Draft calendar

School proposed to start before Labor Day for 2015-2016 year – UPDATED 4/9/15

KCSD families – be sure to check the draft calendar presented at the board of education meeting last week.  When I looked the first time, I missed the fact that Labor Day isn’t until September 7, 2015 so school is actually scheduled to start BEFORE Labor Day.

UPDATE 4/9/15 – School will start AFTER Labor Day in September 2015.  Read here.

If you have concerns about this draft schedule for next school year, be sure to contact a board of education member BEFORE the next board meeting (April 8, 2015) when the calendar will be voted on.

The Daily Freeman reported on the draft calendar discussion from the March 25 board meeting here.

“I would just like to make sure the public is aware that, with the proposed calendar, school starts before Labor Day and I don’t think that’s ever happened before,” Trustee James Shaughnessy said. “If families are thinking about vacation, don’t plan a vacation the week before Labor Day because there will be school.”

The draft calendar is posted on the KCSD website in an article here.
