  • Week of January 4-8:
    • Second semester begins for students on Wednesday, January 6.
    • Tuesday, Jan. 5, was added to Monday, Jan 4, as a teacher workday/student holiday because many schools are election polling sites.

  • Week of January 11-15:
    • Middle and high school students will participate in remote learning on Jan. 11 and Jan. 12, while elementary students return to school for Face-to-Face instruction, if they chose the in-person learning model for second semester.
    • On Jan. 13, PreK-12 students (except those who chose remote learning) will come back for Face-to-Face instruction.
