Due to the threat of inclement weather, Baltimore County Public Schools announced that schools will close two hours early Friday, Jan. 25.
 
BCPS spokesman Charles Herndon said the decision was made in order to avoid potentially dangerous driving conditions for their over 900 buses and treacherous walking conditions for students who do not take the bus.

“Student safety has always been a priority,” Herndon said.
 
All afternoon and evening activities for BCPS are cancelled.
