Grade 09 Early Entry Program

In support of our students’ successful transitions to Grade 9, we invite students to participate in an Early Entry Day program. Baltimore County Public Schools is excited to announce that it will host a half-day “Early Entry Day" on Thursday, August 30, 2018, for students entering Grade 9 for the 2018-2019 school year. Students will participate in a wide variety of activities – designed based on student feedback – to become more familiar with their new school setting prior to the start of school. Students will review their class schedules, meet teachers and school counselors, meet their advisors, become familiar with the campus, and so much more.

Transportation will be provided for those students who are scheduled to take a bus to school. Those students will be picked up at their assigned bus stops at their regularly scheduled times and will be transported home at the end of the half-day schedule. A complimentary lunch will be served to all participating students, and students will be able to add funds to their dining hall accounts in preparation for the first day of school.

The Early Entry Day is for students only and will not replace other school-based student-parent orientation activities. More detailed information regarding the Early Entry Day, such as specific bus stops, hours of the morning half-day, and the agenda for the day will be provided in early August 2018.

We are looking forward to welcoming our new Grade 9 students on Thursday, August 30, 2018, and while not required, we hope your student will take advantage of this opportunity. The first regular day of school for all students is Tuesday, September 5, 2018.
