Parents, February 10, 2015
At the school board meeting held on Monday, February 9th it was approved to hold school on President’s Day (February 16) as well as Good Friday (April 3).
This change in our school calendar is due to the fact we have already missed 7 school days due to inclement weather.
I know this may cause a problem for some families that have made other plans for these two days. However, we believe it is the best educational decision to make up days prior to ISTEP and ECA testing. Also, days added to the school calendar in June do not usually accomplish as much educationally as days made up earlier in the school year.
Currently our last day of school for students would be on Wednesday June 3rd. ** High School Graduation – Friday – June 5th
