Our school district will finalize the next school year's calendar in the middle of March. For example the 2018-2019 school calendar will be available March 15. It has all of the holidays, breaks and random teacher in service days marked so you know ahead of time when your child will not be in school. I find this helpful for planning vacations. trips to the dentist and well child checkups. Your new school might have the same thing on their website. We are switching to an online only model and the supply lists, student handbooks (contains absence policy) and other forms are not sent home.
