Students will report to class Aug. 27 next year and start their summer vacation June 15, 2021.
There will be an eight-day winter break, slightly shorter than this year. Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, was added as a holiday. See the full calendar here.
The School Board adopted next year’s calendar at its Oct. 22 meeting.
Some board members said they heard from parents supporting an earlier start date, Aug. 20. But Debbie Rose (Algonkian) said that was too early and led the push for the later start.
“No calendar is perfect. It will inevitably make a lot of people angry and a lot of people happy,” she said.
