Recently, there were two changes to the school calendar for the remainder of this year that were approved by the Billerica School Committee. The changes are as follows:
1. The early release scheduled for all schools that was originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 25 has now been changed to Thursday, April 13. This new date occurs on the Thursday before April vacation, and as a reminder, there is no school on Friday, April 14 for all students. This change was made to accommodate the testing schedule released by the state for MCAS.
2. On Monday, December 12, there was an early release scheduled for elementary school students only that had to be postponed due to a two-hour weather delay. By policy, this date must be made up before the end of the year. As a result, the new date for an early release for elementary schools only is on the 179th day of the school year, currently scheduled for Thursday, June 15. Please be aware in the event we need to cancel school and the year is extended, this early release will be moved accordingly.
I thank you for your cooperation and understanding regarding these calendar changes, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
