2018-2019 School Year

On Wednesday, 1/24, the Chicago Board of Education approved the calendar for the 2018-2019 School Year, which will go a long way toward supporting our students, and you - the dedicated team who work so hard to help them succeed. This calendar contains a wealth of information. You’ll see that our student attendance days – 178 – are evenly distributed across four academic quarters, and that we’ve allocated two days for parent-teacher conferences. Here are some of the important dates for the next school year: First Day of School - 9/4/18, Last Day of School - 6/18/19 Academic Quarters - Q1 - 11/1/18, Q2 - 1/31/19, Q3 - 4/4/19, Q4 - 6/18/19 Parent Teacher Conference Days - 11/14/18 (ES), 11/15/18 (HS), 4/10/19 (ES), 4/11/19 (HS) Winter Vacation - 12/24/18 - 1/4/19, Spring Vacation - 4/15/18 - 4/19/18 School Improvement Days - 11/2/18, 2/1/19, 4/5/19, 6/19/19 Please note: Veterans Day will be observed on Monday, 11/12/18.
