Valley View School District released a draft of the 2013-14 school year calendar recently and is looking for comments.
The new calendar features an earlier start to the school year (Aug. 16) so the district is able to end the first semester prior to Winter Break. The earlier start will mean an earlier finish as well (May 27) provided there are no snow days.
School holidays would include Labor Day (Sept. 2), Columbus Day (Oct. 14), Veterans Day (Nov. 11), Martin Luther King’s birthday (Jan. 20), Presidents’ Day (Feb. 17), Pulaski Day (March 3), Good Friday (April 18) and Memorial Day (May 26).
Thanksgiving break would be Nov. 27-29, Winter Break from Dec. 23 through Jan. 5 and Spring Break from April 7 to April 13.
Anyone wishing to comment on the draft may either submit the comment through “Ask the Superintendent” at www.vvsd.org or by calling Lisa Langer at 815-886-2700, Ext. 254.
