Important Information Regarding the Last Day of School

Posted on May 19th, 2022

Due to the two inclement weather days that occurred in September, the district has to make up those two instructional days. These days were added to the end of the school year, changing the last official day of school to Tuesday, June 14, 2022. This allows the two make-up days to be Monday, June 13, 2022, and Tuesday, June 14, 2022.

The official last day for all students in Pre-K to 11th grade will be Tuesday, June 14, 2022. All students in Pre-K will be dismissed at 11:30 AM. All students in kindergarten through 11th grade will be dismissed at 12:00 PM. No breakfast or lunch will be served on Tuesday, June 14, 2022. Thank you.

___________________________________________________

Debido a las inclemencias del tiempo que ocurrieron en septiembre, el distrito debe compensar dos días de instrucción. Esos días se añadieron al final del año escolar, cambiando así la fecha oficial del fin de año escolar a martes, 14 de junio. Esto permite que los dos días compensados sean, el lunes, 13 de junio del 2022, y el martes 14 de junio del 2022.

El ultimo día oficial para los estudiantes de Pre-K a 11mo grado será el martes, 14 de junio del 2022. Todos los estudiantes en Pre-K saldrán a las 11:30 AM. Todos los estudiantes de Kínder a 11mo grado saldrán a la 12:00 PM. No se servirá ni desayuno ni almuerzo el 14 de junio del 2022. Gracias.
