Home 5 2019-2020 School Calendar

The 2019-2020 School Calendar has been approved by the School Committee. 

Key information about the 2019-2020 School Year calendar:

School will start on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 for students in grades 1-12 and will be a half-day.  Preschool and Kindergarten start on Tuesday, September 3, 2019.

There will be no school on the day before Thanksgiving.

Winter break will begin at the end of the regular school day on Friday, December 20, 2019.  School will reopen on Thursday, January 2, 2020.

The projected last day of school, including five snow days, is June 22, 2020.  One weekday is deducted for each snow day not used, with the earliest possible last day of school being June 15, 2020.

Please note that schools are required to provide 180 days of instruction.  While the five snow days built into the calendar are typically adequate to cover closures, any days schools must be closed beyond that must be made-up per Massachusetts Department of Education regulations.  Whenever possible, such days are added to the end of the school year.
