Last Day of School Waiver Request Update - May 8 2017

De Soto Community,

A letter has been formally submitted to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) requesting a student calendar waiver. As school was cancelled on Wednesday, May 3 and Thursday, May 4 due to flooding and safety concerns, the district has requested that DESE not require the district to make the two days of student attendance. The District has been informed by DESE that a decision on whether or not the days will need to be made up by students will be made by Tuesday, May 9. As of today, the last day of school for students will be a half-day on Friday, May 19, 2017. If DESE grants the waiver then the last day of school for students would be Wednesday, May 17, 2017. As soon as we know of any decision from the state, we will let provide the information to students, parents, and staff so everyone can plan accordingly.

With Dragon Pride,
