We hope that you had an enjoyable and relaxing break. As we have moved through the last several months, we’ve faced different circumstances that have led to us opening schools, expanding face to face services, or closing schools. In all instances, these decisions have been made in collaboration with the Superintendent, the Leadership Team, the Board of Education, and the Cecil County Health Department.
During the past two weeks, we have continued these discussions and will subsequently begin transitioning staff and students back to buildings. While the County’s health metrics have declined, they remain high. However, we are confident that we can serve a small number of students safely by maintaining our safety protocols.
Schools have identified five percent of students who will return to schools on January 11 and will receive face-to-face instruction on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Similar to our first phase of students returning in September, these families will be contacted directly by the school.
As has been the case since last March, all plans are conditional and may change based on Cecil County’s health metrics. We will continue to provide regular updates as new information becomes available. It is our fervent hope that the county’s metrics will continue to improve and that we will be able to expand face-to-face learning.
