2023-24 Draft School Calendars
There are a few changes to the school hours, which are listed at the bottom of each school calendar, so that bad weather make-up minutes are already planned into each calendar to be used to make-up the first two bad weather days. The scheduled bad weather days will only be used for days beyond the first two if we are not able to get a waiver for those days.
