The first draft would be for a 175 day school year.

  • School start date would be Wednesday, August 19
  • Fall and spring breaks remain the same as the original pre-approved calendar, October 5-9 and March 15-19
  • Students will get 3 days for Thanksgiving
  • Christmas break would be December 21 – Jan 1 with students returning to class on Jan 4
  • May 27 would be the final day of classes

The second draft would be for a 180 day school year.

  • School start date would be Monday, August 17
  • Fall and spring breaks remain the same as the original pre-approved calendar, October 5-9 and March 15-19
  • Students would only get 2 days for Thanksgiving, just Thursday and Friday
