After it was announced that Archdiocese of Baltimore students would take a small break from in-person school after Thanksgiving, Baltimore City schools have announced they will do the same.
In a letter sent to school families, it was announced that the Thanksgiving holiday poses “transmission risks for students, families, and staff.”
“Because of that risk, City Schools will briefly pause all in-person student learning programs and meal sites the week after Thanksgiving – Monday, Nov. 30 through Friday, Dec. 4,” reads the letter. “During that time, all students will participate in virtual learning.”
Despite schools being closed, the district office will remain open. The letter also states that the Multilingual Enrollment Choice and Support Center and Enrollment, Choice, and Transfer offices will only be supporting families virtually.
All in-person learning and meal sites will reopen on Monday, Dec. 7 for more than 40 sites across Baltimore City.
