CALENDAR CHANGE TO RESTORE SCHOOL DAYS
The Eugene School District has adjusted this year’s school calendar to restore five of the school days that were missed due to hazardous winter weather.

Four school days will be made up at the end of the school year in June. The new final day for students is Thursday, June 22.

At middle and high schools, the fifth school day will be restored before spring break in March. The previously scheduled no-school day on March 17 for teacher planning and professional development has been changed to a regular school day. The grading day for the second trimester has been moved from March 16 to April 3 and the third trimester will begin on April 4, after spring break.

Certain other days also have been changed in the revised calendar to balance the school year. High school graduation dates have not changed.

Please see the attached revised red/white calendar or check our school’s calendar on the Roosevelt website for additional no-school days that are not part of the district-wide calendar.
