Letter from Patricia Hopkins, Superintendent modifying 2016-2017 School Calendar

March 3, 2017

Re: 2016-2017 School Calendar

Dear MSAD 11 Colleagues and Families:

State law requires that all students attend school for a minimum of 175 days and Seniors specifically are required to attend for 170 days. Due to the number of snow days called this year, seniors are currently out of compliance with the required 170 school days. To bring them in compliance a change to this school year’s calendar has been made.

As per the current school calendar, March 16 and March 17 are teacher workshop days. Due to the issue explained above, the School Board has voted to make Thursday, March 16 a full student school day and Friday, March 17 an early release student day. These two changes will make the last student day of school be Thursday, June 15, 2017 unless there are more snow days.

I recognize that this change in the calendar may cause a hardship for some of you or you may already have plans that you cannot change on these days. If you have a situation that cannot be adjusted, please speak with your building administrator ASAP. We will try to accommodate people as best we can.


Patricia Hopkins
Superintendent of Schools

Zumbathon! March 3, 2017 from 6-8 PM


Traveling to a gym at LER . . .
Where the sweat does flow, and our dancing spirits wonder
Can't you hear, can't you hear your feet thunder
Remember to breathe, remember to bring your own water
But if you forget, we have public drinking bubblers.
This is a MSAD 11 Wellness Committee Event
All proceeds help fund a college scholarship to a Gardiner Area High School senior
that plans to study in the health/wellness field.
