Harford County Public Schools Open Thursday

Students will not be in class Friday through Monday, Nov. 6.

Harford County public school students will return to class for one day this week in the wake of superstorm Sandy.

The school system announced Wednesday evening schools will reopen Thursday, Nov. 1.

Students won't be in class for long, however, as they are already scheduled to be off Friday, Nov. 2 through Monday, Nov. 6. for teacher in-service and the election.

Harford County government will also reopen Thursday. Courts reopened Wednesday.

I GUESS HCPS DOESN'T CARE ABOUT ALL THE FAMILIES WITHOUT POWER OR THE THIRTY SOME ROADS STILL CLOSED... ANOTHER GREAT DECISION BY HCPS

We should be thankful that we have our homes, and endure a little inconvenience.

Little inconvenience???? Putting kids in danger by picking them up on dark roads that don't have power?? They could have atleast went two hours late... Atleast then it would have been daylight outside...

Kinda have to agree with the daylight point. If it effected our kids, we'd be the first speaking out about it and thanks, Brian, how does one get a date/day like that mixed up. Come on, editors.

Monday is not Nov 6. Schools are closed through TUESDAY (election day) Nov. 6.

The message I got from Terry Kranefeld was, if you don't feel it is safe, keep them home. I drove my daughter in just to make sure she got there since some roads are still closed. I am thankful school is open, I am unable to take any more time off - plus she was getting stir crazy! But if I felt it would be dangerous to send her in, I would have kept her home.

It's not dangerous. I have to assume you're talking about the high school students, since it's blazingly daylight when the elementary students are picked up. There are bus stops all over the county without street lights (as in, no street lights period; not just because there's no power), so it's normal for the high schoolers to be picked up at those locations in relative darkness.
