The Board of Education has approved the following Instructional Calendar for the 2023-2024 school year. Normally three years’ worth of calendars are approved at one time. However, there was strong interest from staff and the parent community to explore a calendar that provides a day off during the month of October that celebrates Indigenous Peoples Day and breaks up the long stretch between Labor Day and Veterans Day with no days off. As a result, the following calendar has been approved for 2023-24. Highlights include:

  • School will begin on Tuesday, August 22, 2023 as a result of adding a School Holiday on October 9, 2023 for Indigenous People’s Day.
  • Winter break will be December 25-January 5.
    In consideration of keeping spring break consistent and predictable, spring break will continue to be connected to UCD for the 2023-2024 calendar and will occur March 25-29, 2024.
  • The last day of instruction will be on Thursday, June 6, 2024, to allow for DSHS graduation on Friday.
