Baltimore County Public Schools is offering virtual learning through the end of the first semester on January 29, 2021. Details can be found in the school system’s Reopening Plan below.
Earlier this week, BCPS released a timeline for reopening school buildings for staff and students. From October 2 through 9, the school system will survey families of the students who may benefit most from in-person instruction – students with disabilities who attend separate public day schools and self-contained regional programs, as well as students in preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten. Additionally, staff are welcome to contact the Division of Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org to share their feedback.
Also announced on Sept. 17 were new childcare subsidies offered by county government and new childcare options offered by county government and other providers.
