2019-20 Instructional Calendar Approved

posted Jan 16, 2019, 10:50 AM by Jessica Lester   [ updated Jan 16, 2019, 10:50 AM ]

calendar
The Perkiomen Valley School Board approved the 2019-20 instructional calendar at the Jan. 14th business meeting. The calendar features an Aug. 26, 2019, start for school, and a June 11, 2020, end date.

The calendar for next year is very similar to the current calendar, featuring parent-teacher conferences the week of Thanksgiving (meaning a full week off for students), and a winter break spanning Dec. 23 to Jan. 1.

Half-days have been included throughout the calendar year to accommodate in-service opportunities for professional and support staffs. Spring break will begin April 8 (which is an in-service day for graduation projects) and continue through April 13.

Graduation is planned for June 5, 2020. Three snow days have been built into this calendar. If none or only some of the snow days are used, the last day of school could be earlier than June 11.
