At the School Board meeting on Oct. 17, 2018, the Board adopted the 2019-20 school calendar. The school year begins with a pre-Labor Day opening. The first day of school will be Monday, Aug. 26, 2019, and the last day of school will be Friday, June 12, 2020. Schools will be closed for the winter break from Dec. 23, 2019 through Jan. 3, 2020.
In August, parents and community members were asked to share their input via a survey regarding preferences for the 2019-20 school calendar in terms of start and end date, as well as winter break.
Feedback received indicated that the majority surveyed preferred a pre-Labor Day option. The 2019-20 calendar includes a full two-week winter break, which is also reflected in the results of the survey.
