Dorchester Co. Schools to remain virtual until Feb. 1st

DORCHESTER CO., Md. – Dorchester County Public Schools Superintendent W. David Bromwell says the district will remain all virtual until at least Monday, February 1st.

This is due to the current county positivity rate of 11.6% and case rate of 90.4 per 100,000.

In a statement, Bromwell says “Your frustration with this situation is shared by me as well as all of us at Dorchester County Public Schools. We want nothing more than to be able to start bringing students back into our buildings safely. Anticipating this day, the Executive Team and I have been working on a new plan to ensure as many of our students are able to receive some amount of in-person instruction as soon as it is safely possible.”

We’re told a new plan to ensure as many students as possible receive some sort of in-person instruction ASAP will be released on Friday.
