An Open Letter to the Dorchester County Public Schools Community

Good afternoon Dorchester County Public Schools Community,   

Due to the impending emergency Maryland State Board of Education meeting on Thursday, August 26, 2021, I will not be releasing an informational video regarding masking for Dorchester County Public Schools as I said I would at last week’s Dorchester County Board of Education meeting.  I will be waiting, just like you, to see which direction the Maryland State Department of Education takes on this subject.

I still strongly recommend the wearing of masks as a layer of safety when present at school facilities.

On Friday, August 27, 2021, I will provide the community with an update and our next steps upon conclusion of the Thursday emergency MSDE meeting.

Thank you for your patience and your continued insight on the masking subject.  Dorchester County Public Schools WILL open as scheduled next week for all of our students.

W. David Bromwell

Superintendent
