Inclement Weather Day Plan for Students

The Maryland Department of Education is allowing districts to use three (3) asynchronous inclement weather days as virtual learning days. This limits the number of days that would normally have to be added on to the end of the school year.


Elementary: Folders with brief Math and/or English Language Arts assignments will be sent home in preparation for an inclement weather day. Internet/Wi-Fi will not be required to complete assignments. Assignments will be due 2 days after school is back in session and will count as attendance for the virtual day.


Secondary: Students will be able to access their assignments offline without the need for Internet/Wi-Fi access using their school-issued device. Assignments will be brief and a review of material already covered in the classroom. Work will be due shortly after school is back in session and will count as attendance for the virtual day.

RES students should have brought home WHITE Folders at the end of this week which has the Inclement Weather assignments. The folders can be kept at home to be completed when/if necessary in the future.

Dismissal Changes for Students

It is important that parents call before 3 PM to request changes for dismissal. This allows sufficient time the office staff to communicate changes to the teachers and students. Last minute calls are very stressful during dismissal. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Parent and Doctor Notes

When a student is absent from school, it is required that parents provide a note stating the reason for the absence. If the student has been to the doctor's or dentist's office, please provide the doctor's/dentist note. Without a parent's note or doctor's note, the student's absence is considered unlawful. Notes must be provided within 10 days of the absence.

Non Discrmination Statement

Caroline County Public Schools prohibits discrimination in its educational programs, and in employment, on the basis of actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, sexual orientation, genetic information, gender identity, or disability.
