Monday, Jan. 30th – Friday, Feb. 3rd: Regular schedule all week
Graduation Dates Will Be Set in April
When we start to receive multiple questions here in the office on the same topic, we like to provide the information here so everyone gets the answer. This week, the question was “What are the Graduation Dates for this year?” The answer is – ‘we don’t know yet.’ Each year, the Board of Education officially sets the Graduation Date Schedule at their April Board of Education Meeting. The reason for this is because, by April, snow days are pretty much behind us and we can more confidently predict when the last day of school will be. So … stay tuned! As soon as the dates are set, we’ll share them with you!
