The Wingspan received its initial report that schools were closed from the HCPSS website (www.hcpss.org) at 5:59 p.m. However, after we published the closing, HCPSS withdrew the statement from their site. We have since received news from the Baltimoresun.com and an official document from HCPSS stating that the following schools, still without power, may be closed if power is not restored by 5 a.m.: Bollman Bridge Elementary School, Dayton Oaks Elementary School, Longfellow Elementary School, Triadelphia Ridge Elementary School, Folly Quarter Middle School, Patuxent Valley Middle School, Wilde Lake Middle School, Glenelg High School, Hammond High School and Wilde Lake High School. HCPSS will update the status of restoring power to those schools on its website by 5 a.m.
The Wingspan regrets any confusion caused by the misinformation it received originally from the HCPSS website.
