MANCHESTER, NH – The Board of School Committee approved the 2015-16 school year calendar on April 13. A few notes to mention:
- A day off will be added in January when the date of the NH Presidential Primary is determined.
- Like this year, Presidents’ Day will be a school day.
- Snow days will have to be made up.
- The official first day of school for kindergarten is on September 8.
Among the benefits, schools will be able to offer a kindergarten orientation prior to the first day, process new registrations, and take more time to thoughtfully create classroom assignments.
The district says its goal is to provide a smoother transition for the youngest students arriving at school for the first time.
More information will become available during the summer to tell families what they need to know about their school’s plan.
