PGCPS ADJUSTS SCHOOL CALENDAR FOR APRIL 2, 2015

unnamed (1)

Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) has decided to convert April 2, 2015 into an instructional day with a two-hour early dismissal for students. Spring break remains April 3-10 for students and teachers.

Seven days of school have been missed this year by PGCPS students due to inclement weather. The PGCPS school calendar for 2014-2015 includes plans for four inclement weather make-up days on June 18, 19, 22, and 23, 2015.

To address the additional inclement weather closures beyond the build and possible addition of three inclement weather make-up days, Chief Executive Officer Dr. Kevin M. Maxwell requested a two-day waiver for PGCPS from the Maryland State Board of Education. Once a decision is rendered a new update will be announced on the entire inclement weather calendar adjustment plan.

PGCPS understands school delays or closures greatly impact students, families, and staff. When making decisions to close or delay schools, the district’s key focus is on the safety of students and staff. We appreciate your patience during this time.
