The Snoqualmie Valley School District recently made an adjustment to next year’s calendar for the 2020-21 school year. Specifically, the change involves starting school two days earlier, and the two days gained in June have been designated as potential make-up dates, if needed. This change was developed in partnership with the Snoqualmie Valley Education Association (SVEA) and was approved by the School Board on February 27, 2020.
Next fall, all SVSD students will start school the week before the Labor Day holiday. The first day of classes will be:
Monday, August 31, 2020, for students in grades 1-12 (the week prior to Labor Day); and
Thursday, September 3 for Preschool, Kindergarten, and Transition Learning Center (TLC) students.
The last day of classes will be:
Thursday, June 17, 2021 for Preschool students; and,
Friday, June 18 for students in Kindergarten through grade 11.
(Class of 2021 graduation dates and next year’s TLC celebration/last day have yet to be confirmed.)
Additionally, the following dates have been designated as make-up days next year, if needed in 2021: May 28 (Friday before Memorial Day), and June 21, 22, 23, 24, 25.
Given number of school closures we’ve experienced in recent years, we urge staff and families not make summer break plans until AFTER the designated make-up dates – in case additional make-up days are needed for student learning.
In January, the District announced four make-up days have been added to the current 2019-20 calendar, to make up instruction time lost during snow-related closures the week of January 13, 2020. Click here for details and the current school calendar.
