On Tuesday, May 1 the Somerset County Board of Education voted to extend the school year to June 18th and 19th. This was done due to the denial of our weather waiver request by the Maryland State Board of Education last Tuesday. Due to emergency legislation allowing the school year to be extended, we must now extend to the 18th and 19th. The calendar for those days is below.
