Superintendent Mamie J. Perkins is reminding parents of all Anne Arundel County Public Schools students that the semester break for students – now scheduled for January 27 and 28, 2014 – could shift if there is inclement weather that forces schools to close the prior week.
The Board-approved calendar calls for four consecutive days of high school semester exams for high school students on the days preceding the break. Thus, if inclement weather forces a closing of schools on any of the testing days – January 21 through 24 – the semester break will be shifted forward accordingly.
High school exams will be administered according to the following schedule:
- Tuesday, January 21: A Day, periods 1 and 2
- Wednesday, January 22: B Day, periods 1 and 2
- Thursday, January 23: A Day, periods 3 and 4
- Friday, January 24: B Day, periods 3 and 4
Should inclement weather force a closing on one of the exam dates, the schedule will be shifted but exams will still be administered in the order listed above.
Should inclement weather force a two-hour delay on one of the exam dates, all schools will open two hours late and close at their normal time.
There will be no classes for half-day afternoon prekindergarten or ECI students from January 21-24. Morning half-day prekindergarten and ECI sessions will also be canceled if schools open two hours late on any day that week.
