Dear Region 15 Parents, Guardians, and Staff:
Last night at the meeting of the Region 15 Board of Education, the Board approved, at my recommendation, a change to the 2015-16 school calendar. A professional development half-day has been changed from Wednesday, March 2, 2016 to Friday, March 4, 2016. This is the only change that was made to the 2015-16 calendar. This change was necessitated by an announcement from the Connecticut State Department of Education regarding required state testing for eleventh grade students that could not be accommodated by the previous schedule.
Therefore, Wednesday, March 2, 2016 will now be a full day of school for all students, and Friday, March 4 will be an early release day for all students.
Dismissal times for Friday, March 4 will be the same as for all planned early release days: PHS at 11:30, Midde Schools at 12:15, Elementary Schools at 1:00.
The updated calendar is attached for your convenience, and I thank you in advance for your attention to this necessary change.
Regina L. Botsford, Superintendent
Updated 2015-16 Calendar
