STATUS OF SCHOOLS
State Superintendent Karen Salmon announced on March 25, 2020 that the shutdown for all public schools in Maryland would be extended through April 24, 2020. When we receive updates regarding any further details regarding this decision, we will communicate it to AACPS families, students and employees as quickly as possible.
NOTE: Spring Break is April 9-13, 2020. During this time there will be no food distribution at meal sites, and teachers will not be holding eLearning classes online. Food distribution, eLearning lessons, and limited staffing of AACPS facilities will resume on Tuesday, April 14.
During this time away, our hope is for you to remain safe and healthy. We have developed some instructional offerings for students who are able to use them during these next two weeks. AACPS eLearning educational resources
