Harford County Schools to open 2 hours late for the rest of this week


At least we’re going back to school. The Harford County Public Schools website (www.hcps.org) says schools will open two hours late for the rest of this week. My 11-year-old thinks this is nice way to ease kids into waking up for school.

The 2-hour late school opening news sparked a lively discussion about students’ safety on Bel Air News & View’s Facebook page. Click here to follow the conversation: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bel-Air-News-Views/136958171000?ref=ts Or leave a comment below to let us know what you think.

The district offers several safety tips on its webpagehttp://www.hcps.org/aboutus/inclementweather/default.aspx

It urges parents to supervise children more closely on their walks to bus stops and schools and mentions that bus pick up times will likely be a bit off schedule as buses take longer to navigate the snowy streets.
