The state has cleared the way for Frederick County Public Schools to begin offering online instruction to students when schools are closed because of winter weather. Now the district can put a plan in place.

Many things that were done of necessity during the pandemic — such as working from home or meeting over the internet rather than in person — have proven to be useful tools even as the pandemic has waned. Virtual learning is certainly one of those tools.
