Maryland School for the Deaf Home
Given the rising COVID-19 metrics across the state, Maryland School for the Deaf will not open on January 19, 2021. We have postponed bringing the first small group of students back to campus until mid-February. This postponement applies to athletics as well. We will continue Distance Learning for all students. The targeted return date for the first small group of students is February 16, 2021 and February, 8, 2021 for staff to prepare classrooms. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and communicate any updates as needed.
