Parents and students alike in Prince Georges County are concerned about a return to classroom learning.  Charles Herbert Flowers closed in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and distance learning became the norm.  It’s been a challenge for some, welcomed by others, but everyone wants a return to classes on site to be a safe experience. Prince Georges County Educators Association has been out front calling for a safe return.
