School Calendar Changes

Due to a loss of instructional days this week, we have some important calendar changes to tell you about.

  • Wednesday, January 24, 2018, will now be a regular school day.
  • Friday, January 26, 2018 will now be designated as an early release day for all schools. This time is needed to complete first semester grading and for high schools to transition from first to second semester.
  • Thursday, February 22 will become a full day of attendance.
  • Friday, February 23 will become a student attendance day with an Early Release. The early release for staff originally set for February 22 will now be observed on February 23.
  • The two additional days lost will be made up at the end of the year, moving the last student attendance day to Tuesday, June 12.


Please be aware that at the beginning of second semester, Buncombe County Schools will send out a parent/staff survey to gather input and gauge opinions on how we should make up any further loss of instructional time.
