Baltimore County public schools will close three days earlier than planned this year because of unused emergency closing days, a county school spokeswoman said.

Classes will end three hours early on Monday, June 12 and Tuesday, June 13, according to school officials. June 13 will be the last day of classes for all students.

Chief communications officer Kara Calder said yesterday that reducing the current school year by three days would allow the school system to meet the state's requirement of 180 school days and 1,170 school hours.
