The adoption of a school calendar is a difficult decision that cannot make everyone happy. The decision has to incorporate the needs for students and the needs of families. We surveyed our kids, through Google survey, and know that about 15% of our kids have projects or animals at the fair. A committee of 15 worked through several meetings to come up with the best decision possible for all parties. Labor Day is late (Sept 7, 2015) which made the decision more difficult. We knew that we needed to be closed during the fair; yet with state demands, we needed additional instructional days earlier. Our 2015 - 2016 calendar attempts to accomplish both while giving families time together at the holidays. The calendar is pretty consistent with most schools in our county.
