Superintendent George Arlotto today reminded parents of all Anne Arundel County Public Schools students that the semester break for students – now scheduled for January 31, 2018 – could shift if there is inclement weather that forces schools to close on any of the last two days of the second marking period.

All quarterly assessments must be given by the end of the marking period and before the semester break. Thus, if inclement weather forces a closing of schools on either January 29 or 30 – the last “A” day and “B” day of the high school schedule – the semester break will be shifted forward accordingly.

Should inclement weather force a two-hour delay on either January 29 or January 30,all schools will open two hours late and close at their normal time to accommodate assessments.
