2017-18 School Calendar
One additional note:
Built into next years calendar are 5 accelerated instructional days (they are highlighted in orange on the calendar). These will be at the end of each six weeks with the exception of the last six weeks. Students who have not met standard on the 2016-17 STAAR test, those who have an unsatisfactory classroom grade, those with excessive tardies and absences will be required to attend the accelerated instructional days as assigned by administration. Our goal is to provide additional instruction for students that can benefit from one on one in specific areas needed. These days will run from 8:30 am until 11:00 am on each of the 5 days. There will not be breakfast, lunch, or transportation provided. We will provide notification to each parent whose child will be required to attend.
