PGCPS Vaccination Clinics Update for Central Office and School-Based Staff

Dear Colleagues,

From the beginning of the pandemic, your safety and the safety of our students has been my top priority as we navigate these unprecedented times. With the arrival of a COVID-19 vaccine, I am encouraging all of you to get vaccinated as a shield for your own health, your family’s well-being, and the safety of the children and families who we serve. I am pleased to share that the vaccine is now available in PGCPS, and I am writing now with details about how to sign up for one and where to receive it.  

The school system is working in collaboration with the Prince George’s County Health Department and Kaiser Permanente on employee vaccinations. Starting Saturday, January 30, central office and school-based employees may receive vaccinations by appointment only on Saturday and Sunday at the Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex in Landover. Please note the following important information:

Clinic location:

Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex
8001 Sheriff Road
Landover, MD 20785

  • Registration links for the upcoming weekend will be sent to you on Wednesdays. DO NOT share your registration link with anyone. 
  • Use your PGCPS email address to register for an appointment.
  • Employees must bring their PGCPS work identification card or another form of employment verification (i.e., printed pay stub, supervisor’s memo) to the appointment.
  • Appointments — Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Central office and school-based staff will receive paid leave for the Monday after their appointment with proof of vaccination. 
  • Educators should make arrangements for asynchronous (recorded) lessons or independent work for the Monday after their vaccination appointment and notify students and families in advance. 

The vaccination process is designed to serve you in an orderly manner. Although we originally anticipated three sites throughout the county, the new location provides better staffing support, vaccine storage as well as ample parking. With several thousand employees in need of vaccines, we expect to run vaccination clinics for approximately six to eight weeks. I ask for your patience and understanding over the next several weeks while we work to accommodate the demand.

As we enter this next phase, I know that you have many questions. I will host a virtual town hall meeting for employees on Thursday, January 28 at 6 p.m. to discuss the vaccination plans. Employees will automatically receive a phone call from the school system to join the town hall. If you do not receive a call, please contact 855-756-7520; 71409#. In addition, you can find a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) available online at https://www.pgcps.org/vaccine. Please utilize trusted information sources and visit the PGCPS website for the latest information.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the PGCPS community has shown that we are in this together. I appreciate your continued hard work, dedication and support. 

Sincerely,

Monica
