2019-2020 CALENDAR


As we wrap up this school year, we are waiting for legislation updates in order for the State Board of Education to allow school districts to submit their calendars for next year. Once we are able to submit our calendar, we will release the calendar and post it on our website. In the meantime, we can share some important changes for next year:

  • Early Releases - Early releases will occur two times per month beginning in September. On the first and third Wednesday of each month, we will dismiss 5th-8th grade students at 1:15 pm and PK-4th grade students at 1:45 pm. Teachers will use this time for staff meetings, curriculum meetings and data analysis meetings. These early releases are crucial to our student achievement improvement.
  • First Day of School is August 14th.
  • Parent-Teacher Conferences will be September 26-27. This is much earlier than usual, as we would like to meet with parents in the middle of the first trimester to establish the positive home-school relationship.
  • Winter Break will be December 23 - January 3. School will resume on Monday, January 6th.
  • Spring Break will be March 23-27.
  • Last Day of School will be May 20th (early release dismissal this day) as long as we do not use any snow days.
