Revised First Day of School for Students

September 2, 2021

Dear parents / guardians,

As a result of the extreme rain and resultant flooding our city is experiencing, we’re forced to make adjustments related to the beginning of our school year. Specifically, our teachers and staff will return to their buildings on Wednesday, September 8, while the first day for students will now be Thursday, September 9.

Our revised schedule is pushing back the return of students by one day. September 9th and 10th will be early dismissal days for students.

For all other pertinent information to help prepare you and your child for the return to school refer to the August 2021 message to the parents and school community.

I appreciate your understanding and hope you’re staying safe as we deal with this unprecedented weather event. An updated district calendar will be available on our district website.

Thank you, 

Dr. Aubrey A. Johnson 
Superintendent of Schools
