Changes to the 2017-2018 school calendar

With the unpredictable weather we have had, as of today (3/14/18) the District has exceeded the number of “snow days’ that were built into the calendar by two (2) days. To make up the days, the District will make the following changes to the school calendar:

      • May 25 will be changed from a recess day to a student attendance day
      • April 6 will be changed from a recess day to a Superintendent’s Conference Day (no students)

With the current weather pattern, if we need to close again, additional adjustments to the calendar will be needed.
