    *PGCPS received a waiver from the state to convert this mandated holiday to an instructional day. 

    1NOTES ON LAST DAYS – The last days for students and teachers have been adjusted to include five make-up days. The state granted a waiver for 5 of the 10 days schools were closed by Governor Hogan from March 16-27. The statewide closure from March 30 through the end of the school year will count as student learning days. Last days for 10- and 11-month employees will be determined at a later date.

    RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS – Major religious holidays are noted for planning purposes only. Jewish and Muslim holidays begin the day before at sunset. To avoid excluding students, families and staff from important meetings or activities, PGCPS prohibits scheduling these events on major holidays noted with an asterisk (*) on this calendar. This restriction does not apply to state or regional events.
