Is it possible to make Announcements copied from a previous course invisible to students in a current course without deleting them?
Hi Karin Bolender Hart and welcome to the Community! There is a way that this can be accomplished. Once the announcements are copied over and before your class has been published, you can change the posting date of the announcement to some time in the future. This would prevent students from receiving the announcements before the posting day/time is reached (see How do I delay posting an announcement until a specific date in a course? for details). Another option you could consider is that, provided that you have a "sandbox" or similar course, you can copy the announcements into this course and then copy/paste them into your actual class when you would like them posted.
I hope this helps and best wishes!
