Early dismissal

Students will be dismissed early on Tuesday, April 19, in order for teachers to attend staff development workshops. This is one of 12 days set aside in the school calendar for student early dismissal.

Additional minutes have been added to the school day to make up the time missed on the 12 early dismissal days. Students will still receive the same number of instructional hours.

Dismissal times will range from 12:15 to 1:35 p.m. Questions regarding specific dismissal times for each school should be directed to the individual child's school.

April 29 is a teacher workday. There will be no school for students.
