BALTIMORE — The Archdiocese of Baltimore Department of Catholic Schools is planning a task force update as they work to reopen schools in August.

According to the Archdiocese, the Planning Ahead Task Force for Catholic Schools has been working to develop a comprehensive plan to ensure the safe return of faculty and staff on August 24th and students on August 31st for instruction five days per week.

Officials say the Task Force is receiving technical assistance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to inform their plans to safely return to in-person instruction for the start of the 2020-2021 school year.

Although most school facilities will be able to accommodate all students for five day, in-person instruction while safely social distancing; some schools, due to their size, will incorporate a “blend” of inperson and remote learning that maximizes in-person instruction. Families who do not feel comfortable returning their child(ren) to in-person instruction will be able to have their child(ren) participate remotely from home. Detailed reopening procedures will be finalized and shared by July 24th.
