Attached HERE is the proposed School Calendar for 2014-2015. We are seeking your feedback on this proposal. We would also like to know when you would like to start the new school year? Before Labor Day or after Labor Day?
Please keep in mind that if we start after Labor Day we will most likely end after Memorial Day the end of May or the 1st week in June. Another issue that can dictate our school calendar is the state wide vote that will be put the voters this November.
A couple other items that we need to keep in mind is that our school calendar has to consist of 175 student contact days, we can not be in session on New Years day, Good Friday Memorial Day, Labor Day, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving Day, or Christmas Day. We are required to have two Parent-Teacher conference days, Compensatory time for the parent-teacher conferences held outside regular school hours and two professional development days for a total of 182 days.
Please send your feedback via email to Superintendent Gaillord Peltier at Gaillord.Peltier@sendit.nodak.edu
