Please note: While we make every effort to plan our year carefully, certain unforeseen circumstances, such as weather or health related closures, will occasionally force us to change our calendar. Additionally, new items are added to our calendar often as the year progresses. For these reasons, we ask that once the school year begins you refer to your personalized calendar in the Patriot Portal.
