Due to the recent school closures as a result of the snow emergency, the Staff Development Day scheduled for February 12, 2016 will be canceled. February 12th will be a regular school day for ALL students. As you are aware, we have used 3 scheduled school days for the emergency closing. As a result of opening on February 12th two days will be added to the end of the school year. Since we are just entering February, we must consider the possibility of inclement weather during the next few months which may necessitate additional school closings and the need to further extend the school year.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Superintendent of Schools
