Board considers calendar options for 2022-2023
Both calendar options have school beginning the week before Labor Day, and feature the staggered starts provided in recent years to help students get familiar with new schools and/or classrooms. In both options the first day of school would be:
- Aug. 29 for grades 6 & 9
- Aug. 30 for grades 7, 8, 10-12
- Sept. 6 for K-5 (Ready, Set, Go conferences would be held Aug. 29 - Sept. 1)
Option 1 would have a shorter winter break, spring break would be held later in March and the school year would end on June 2.
Option 2 would provide an extra day off prior to Thanksgiving in November, extend winter break for a full two weeks, hold spring break earlier in March and end the school year on June 7.
The board will vote on a final version of the calendar at its January 20 board meeting. You can share your feedback with board members by emailing email@example.com.
