From Dr. Hite:

In an effort to provide for consistent and uninterrupted student learning opportunities, while recognizing important religious holidays and the unprecedented visit of the Pope and the World Meeting of Families, the School District is proposing adjustments to the 2015-2016 school year calendar.  The following changes will be proposed in a resolution to the SRC on August 20:

1. The first day of Kindergarten will be Thursday, September 17.  The original first day of Kindergarten, September 16, will be an additional Kindergarten Parent/Teacher Interview day.

2. Schools and administrative offices will be closed on Thursday, September 24.  Due to previously scheduled closures, schools and administrative offices will now be closed from Wednesday, September 23rd through Friday, September 25.

3. Friday, October 9, will be a regular school day to make up for the loss of the school day on September 24.  This date was originally scheduled as a professional development day.

4. The first 3 days of spring break (Monday, March 21; Tuesday, March 22; and Wednesday, March 23) will be used first as inclement weather make-up days if necessary.

Upon approval from the SRC, the changes will be made to the School District’s official calendar.  In the meantime, please update any public information and postings to include these revisions, noting that they are pending SRC approval.
