Changes to 2018-19 School Calendar

The Board of Trustees has made some minor changes to the 2018-19 calendar.  The changes were made in response to feedback from parents at the end of this school year. School will begin as scheduled on Wednesday, Aug. 29,  but will now end Friday, May 31. The new calendar DOES NOT affect Thanksgiving Break, Christmas Break or Spring break. The changes include:

  • Regular school days on Oct. 5 and Jan. 21, which were originally scheduled as PD/Inservice days.
  • A reduction in instructional hours closer to the minimum allowed by the state.
  • High school graduations will be rescheduled some time the week of May 27.

In the coming months, the district will gather more input from parents, teachers, staff and patrons on future school calendars. Questions? Send them to us.
