School hours & Calendar

The 2020 -21 calendar was revised by the Board of Trustees. School hours have changed to allow for 10 additional minutes of instructional time.

The new calendar features intersession weeks, which consist of special days where students have the opportunity to participate in remediation, acceleration or enrichment activities, similar to summer school offerings in previous years.
