Public schools in two Baltimore area jurisdictions open their doors to students today, one will open tomorrow, and the rest will wait for Labor Day.
The reason for the unusual variety of opening dates is that Labor Day is late this year -- Sept. 7 -- and the school systems had to choose between starting early or ending the school year late in June.
Metropolitan area schools open on the following dates:
* Anne Arundel County: today.
* Baltimore City: tomorrow.
* Baltimore County: Tuesday, Sept 8.
* Carroll County: Tuesday, Sept. 8.
