Students should be completing all classroom assignments with their district-provided devices, the letter said. More details from teachers in regards to lessons, Google Meets and attendance expectations will come later.
Montgomery County Health Commissioner Jeff Cooper said during a press conference Wednesday that when students and staff regularly follow mask rules, school buildings have not been a source of significant COVID-19 spread.
Cooper said the increase in the spread of coronavirus is largely because of actions happening outside of school environments, such as lack of masking, lack of maintaining social distancing and attending crowded, enclosed gatherings, like game-day watch parties and large wedding receptions.
“We encourage everyone to be extremely diligent about their actions so that we can keep our staff and students safe and learning in-person,” the school said.
