan is designed to provide a safe learning and working environment for prekindergarten through Grade 12 students and staff members amid the regional spread of COVID-19.

All students will receive daily distance learning opportunities in “real time” with their teachers. They will have access to instructional materials for use at home during distance learning, including materials for Early Learning, Creative and Performing Arts, Career and Technical Education, Special Education and Montessori. Each student will receive instructional materials based on grade level and course of study.
