Proposed 2021-2022 Calendar
At the January 12, 2021, meeting of the Board of School Directors, District administration presented a PROPOSED 2021-2022 school calendar. In the proposal, the first week of school for students in grades 1-12 would be August 23 - August 27 (the traditional week for the Elizabethtown Fair). The first day of school for kindergarten would be Monday, August 30. The District is proposing early dismissals the entire first week of school to support student transitions to new schools and to avoid transportation conflicts with the Elizabethtown Fair. The last day of school for ALL students would be Thursday, May 26, 2022.
While the District finds this calendar to have benefits to our instructional program, we also know start and end dates impact our families. Given the significant shift in the start date, the District is surveying the community for input and feedback on our proposed calendar. The District will take into consideration the community feedback as it finalizes the calendar for Board approval at its February 23, 2021, meeting.
For comparison purposes, under the District's traditional calendar (start school the Monday before Labor Day), the first week of school would be August 30 - September 2. The last day of school would likely be Monday, June 6, 2022.
All responses are ANONYMOUS, and the survey will take less than five minutes to complete. Please know that your input is greatly valued and appreciated! We thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts, ideas, and feedback.
