Click to download the 2016-2017 School Calendar. The attached calendar reflects the following change voted by School Committee on April 11, 2016.
2016-17 Calendar Change.
The School Committee voted to amend the 2016-17 School Calendar making Friday, April 14, 2017 a non-school day; the earliest 180th day of school becomes Friday, June 16, 2017.
Thanks to those parents and staff who responded to our query about this change. Although not a vote, 62% of the responding parents and 94% of responding staff favored the change. It is important to note, this change is for 2016-17 only and does not represent a policy position by the School Committee. The school calendar is adopted annually in November for the following school year.
Of note, a number of responding parents and staff indicated a desire for the district to review the status of all low attendance days in future calendars, and to consider ways for the school year to end earlier in the month of June. All concerns and comments received were summarized and shared with the School Committee.
