Final Barcroft Calendar for School Year 2016-17

A final Barcroft calendar has been approved by the APS School Board. Some changes were discussed for the traditional APS calendar in their meeting, which had not been part of any of our options, but were required once they approved the final version. Most of the major components have stayed the same and below is a short list of important points:

  • NEW! Our first day of school is Monday, August 1, 2016.
  • NEW! We now have two FULL days of Parent Teacher conferences days in the Fall - Wednesday and Thursday, August 24 and 25
  • Still have Professional Learning days with no school for students on Friday, August 26 and Monday, August 29
  • Still have no school for students on Election Day
  • Still have no school for students on Veteran's Day
  • Still have a two week Winter Break
  • Still have an early release day and a full day of Parent Teacher conferences in the spring.
Let Ms. Bounet know if you have any questions.
