Principals and teachers have indicated a need for more time to collaborate without adding additional school days to the calendar. These are the reasons:

  1. Teachers need consistent time for instructional planning.
  2. The lack of substitutes creates an inability for teachers to receive training or collaborate as they normally would during the school day.
  3. The staff needs social and emotional wellness time to be well-prepared for effective instruction and their well-being.
  4. Teachers are consistently working beyond their contract hours. This year is significantly different from previous years.

October 27, November 10, and December 8 will now be early dismissal days. (All Wednesdays.)

Revised calendar shown below, and that revised calendar is also available on our main calendar page.
