During it’s meeting on December 12, the Board of Education approved the 2017-2018 calendar for next school year, which is posted on the District website here.
- The first day of student attendance is August 21, 2017 (a half-day for students).
- Students do not attend on October 9 and 10. October 9 is Columbus Day. While students will not attend on October 10, that day will be an inservice day for staff.
- The last day before Winter Break is Friday, December 15. New Year’s Day, a legal holiday, falls on Monday, January 1, 2018, so students and staff will return from break on Tuesday, January 2, 2018.
- Assuming we do not use more than two emergency days, the last day of school will be June 8, 2018. Our calendar provides for that two days of “insurance” in the event of weather-related closings or other emergency days. If we must close more than two days, school could continue into the week of June 11.
You can view the District 113 (Deerfield High School) calendar to see that winter and spring breaks are completely aligned, and that District 109 schools start the same week as Deerfield High School (our students return two days earlier than DHS students).
