It has been a great summer, but now it is time to go back to school. Students who live at Burnam Woods, Chatham Gardens, and Old Orchards apartments will start school Monday August 27th, as both Howard County and Baltimore County public schools start on the same day. If you need back-to-school clothes, get to the stores by Saturday because Maryland’s Tax Free Week ends August 18th. Select clothing and shoes under $100 are exempt from Maryland state tax, so you will save 6% on each item. Please click here for the complete list of exempt and taxable items.
If you would like to donate school supplies, we will have a box in each of our leasing offices. We will deliver your donated school supplies to the appropriate schools. And starting August 27th, please remember to watch out for stopped school buses and children crossing the street. Have a safe and happy school year!
