The recent snowstorm and school cancellations have prompted changes to the school calendar.
* Students and staff will now have a full day of school on Friday, March 24th, which had been scheduled as an early dismissal conference day.
* Friday, April 14th, will now be an early dismissal conference day. Students will be dismissed at 12:45. April 14th had been scheduled as the first day of spring vacation.
These schedule changes have been made to accommodate a sixth snow day used by the district on March 15th. Although the recent storm did include the declaration of a state of emergency for the region, that declaration does not alter the district’s responsibility to be in session for at least 180 days. The state Department of Education has advised that scheduled vacation days must be used to make up any shortfall if extra snow days are used.
Anyone with questions about the schedule changes is invited to contact the main office for more information.
