The summer of '93 promises to be unusually short for Baltimore County students and teachers. Blame it on late Labor Day.This school year, classes started after Labor Day and will close June 18, at the earliest. Next school year, according to a calendar the county school board approved last week, classes will begin Aug. 30, a week before Labor Day. That means summer vacation will last just 10 weeks, compared with about 12 weeks for previous summers. It will be even shorter for teachers, who are scheduled to report Aug. 24."
