The latest guidance for schools was released on January 8, 2021. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the Maryland Department of Health (MDH)  and Maryland State Department of Education's (MSDE) guidelines for addressing COVID-19 and spread prevention in schools. AACS follows all current orders and guidelines from the State of Maryland, the MDH, the Anne Arundel County Department of Health (AACDOH), and the MSDE.

The following Q&A is adapted from a comprehensive document written by members of the MSDE and MDH. All Maryland public and nonpublic schools must follow the guidance contained in this document regarding COVID-19 mitigation actions.
