This past Tuesday, March 2nd was the District’s ninth (9th) emergency closing day. In this year’s school calendar, we had eight (8) available emergency closing days. Since we have exceeded the allowable number of emergency closing days, we are scheduling an additional instructional day on Friday, March 12th. This was originally scheduled as a Superintendent Conference Day and will now be a fully remote instructional day, like the remote Fridays that have been scheduled since we began the hybrid instruction model. Making this change to our calendar allows us to avoid scheduling an instructional day during our Spring Break.
