State Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick has approved a waiver that will end the Howard County public school year on a Friday instead of a Monday, county Superintendent Sydney L. Cousin announced this week.
Inclement weather days used Feb. 13 and 22 were tacked onto the end of the school calendar year, moving the last day of school to June 16. Now, with the waiver approved, it is June 13. The originally scheduled ending date was June 12.
The last four days of school will go as follows:
June 10 will be a full day for all students, and high school exams will begin.
On June 11-12, all schools will close three hours early; there will be no pre-K/RECC, and high school exams continue.
All schools will close three hours early June 13; there will be no pre-K/RECC, and high school exams end.
All school-based staff will be required to report to work June 16 for the last day of the school year.
