Just a friendly reminder that Friday, May 27th, a day initially on the 2015-16 school calendar as a weather make-up day, is a regular school day. Schools in Deer Park were closed for two days due to the severe windstorm in mid-November 2015. We are using the weather day built into our school calendar (Friday, May 27th) to make-up one of the days missed and we have received a waiver from the State for the other day.
In the absence of any waivers approved by the State Board of Education or the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, schools in Washington must offer a minimum of 180 school days each year. This year, our weather-day will be used as one of our 180 required days. Programs at all schools and all transportation services will run on a normal schedule.
