To My Hunter Mill District Neighbors:

It is hard to keep up with the fast changing coronavirus-related news at all levels of our government. Here is an update of links to information that will be helpful as we navigate this public health emergency together. If you have a question specific to Hunter Mill District, please send an email to [email protected], or call my office at 703-478-0283.

Earlier today I stopped by Dogwood Elementary School (pictured above) to say thank you to the cafeteria staff who are distributing free breakfasts and lunches to students. They are just one of 18 sites countywide where dedicated FCPS staff are working to make sure students do not go hungry. Thank you to all our county and school staff who are working tirelessly to help us all through these challenging times!
