The school schedules take into consideration two (2) inclement weather/other emergencies days that have been built into the schedule. In the event school is closed beyond the two days due to inclement weather or other emergencies, the remaining calendar period will be reviewed. If the closures result in a shortage of the required instructional time, the calendar will be adjusted and communicated as necessary.

Prior to the end of each school year, calculations will be done to determine if every school in the district meets the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction required number of student contact hours and minutes. A 30-minute student lunch period will be scheduled into each full day daily schedule.

Open house schedules will be established and communicated by each building prior to the beginning of the school year.
