Draft 2016-17 School Calendar
The School Committee reviewed three choices for a school calendar for 2016-17. Due to the need to provide as much time as possible for the roof construction at the high school, a version that allows for a school start date after Labor Day was chosen to share with the community. The School Committee will review feedback about this calendar at the February School Committee meeting on February 9, 2016. At that time, a final version will be voted upon. Please provide feedback by contacting any member of the School Committee. To view this calendar, click here.
