The Knox Community School Board members approved the 2014-2015 school calendar during their meeting this week.
Superintendent A.J. Gappa said the calendar is similar to this year’s except another contingency day has been added.
“The first student day would be Tuesday, August 12. The teachers will come in on Monday, August 11. Christmas vacation would be Monday, Dec. 22 and run through Monday, Jan. 5. Students would return for the second semester on Tuesday, Jan. 6. Because of this past winter, we added a contingency day. We have four built-in snow days – the fourth being President’s Day. This past year it was just a day off, but we will count it as a snow day next year in case it’s needed,” explained Gappa.
The last student day will be May 28, 2015 and graduation is Friday, June 5.
