Plans for Inclement weather make-up days

  • Schools now will be in session on April 4, 5, and 6 and for a half-day on May 18 to make up for the four inclement weather days used.
  • If schools are closed for one additional inclement weather day, June 15 will be used.
  • State law mandates that the school year must be completed by June 15. If additional inclement weather closings become necessary, HCPSS will petition the Maryland State Department of Education for a waiver of the additional days.


Updated A day/B day schedule

Due to the fact that we have missed 4 B days and had an additional shortened B day for unscheduled early dismissal as of February 7, adjustments have been made to the A day/B day calendar for the remainder of this school year. 

  • Tuesday, February 20 will be changed from an A day to a B day.
  • Wednesday, April 4 will be a B day.
  • Thursday, April 5 will be an A day.
  • Friday, April 6 will be a B day.
  • Friday, May 18 will be a B day.
  • If Friday, June 15 is used as an inclement weather make-up day, it will be a B day.
