you know, this year has gotten off to a very stormy, snowy start. As a result, adjustments to the 2013-2014
school calendar must be made. Although
our school calendar was created to accommodate four inclement weather days,
yesterday’s closing made day number five.
To summarize, we were closed on the following days:
April 16th will become a full
day to replace the day missed on February 5th
April 17th will be an Early
Dismissal Day, without aftercare
May 23rd will be added to the
calendar in the event that we need to take another day for inclement weather.
It will be an Early Dismissal Day, without aftercare
May 27th will not be a snow

addition, the Archdiocese of Newark
has cancelled the Professional Development day scheduled for Hudson County
schools on February 13th
rescheduling it for May 6th.
Therefore, school will be open on

please note that Progress Reports for

calendar that reflects the changes outlined in this letter.
