Snow Day Make-Up Plan

Starting Monday, March 30, all schools will begin their day at 7:55 am. Bus routes in the morning will run 10 minutes earlier than normal.

The end of the school day will be lengthened by 10 minutes. All elementary schools will be dismissed at 2:55 pm, the junior high will be dismissed at 3:05 pm, and the high school will be dismissed at 3:15 P.M. (The other ten minutes are adjustments made throughout the school day to equal 30 minutes total.)

This change will continue throughout the rest of this school year. By making this minor adjustment, the last day of school for all students will be Friday, May 22. The last day for staff members will be Tuesday, May 26.

Graduation date has NOT changed and is planned for Friday night at 7:00 P.M. on Friday, May 22. By making this adjustment, NO STUDENT will have to make up days after Memorial Day.
