Fairfax County, Loudoun County and Prince William County public schools have already voted to start classes next year before Labor Day.
Arlington County Public Schools won’t make a decision on next year’s calendar until February.
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s 2016 executive order requiring schools to open after Labor Day was overturned earlier this year by the Maryland General Assembly.
