Calendar Revised: 4J schools were closed due to snow and ice for three days in December and three days in January. The school calendar was adjusted in February 2017 to restore several missed school days and balance the length of the trimesters.

Five Days Restored: Four days will be made up at the end of the school year in June. The fifth school day will be restored during the school year, on March 17 at middle and high schools. This day was previously scheduled to be a no-school day for teacher planning and professional development.

Other Changes: Certain grading and progress report days have been changed in the revised calendar. The third trimester begins after spring break. High school graduation ceremony dates have not changed.

Weather Days: Additional days missed due to hazardous weather may be made up.

School Variations: Individual school calendars may vary slightly. Please check your school’s calendar for additional early-release or no-school days, such as conference days.

Original instructional calendar approved by the Eugene School Board on Apr. 6, 2016. Revised calendar approved on Feb. 1, 2017.
