Send Your Student To School Day

From a school system e-mail to parents:

The fourth Thursday in April has traditionally been designated as national Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day by the Ms. Foundation for Women. This year the Howard County Public School System had scheduled April 22 as a Professional Development Day for teachers. As you know, we now will use that day to make up one of the school days students missed due to the snow.

We recognize that visiting places of employment can have educational benefits for students; however, I am asking HCPSS parents to send their children to school on April 22. This year in particular, we are attempting to avoid any further disruptions to instruction and encourage you to support this effort by having your child in school this Thursday.

If you do choose to take your child to work, your child will not be marked absent for the day.

Sydney L. Cousin, Superintendent
