• District & Schools Open on Friday, April 25, 2014

    Reminder:  Schools will reopen on Friday, April 25, 2014.  This is a make-up day, since the District used 4 emergency closing days, rather than the 3 days provided for in the 2013-2014 School Year Calendar amended by the Board of Education on September 16, 2013.
