Calendar & Schedule Updates -- Daily Schedule Begins in April!

The planning is well underway for us to welcome our students from the current schedule to a 5-days-a-week schedule of learning! Whether your child comes to school or is learning fully remotely, all students/families will be impacted by this change, as students will all have instruction with their classroom teachers Monday through Friday.


Post-Spring Break Calendar Updates:


  • Monday, April 5 -- NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS (Staff Planning)
  • Tuesday, April 6 -- NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS (Staff Planning)
  • Wednesday, April 7 - April 29 -- DAILY (MOD) SCHEDULE
  • Friday, April 30 -- NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS (Staff Planning)
  • Monday, May 3 - June 10 -- DAILY (MOD) SCHEDULE (No school May 31 - Memorial Day)


I am currently working to organize staffing and schedule to make it all work and will be ready to communicate more in the next Avoca West News. Stay tuned!
