PARENTS REMINDED THAT INCLEMENT WEATHER COULD FORCE CHANGES TO SEMESTER BREAK

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.
