(Neb)-School Board Approves 17-18 Calendar Listen
CHADRON - The Chadron School Board has approved the school calendar for next year. The first day of classes for students will be Wednesday August 19th while their last day will be Monday May 23rd - at least for now.
Superintendent Dr Caroline Winchester says the calendar includes 2 extra days just in case of bad weather or other school closures, so the last day could be Thursday May 19th.
Christmas break will be a full 2 weeks, from Wednesday December 20th to Wednesday January 3rd. Some board members questioned the need for 2 full weeks since some nearby districts won't start their vacations until the 21st, but Winchester says the teachers wanted the full 14 days and she felt it was a reasonable request.
The school year for the teachers starts before and ends after that of the students.
