Reminders:

Spring "Fun Run" are scheduled at Eagle and Hamlow Elementary schools. 

No School on April 18 or 21.

Last Day of School

Tuesday, May 20 will be the last day of school for students. Students will be dismissed prior to noon on the last day. Each school building will provide details to parents regarding specific dismissal times. Despite missing two "snow days" this year, it has been determined that sufficient educational hours were built into the calendar, which results in no make-up days for students.
