Grand Prix will cause six schools to open late on Thursday, Friday
In the wake of two natural disasters in one week that caused damages and power outages at dozens of city schools, and the first-ever delay to the start of the school year--as far as anyone can recall--six Baltimore city schools will have to make way for another whirl of inconvenience.
The city will open all but nine schools on Thursday due to continuing power outages, but other schools will be impacted by the Grand Prix event this weekend.
Six Baltimore city schools will open one-hour late on Thursday, Sept.1 and Friday, Sept. 2, according to the city schools website, to allow extra travel time for parents and students who live or attend school in the downtown area.
The affected schools are:
• Digital Harbor High School #416
• Federal Hill Preparatory School #45
• Francis Scott Key Elementary/Middle School #76
• George Washington Elementary School #22
• Sharp-Leadenhall Elementary School #314
• Thomas Johnson Elementary /Middle School #84
