SCHOOL SYSTEM CALENDAR CHANGES
LEONARDTOWN, MD - On April 13, 2016, the Board of Education revised the 2015-2016 school system operating calendars. The school year will be shortened by one day since one of the inclement weather days built into the calendar was not used. April 29, 2016 will now be an early dismissal day to prevent the need for schools to close on a Monday.
Schools will now be open on Friday, April 29, 2016 with a two hour early dismissal. There will be no school for Head Start and PreKindergarten on April 29, 2016.
Tuesday, June 7, 2016 will be a regular day of school with all Head Start and Prekindergarten students attending school on a normal schedule. June 7, 2016 will be the last day of school for Head Start and Prekindergarten students.
Wednesday, June 8, 2016 will be a two hour early dismissal day with no school for Head Start and PreKindergarten students.
Thursday, June 9, 2016 will be a two hour early dismissal day with no school for Head Start and Prekindergarten students.
Friday, June 10, 2016 will be a two hour early dismissal day and last day of school for students K-12.
Tuesday, June 14, 2016 will be the last day for teachers and other 10 month staff.
Friday, April 29, 2016 will be an early dismissal day for the Chesapeake Public Charter School. The last day of school for the Charter School will be Friday, June 10, 2016. June 8, 9, and 10 will be early dismissal days for students attending the Charter School. June 14, 2016 will be the last day for the teachers at the Charter School.
Esperanza Families: The PARCC will be administered to sixth, seventh and eighth graders in April and May. Please see the school calendar for dates and times. Information about the Maryland PARCC can be found in the letter from our Superintendent.
Speak Up, an online research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow®, gives education stakeholders the opportunity to share their viewpoints about key educational issues, particularly concerning digital learning and the use of technology to support future ready schools. Each year, findings are summarized and shared with national and state policy makers. Participating schools and districts can access their local data online, free-of-charge in February 2016. Please take a few minutes and complete the survey. Thank you.
