HARFORD COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) — A committee made up of school officials and community representatives is recommending Harford County Public Schools start classes ahead of Labor Day for the 2020-21 school year.

A draft calendar calls for classes to begin September 1 with the last day of classes falling on June 9, unless all of the district’s inclement weather days are needed. Pre-kindergarten students would start on September 3 and end on June 7.

Labor Day in 2020 falls on September 7.

Public comment on the school calendar is open through December 13; the school board will make a final decision on December 16.

Other area school systems are also weighing the benefits and drawbacks of starting school prior to Labor Day.
