When Is The Last Day Of School In Avon?

Avon Public Schools have six days to make up so far due to Hurricane Sandy, the January snow storm and the February blizzard.

Avon's last day of school has been pushed to June 27.

The district has to make up six days due to cancellations from Hurricane Sandy, a January snow storm and the recent February blizzard.

As is board policy, five of the make-up days will be tacked onto the end of the school year (June 21, 24-27) and one will be taken from April vacation on April 19, Superintendent Gary Mala wrote in a letter to the school community on Feb. 21. Any further snow days would come out of April vacaction, according to the letter.

"As you can see, we are slated to end this school year later than in past years," Mala wrote in the letter. "This is due to the combination of the language maintained in the Board of Education policy (prior to its recent revision) regarding the start of any school year, the 3 school closure days experienced in October and the manner in which we set the Winter and Spring Recesses on our school calendar." 

Administrators are seeking input on future school calendars in an electronic survey sent to parents Monday. The district is considering "available options to make the most efficient use of the required, instructional days in subsequent school year calendars,"  Mala said in his letter.

He discussed the school closure make-up days and survey at the school board's Tuesday meeting.
