Noted on the HCPSS website:

Code Blue – Schools Open Two Hours Late

All Howard County public schools will open 2 hours late today, Wednesday, January 8. All morning sessions of half-day Pre-K and RECC are canceled. Offices will open late. We will reevaluate by 7:30 a.m.

All morning child care programs, sponsored by the Columbia Association and the Department of Recreation & Parks in Howard County public schools, will be delayed 2 hours.


Note the “We will reevaluate by 7:30 a.m.”…so stay tuned folks…this may change later this morning depending on how the roads look throughout the county.

Article update: Looks like no change in the status after the reevaluation at 7:30am:
