We hope you are having a great week. We are writing today with important information and an opportunity for input regarding the 2023-24 school calendar.

Proposed 2023-24 Calendar

At last night’s School Board meeting, the Calendar Committee presented the proposed calendar for the 2023-24 school year, which is now open for public comment. The proposed calendar includes the following:

- A staggered start to the school year similar to the past three school years. Students in Pre-K, Kindergarten, First Grade, Third Grade at John M. Gandy Elementary School only, Sixth Grade, and Ninth Grade would start on Monday, August 21, and all students would go to school on Tuesday, August 22.
- Two Flexible Learning Days (Monday, November 6 and Wednesday, March 6);
- Two full weeks of Winter Break (December 25 through January 5); and
- Spring Break the first full week of April

The proposed calendar was developed by a committee of parents, teachers, support employees, and administrators and in coordination with the other major school divisions in the metro-Richmond area.

Answers to commonly asked questions can be found on our website.

Pre-Labor Day Start

As a reminder, the School Board previously approved the start and end dates for the 2023-24 school year. The 2023-24 school year will begin on Monday, August 21 and the school year will end on Friday, May 31.

New teachers will report on August 7 and the teacher work week will be August 14-18.

Input Wanted

Families, faculty, staff, and community members are encouraged to provide input and suggestions regarding the proposed 2023-24 calendar. The public comment period opens today and runs through Tuesday, December 6. Please complete this survey to provide your input.
