Revised school calendar next year
The School Board revised the 2022-23 school year calendar previously approved in February 2021. The new calendar does not contain any additional non-school days. However, the revised calendar now reflects non-school days for the following observances:
Monday, September 26: Rosh Hashanah
Monday, October 10: Indigenous Peoples’ Day
Friday, April 21: Eid
The revised calendar contains no other significant changes to traditional breaks including MEA break, Thanksgiving break, winter break and spring break. View the revised calendar here.
Approved school calendar: 2023-24
The Board approved the 2023-24 school year calendar. View the calendar here.
Now there’s a shorter URL option to reach our District’s and school’s web pages. Visitors using mvpschools.org will be directed to the same website as moundsviewschools.org. Either URL can be used successfully. Likewise, visitors can now use this shorter URL as the prefix necessary to reach school sites or other pages (mvpschools.org/schoolname).
At a later date, we anticipate that employee email addresses will also have this shorter option of email@example.com.
