Dear Colleagues and Parents,

Last week I sent out a note indicating that we were considering extending the school day in order to save the vacation day. I asked for your input and many of you took the time to share your thoughts with me. A significant number of individuals indicated that an extended day would be a hardship. I also learned that there would be a significant number of students out of town the week of March 30th.

With this in mind, we are going to drop the extended day proposal and do the following:

  • The entire vacation week of March 30th will remain.
  • There will be a full week of school beginning April 27th with no Superintendent’s Conference Day on April 30th. The conference day will be moved to June 26th.

I trust that you will all find this a good choice. I appreciate the Board’s willingness to explore possibilities, enabling us to move forward in the best interest of our students.

 Thank you for your ongoing support.
