The collective groans of "aw-man!" keep rolling through the state of Maryland as Anne Arundel's board of education has decided that there will not be any days off for inclement weather. So-long School Days! Welcome back to virtual learning days when travel is too perilous to head out to school.
Earlier this year both the Montgomery County and Worcester School Boards of Education voted to do away with snow days and move classes to virtual learning. You can thank the Covid19 pandemic for proving this model of teaching works. How well it works is up for debate, but at least students and teachers can keep up with the curriculum without falling behind.
School systems planned for 3 or 4 snow days which may be used without students and teachers falling behind. Extra snow days were used beyond what was planned for in Anne Arundel, and that pushed the final school day to June 24. So it looks like the glee of listening for school closings on the radio is going into the dust-bins of history.
