Worcester County schools to go virtual on snow days | What it means for students

·1 min read

In Worcester County schools, future snow days won't prompt school cancellations.

Last week, the district said it has used all of its inclement weather days built into the school year.

Therefore, all future snow days will be treated as virtual learning days during the 2021-22 school year.

Students in preschool to eighth grade will be expected to complete online assignments via choice boards. High school students must complete assignments on Schoology.

Assignments, which will be posted by 10 a.m. on distance learning days, must be submitted within five days following the return to in-person learning.

Those with questions are urged to contact their children's schools.

Snowstorms are expected to hit the Eastern Shore on Thursday.

According to the National Weather Service, "Salisbury and areas north can expect rain before noon, then rain and snow between noon and 1 p.m., then snow after 1 p.m. Temperature will rise to near 40 degrees by 9 a.m., then fall to around 29 degrees during the remainder of the day."
