HCS Weekly Memo

Note from the School Board regarding 2023-2024 Spring Break

Dear HCS Families - back in 2022, we received word from the St. Joe County ISD that the Superintendents of the Districts had voted to move Spring Break from the first week of April to the last week of March. In an effort to keep our school families informed (for planning purposes, etc...), the Board wanted to let you know of the change as soon as possible. The ISD Superintendents have since voted to rescind their overall decision, but will keep Spring Break for 2024 to be the last week in March and then in 2025 return to the first week of April. Because this is not a permanent decision and there are ramifications for ITerm week, the Mexico Missions Trip, etc... the Board has voted to keep our Spring Break to be the first week of April in 2024 and HCS will be back on track with Three Rivers and the other county schools the following year. The 2023-2024 calendar is attached and you will see it reflected as it has been changed back to follow our previous pattern. We are hopeful that this does not cause to much of a problem for families and that there is time for you to make any adjustments necessary. We apologize for the confusion.
