Verona’s public school calendar for 2010-2011 has been finalized and it looks a little different than last year. Spring Break, which for years has been scheduled for the last week in April, will fall during the third week of the month, April 18th through the 22nd. Students will also have off the following Monday, the 25th, which is Easter Monday, making it a 10-day vacation. Winter Break is from February 21, President’s Day, through Friday, February 25.
According to Superintendent Charles Sampson, the reason for the change to Spring Break is to enable voters to be in town for the school board election and budget vote on Wednesday, April 27. Ordinarily the election is held the third week in April but has been pushed back to accommodate Passover, which falls on Tuesday, April 19 in 2011.
So far the standardized testing dates have not been set. With the new schedule, and any luck, the exams will n0t begin the day kids return to school from break, as they did last year.
