The Knox Community School Board approved the 2013-2014 school calendar during their recent meeting. Superintendent A.J. Gappa said it is similar to this year’s calendar.
“Teachers will return Aug. 12 and students will return on Aug. 13 which is a Tuesday,” explained Gappa. “The last day of school, if everything goes according to plan, would be May 29 with the records day on May 30. Commencement would be Friday, June 6, 2014. There would be two weeks off at Christmastime and three days off for Thanksgiving break. Good Friday next year will fall on April 18 so that is not part of spring break. We also have three contingency days built into the calendar for snow days.”
He wants to remind students and staff that there will be school on April 1.
“This year we had one snow day that we used two weeks ago and our first contingency day is April 1. It’s the day after spring break so we will have school on Monday, April 1,” Gappa explained.
