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.
