*The final day of school is tentatively May 24th for students. This is pending approval by the school board at the March or April board meeting. To date, we have missed 1 full day and three 2-hour delays due to inclement weather. This may adjust the final day of school.

*After the board has established the official last day of school, we will work with our feeder middle schools and high school to establish a 5th grade promotion night, a Kindergarten celebration of learning event, staff vs. student basketball game, 5th grade lock in, and field days.
