Covid-19 is a deadly disease that ended the senior year of the class of 2020. Schools all around the globe have been closed down.
The opening of schools was initially set for April 27, but was pushed back to May 15 and eventually closed for the remaining school year due to an increasing number of cases.
Superintendent Karen Salmon stated that there will be upcoming plans for recovery from this pandemic. “After extensive consultation with the State Board of Education and leading public health experts in the state, I am extending the closure of schools through May 15.”
They have since then decided to close schools for the remainder of the academic school year due to the rising number of cases throughout Maryland.
“I am convinced this is the appropriate decision in order to continue to protect the health and safety of our students, educators, staff, and all members of school communities throughout Maryland,” Salmon said.
