SMP School Calendar Revisions

Posted by District on 7/24/2020 8:00:00 AM

From Dr. Bagwell:

The St. Mary Parish School Board approved an adjustment to the school calendar for 2020-2021 to incorporate a graduated start for students beginning on August 10. These changes were proposed and approved by the board in an effort to allow schools additional time for training and preparation as we adjust to the many changes associated with reopening.  

Students will now return on August 10 and will be divided into two groups, with one group attending school on Monday/Wednesday and the second group on Tuesday/Thursday. This will allow all schools time to introduce and practice routines and procedures new to a school’s daily schedule with small groups before we reopen under the Phase 2 guidelines on Monday, August 17.

Further, two additional professional development days on Friday. August 7. and Friday, August 14will offer teachers and administrators time to prepare for and assess needed adjustments. It is hoped that these minor calendar revisions will help initiate a positive and efficient start to an unprecedented school year.

The 180-Day School Calendar can always be found under Parents/Students | Basic Information | Calendar  or Employees | Calendars on this website.
