Adjustment to 2021-2022 calendar

October 22, 2021

Topic: Updates

At its October meeting, the Board of Education adjusted the first possible last day of school to Thursday, May 26, 2022.

This change was made because Tuesday, March 15, 2022, was previously a non-student attendance day because of Election Day. Election Day has been changed statewide to fall in June 2022. Therefore, Tuesday, March 15, will now be a student attendance day. The first possible last day of school is moved up to Thursday, May 26, from Friday, May 27, accordingly.

A revised 2021-2022 school year calendar is available here.
