Calendar changes

The Board of Education was once again faced with the difficult task of amending the 2013-14 school calendar. House Bill 211 was signed into legislation Friday (March 28) afternoon. This legislation provided districts with different options for amending calendars due to the unusual amount of days lost due to weather.

The following dates were amended*
Spring Break (March 31-April 4): No School
Election Day (May 20): School will be in session
Memorial Day (May 26): No School for students or staff
Last Day for school for students: June 6th
Closing Day for Staff: June 12

*These are pending Governor Beshear's signature
