2017-2018 School Calendar Change

We are happy to welcome you and your children back to school and the start of the 2017-18 school year. The first day of school for all students in grades K-12 will be August 17th. Prior to the start of school, and as soon as we possibly could, we want to make you aware of an adjustment to our 2017-18 school calendar.

On Monday, August 21 , 2017 we will experience a total solar eclipse, an event that hasn't occurred over the U.S .mainland since 1979.  Since the eclipse will be at its peak around the time of dismissal in the afternoon, we do not want to take the risk of having children watch it without proper eye protection on their way home from school whether they are walking, riding buses, or waiting to be picked up from school. While we could provide students with protective glasses, we would need permission slips to do so, and we cannot guarantee they will wear them after school.

Therefore, August 21, 2017 will now be an off day for students and a staff only work day (PLC Day).
