School Calendar Reminder

A calendar reminder that on December 9, 2015 the MSD of Washington Township School Board adopted a revised 2016-2017 District Calendar. The changes were adopted in order to more effectively contribute to election day, as many of our buildings are used as voting precincts, and adding four early student release days allows our teachers more professional development time. 

Below is a summary of the changes and at this link is the 2016-17 District Calendar . The calendar has not changed since it was approved on December 9. This is simply a reminder.

 November 8, 2016 – No Students Report:
Students will not attend school on Election Day which is November 8, 2016. Students will be assigned “at home learning” activities for November 8th. The “at home learning” lessons will not replace the traditional school day (and will not count toward the required 180 instructional days) as the lessons will involve time commitments far less than the length of a regular school day. The prepared lessons will include online activities as well as activities for students without home internet connectivity.

 Four Early Student Release Days Added:
All students (except 10th grade), district-wide will be released early on the following four dates:
September 22, 2016
November 3, 2016
February 2, 2017
March 23, 2017
*NCHS 10th grade students will have full school days on these dates. This time will be designated for work on 10th grade IB Personal Projects.

 

Early Release Times:
High School 1:30
Elementary 2:15
Middle School 3:00
