AACPS: 2-Hour Delay Wednesday, 17 Schools Without Power
Parents are urged to use caution when getting their children to bus stops on Wednesday.
Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) will open two hours late Wednesday for students and staff in the wake of the storm impact of Sandy, according to a press release. However, there are some schools that will be closed because they don't have power.
With the late start, all morning half-day kindergarten and ECI classes are cancelled. However, students in full-day kindergarten will have class, but should report two hours late.
The end of the marking period was scheduled for Friday, but that deadline could change if officials so desire. The decision will be made later in the day Wednesday, according to the press release.
AACPS officials urge local parents to be careful and exercise good judgment when getting their children to bus stops Wednesday morning.
