Our Board approved an amended version of our school calendar. To help us with possible closures due to COVID-19, we added 12 bad weather/flex days to the end of our school year. Please understand that we will only use these days in the event we need to close and cannot offer a virtual learning option. There may be times when we have to close our district for one or two days for cleaning and sanitizing, and if so, we may have to use BW days. But if we do not, those days will not be necessary, and our last day of school will be May 20, 2021, as was originally approved in April.
