Our Board of Directors voted during their March 13 meeting on revised calendar dates to make up missed days and instruction hours due to February’s snow. The Board approved the revised calendar dates with the last day of school being Friday, June 21. We received notification from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction that, in addition to making up the school days and instructional hours missed due to snow, we must also make up the time lost during our two hour late starts and our early release. In order to do that, we are making adjustments to our early release Fridays in April and May.
