The last day of the 2012-13 school year is Thursday, June 13, which is a half-day of school for students. On June 13, elementary schools will release students at 11:55 a.m. (parents, please be prepared to pick your students up at the bus stop); middle schools and David Douglas High School will release at 10:30 a.m.; Fir Ridge Campus will release at 10:40 a.m.
Because of bond construction projects (thank you, voters!), two schools will get out earlier. The last day of the school year for students at Menlo Park Elementary and Ventura Park Elementary is Tuesday, June 11, which is a full day of school. Both schools, along with the North Powellhurst building, will be closed to the public this summer while construction goes on.
Please mark your calendars now for a change to the school start date for the fall. The 2013-14 school year begins on Monday, Sept. 9, one week later than normal. That’s right. Summer break will be one week longer this year.
