Impact to Calendar from Hurricane Matthew:

- October 14, 2016—No School for Students (Holiday for all employees). Makeup day December 20 as an Early Release Day.
* December 16 becomes a Full Day so December 20 can be an Early Release Day
These changes allow for the two semesters at the two high schools to contain a similar number of instructional days to keep pacing aligned and to prepare for exams.
Additionally, the above changes hold three optional workdays in second semester to be used as makeup days if needed for inclement weather rather than immediately using Spring Break for makeup days.
With the above changes we continue with 1061 instructional hours for the 2016-2017 school year which is well in excess of the required 1025 hours of instruction mandated by state law.
