Because of the school closure on Feb. 27, 2020, due to poor road conditions caused by snow and ice, a make-up day will be added to the end of the school year. 

The last student day is now set for May 26, 2020. (May 25 is Memorial Day, so there will be no school that day.)

(This is the third closure of the year; the first coming on Nov. 19, 2019, for the Red for Public Ed rally, and the second on Feb. 6, 2020 due to weather and road conditions.)
