Governor Hogan, State Superintendent Highlight School Reopenings With Visit to Easton Elementary School

ANNAPOLIS, MD (STL.News) Governor Larry Hogan today joined State Superintendent Karen B. Salmon, Ph.D. for a visit to Easton Elementary School in Talbot County.  With funding, guidance, and support from the Maryland State Department of Education and the Maryland Department of Health, schools across Maryland continue to reopen safely for in-person instruction.

“The State Superintendent and I have been strongly pushing school systems to get students safely back into the classroom by March, and we’re pleased that most systems will resume in-person instruction as of Monday,” said Governor Hogan.  “I’m looking forward to visiting more school systems across the state in the coming weeks to thank all the teachers, staff, and administrators who have been working so hard to get our kids back into the classrooms.”

Governor Hogan again emphasized the public health mitigation practices in place to protect teachers, staff and students, including clarification of the school masking policy.  The governor’s new executive order announced this week clarifies that masks are required for anyone over the age of 5 in any area of a school setting where interaction is likely, including all Maryland classrooms, cafeterias, hallways, auditoriums and gyms.
