The general rule of thumb for the determination of the opening school day for students at the beginning of the school year is based on which day in September is Labor Day. If Labor Day falls on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th of September, school will open the day after Labor Day. If Labor Day falls on the 5th, 6th, or 7thday of September, the first day of school will be designated in the week before Labor Day. NOTE: Five (5) snow days have been added to the end of the calendar. Those days not used will be deducted from the end of the school year. Additional snow days,beyond the five (5) days added to the end of the calendar, shall be added by using a maximum of (4) days during the Spring Break. Additional days past these nine (9) days will be added to the calendar upon the recommendation of the Superintendent and the approval of the Board.
