2020-2021 Calendar Changes
Due to the ability to use Alternative Methods of Instruction on inclement weather days and COVID-19 concerns, the board unanimously approved changes to the 2020-2021 calendar. This calendar takes the eight Mondays which were designated as inclement weather make-up days and changed them into school days. The first six inclement weather days will be Alternative Methods of Instruction days (AMI) and do not need to be made up. Winter Break (Christmas Break) is extended until January 8th (workday for staff) and January 11th (attendance day for students). This extended break allows two weeks for isolation following Christmas to lessen the possible spread of COVID -19 from holiday gatherings. Easter break added the Monday after Easter is a non-attendance day for students. Three inclement weather days were placed before Spring Break. If those days are not used Spring Break could begin three days earlier. Any additional days needed for inclement weather make-up will be added at the end of the school year. The calendar is attached. We plan to remain on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday with in person instruction with Wednesdays being AMI-X/Virtual for the beginning of second semester.
