2017-2018 Calendar Notes
Inclement Weather & Emergency School Closings
This calendar has three days built in at the end of the school year for emergency closings, making the school year 184 student days and 194 teacher days. If any of the three emergency days are not used, they shall be deducted from the June closing date.
If more than three additional makeup days are needed:
- Monday, April 2 may be used as a potential makeup day.
- If emergency closings affect the end of any marking period, the calendar will be adjusted and the marking period extended so that both early dismissal days occur at the end of the marking period. This applies to all schools.
- There must be one non-student day between the second and third marking periods
Tests and examinations shall not be scheduled on the day of a major religious observance. Tests and examinations for evening high school will not be scheduled on the day a religious observance begins. Jewish and Muslim dates are set according to the Lunar calendar; they begin at sundown on the preceding evening and conclude at sundown on the dates noted.
- September 1: Eid al-Adha
- September 21–22: Rosh Hashanah
- September 30: Yom Kippur
Testing dates are subject to change dependent on the Maryland State Department of Education’s testing calendar.
