Updated 2016-2017 School/Closure Calendar

Dear Milton-Freewater Families:

 

Thank you all for your patience with our weather this winter.  Over the last three months we have experienced 7 cancellations and 3 late starts due to inclement weather and one power outage.  While we do not like to cancel school; the roads and sidewalks were impossible to manage.  Our decisions were made in the interest of safety for all concerned.

 

The District made those decisions knowing down the road we may be obligated to make those days/hours up due to educational requirements of the State of Oregon, and our obligation to children.  At the School Board meeting on February 13th the Board accepted my recommendation to make the following changes to our 2016-2017 calendar:

 

·       Eliminate spring conferences on March 6th and 7th (students will attend school on those days)

·       Friday, April 14 will be a school day with an early release (previously a teacher work day)

·       We will have school on Friday, May 12 (previously a day off for Junior Show)

·       The last day of school for students K thru 11 will now be June 13th.  June 13th will be a half day.

·       June 1st will now be the last day of school for seniors.

·       Teacher workday, June 14th (no school for kids)

 

This assumes we will miss no other school days.  If additional days are missed, they will be added on to the end of the school year.

 

With the addition of these days the District will meet the requirements of the Oregon Department of Education, State of Oregon, and provide the educational opportunities to the children of Milton-Freewater.  We will post the updated calendar on the Districts website. 

 

There was no perfect or easy answer to this dilemma; as the number of days missed could not have been anticipated.  The Milton- Freewater School District hopes this plan will work for everyone involved.  Our goal is to meet the educational needs of our children. 

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Rob

Dr. Rob Clark, Superintendent

 

 

 

Estimadas familias de Milton-Freewater:

Gracias a todos por su paciencia con nuestros  con el clima de este invierno. En los últimos tres meses hemos tenido 7 cancelaciones  de clases y 3  llegadas tardes debido a las inclemencias del tiempo y un apagón eléctrico. Aunque no nos gusta cancelar la escuela; Los caminos y las carreteras era imposibles de manejar. Nuestras decisiones se tomaron en base a la  seguridad  de todos.

 

El Distrito tomó estas decisiones sabiendo que estaríamos obligados a trabajar días extras  para remplazar  los días que perdimos, para cumplir con los requisitos educativos del Estado de Oregón, y con  nuestra obligación a los estudiantes. En la reunión de la Junta Escolar el 13 de febrero, la Junta aceptó mi recomendación de hacer los siguientes cambios en nuestro calendario 2016-2017:

 

·       Eliminar las conferencias de primavera los días 6 y 7 de marzo (los estudiantes asistirán a la escuela en esos días)

·       El viernes 14 de abril será un día escolar con una salida temprana (previamente un día de trabajo del maestro)

·       Tendremos clases el viernes, 12 de mayo (previamente un día libre para Junior Show)

·       El último día de clases para los estudiantes de K a 11 será el 13 de junio. El 13 de junio será un medio día.

·       El 1 de junio será el último día de clases para los estudiantes de último año.

·       Día de trabajo de los maestros, 14 de junio (No habrá clases para los estudiantes)

Esto es asumiendo que ya no  perderemos otros días de clases. Si faltamos más  días adicionales, los remplazaremos  al final del año escolar.

Con la adición de estos días, el Distrito cumplirá con los requisitos del Departamento de Educación de Oregón, y proporcionará las oportunidades educativas a los estudiantes de Milton-Freewater.  Publicaremos  el calendario actualizado en el sitio de la web del Distritos.

No había una respuesta perfecta o fácil a este dilema; Ya que el número de días perdidos no podría haber sido anticipado. El Distrito Escolar Milton-Freewater espera que este plan funcione para todos los involucrados. Nuestro objetivo es satisfacer las necesidades educativas de nuestros estudiantes.

Sinceramente,

Robar

Dr. Rob Clark, Superintendente
