The School Board has opted to replace 5 total days of the 9 that have been lost due to inclement weather. We already made up one day on February 17th. May 23rd will be reinstated as a Teacher Workday (non-student). June 16, 17, 18, 19 will now be student days. June 20th will be a Teacher Workday. The schools will work with families that already have unavoidable, prearranged conflicts. This will be the final calendar change, regardless of future inclement weather. The last day for seniors and graduation day HAVE NOT changed. Please contact the schools if you have any questions.
