2018-2019 School Calendar Approved by School Board

The Jackson County Board of Education, at its November 16, 2017 meeting, approved the 2018-2019 School Calendar. In an effort to assist families in planning summer activities, the Board decided to establish next year’s school calendar prior to the end of the first semester. “Each year, just after Christmas Break, our office begins to receive calls from parents about the starting day of the next school year. Many families need this information to schedule vacations or other family activities during the summer. Hopefully the new timetable for approving the calendar will be a help to many families in the county,” stated Superintendent Blaine Hess.

The first day of school for students will be Thursday, August 16, 2018. Teachers and other 200 day employees will return to work on Monday, August 13th, three days prior to the arrival of students. The calendar provides for the traditional Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring Breaks. The last day of school for the 2018-2019 school term is schedule to be May 31, 2019. The final day for students may be extended due to school closures for inclement weather.

An approved copy of the 2018-2019 School Calendar and the School Year at a Glance, which lists important dates during the school year are available on the Jackson County Schools website at boe.jack.k12.wv.us
