Wicomico schools begin online learning, packet pick-up

WICOMICO COUNTY, Md. – Students across Maryland getting back to schoolwork online Monday. In Wicomico County, schools were also handing out materials to families who don’t have access to online classes. At North Salisbury Elementary School parents lined up to pick up packets filled with the same work that can be found online. The school’s principal tells 47ABC that the pick ups are happening tomorrow as well.

Principal Dave Harris says Wicomico schools are making sure that every student has access to equal education. “It’s our responsibility as educators to educate every child and that includes our children at this period of time that have technology to us and those children who don’t have the technology, and it’s our responsibility to give out as many of those learning opportunities as possible,” said Harris.

Harris says school offices are also working to help families who aren’t able to get out today and tomorrow. The packets being handed out today have two weeks worth of material, and the school will be handing out new packets after those two weeks are up.
