The Howard County Public School System has canceled all school- and community-sponsored afternoon and evening activities Thursday because of forecasted inclement weather.
However, activities sponsored in schools by the Columbia Association and Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks are still being held.
Thursday was the first day back to school for students after winter break.
The high school athletic lineup for Thursday was light, with only allied bowling and a few non-county girls basketball and wrestling matches on the schedule. Those games will be made up on the next available play date.
