That was some winter, huh? Gosh it’s good to see the sun shine and the flowers blooming and the grass turning green. We missed about 9 days of school altogether, plus we had 3 delays and one early dismissal. Since 4 of the days were under a “state of emergency” we will not be required to make them up. We also bank a little extra time each day, so we don’t need to make up every lost day.
So, we’re going to make up two snow days. Students will now go to school all day on June 10, 11 and 14. Monday the 14th will be the last day for kids. Tuesday June 15th will be the last day for teachers. Report cards will be mailed.
Summer school will be scaled back again. All summer school classes – elementary, middle and high school - will be held at Central Elementary. High school summer school will be drastically scaled back. Only seniors will get a chance to recover failed core classes.
Many call and ask when school will start next year. The answer is very late. We have some major remodeling projects planned for Lake Forest High School and W.T.Chipman. To maximize the summer construction period, we will not begin school for students until Tuesday, September 7 – following Labor Day.
