In solidarity with Magruder High School students and faculty as well as the student shot on-site Friday, MCPS members and students are requesting that all schools in the community unite by wearing Magruder’s colors – navy blue, white and grey – on Tuesday when school is back in session. Monday is a professional day for teachers so schools are closed.
