Parents or guardians of Harford County Public Schools’ students should be expecting phone calls from their child’s teacher on Monday, March 30.
“Our goal for this week, as teachers and other instructional staff return to work, is to re-establish contact with students and identify the best ways to be in touch during the closure,” according to a notice on the school system’s website.
“Teachers are working from home, so you may get a call from a blocked or private number. We will encourage teachers to leave a message indicating a time they will call back if you do not pick up. Please be on the lookout for these calls.”
Last week, Karen Salmon, the state’s superintendent of schools, announced closures related to the novel coronavirus would be extended until at least April 24.
Harford County began distributing new instructional materials last week, posting them on the school system’s website. The documents can be accessed by opening the COVID-19 page on hcps.org and clicking on the out-of-school curriculum materials tab. Parents will then need to enter their child’s student ID number so the school system can confirm who has accessed the online resources.
Two new meals sites are also being added today: Norrisville Elementary School in White Hall will start distributing meal kits from 11 to 11:45 a.m. and North Bend Elementary School in Jarrettsville will do so from noon to 1 p.m.
