Calendar Notes:

Inclement weather and emergency school closings: This calendar has four days built in at the end of the school year for emergency closings, making the school year 184 student days and 195 teacher days. Any of the four emergency days not used shall be deducted from the June closing date. Additional emergency closings shall be made up as follows:

Additional emergency closing days will be made up by adding days to the June closing date.

If emergency closings fall on January testing days or the teacher workdays, secondary schools will reschedule so that there are four consecutive testing days followed by two teacher workdays. This scheduling affects all schools.

Religious Observances: Tests and examinations will not be scheduled on the day of a major religious observance, including Rosh Hashanah - Sept. 22 and 23; Yom Kippur - Oct. 2; Lunar New Year - Feb. 18; Passover - April 3 and 4. Tests and examinations for evening high school will not be scheduled on the day a religious observance begins.

Semester tests and examinations: Extracurricular activities, practices, and club activities shall be scheduled at the end of the regular school day for not more then 90 minutes on the evening prior to the day of semester tests and examinations for high schools.
