Updated 2016/17 School Calendar

Updated 2016/17 School Calendar
Posted on 07/06/2016

Dear Parents,

I am pleased to share that we have finalized the 2016/17 school calendar. As I shared last

month, our previously scheduled Spring Break conflicted with the Michigan Department of Education’s SAT college entrance exam date for high school juniors. Due to this, we had to make adjustments to the calendar to ensure that we provided our students with every opportunity to be successful on the SAT.

You can find the full 2016/17 school calendar at http://goo.gl/KzHv2S. I have highlighted the changes to the calendar below.

  • 2016/17 Spring Break, Monday, March 27, 2017 - Friday, March 31, 2017
  • No School, Friday, April 14, 2017, “Good Friday”
  • School in session, Monday, April 17, 2017

The Livingston Educational Service Agency sets a Common Calendar that each of the five school districts in the county must follow for their Winter Holiday and Spring Breaks. The new 2016/17 school calendar is aligned to the common calendar. Additionally, the Livingston Educational Service Agency has revised the Common Calendar for the next five years to ensure that there will not be a conflict between our scheduled Spring Break and the SAT date in the future. You can view the five-year Common Calendar at http://goo.gl/RGm1Pv.

The school year calendar is an item that is negotiated as part of the collective bargaining agreement with the teachers’ union, the Howell Education Association. I would like to thank the Howell Education Association for their collaboration on revising the 2016/17 school calendar. I would also like to thank each of you for your patience and understanding throughout this process.

Sincerely,
Erin J. MacGregor
Superintendent
Howell Public Schools
