IMPORTANT MESSAGE: CHANGE IN CALENDAR FOR FRIDAY, NOV. 16

Posted November 14 at 5:19pm

The latest weather forecast is requiring us to make some changes in the district’s calendar.

  • Friday, Nov. 16: FULL DAY of school
    — Originally scheduled as a conference half-day to accommodate parent-teacher conferences, Friday, Nov. 16 is now a full day of instruction. In event of a weather-related delayed opening on Friday, a full day of school will help preserve the use of snow days into the winter season.
  • Parent-Teacher Conferences rescheduled for Friday, Nov. 30, now a half-day
     This calendar change means that Friday, Nov. 30 is now a conference half-day. 


We appreciate your understanding and wanted to provide as much advance notice as possible. As always, the safety of our students, faculty and staff remains our first priority.
