November 23, 2021 Community Update: Board of Ed. Approves 3 Early Release Days for Schools and Offices

Dear Parents and Guardians: 

This evening, the Board of Education approved a plan to close all BCPS schools and offices three hours early on December 23, 2021, March 18, 2022, and May 20, 2022. BCPS is making this adjustment to the calendar as part of its ongoing commitment to provide staff with opportunities to take care of their social, emotional and mental health and wellness. The ongoing pandemic and national worker shortage have taken a tremendous toll on BCPS employees and school system staff across the nation. Staff continue to work tirelessly in support of BCPS students and families and it is our hope that these early release days will provide strategic opportunities to recharge and refocus.  

Here are some important things to note about the early release days: 

  • All after school and evening activities are cancelled on those days, including afternoon Pre-Kindergarten. 
  • These planned early dismissal days do not impact the four remaining inclement weather closure days built into the 2021-2022 school year. 

Thank you for your continued support of Baltimore County Public Schools.  

Dr. Darryl Williams, Ed.D.
