Dear Pollock Pines Families,
The District is considering changes to the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school calendars. The basic structure of the calendars will remain the same, such as the first and last day of school.
The District is considering moving the Minimum Days/Early Release Days for the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school years from every other Monday to every Wednesday of the month. The release time for these days will changed to 1:00PM for Pinewood Elementary and 1:15PM for Sierra Ridge Middle School.
The District is considering this change to establish more consistency in the calendar and to allow for additional collaboration for staff to plan, disaggregate student data, and participate in consistent and ongoing professional development. The proposed calendars will also include the dates for Parent/Teacher conferences, Trimester end dates and the California State testing dates.
The Draft calendars will be sent home with each of the schools newsletters and will be available for viewing on the district website. The calendars will be on the March 14, 2017 Pollock Pines School Board agenda for approval by the School Board.
If you have questions, regarding the proposed calendars please feel free to contact me at 530-644-5416.
