Dear SCPS Families,
As a result of the Governor signing the bill into law allowing for school districts to begin the school year earlier, we are adopting the 2015-2016 school calendar with the August 17th start date.
To see the full calendar in its entirety, please visit our website: www.SCPS.us
We understand that our calendar change may create challenges for some of our families. Please be assured that our Principals will work closely with our parents to accommodate as much as reasonably possible any verifiable absences associated with this change.
Our student attendance policies do provide Principals with the authority to excuse absences for extraordinary circumstances. The Superintendent deems the district calendar change an extraordinary circumstance.
We greatly appreciate your time and understanding.
