As a result of School Board action at its meeting on Wednesday, December 3, this year’s Prince William County Public School calendar has been revised. Inauguration Day (January 20) will be a school holiday for all students and staff. In exchange, Presidents Day, which falls this year on February 16, will be a regular school day. This calendar adjustment will be in effect every four years effective January 2009.
All schools and School Division offices are closed on Monday, January 19, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and on Tuesday, January 20, for Inauguration Day.
More information will be forthcoming on elementary level parent/teacher conferences and the high school testing schedule.
I am not sure how this will effect education but it should ease the traffic situation. We apparently have become more a part of the metropolitan area.
[UPDATE: Manassas Park Schools will also be closed Inauguration Day, Jan 20]
