End-of-year message for CCPS parents from Superintendent Navarro

The following is an end-of-year message for CCPS parents from Superintendent Navarro. 

June 8, 2023

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Today is the last day of school for the 2022-2023 school year. Thank you for supporting your child and Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) during another successful year of learning. As you prepare for summer break, please keep in mind CCPS is here for our students and families all summer. Below is information you may find helpful about summer learning, meal sites and technology access.

Starting June 20, CCPS will offer a free lunch program for all children and youth ages 2 to 18 who live in Charles County. Meals are not limited to CCPS students, and no identification is necessary to obtain a meal. The program, “Lunch On Us,” will be provided this year at nine school sites. Hot meals will be provided but children must consume them onsite. Learn more at

If you are looking for fun things for your children to do over the summer, consider signing them up for one of our camps. CCPS is hosting several camps for students that still have open enrollment. Camps with openings include summer enrichment, the Sheriff’s Office Badges for Baseball, Advanced Placement (AP) boot camps, and Nanjemoy Creek Environmental Education Center camps. Click here to register.

CCPS has also partnered with FEV Tutoring to offer summer virtual learning programs for students. These programs include an SAT prep course for high school students, a virtual summer boost program for students in Grades 4-9 (in the 2023-23 school year) with a focus on math and language arts, and an online tutoring program for students in Grades 4-12 that will focus on math, language arts, science and social studies. Learn more at CCPS FEV Tutoring.

CCPS is hosting a parent meeting about FEV tutoring on Tuesday, June 13, at 5 p.m. on Zoom. Parents interested in learning more about FEV opportunities should plan to attend the meeting. Click here for the meeting link.

If your child needs an electronic device for summer use, please contact a staff member at their school. If you would like to secure a device for your child to use regularly at home, I urge you to look into the Charles County Connected Device Program. The program provides one new, internet-enabled device to families who are most at need. Qualifying households have an opportunity to receive one free Chromebook computer per address. For more information, please call 301-934-9305 or visit the Charles County Government website here.

By using any device that can connect to the internet, students can continue to access learning tools from home through their Microsoft Office 365 account. Most programs are stored in an application called Clever, which students know and use regularly throughout the school year. The steps below outline the login process for Office.

  • Visit
  • Log in using the student’s six-digit student ID number email and CCPS-issued technology password.
  • Student passwords are stored in ParentVue, under the Student Info menu.
  • Click on the Apps tool and look for the blue Clever symbol under Education Apps.
  • Click on Clever. Students may have to use the Student Login option.

Additionally, if your child was identified to complete a summer school course and you need to register, please do so before the June 20 deadline using ParentVue. All summer school courses, including those we are providing for original credit, are free this summer and transportation is available. CCPS has a dedicated Summer School program page on its website at

In August, CCPS will begin its back-to-school communications with families. The first day of school for students for the 2023-2024 school year is Monday, Aug. 28. Please continue to monitor our website over the summer months for the most up-to-date information. Please enjoy the summer break. Learning happens when our students play, travel and engage in a wide variety of experiences. We hope to round out learning options for your child through our summer options and we encourage you to also visit the Charles County Public Libraries and Charles County Parks and Recreation to learn more about their activities for children this summer.

We look forward to seeing students over the summer and at the start of a new school year.
