JPS School Board Approves 2020-2021 District Calendar

February 12, 2020

The 2020-2021 District Calendar was approved by the Board of Trustees at its February 4 regular meeting. The detailed calendar is available as a downloadable PDF. The At-A-Glance calendar below includes the first and last days of school, Districtwide Closures, graduations and professional development days. We are releasing these dates earlier than usual to support our families and community partners in making their plans for the next school year.

The District will use five of the Districtwide Closures as inclement weather days if needed. If bad weather causes unplanned school closures during the school year, these days will be converted to regular school days to make up for the days missed:

  • Monday, October 12 (Fall Break)
  • Monday, October 26 (Parent-Teacher Conference Day)
  • Monday, February 15 (Parent-Teacher Conference Day)
  • Friday, April 2 (Good Friday)
  • Monday, April 5 (Easter Monday)
