2019-2020 Calendar and School Start Times
The 2019-2020 School Calendar has been finalized and approved. There are a few dates on the calendar that should be noted. The first being that the first day of classes for the 2019-2020 school year will be the day after Labor Day, September 3rd, once again. Second, on December 19th and 20th we have scheduled professional development days. These days will be used to move into the new 7-12 building. There will be more information to come on this as we arrange for a dedication ceremony and an open house. The final date is February 14th which will be used as a make-up day for the district if more than 8 days of school are missed before then because of delays and cancellations.

Additionally, an adjustment has been made in start times for the upcoming school year. The JSHS will be starting at 7:45 am and will be in session until 2:35 pm. The elementary building will be starting at 8:45 am and will get out at 3:15 pm. This is for all students PK-6. There were several factors that led to this decision - more daylight time for walkers at the JSHS as well as getting all of the elementary students on one schedule as they will be in one building.
It is too early to announce details at this point, but we are working on a plan to be able to offer before/after school opportunities in some format in order to alleviate multiple trips out to campus. More information available in the months to come.
