We begin today with Tom's Newsmaker guest, Dr. Sonja Santelises. She is the CEO of the Baltimore City Public Schools. We make it a point to check in with her periodically for an update on what’s happening in our schools.

Tom talks with Dr. Santelises about how the school system is responding to the ongoing surge in omicron variant infections, protocols for COVID mitigation in the classrooms, and which schools are transitioning back to virtual learning. And we take your questions and comments.

Dr. Sonja Santelises joins us on Zoom from Baltimore City.
