Classes will start before Labor Day this year in Stillwater Area Public Schools.
The Stillwater Board of Education on Thursday approved the 2015-16 school calendar. The school year will start Monday, Aug. 31, and end on Friday, June 3.
“With the Labor Day holiday falling later into the month of September, a pre-Labor Day start would allow school to wrap up the first week of June,” the committee’s recommendation to the Board reads. In 2015, Labor Day is Monday, Sept. 7.
The commission also recommends a pre-Labor Day start of the 2016-17 school year, when Labor Day falls on March 5.
According to the new schedule, winter break will be Dec. 23 to Jan. 3, with students returning to class on Jan. 4. Spring break will be March 21-25, 2016.
