WASHINGTON — Prince George’s County Public Schools accidentally tweeted an outdated school schedule on Sunday that would have interrupted their recently-regained spring break.
The tweet, which has since been deleted, stated that schools would be in session Wednesday through Friday.
Schools are not in session, as clarified by another tweet from the account.

The Maryland General Assembly appears set to pass the bill, as both the House and Senate have passed the measure. Because of a House amendment, though, the legislation must go back to the Senate for final approval.
The Senate is expected to accept the amendment and send the bill to Gov. Larry Hogan, whose spokesman said he will sign.
