January 2024

  • School Calendars Presented - The District Administration creates school calendars two years in advance to assist families with planning. Calendars for the 2024-2025 and 2025-2026 school years were presented for Board review at the January meeting. The 2024-2025 school calendar includes revisions adjusting early release and institute day dates in October and November of 2024. Both calendars will be brought to the February meeting for Board approval. Dr. Kotalik also noted that the current 2023-2024 school calendar will be presented once the risk of winter weather has passed. If no more emergency days are used, the last day of school this year will be on May 29th.
