Hi Amy

Frederick County gets out on or around June 18 depending on number of snow days used. I checked Carroll and Montgomery County school web sites and they get out around the same time so I would think most if not all of Maryland Schools will be out around the same time.

Good morning everyone! We am pleased to announce that Blind Industries and Services of Maryland is going to have a three week summer program for middle-school aged children during the summer of 2012. The program will include learning blindness skills from blind mentors/instructors like our Independence 2011 program but well will include more recreational and fun activities.

We are in the process of developing the program but we need to get an idea of when schools close for the summer in the North East and Mid-Atlantic Region or any other areas that may have interest in our program. Please email me at aphelps at bism.org<mailto:aphelps at bism.org> with any scheduling information you have regarding when schools close for the summer.

Warm regards,

Amy C. Phelps, CRC, NOMC
