March 14th, 2022 by Jessica Bennett

 A slight change has been made to this year’s school calendar to accommodate a conflict that has arisen in June. We wanted to inform families of this change as soon as possible so that they had plenty of time to make any necessary adjustments to personal schedules and calendars.

The change is as follows:  

  • Wednesday, June 1st will now be an early release day for students.  We will follow a typical early release schedule for all students and staff on that day.
  • Wednesday, June 8th will be a regular school day for students and an extended school day for teachers.
