Important 2016-17 Traditional Calendar Update - Please Read

After the 2016-17 traditional school calendar was posted, it was discovered that there were only 214 days listed. As you may know, we pay our 10-month employees for 215 days. To keep in line with our salary schedule, we added an additional optional workday to the calendar at the end of the year. Please make note that June 15 is now an optional workday and June 16 is an annual leave day. Click here to view the 2016-17 traditional calendar.
