Back To School: Calendar Notes & More
● By Anonymous
The start of the 2013-14 school year is a little different this year in Midland Park. Instead of starting on Thursday, classes will begin on Friday, Sept. 6. The Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah falls on Thursday, Sept. 5 this year and most school districts in the state are closed. While the Board of Education agrees a Friday first day is not ideal, delaying the start until Monday, Sept. 9 would not be practical.
The last day of school is set for Tuesday, June 24, with graduation on Friday, June 20.
School will be closed on Nov. 7-8 for teacher's convention, Nov. 28-29 for Thanksgiving, Dec. 24 to Jan. 1 for winter recess, Jan. 20 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Feb. 17 to 21 for President's Week recess, April 14-17 for spring recess and May 26 for Memorial Day.
District-wide half days are currently scheduled for Monday, Oct. 14 (staff development), Wednesday, Nov. 27 (Thanksgiving Eve), Monday, March 10 (staff development), and June 23-24.
