Calendar 2015-16

On March 19, 2015, the Board of School Directors adopted a school calendar for the 2015-16 school year.  The link below will take you to the calendar; however, I will highlight some aspects of the calendar as you will see below:

  • August 26 – First Day of School for Students
  • September 4 & 7 – School Closed
  • November 26, 27, 30 – Thanksgiving Recess
  • December 24 through January 1 – Winter Recess
  • March 24 through April 1  – Spring Recess
  • June 3 – Graduation

Due to the number of weather related incidents that have occurred over the past two years, we have lengthened the Spring Recess but they may be used for snow make-up days.  Graduation, which is set at June 3, 2016, will not be moved.  Please reference the second page of the calendar for the various schedules of snow make-up days.
