Baltimore County Public Schools announced on Saturday that online learning will stay closed on Monday, Nov. 30 and Tuesday, Dec. 1 as a result of last week’s ransomware attack. Here is the official statement that was sent out to parents.
“Good evening Baltimore County Public Schools families and staff,
Due to the recent ransomware attack, Baltimore County Public Schools will be closed for students on Monday, November 30, and Tuesday, December 1. BCPS offices will be open and staff will receive additional information about Monday and Tuesday.
This provides much-needed time for our staff to continue working to set up the instructional platform and to communicate next steps regarding devices.
On Monday, November 30, and Wednesday, December 2, student meals will be available for pickup at no cost, at more than 300 locations as usual, including all middle and high schools.
We understand how challenging this situation is for families and staff, and we thank you for your patience as we work through this crisis. Please note that future daily updates will be available at 5 p.m.”
