Sept. 4 – Labor Day
Nov. 10 – Veterans Day
Nov. 22 – adjusted dismissal for all staff and students
Nov. 23-24 – Thanksgiving
Dec. 20 – adjusted dismissal for all staff and students
Dec. 21, 2017 – Jan. 1, 2018 – Winter Break
Jan. 15 – Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Feb. 19 – Presidents Day
April 2-6 – Spring Break
May 28 – Memorial Day

Makeup days needed for inclement weather or other unscheduled school closures will be designated by the Superintendent with the preference being the use of staff days and holidays.
