Updated School Calendar
The winter of 2015 has proven to be a challenge with the limited flexibility of the school calendar. The Mount Airy City Schools Board of Education voted on Tuesday to modify the existing school calendar in order to preserve Spring Break and provide school officials with some options in the event of additional inclement weather.
As a result the Board voted to forgive three student days. The impact of this vote on the school calendar is as follows:
May 25th, Memorial Day, becomes a regular school day
June 11th is the Last Day of School
June 12th is a Teacher Workday
The Board of Education recognizes the importance of Memorial Day so each campus will take time to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms on that day. In addition, this vote allowed the Board to maintain Good Friday as a holiday.
Mount Airy City Schools may use Saturday School if the district is faced with more bad weather in order to keep Spring Break intact. If another major weather event takes place, the district may have little choice but to use Spring Break for make-up purposes. Thank you for your understanding as we make the best out of a tough situation.
