Dear Families,

Happy Spring!!  I think it is safe to say that we won’t have any more snow days!?  The last day of school for grades K-4 will be Wednesday, June 21st and Thursday, June 15th for preschool.   Fifth grade graduation will be on Tuesday, June 20th at 10:00 am (5th graders don’t have to come to school on the 21st).  Kindergarten graduation will be on the 21st at 10:00am.

We have also released the school calendar for next school year. Milford has decided to go with counting instructional hours versus school days.  Over the years we have done a combination of each here in Mason so that our school year wasn’t grossly different than Milford’s.  Now we will strictly go with instructional hours next year.  With this being said we will have snow days built into the schedule so that we will not have to make them up.  As long as we don’t have more than 10 snow days next year we can count on getting out on the scheduled last day which will be June 15th.

April 17th – 21st is the week to register for Kindergarten and First Grade.  Registration is for those children that aren’t already enrolled in the school.  Please come to the main office to get the paperwork for registration.   We currently have a waitlist for the preschool but if you have a child that turns 3 before September 30th and you think you would like them to come to preschool I suggest you add them to the waitlist.  If you have any questions please give Heidi a call at 878-2962.
