The school calendar is prepared annually and submitted to the Board for approval. A committee representing parents, all employee groups, and the administration worked together to develop the calendar.

For calendar events specific to your child's school, contact the school office.

For calendar events for athletics, fine arts or academic events, refer to the Our Events calendar on the District home page.
