Last Day of School

As of Friday, August 22, 2014 3:52 AM --

State Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Lillian Lowery, has approved the four-day waiver request* submitted by Harford County Public Schools. The Board of Education met Monday, April 14, 2014 and heard the following changes to the calendar. The last day of school for students (K-11) is Thursday, June 12, and for Pre-K students the last day is June 10. High school students and North Harford Middle School will follow a three-hour delayed opening schedule on Tuesday, June 10th; Wednesday, June 11th, and Thursday, June 12th. Again, the delayed openings on those days are for high school students and North Harford Middle to accommodate final exam schedules. As an employee, should you have questions regarding your work schedule, please contact your immediate supervisor. Below is the sequentially ordered list of make-up days used. Dates with a line through them are dates identified as inclement weather make-up days that have been used and are now dates when schools are in session.
 

  1. Tuesday, June 10
  2. Wednesday, June 11
  3. Thursday, June 12
  4. Friday, June 13 (recovered as a result of waiver approval)
  5. Monday, April 14
  6. Tuesday, April 15
  7. Wednesday, April 16
  8. Thursday, April 17 (originally scheduled as a closure as part of spring break)


*State Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lillian Lowery approved the request made by Harford County Public Schools (HCPS) for a four-day waiver of the 180-day school year requirement for students.  HCPS has been closed a total of 11 days this school year for inclement weather.  Due to the effort put forth by HCPS to add a make-up day on April 17 (previously a spring break day), in addition to the seven days proactively built into the calendar as inclement weather makeup days, the waiver was granted.  As such, one day will be removed from the end of the school year.  Unless additional modifications to the school calendar become necessary, the last day for students will be Thursday, June 12.
Waivers for days used must be granted by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) and are not automatic regardless of ‘State of Emergency’ status as declared by the Governor during an inclement weather event. Please note that waivers will not be considered by MSDE until the end of snow/inclement weather season.
