It’s possible that Montgomery County Public Schools students won’t have to make up the three snow days they missed after all.March 5 Snow Boys & Shovels 450x280

MCPS School Board has applied for a waiver of up to three days from the Maryland State Department of Education.

According to Interim Superintendent Larry Bowers, making up the three snow days would cost the school system more than $1.72 million.

The school board hopes to apply for the waiver soon so a decision is reached and the school system calendar can be finalized, said MCPS Spokesman Dana Tofig.

“Cost is a motivating factor here,” Tofig told MyMCMedia.
