The Philadelphia School District’s calendar for the 2015-16 school year has been released online. The school year will start on September 8 and go until Summer break on June 22. For convenience, some of the important dates to remember for next year are below:
The 2015-16 School year begins on September 8. Get ready to return to school on to meet the new freshman and your new class stream as well as preparing how to say goodbye to the new seniors.
The Quarter Gradebook close on these following days: November 19, February 9, April 19, and June 14. Make sure all of your extra work and retakes are finished before these dates.
Winter Break is from December 24 to January 4. Enjoy the snow and winter holidays and be prepared to start 2016 on a good note.
Spring Break is March 21 to 25. Unlike the last two year’s Spring Fakes this year we will have a full five school days off to enjoy Spring. Hopefully this will keep and not be affected by our Snow Days.
The school district will be giving students a special holiday as well. On September 25 Pope Papal will be visiting Philadelphia meaning a two to three day break for most schools in the area. The school district has confirmed a day off on September 25 but has not confirmed the exact dates off for all schools.
Summer Break is on June 22. Another long break that will lead into the 2016-17 School Year, and the last chance to say goodbye to seniors
