Makeup days from cold weather closings scheduled

Due to snow and extremely cold weather, school was closed January 28-31. When the district creates its calendar each year, we build in days to account for weather-related closings. Because there were more weather-related closings than anticipated, we need to add two additional days to our school year:

  • Friday, February 8, 2019. This day was originally planned for teacher professional development.
  • Friday, June 7, 2019. The last day of school was originally scheduled for June 6, however, we are extending the school year by one day.

The commencement ceremony for graduating seniors will remain on Thursday, June 6, 2019. Teacher grading day will be moved to Monday, June 10, 2019 and summer school will begin on Monday, June 17, 2019. Bright Start child care will be open both of these days.

The decision to close school is complex with many factors to consider. We try to stay open whenever possible so we do not interrupt learning while also balancing the importance of student safety. We make the decision to close school when student safety becomes a concern.
