District School Calendar Changes for 2022-2023
The School Board approved a change to the 2022-23 district calendar to add Kindergarten Transition Days (half days) on Aug. 29 and 30, with the first day of full-day classes for kindergarten on Sept. 7. The board added Kindergarten Transition Days this year in order to provide the benefits of the program to all incoming kindergarten students. Input from parents and teachers provided broad support to continue to offer these half-day experiences to all kindergarten students next year and in future calendars.
The revised 2022-23 district calendar also clarifies that Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 will be the first two days of school for students in grades 6-12 next fall. These were identified as Student Success Days in the first version of the 2022-23 calendar approved by the board in December 2020. Elementary assessment days will also be held Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, and the first day school for grades 1-5 will be Sept. 6. There will be no school for all students Friday, Sept. 2 and Labor Day Monday, Sept. 5. Friday, Dec. 23, 2022 was also changed to a day of no school for all students and staff, and in exchange the last day of school for all students was moved back one day to Wednesday, June 7, 2023.
