WESTOVER, Md. – Somerset County Public Schools officials have announced the extension of its initial closure of schools due to persisting rates of COVID-19 within the county.

The initial closure began on November 9th, with a target reopening date of November 30th. As of today, Somerset’s local COVID-19 health metrics are more than triple the state recommended benchmarks for safe in-person learning, making the initial reopening target of November 30th unattainable.

At this time, SCPS is scheduled to reopen for in-person learning on Monday, December 7th.

All students who had been receiving in-person instruction will con tinue with virtual learning until in-person learning can safely resume. During the closure, student meals will be available for curbside pickup at Deal Island Elementary, Greenwood Elementary, Princess Anne Elementary, Washington High School, Somerset Intermediate, Woodson Elementary, and Crisfield High School between 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. each school day, excluding holidays and closures.
