School Calendar Changes

The winter weather has been rough on the Wawasee Community School Corporation calendar. Five days have been missed (as of January 29) due to inclement weather. Only four weather days were built into the 2007-08 calendar. After discussion and study, the following changes will be made to the school calendar:

  • Move the end of the second trimester from Friday, February 22 to Wednesday, February 27.
  • Move the No School: Teacher Day from Monday, February 25 to Thursday, February 28.
  • Begin the third trimester on Friday, February 29.
  • Use Good Friday, March 21 as a school day, but with an early student release for staff development. Good Friday was previously a no school day.

Moving days at the end of the second trimester allows each trimester to maintain the same number of instructional days. Going to school until 12:30 p.m. (12:45 p.m. at WMS) on Good Friday will help to save graduation on its May 30 date. A copy of the revised calendar will be on the corporation website tomorrow.

We will be sensitive to both individual and family needs concerning attendance on Good Friday for students and staff members.

Please feel free to contact me at the WCSC Central Office if you should have any questions about the above mentioned calendar changes.

Thank you for your cooperation as we work together for the best interests of the Wawasee Community School Corporation children and community.
