Revisiting the heyday of department stores and five-and-dimes

Baltimore County shortens school year by 4 days

So little snow fell this year that Baltimore County public schools are shortening the school year by four days.

Instead of ending on June 14, the last school day in the county will be June 8. The school system builds in extra days each year for snow and bad weather and then reduces the number of days if they are not used.

This school year, the system only closed for two days at the beginning of the year when a hurricane knocked power out.
