School's Out A Little Earlier

From the school's super:

To all HCPSS Parents and Students,

I have received word from State Superintendent of Schools Nancy Grasmick that she has approved my request to waive June 16 as a student day. This means that the last student day for all Howard County public schools this year will be June 13. All school-based staff will report on June 16 to close out the school year.

The schedule for the last days of school is as follows:

June 9 Full day for all students
June 10 Full day for all students; high school exams begin.
June 11 All schools close 3 hours early. no pre-K/RECC; high school exams
June 12 All schools close 3 hours early; no pre-K/RECC; high school exams
June 13 Last student day; all schools close 3 hours early; no pre-K/RECC; high school exams

We were very happy to hear that the kids didn't have to go in for 4 hours on Monday, June 16. I still don't understand why they drag the school year out with a week's worth of half days, rather than just a few whole days.
