AACPS reminds parents any more inclement weather could change semester break

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.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
