DISTRICT CALENDAR UPDATE
At the March 10, 2014 Board of Education Meeting, the Kellyville School Board voted to close school on Monday, March 31 to allow teachers to participate in Oklahoma Education Coalition Rally at the Capitol in Oklahoma City. Considering the number of issues that Oklahoma public schools continue to face (school funding, teacher shortages, etc.), it is crucial that there be a strong presence at the Capitol on that day.
In order to compensate for the instructional time missed on that day, the board also approved adding 20 minutes to each school day between March 24 and April 18 (19 days). Start times for all school sites will remain unchanged.
The school day for Elementary and Upper Elementary students will end at 3:15 (instead of 2:55) and the school day for Middle School and High School students will end at 3:25 (instead of 3:05) during the time frame of March 24 through April 18.
Beginning Monday, April 21, all school sites will revert back to regular start and end times. The school days affected by these additional minutes are critical days of instruction as Kellyville students prepare for state assessments in April and May.
The school calendar now reflects the last day for student attendance to be Wednesday, May 21. Graduation exercises are scheduled for Friday, May 23. Further adjustments could be made to the school calendar should additional school days be missed due to inclement weather.
