MCPS Releases Health Metrics Matrix for Phased-In Return to In-Person Instruction
MCPS released a graphic during yesterday’s Board of Education meeting, while discussing a phased-in return to in-person instruction.
MCPS has developed a health metrics grid for a phased-in return to in-person instruction. The grid is aligned with CDC guidelines and was developed in consultation with Montgomery County health officials.
MCPS staff will return to the Board of Education on November 6th and November 10th to discuss a reopening strategy aligned with the metrics.
“We remain committed to providing a high-quality education to all MCPS students in the virtual model. We will continue to thoughtfully plan and collaborate with the Board of Education, MCPS staff and the community on our reopening efforts, while keeping safety at the forefront of all we do.”
During the meeting it was stated that practices for athletic teams could begin as early as December 7th, based on the latest guidelines from the state. More information on athletics will also be provided and discussed at the November 6th and November 10th Board of Education meetings.
