2018-2019 SCHOOL CALENDAR INFORMATION
The Board of Directors has approved the general structure of the school calendar for the 2018-2019 school year, though we are waiting on final approval from the Diocese. The calendar remains similar to this year's calendar in terms of start date, week of August 20, and end date, week of May 31, and two full weeks off for Christmas Break. However, there is one important change resulting from a very late date for Easter, which is April 21, 2019. We will be separating Spring Break from the Easter Weekend. Spring Break will be March 25-29, 2019. School will also be closed for the Easter Weekend , Good Friday, April 19 through Easter Monday, April 22. This calendar change protects the instructional time following the return from Spring Break while allowing us, as a school community, to celebrate Holy Week activities together.
APRIL BOARD MEETING TIME CHANGE
The Wednesday, April 18 SCCS Board meeting will begin at 7:00pm.
