The current last day of school is Thursday, May 26th.  That is, if school does not have to be closed any more for inclement weather.  Should school have to be closed for three days or more between now and Spring Break, then the first two days (April 4 & 5) of the planned Spring Break will be used to make up the missed days.  Hopefully, we will miss no more days!
