While public schools in Montgomery County, Maryland, prepare to reopen in phases starting March 1, teachers are getting briefings on what to expect. But one county teacher said there’s one thing overshadowing all the plans. “I think we shouldn’t go back first of all until everyone is vaccinated,” said Angela Wolf, a longtime middle school teacher. “I think that’s the underlying issue” that’s giving many teachers pause, Wolf added. The Montgomery County Board of Education sent a letter to Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan on Thursday asking that more vaccines be given to Montgomery County in the weekly allotments from the state.
