Last Day of School

On April 9, State Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lillian Lowery approved the request
made by Harford County Public Schools (HCPS) for a three-day waiver of the 180-day
school year requirement. HCPS has been closed a total of six days this school year,
three days for Hurricane Sandy and three days for inclement weather. The three-day
waiver request was made for the school closures caused by local power outages and
damages as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
Due to the effort put forth by HCPS to make-up three of those days in April by making
April 3 (previously a spring break day) and April 29 and 30 (previously teacher
professional development days) regular school days, the waiver was granted. As such,
three days will be removed from the end of the school year. Unless additional modifications
to the school calendar become necessary, the last day for students is Tuesday, June
11, and the last day for teachers and 10-month instructional support employees is
Friday, June 14.
