The 2020-2021 calendar has been released! Here are a couple highlights from the upcoming school year:
- Our calendar is similar but not identical to Buncombe County schools. Our major breaks line up with their major breaks, so that families with students in both districts can have time together.
- We continue with early releases on Wednesdays. However – notice that we have built in a number of “full” Wednesdays. These allow us to fit in the required number of instructional hours for the year, while also providing time for teachers to learn and collaborate on our “short” Wednesdays.
- The 1st semester ends at winter break.
- Our winter break is two full weeks – with weekends on both sides. We may not always be able to do this, but it really makes for a lovely long break!
- We have built in some time for weather delays, plus three designated days (1 in February and 2 in March) that we will use if we have weather cancellations. Please note there are additional days in June that will be used if needed, and plan accordingly.
As always, calendars are subject to change based on weather or other unforeseen conditions. We do our best to minimize any changes! FSI 2020-21 Calendar
