If you were among those hoping schools would be closed a little bit longer this week, you may have been disappointed that Winter Storm Stella only brought a few inches of snow to Baltimore. But those days off are probably still happening — just when the weather is a bit nicer.
According to the Baltimore Sun, schools in Baltimore city, county and the metro area are likely to get off earlier than expected because they did not have to use snow days. How many days depends on where you go to school. WBAL Radio puts the number around of snow days left for area school districts around 4-8 days. Of course, that’s as long as we don’t get anymore snow this winter. With temperatures on the way back up, we’re daring to say that looks unlikely.
Couple that with Gov. Larry Hogan’s fall announcement that schools can’t start before Labor Day, and that means the total time off will be a couple weeks longer.
Whether you want it or not, it’s going to be a long summer.
