On Christmas Eve, we close at 3:00 p.m. In addition, we close for two or three staff in-service days (one day prior to the start of the summer program and one or two days before school starts in the fall). We may possibly close an additional day around Christmas.

We are OPEN on most MCPS scheduled closure dates including:
