OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Jemicy School on Monday announced students would start the next academic school year in person on August 17.

Based in Owings Mills, Jemicy is a private elementary and middle grade level school for students with dyslexia and related language learning differences.

According to the school, the early start will give students a chance to get to know their teachers and classmates in the case of a COVID-19 resurgence that would require a return to distance learning.

Jemicy says the level of students in each classroom is already at a lower than normal number making it easier to social distance. Rather than switch classrooms at the end of each period, students will eat lunch and stay in the same spot, while teachers rotate to them.

Students with immune disorders or parents who rather have their children stay at home, will still have the option to attend class virtually.
