Alternative Calendar
Should additional hours of instruction be required, an Alternate School Calendar is also put into place. For the 2019-20 school year, the proposed makeup days are as follows:

Calamity Days:
  • 1st-5th Days: Week of June 8, 2020
  • 6th-10th Days: Week of June 15, 2020
  • 11th-15th Days: Week of April 13, 2020
  • 16th-20th Days: Week of June 22, 2020

This additional instruction time provides students a sufficient number of lessons for each course taught by the teacher with such lessons requiring, in the judgment of the teachers, an amount of time equal to or greater than the amount of instructional time the student would receive for three (3) school days in the teacher's classroom. These lesson plans are developed by the Teaching and Learning Department in collaboration with classroom teachers. Teachers designate the order in which the lessons are to be posted on the district's Web portal or website. Students shall be granted a two-week period from the date of the lesson plan posting to complete their work. Students not having access to online instructions will be able to complete the posted lessons at school after the reopening of school. Use of "Blizzard Bags," which are paper copies of online posted lessons, may also occur.
