At the Board of Education meeting today, Dr. Daniel D. Curry, Superintendent, announced that June 8, 2017 will be the last day of school for students. In the event of future school closures for inclement weather or other emergencies, the date of the last day of school will change accordingly.
He also announced that the last day of school for students at Patuxent Appeal Elementary Campus will be June 6. In March, the Board of Education approved a plan to shift grade levels and programs between the two buildings. Grades one through five and Title 1 will be housed in the primary building, the former Patuxent Elementary. Pre-K, kindergarten, the Judy Center and Head Start will be based in the intermediate building, the former Appeal Elementary. Dr. Karen Salmon, State Superintendent of Schools, gave her approval to shorten the student year by two days to provide time for the staff to prepare for the move. Over the summer, the School Facilities department will complete the necessary physical changes to the buildings to accommodate the new configuration of grades and programs.
