FYI! Mark Your Calendars

As we have worked through our new trimester scheduling model, there were several unforeseen challenges regarding our traditional calendar that needed adjustment mid-year. We are emailing families today to notify you of these schedule adjustments, so that families have plenty of time to make plans for days when school is not in session.

At the Dec. 15th Board of Education meeting, two adjustments to the current school calendar were approved:

  1. Added Teacher Workday January 28th- this is a workday for staff at the end of Parent/Teacher Conference Week to schedule parent meetings as needed. No school for students.
  2. The Teacher Professional Development (PD) day we have scheduled for March 4th will be moved to Feb. 28th- to provide a PD day after the end of 2nd trimester.
  3. (This is a simple move from the planned Friday PD day to move to a Monday. This switch in days provides a break after the end of 2nd trimester for students transitioning to a new schedule, and allows a workday for teachers to complete report cards and end of trimester grading.)

SPREAD THE WORD TO JOIN OUR TRIBE!

Dates on your Radar:

12/22: Early Dismissal @1:10pm

12/23-1/4: Winter Break-No School

1/5 SCHOOL RESUMES!

THIS IS WHY Class Dojo is SO HELPFUL!
