Decision Made!

Alliah Johnson and Mar-C Holland

The Prince George’s County Board of Education voted to extend the school year by three days to make up instructional time lost to inclement weather. Maryland elected officials recently passed emergency legislation that enables school districts to add up to five days beyond the state-mandated last day for students (June 15) to make up for days lost due to inclement weather. The last day of school for students will now be Wednesday, June 20. There will be a two-hour early dismissal on June 19 and June 20. For more information, visit
