    The 2017-2018 school year calendar includes eight (8) Fridays that will now be half-days/early dismissals.  The half-days will provide additional time for schools and district-level training and support our goal of creating a student-centered culture built on continuous improvement.

    While our teachers and school-based staff will be busy learning and collaborating on these additional half-days, families are encouraged to use these days to schedule doctor appointments or plan college visits.  We have been working with with after-school providers and our local cultural institutions and partners to learn how they can be of services to families.  Below is a listing of programs and services that can support students and families on these days. Families can also find programming using the APOST Program Finder.
