Change to District Calendar (Professional Development)

February 27, 2024, will be a district-wide professional development day. As a result, there will be no school for students on that day. However, staff members are required to report for professional development activities.

It's important to note that this professional development day will replace the originally scheduled PD day on April 17, 2024. Therefore, students and staff are now expected to report to school on April 17, 2024.

This adjustment in the calendar is necessary due to the state moving the primary election date from August to February and the number of polling sites located in our district.

We understand that changes to the calendar can impact schedules and plans, and we appreciate your flexibility and understanding as we navigate these adjustments. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns regarding this change.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
