On Feb. 4, MCPS announced to the community that they are currently considering implementing virtual learning during days where schools are closed due to inclement weather for the remainder of the 2021-2022 school year.
When inclement weather is a likely possibility, the county will monitor the weather forecast, informing residents of a potential virtual learning day. MCPS will be informing the community through a number of sources such as: ConnectED, Alert MCPS, social media, the local news, MCPS-TV, and the county’s recorded phone line.
MCPS asks that students and staff remain prepared in the event of inclement weather, and bring home all needed materials beforehand.
On days where we will transition to virtual learning, learning time will begin two hours later than your normal bell schedule. Information regarding specific schools will be relayed to families through their respective principal. Students that face difficulties and therefore cannot attend their virtual learning day, will be excused and be given the opportunity to make up any missed work.
