The School Board took action at its meeting on Monday, March 10 to add one instructional day to the current school year.  This addition is a response (one day only) to the two district-wide school closure days earlier this year due to snow and ice -- February 7 and February 10.  As a result of Board action, the last day of school for students is now Friday, June 13.  The last contract day for teachers is Monday, June 16.

Attached are the revised 2013-2014 School Calendars.
