Schools to Remain Closed for the 19-20 School Year
Maryland State Superintendent Dr. Karen Salmon has announced that all Maryland public schools will be closed through the end of the 2019-2020 school year with continuity of learning continuing for the remainder of the approved school calendar. With the waiver of five school days, as well as the addition of Memorial Day as a school day, the last day of school for students will be June 12, 2020.
This announcement was made during Governor Hogan’s press conference, in which he gave an update on his Maryland Strong: Roadmap to Recovery plan. While the Governor did authorize resumption of elective medical procedures and safe outdoor activities this week, he stressed the importance of continuing to maintain social distancing, adhering to the Stay at Home Order, limiting gatherings to 10 people or less, and wearing masks. He also indicated that our state’s COVID-19 data does not yet indicate that we are ready to move into phase one of the recovery plan. Read MoreMD Strong Recovery Plan
