You also may view and/or download printable PDFs of the full calendar and/or important dates only. Updates to the PDFs will be noted on the HCPSS calendar page.

PLEASE NOTE! The calendar is subject to change. The online calendar reflects the most recent version.

The academic calendar is designed to provide for continuity in instructional programming and time for teachers to engage in professional work and growth activities, while reflecting respect for student and staff religious observances and allowing a traditional break from school work during the winter and spring. The calendar complies with Maryland law requiring at least 180 instructional days and Governor Hogan’s 2016 Executive Order, as well as negotiated agreements and district policies.
