No School on Friday Jan 24 and Exams are Canceled

Stafford County Schools will be closed on Friday Jan 24th.  It will be a Teacher Workday.  On Monday there will be school.  Middle school and high school exams are canceled. 

These decisions are not easy decisions for the school system.  It is unfortunate the weather has made it difficult on Stafford Schools this year.  Many of us have heard from many parents and we most certainly understand your concerns.   However dueSnowHappySadFaces.jpg to mandates by the state on the number of days/hours of instructional time required for the year we have to make these changes.  

President's Day, February 17th will be a school day.  With the swapping of Friday for Monday as a Teacher Work Day right now that is the only day that will change.  If we experience any more inclement weather that requires school closures or delays the following changes will be made:

  1. Early outs on April 18, May 23, and June 11 are canceled, making those school days 6.5 hours long,
  2. Teacher workday on April 4 becomes a school day, and
  3. June 16 and 17 are added to the calendar.

From Stafford County Schools Pubic Information Office:

Stafford Schools Announces Changes to Schedule 

Due to the loss of instruction time during the inclement weather this week, Friday, January 24th, will now be a professional day/teacher work day, however; teachers will have the option to work from home.  To allow for the parking lots and sidewalks to clear, all staff including teachers will report on a two-hour delay on Friday.  All buildings and offices will open at 10 a.m.

There is no school for students on Friday, January 24th.  All exams are canceled.  Monday, January 27th will now be a regular school day (an X day for middle and high school students) and will be the last day of the first semester.   All grades will be submitted by Friday, January 31st and report cards will be issued on February 11th.

The time lost from today’s (January 23) closure means that Stafford County Schools will be in session on Monday, February 17th, 2014 (the President’s Day holiday).

All scheduled activities for Friday, January 24, and Saturday, January 25, may continue as scheduled.  This includes all high school athletic competitions, the SATs and the AP Mathematics Prep Sessions.  For information regarding activities at a specific school site, please contact that school directly (or check their webpage).
