Early Release Days


Kindergarten through Grade 5

Wednesday Early Release Dates

On Wednesdays, K-5 elementary students are released early to provide staff with professional learning opportunities.

For the 2021-2022 school year, elementary (K-5) half day Wednesdays will take place for the entire school year.

The Board of Education voted on this change on October 4, 2021. It will provide teachers with more time to collaborate and strategize to address acute academic needs and pressing mental wellness concerns of our students.
