CARROLL COUNTY, Md. — Carroll County Public Schools welcome students back on Thursday even though quite a few people disagree with the decision. Some going as far as starting a petition to get students back to virtual learning.

That petition appears to have been created not long after Wednesday's school board meeting. As mentioned above, it's calling for all students to go back to virtual learning in light of an increase in COVID-19 cases in Carroll County.

Elementary and middle school students started hybrid learning back in mid-October and today high school students will do the same. Groups will alternate between going into school a couple days a week and learning virtually on the other days.

CCPS Superintendent Steve Lockard sent a message out to parents last week saying that even though they were allowing high school students back in school for hybrid learning, they would continue to watch the health metrics to see if adjustments need to be made.
