Last Updated on May 12, 2015 at 8:39pm | Public Information Office

The Maryland State Department of Education approved the Garrett County Public School System’s request to have three days waived from the 180-day school year requirement due to the excessive number of school closings because of inclement weather. As a result of MSDE’s approval, the Garrett County Board of Education voted to accept the three day student waiver, thus, making  Tuesday, June 16, 2015, the last day of school for students.  Students will be dismissed 2 hours early on the last three days of school (June 12, 15, and 16).
 
The Board also approved to reduce the contractual days of staff from 187 to 186 with the last day for staff as Friday, June 19, 2015.
