Last Day Of School
Posted on April 6, 2021
The last day of school has been set for June 11 for all students. Monday, June 14 is the last day for teachers.
School calendars are approved by the Board of Education before the start of the school year. State law dictates that at least three (3) inclement weather days be built into the calendar which factors into determining the last day of school. The last day is normally announced once the potential for inclement weather has reasonably passed.
This school year, students were able to learn virtually when they could not be safety transported for in-person learning. As a result, no inclement weather days were used and the school year is ending earlier than indicated the approved calendar.

Summer School Opportunities for Students Survey
Parents and guardians, please remember even though your student(s) is not in the building learning, an absence still requires a parent or doctor note to be turned into the school within 10 days of the absence.
Notes may be emailed to the teacher or Mrs. Kellner (firstname.lastname@example.org). As in the past, your doctor, dentist, etc. can fax a note to 410 634 1789.
If you are sending a parent note, be sure to include the reason for the absence. If you are planning a trip, notify your child's teacher prior to leaving by emailing the teacher. Teacher's will notify the office so the absence can be approved by Mr. Sutton and documented as parent note.
Technology Support for students and parents. Please share with your families.
