Letter from Dr. Wade About 2019-20 Calendar Changes


Originally, six early dismissal days were going to be added to the 2019-20 calendar to go along with the elimination of late-start Wednesdays.

However, the early dismissals have been removed from the calendar due to a recent change in the Illinois School Code. For more information about this, please see the letter below from Superintendent of Schools Dr. Nicolas Wade.
