Schools weigh options as snow days dwindle

As winter weather continues to impact the state, school systems are starting to grow concerned about running out of snow days.

In Baltimore County, students have missed four days of school, but the system has three additional snow days at its disposal.

Baltimore County schools spokesman Mychael Dickerson said the system is weighing all options should they run out of snow days.

"We are starting to have conversations now that we are down to three days left," Dickerson said. "But, there is nothing concrete at this point."

Among other school systems, Harford County built seven snow days into its schedule and has three remaining, while Howard and Carroll counties have used four of their five days.

Anne Arundel County and Baltimore City have no snow days remaining.

Anne Arundel County schools spokesman Bob Mosier said the system has a plan in place in order to ensure students attend classes for the legally-mandated 180 days.

"We [will] add the days onto the end of the school year unless we pursue and receive a waiver from Maryland State Department of Education," Mosier said
