School Board Discussing Possible Calendar Changes in 2018-19

I wanted to let you know about a school board discussion that could possibly affect our school in the future. On April 4th, school board members will begin discussing the possibility of converting some multi-track year-round schools to a traditional calendar beginning in the 2018-19 school year. They are considering reducing the number of year-round schools in our district. I want to stress that this is the beginning stages of the discussion. No schools are yet proposed to be changed. More information is currently posted on our school’s web site. If our school is proposed to have a calendar change, I will inform you at that time and let you know how you can share your feedback with board members. Thank you for your continued support of our school.
