2021–22 School Calendar Set

School days for next year are approved

Elementary School Calendar 
Middle & High School Calendar

Key dates for next school year are set: The school board has approved the academic calendars for the 2021–22 school year.

The first day of school will be on a different day than usual this fall. Traditionally 4J begins school on the Wednesday after Labor Day. In 2021, this falls during Rosh Hashanah. While the district does not close schools during the year for major religious holidays, by policy and practice the district seeks to avoid scheduling important unique events for students on such days.

Students in selected grades will start the school year with a transition day on Thursday, Sept. 9, to support their transition to the new year and in-person school after more than a year of distance learning and hybrid on-site learning. The first day of classes for all grades will be on Friday, Sept. 10.

In another difference from previous school years’ calendars, the second Friday in October, the annual statewide in-service day, will be a regular school day.

Key dates for 2021–22 include:

  • Transition Day for Selected Grades: Thursday, Sept. 9
  • First Day for All Students: Friday, Sept. 10
  • Winter Break: Dec. 20–31 + Jan. 3 (potential makeup day)
  • Spring Break: March 21–25
  • Last Day of School: Friday, June 17 (unless school closure makeup days are needed)

Possible makeup days: Please be aware that the calendar and the last day of school may change. When schools are closed for reasons such as hazardous weather (“snow days”), makeup days may be scheduled during the school year, such as on a professional development/planning day or Presidents Day, or added to the end of the school year.
