School calendar change coming 2017
A calendar shift has been approved by the school board for the 2017-2018 school year. In 2017, the first day of school will be  August 21st and the last day of school in the spring of 2018 will be May 23rd, two weeks earlier than usual. This one-year calendar adjustment will allow extra time in the summer to complete construction projects at many of the district's buildings without disrupting student learning.
 
The school year calendar returns to normal in 2018-2019, with the first day of school scheduled after labor day and the last day scheduled for early June.
 
The approved district calendar for 2017-2018 can be found  here and 2018-2019 calendar can be found   here on the district website.
 
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to upgrade learning spaces around the district.
