LEONARDTOWN, MD – On April 5, 2017, the Board of Education revised the 2016-2017 school system operating calendars. The last day of school for students in St. Mary’s County Public Schools will be Friday, June 9, 2017, and the last day for teachers will be Monday, June 12, 2017. St. Mary’s County Public Schools closed one day this year for inclement weather thus the school year will be shortened by four days since inclement weather days built into the calendar were not used.

• Wednesday, June 7, 2017 will be a two-hour early dismissal day with no school for Head Start and Prekindergarten students
