School District changes early release days to make up time lost to closures

The School District and the Mercer Island Education Association (MIEA) have mutually agreed to amend the 2006-2007 school calendar due to weather related conditions and the unprecedented nature of school closures. The School Board has approved a waiver of the days missed due to the power outage (3 days for grades K-8, 2 days grades 9-12). Subject to OSPI approval, school will end on June 26, 2007.

Elementary students will attend for a full day on the following Mondays: March 5, March 12, April 2, April 16 and April 23. School will be in session from 9:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Middle School students will attend for a full day on the following Mondays: March 5, March 12, April 2, April 16 and April 23. School will be in session from 8:25 a.m. to 2:50 p.m.
