Welcome to CTC


Dear CTC families,

We are excited for the start of limited Face to Face instruction (F2F) with small groups at CTC starting on MondaySeptember 21 with the PM1 cohort only. Teachers have shared with their students which cohort they have been assigned (AM1, AM2, PM1 or PM2). The PM2 cohort will attend on Thursday, September 24. Many of our CTC programs will participate in F2F instruction. Level one and level two program classes have been split into two cohorts to adhere to established safety protocols; attending CTC on separate days every other week. Class time is from 12:45PM until 2:50PM.

Bus transportation will be available. Parents who submitted a F2F permission slip by the deadline (September 15) will have a neighborhood bus stop option for student pick up. Details for the individual neighborhood bus pick up (location/time) will be emailed to all PM1 students by Saturday afternoon (at their my.fcps.org email). All other student cohort members who plan to utilize a neighborhood bus pick up to attend CTC (AM1, AM2 & PM2) will receive their bus pick up email early during the week of September 21. All neighborhood buses will transport students to their respective home high schools where they will board a school shuttle bus to CTC. All FCPS buses will have a limit of no more than 22 students on a bus at one time.

Below are the departure times of the school shuttle buses for each school to CTC for those who choose to skip the neighborhood bus pick up:

Participating students may also walk or be dropped off at the front of our building beginning at 12:25PM. CTC students can also drive to CTC on their cohort day; parking will be provided. All drivers and parents dropping off students should make the 1st left onto our campus from Opossumtown Pike and follow the signs for drop off and parking areas.

Student participation in F2F instruction is strictly voluntary. While in the building, CTC students and staff will be required to wear a mask at all times. In addition, students will be provided with a pair of disposable gloves to wear during each F2F session.

If you have not submitted a F2F permission slip, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible:  Permission Form  The F2F permission slip will provide you an option to choose bus transportation. Students who have not completed a permission slip electronically will be provided a paper copy on their first day attending F2F instruction.

If you have any questions, please ask your program teacher or contact CTC at 240-236-8500.
