District Calendar Revision

February 8, 2018 - The District Calendar was amended at the February 5th Board of Education meeting. Students in Grades K-6 will be dismissed early (at 11:55) on June 15th. There are a number of factors that brought about this update to the district calendar. The New York State Education Department (NYSED) issued guidance on the use of half days throughout the school year in particularly when a half-day is used as the last days of school. In addition, we have a contractual obligation to our K-6 teaching staff to provide a day and a half without students the last week of school. At the time of the NYSED clarification on half day use our 2018-2019 district calendar had already been finalized.

Working with our teachers union to comply with NYSED attendance policies the agreement was made to dismiss K-6 students at 11:55 on June 15th. This ensures that we meet the required weekly instructional hours. The last day of school for students in grades K-6 will be Thursday, June 21 and it will be a full day.
