Upcoming School Calendar Changes

Please allow me to extend my sincere appreciation for your support of our school employees during the recent work stoppage. We are so excited to be back in school and working with our students.  School systems have been directed to make every effort to recoup as much instructional time as possible.  The plan to accomplish this task was carefully thought out and every option considered.  As such, the following changes have been made to our school calendar...
