On Tuesday, February 22, our school board approved the calendar for the 2022-2023 school year. Please take note of some of the highlights:
The official first day of school for our students will be Wednesday, August 24. Moving into September, as always, we will have off both Friday, September 2 and Monday, September 5 for the Labor Day holiday. Throughout the calendar, you will find that we have scheduled Act 80 days. These are days that our teachers participate in professional learning, while there is no school for our students. Each of those days are identified on the calendar in green. In addition, you will find that we have scheduled monthly early release days, typically on a Wednesday. On these days, our secondary students will dismiss at 1:00 pm and our elementary students will dismiss at 1:45 pm. These days will be used for our teachers to spend time collaborating with their peers and participating in building or district level training. These days are highlighted in gray on the calendar.
As we move into November, we will have parent-teacher conferences on November 21 and November 22 and then our Thanksgiving break will begin on Wednesday, November 23. Students will return to school on Tuesday, November 29th.In December we will have our Winter break from Friday, December 23 until Monday, January 2. All students and staff will be off from school on Monday, January 16 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
We have also built in three inclement weather makeup days in our calendar. Therefore, if we need to close school due to inclement weather, we will have school on those built in days. We anticipate that any inclement weather days beyond those three will be made up the week of June 5. Please note that this could change if we determine that the district will apply for Flexible Instruction Days for next school year. If that would occur, we will provide an updated calendar reflecting that change.
In February, on Monday, February 20 there will be no school for students or staff in observance of Presidents Day. In March, we have scheduled conferences on the evening of March 2 and all day March 3. Our first weather make-up day will be on Monday, March 6. In April, we have our second and third weather make-up days scheduled for Wednesday, April 5 and Thursday, April 6. If we do not need to use those days, Spring Break will run from Wednesday, April 5 through Monday, April 10. We have an early dismissal scheduled for Friday, May 26 and will be off on Monday, May 29 for Memorial Day. Pending no need to make up additional days due to inclement weather, our last day for students will be June 2. That is also graduation day for the Class of 2023!
Our district calendar is posted on the homepage of our website, so it is always easily accessible. Please note that the calendar is always subject to change and we will inform you of any of those changes through our district communications channels.
