ELLICOTT CITY, Md. — Howard County Public Schools has extended the deadline for parents to choose whether or not to send their kids back to school for in-person learning.

The new deadline is February 10 at 5 pm.

All you have to do is fill out and submit this two-question form.

Before making a decision be sure to inform yourself on all the information you need including what a return to in-person learning will look like and measures the school system is taking to keep your child safe.

If not completed by the new deadline, the student by default will remain virtual for the remainder of the school year.
