FCPS will continue in a virtual learning model through the first semester, which is scheduled to end on January 26, 2021. During their regular meeting, the Board of Education discussed options for a hybrid approach. Motions to move toward the hybrid model of the reopening plan failed to generate enough votes to pass.
Also at yesterday's meeting the Board voted to accept the recommendations from the Return-to-Play (RTP) Committee to continue with the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association’s (MPSSAA) Two-Semester Plan for Interscholastic Athletics, with the potential of approving earlier starting dates and longer seasons that reasonably align with the return of students to classrooms. The approved recommendations include continuing the voluntary first-semester conditioning and skill-based practices. The recommendations also included allowing winter sports to move inside and approving use of weight and conditioning rooms, provided the RTP Committee develops plans with guidelines for health and safety measures.
In addition, the Board voted to include co-curricular activities with transportation provided and extra-curricular activities inside at schools where these opportunities are available. Participants must adhere to all established safety protocols regarding masks and social distancing.
