A Message to ACPS Families
A MESSAGE TO ACPS FAMILIES FROM INTERIM SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS:
Yesterday’s announcement, by Maryland State Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Karen Salmon, to extend the closure of all public schools in Maryland through April 24, 2020, was a necessary action in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The health, safety, and well-being of our employees, students, and families are more important than anything else.
The announcement gives us an extended date in which to execute our continuity of learning plan. Moving forward, it also leaves many questions unanswered and decisions that will need to be made as we navigate through these unfamiliar and difficult times. Most of the questions, as well as decisions, will be made with guidance from the Maryland State Department of Education. In the meantime, please take advantage of information provided on the ACPS crisis management website at https://www.acpsmd.org/Page/3146. This information will be updated regularly.
We will provide more information on decisions that impact you and your child(ren) as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and support. Please be vigilant in keeping you and your family safe by following the CDC guidelines.
Jeffrey S. Blank
Interim Superintendent of Schools
