First days of school announced for 2017-18

Posted on March 24, 2017


Similar to this year, there are three start dates for the 2017-18 school year: 


Friday, Aug. 25: New high school students
All brand new students (9th graders + new high schoolers in any grade) begin school early. This special first day will be full of information and activities designed to acquaint new students with the school and each other. 


Monday, Aug. 28: Grades 1-8 and 10-12

    • Returning students in 10th-12th grades
    • All students in 1st-8th grades (new and returning)


Tuesday, Sept. 5: Preschool and kindergarten students


The calendaring process can be quite complex, as it requires a variety of calculations and agreement between district administration and the teachers association. While it was not our intention to announce these dates so late in the year, the need to address this year’s lost snow days preempted discussions about the following school year’s calendar. 

Final calendar conversations are continuing and the district will do its best to release the full 2017-18 academic year calendar as quickly as possible. 

Additionally, our team is in the process of developing the 2018-19 academic year calendar so we can announce it much earlier. 

Thank you for your patience.
