Our School Board approved the amended 2018-19 academic calendar to recover the lost instructional time missed during our recent snow storm. With the support of the SEA leadership, the district proposed a shift for the remaining early release days to return to regularly scheduled days, as well as extending the last student contact day through Friday, June, 14.
While the district was intentional last year in identifying potential make-up days in our calendar to accommodate for inclement weather, this year Mother Nature delivered the wintery blow after those days had passed. This left the need to be creative in assessing the needs of our students, staff, families and our community to account for the missed instruction. This one-time solution will help us make-up the lost time while still attempting to minimize impact to previously scheduled activities, camps, etc.
To recapture as much time as possible, this change is immediate which means that this Friday, March 15, will NOT be an early release day.
