Heights School District Updates Calendar Again
School district is using one of its two final snow days, if they remain unused, to make the last day of the school June 20, the day of graduation.
The school calendar for the year has been updated once again to reflect the use of the two final snow days, if not used, so that the last day of school will be June 20, the same day as graduation.
Four snow days are built into the calendar each year. Two were already used to make up for days lost following Superstorm Sandy which kept the school shut for a full week due to an extended power outage.
Now the district plans to use the final two days on May 24, the Friday before Memorial Day and June 21, the day after graduation, Mark Porto, superintendent explained.
Originally the second snow day was planned for June 14, but June 21 made more sense so students do not have to return to calls the day after graduation, Porto explained.
A copy of the updated calendar was to be sent to parents. The updated calendar is also attached via PDF.
