We just learned from reading the PPS Pulse that the last day of school has changed. We want to make sure you are aware of this change.
Last day of school is now June 13, 2017
Due to inclement weather on December 8 and 9, the PPS Board of Directors voted at their December 13 board meeting to add two days to the end of the school year. The last day of school is now June 13, 2017. View a PDF of the 2016-17 calendar here. The impact of the snow days on December 15 and 16 will be reviewed in January.
As we move into October I wanted to make you aware of a calendar change for the month.
We are moving the book character spirit day from Wednesday, October 19th to Monday October 31st. We would love to see your creativity with a book character costume. Most characters are in book so it shouldn't be an issue. If you run into a situation where it causes drama, we will happily accept you in your chosen halloween costume. Please remember that this is a family friendly event. Avoid anything that will make our youngest friends cry. Also, do not include any weapons (knives, guns, swords…) with your costume. Teachers also ask that masks are not worn during the school day. You can put them on for the parade.
Tonight’s 8th Grade Family Night at Roosevelt has been cancelled. It will be rescheduled for Monday, February 13th at 5:30 PM. We apologize for any inconvenience this second cancellation may cause. MLC’s 8th Grade Family Night set for this evening at 6pm is happening as scheduled.
We continue to prepare for schools to reopen tomorrow, Wednesday, January 18, 2017.
Please note that our plan is for schools to start at regular times tomorrow making this the first day of eliminating late starts for professional development as part of our plan to restore lost instructional hours due to weather-related closures this winter.
This was a difficult decision. We know that school closures impact families in many ways, disrupting work schedules, childcare, in addition to classroom instruction for the nearly 49,000 students we serve.
