SUPERINTENDENT KELLY GRIFFITH RESPONDS TO GOVERNOR HOGAN’S ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT REOPENING SCHOOLS
In a press conference held on Thursday August 27, Governor Larry Hogan announced that every county school system in Maryland is now fully authorized to begin safely reopening as a result of improved COVID-19 health metrics across the state. The governor’s office also released Health Metrics to guide school reopening decisions for the first time.
“I am very proud of the collaborative efforts of the TCPS Recovery workgroups and the work of the stakeholder committee in the creation of our recovery plan, as it aligns with expectations and provides measures to be in place to ensure a safe work/learning environment for all.” said Dr. Kelly Griffith, Superintendent of Schools. “We will proceed with beginning the school year virtually, but as our plan outlines, we will bring small groups of students in special populations into school buildings starting the second week of school.”
“We appreciate the statewide consistent health metrics as we continue to work through transitions for TCPS with Dr. Fredia Wadley, Talbot County Health Officer. We are looking forward to our first day of school on 9/8/2020!”
