Due to construction at Danbury High School, all Danbury Public Schools will start after Labor Day for the 2017-2018 school year.
Tuesday September 5th will be a full school day. The plan is to return to a start date in late August the following school year. Superintendent Dr. Sal Pascarella says construction at DHS is on schedule, but they want the an extra week to assure that the building is ready to accommodate students.
The entire school year calendar has been adjusted so that the school year is not unnecessarily extended to make up for the late start. A half day of school is scheduled for Wednesday, November 22, the day before Thanksgiving break. A full day has also been added on Tuesday, February 20th, following President’s Day.
The tentative last day of school for students will be June 15, 2018. The new start date will not affect the Early Release days for Professional Development that were built into last year’s calendar.
