Confirmed COVID cases and increase in local metrics force move

John Carroll School, in an email to its school community on Wednesday afternoon, announced that it will transition to a 100% distance learning platform through Thanksgiving and it suspended all athletics and in-person extracurricular activities, effective immediately.

The message cited confirmed cases of COVID-19 at the school and the rapid increase in local metrics, many of which were outlined by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan in a news conference on Tuesday afternoon.
