Changes to the EARLY RELEASE and LATE ARRIVAL Schedules

Recap of the email sent by the MISD Communications Department to parents on 1/15/21:

Due to the inclement weather closure on Monday, January 11, the district needs to make an adjustment to the second semester calendar in order to meet the number of instructional minutes required by the state. The following changes have been made to elementary and secondary schedules:

  • For elementary campuses, there will no longer be an early release day on Wednesday, March 10. Elementary student dismissal on Wednesday, March 10 will now be at the regularly scheduled time.
  • For secondary campuses, there will no longer be a late arrival day on Wednesday, April 21. Secondary student arrival on Wednesday, April 21 will now be at the regularly scheduled time.

Please note that with these changes, we have avoided the need to add an additional day of instruction to the calendar. The last day of the 2020-21 school year is still Tuesday, May 25.

Thank you for your understanding, patience and flexibility this school year.
