ROSEMOUNT, Minn. -- Students and staff will get one more day of winter break than originally planned under a revised school calendar for 2011-12 that was approved by the School Board April 25.
The board approved calendars for 2011-12 and 2012-13 last December. The district recently learned that state law prevents school districts from conducting school on the Monday following January 1 when January 1 falls on a Sunday, as it does in 2012. As a result, the board changed the calendar to include a winter break that runs from December 23, 2011 through January 2, 2012.
The board agreed to make up that day by extending the school year through Friday, June 8, 2012, instead of Thursday being the last day of school, as it was in the original calendar.
A copy of the revised calendar for 2011-12 is available on the district website, along with calendars for the current school year and 2012-13.
