Do we have to make up all these snow days?

Have you kept count of the snow days?  It's been hard but including today, Charles County Public Schools has used a total of seven snow days this school year. 

So where does that leave us as far as making all these up?

We had four automatically built into the school calendar.

Yay, down to three.

We were supposed to have this coming Monday, February 17th off for President's Day.  That has been recalled.  All students and teachers are to report to school now.

Yay, down to the last two.

The Governor issued a State of Emergency but that does NOT automatically excuse those days for the school system.  We must first apply for a waiver, which is yet to be determined.

Please see the below to an article which explains the process statewide and what is happening in other districts in Maryland in a little more detail.


According to the calendar the Board decided to first use President's Day and then start taking away from Spring Break, unless we are waived and excused for the last two days.  I will keep you posted. 

Stay warm and stay safe.
