  • District Calendar Updates
    2020-21 Calendar Change – The Board approved the addition of three additional teacher professional development days for the 2020-21 school year. These dates are Monday, February 15, Monday, March 15 and Monday, May 17. We understand and are sensitive that when students are not in school this places a burden on parents. However, this change helps to ensure that our teachers are able to continue to provide high quality instruction to our students throughout the year.  As we have done during the first semester, time will be allocated for teachers to schedule virtual meetings with students who are struggling. At the secondary level, students will continue with asynchronous learning activities. The revised calendar can be accessed HERE.

    2021-22 Calendar- The Board also approved the 2021-22 school year calendar, which can be accessed HERE.
