    LAST DAY OF CLASSES

    The school closure has impacted the school calendar but AACPS has taken measures to avoid extension of the school year any further than necessary. The original primary election date of April 28 and two unneeded inclement weather days have been converted to instructional days, necessitating the addition of just two days onto the end of the year. The last day of classes for students is now June 18.
