Why are we putting our high school students, teachers, administrators, and staff at risk in such a dangerous moment? As a former Carroll County teacher and coach I am deeply opposed to the decision made by the board. Many attending the board meeting, including Dr. Dorsey, Commissioner Frazier, Health Department official Ed Singer, Superintendent Dr. Lockard and Karl Streaker, director of Student Services, expressed deep concern and opposed the reopening. Singer, representing the Carroll County Health Department was adamantly opposed to reopening. He made several data-driven, measurable points indicating the dangers of opening our high schools. Several counties in central Maryland are stepping back from their hybrid model to all-virtual as others are staying virtual for the near future.
