Updated 2018/2019 School Calendar [2/12/2019]

Due to the number of winter make up days so far this year, the FMCSD is altering the current school calendar. Based on current winter cancellations, adding the days to the end of the calendar will have students in attendance through Monday, June 10, 2019.

Because of the lack of air conditioning in both of our elementary buildings, we are attempting to minimize student instructional days into June.

As a result, the following changes are being implemented. While changing schedules is never  convenient for everyone, our goal remains to make decisions to keep our students safe.

School will now be in session Monday, February 18, Wednesday, March 27, April 1 and April 22, 2019.

The early out Wednesday Professional Development times will be cancelled to gain 2 full days of instructional hours back. The final Wednesday early out PD will be February 27th.

Students final day of attendance will be a full day on May 31, 2019.
This is subject to change if we have continued cancellations.

If we are presented with additional weather challenges, we will communicate with you what that looks like going forward.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to navigate this weather.
