The calendar for this upcoming school year has arrived and it is much different than it has been in the past. The school year starts earlier, ends earlier, and has more breaks throughout.
To begin, the school year is starting much earlier this year. It is starting on August 9, 2021. In the past, the school year has not started until around August 20, so this will be a change.
The school year will consist of more breaks throughout. We have no school on September 6 for Labor day and the first quarter ends on October 11. The next break is Thanksgiving, the last full week in November.
The end of the second quarter is on December 17, 2021 and there will be early dismissal that day. Christmas break is from December 20-31. The next day off from school is January 17; Martin Luther King Junior day.
We have another break in February. This break is from February 21-23. The schools will be closed, but the district offices will be open. We then have another day off on March 18.
Spring break for students and teachers is from April 15-22, 2021. The next break is early dismissal on May 26, 2021 and is the last day of school and the end of the fourth quarter.
The school calendar for the 2021-22 school year is out and consists of an earlier summer and more breaks throughout.
