The last day of school will be June 16, per direction from the state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to add five days to the end of the school year to make up days and instructional hours lost in the initial days of schools closing due to COVID-19. Friday, May 22 will remain a non-school day so students and staff may enjoy the Memorial Day weekend.
With the extension of the school year through June 16, the district must offer seniors opportunities for instruction at least through Tuesday, June 9, which will be two school days after graduation on June 5. This is required by the state, which permits districts to use no more than the last five days of the school year for graduation and early release of seniors.
Accordingly, seniors may complete assignments necessary for graded courses at least through June 9. In addition, seniors are invited to contact teachers, counselors, or administrators through June 9 for advice or assistance with college or career plans, financial aid, references, or preparation of resumes.
