A variety of items were approved by the St. Marys Area School District's Board of Directors during their recent monthly meeting.
A change was made to the 2018-2019 school year calendar. The district's spring inservice day has been changed to Wednesday, April 18 from Tuesday, April 17. Previously students would have had April 17 off, return for one day of school on April 18 then been off again on Friday, April 19 for spring break. By changing the inservice day dates students will have two consecutive days off.
Additional days off for the district are local holidays including Nov. 23 and 26, the Friday and Monday after Thanksgiving, Dec. 24 and 26, the day before and after Christmas, and April 19, the first day of spring break.
