2017-2018 School Calendar

posted Apr 28, 2017, 6:44 AM by Kelly Johnston   [ updated May 1, 2017, 7:57 AM ]

At last night's School Board meeting, the Board adopted the 2017-2018 school calendar. The calendar dates closely mirror our current calendar, and the school day start and end times are unchanged for 2017-2018. However, the Board did vote to approve revised school start and end times for the 2018-2019 school year (Option #3 of the proposed calendars). This extra implementation time will allow families and our staff to adequately prepare and plan for the upcoming changes.

As always, we thank our School Board for their ongoing work and dedication to our school community!
