last Day of school

Currently the last day of school will be Tuesday, May 26.  The dismissal time will be 1:30 PM.  Lunch will be served on that day.

To create time in order to justify the early dismissal, there will be no late-start time on Wednesday, May 20.

Wednesday
One (1) hour Late Starts

Each Wednesday, for the remainder of the school year, will begin with a one (1) hour late start for Professional Learning for the Decorah Community School District staff.

 

Early Dismissal and School Calendar

We’ve had the question arise on our early outs and whether or not they affect our required days of attendance. The simple answer is , “No.” As per a rewrite of the legislation, all late starts or early outs due to weather are treated in the same fashion they always have been; they count as a full day of school. In other words, our past two early releases due to heat have had no effect on our school calendar.
