A longer Christmas Break, a shorter February Break and an earlier last day of school are in store for Midland Park students for the 2014-15 school year. The Board of Education voted to approve the calendar at its March 4 meeting. 

School will start on Thursday, Sept. 4 and end on Friday, June 19. Christmas Recess will begin with a half day on Dec. 23 and students will return to school on Monday, Jan. 5. 

The calendar includes three snow days, instead of the two that were allotted for 2013-14, and clearly spells out contingency plans should days need to be made up due to weather. 

Instead of the traditional full-week off for President's Week, schools will have a four-day weekend, with Monday and Tuesday off. However, should there be a need to make up lost instructional days due to weather, the calendar clearly states the days will be taken from February break. If more days are needed, the district intends to take days from Spring Break, and possibly extend the school year. 

The approved calendar is available on the district's website here
