Message from Dr Newcome:
After review of input from staff and parents, and after assuring that we will be able to successfully manage the logistics of moving the testing dates, it has been determined that the testing window will be moved. This move is being made in conjunction with recommendations that will be going to the Board of Directors on Monday night for consideration and approval. However, the moving of the testing is solid and will happen no matter what the Board of Directors chooses to do with the calendar.
Therefore, the testing window will be moved to Monday, March 31 through Monday, April 7.
March 17 – March 20 will be full days for students and staff. We will keep evening conference during the week as scheduled:
March 19 – Grades 7-12 Evening Conferences
March 20 – Grades K-6 Evening Conferences
There will be no afternoon conferences.
March 21 will be a half day for students and staff.
Monday, March 31, Tuesday, April 1, Wednesday, April 2, and Thursday April 3 will be half days for students in grades K-6. Teachers in grades K- 6 will have in-service time during the second half of these days.
Monday, March 31, Tuesday, April 1, Wednesday, April 2, and Thursday April 3 will be full days for students in grades 7-12. Grades 7-8 will have testing and grades 9-12 will run their regular schedule.
Friday, April 4 is a full day for students K-12.
Friday, March 28 is a full day for students K-12.
