The Start of School

I have just met with the contractor this morning and we believe that it is best to move the first day of school for students to August 13th. The Safety of our students has to be priority one, and we want to make sure the building is 100% safe.

Momentum Construction has done a fantastic job and they have been great to work with. The major reason for the change has been a delay in the start of the project resulting in the late arrival of construction materials and the weather.

This will change the schedule for the start of the school year, so here are the dates:

  • August 6th - Opening Day will remain the same.
  • August 7th - Staff Workday at your school site.
  • August 10th - Staff Workday at your school site.
  • August 13th - First Day for Students (K-12)
  • August 20th - First Day for Pre-School Students

This may have an impact the remainder of this years’ school calendar. No one wants to go to school in the month of June and with the early forecast of a bad winter, we may need to make some revisions.

Thank you for your understanding.
