Hogan to speak at 2:30 pm

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WDVM) — Governor Hogan is calling for all Maryland school systems to return to in-person or hybrid instruction no later than Monday, March 1 or sooner.

“The time has come to get all of our kids back into the classrooms, and reopen our schools.”

Hogan shares that Dr. Salmon announced another $780 million in federal relief for school systems in Maryland to address the effects of the pandemic and a total of more than $1.2 billion has been allocated.

Maryland has prioritized teachers and staff in the state for COVID-19 vaccine, and school systems have provided plans to vaccinate staff.

“We fully expect teachers to make every effort to return to the classroom.”

Hogan reassured that he will do everything he can do by law to get Maryland students back into the classroom.
