SAB Approves 2016-2017 School Year Calendar

First Day of School Set for Wednesday, August 17


ST. LOUIS, MO. March 11, 2016 – Parents in the Saint Louis Public School District can now circle Wednesday, August 17 on the calendar as the first day of school for the 2016 - 2017 school year.  Students, however, will probably mark Thursday, May 25 – the last day of school for the 2016 - 2017 school year – as long as there are no snow days. The official calendar was approved by the Special Administrative Board at its meeting last night.


All told, SLPS students are scheduled to attend school for 175 days during the next school year, for a total of 1,128.75 hours. Teachers are contracted for 210 days during the school year, which include eight (8) professional development days and two (2) record keeping days.


SLPS students will enjoy a Winter Break from December 22 – January 3. All SLPS schools will be closed for Spring Break March 20 – March 24.
