The icy weather has been beyond any of our expectations this year and has greatly affected our instructional calendar. As a district we are obligated by law to meet a minimum of 1080 hours. In order to meet that accreditation standard we will have to adjust our calendar for the remainder of the school year. The following adjustments will allow us to meet our state obligations and finish school with no change in the final day or graduation date. New Instructional Days: March 7th and 31st, April 18th. Following Spring Break, 5 minutes will be added to the end of each school day.
