Medora updates 2016 school calendar


The Medora Community Schools board of trustees approved the 2015-16 school calendar during its recent meeting in the school library.

The only change to the calendar is spring break was moved up to March 14 to 18. That is now aligned with Indiana University’s spring break, which Bedford North Lawrence High School follows. Medora has students who take vocational classes at BNL.

The first day of school for teachers will be Aug. 10, and students will start Aug. 11. School will not be in session on Labor Day, Sept. 7.

Fall break is set for Oct. 19 to 23, Thanksgiving break is Nov. 25 to 27 and Christmas break will be Dec. 21 to Jan. 3.

Built-in snow days in 2016 are scheduled for Jan. 18, Feb. 15 and April 22. There also won’t be school on Good Friday, March 25.

The last day of school for students is set for May 26, 2016, and the Class of 2016 will have commencement at 7:30 p.m. May 27.

If it is necessary, snow days will be used to make up student instructional days. Any additional days missed will be added to the end of the scheduled school year beginning May 31.
