Updated School Calendar

March 20, 2023


Dear Parent & Guardians,


Today may be Spring Equinox 2023 but we are still feeling the effects of winter as we look at the 5 days of school missed due to inclement weather.  In order to hold the graduation ceremony on June 2, 2023 and remain in compliance with state law (seniors can graduate with no more than 5 days difference to the full school year) the MSAD 24 Board of School Directors approved some changes to the 2023-24 school year.  These specific changes are:


·       March 23, 2023 will be a half day of school for students.  Students will be dismissed at 12:00

·       PK-11 students last day of school will be June 9 (pending we don’t have any more snow days this school year)


The 2022-23 school calendar on the MSAD 24 website has been adjusted to reflect the changes above.  Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have.
