BALTIMORE — Due to impending excessive heat, several schools across Baltimore County will be closing on Thursday. Dozens of schools in Baltimore City will be dismissing 3-hours early Thursday.
Baltimore County Schools announced they will be closing all non air-conditioned facilities Thursday.
The following schools will be closed:
Campfield Early Learning Center
Catonsville Center for Alternative Studies
Watershed Public Charter School
Our children need safe, modern school facilities to learn and grow. The need to close non air-conditioned schools because of extreme heat is a strong reminder that not all of our students have adequate learning environments. https://t.co/lctECSMNkTpic.twitter.com/Xsku5QTSmM
