Baltimore County schools will close for the summer at the end of the day June 6, a week earlier than planned, because the district didn't use all of its scheduled snow days. The school board approved the change last night.
After last year's snowy winter forced the district to schedule extra days -- ruining family plans for Presidents Day and Memorial Day holidays -- the board built eight snow days into this year's calendar, allowing for a reduction of up to five days if snow didn't fall.
Only one day was needed, Jan. 9, though schools opened late Feb. 14. The Hereford zone opened late Jan. 16.
High school students will be released early June 3-6; elementary and middle schools will close early June 5-6. Teachers at all levels will work full days.
