MARK YOUR CALENDAR: Closure pushes last student day back to May 26

Posted on Mar. 03 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Due to the cancellation of classes on March 3 because of ice, the last day for students will now be on Tuesday, May 26. Please make a note on your calendars!

(Monday, May 25, is Memorial Day, so there will be no classes that day.)

This is the fifth make-up day added to the year due to weather-related closures. Any more cancellations will result in more days being added to the end of the school year. We will continue to advise families if more make-up days are needed.
