So why must Anne Arundel County spend $14.4 million to build a new Davidsonville Elementary School, when other counties are building schools for about half the price?Some of the extra cost is in the site.Building the 600-student school at Central Avenue and Queen Anne Bridge Road would require major road improvements to allow separate bus and car lanes as well as a traffic signal. Total cost: $200,000.Because public water is not available, the builder would have to dig a well and install water treatment, septic and underground sprinkler systems.

The students tripped out of Jacobsville Elementary School three hours early yesterday with a giddiness that belied the heat."This is my favorite day of the whole school year," declared Travis Haas, a fourth-grader, as he scurried to catch his bus.A combination of temperatures in the low 90s and humidity prompted the Anne Arundel County Board of Education to close all elementary,middle and high schools.The Memorial Day holiday compounded the problem. "The schools had been closed for three days, and the heat had really built up," said spokeswoman Jane Doyle.
