Last day of school reminder and changes to 2019-20 calendar

A Message from the Department of Communications and Community Relations

Dear staff, families and students,

We have a few calendar updates and reminders to share with you.

For this school year (2018-19): Just a reminder that the last day of school is an all schools early dismissal day on Thursday, June 20. Friday, June 14 is a regular, full day of school. We shared an update regarding these calendar revisions and new graduation dates in February. An updated June calendar is being sent to elementary families via backpack mail. You can refer to our calendar webpage for the most up-to-date calendar for this year, next year and key dates for 2020-21.

For next school year (2019-20): The first day of school is Wednesday, Aug. 28 for students in grades 1-12. Since February, we have made two revisions to next year’s calendar: 1) we have added a staff learning day (also referred to as a purple Friday) to Sept. 20, which means no school for students that day, and 2) the last day of the 2019-20 school year is now Thursday, June 11, 2020. Please keep in mind that the last day may change due to emergency closures or other circumstances. We do not recommend families or staff make plans the week of June 15, 2020.
