Early Dismissal for Elementary and Middle Schools Dec. 7, and No School for All Students Dec. 8

Bellingham Public Schools will be on an early dismissal schedule for elementary and middle schools on Thursday, Dec. 7.

Middle schools dismiss at 12 p.m.

Elementary schools dismiss at 12:45 p.m. Please note that for some elementary students, there may be a transportation delay on the Thursdays during the year when middle schools are also on the early dismissal schedule. Our staff will supervise students until buses arrive.

Friday, Dec. 8 is a no school day for all students. This year’s calendar maintains 180 school days (the same as last school year) while inserting a staff learning day each month. Many of these Fridays are workdays for staff to communicate regularly with parents, to hold elementary and middle school conferences and attend professional development. All school offices are closed to the public on staff learning days.

Our school calendar can be viewed on the school calendars webpage. You can read more about our 2017-18 early dismissal schedule here.
