School Announcements

  • Dear Medford School District Families:

    As you know, due to a record-breaking winter storm, all Medford schools were closed January 3-6. In order to provide a full instructional year for students, the Medford School District is making changes to the end of the first semester immediately and proposing a revision to the calendar to restore lost instructional days for the remainder of the year. The revised calendar will be finalized by January 23rd. The details are listed below. We know that school closures and calendar changes can be challenging and we hope to create a solution that improves student achievement with the least disruption to students, staff, and families. 

    EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY  The end of first semester will move from January 26th to February 2nd. Students will attend school on January 27th and not attend school on February 3rd.  We hope that this will improve student achievement and balance the number of instructional days in both semesters. 

    The school district leadership is in conversation with the Board of Education and the two employee bargaining units regarding adjusting the calendar for the remainder of the year. The final decision regarding the calendar will be made on January 23rd. The following changes to the calendar are being proposed at this point:

    TO BE DETERMINED BY JANUARY 23rd Students would potentially attend school on: 

    •        Presidents’ Day, February 20

    •        Conference Day, March 13

    •        Grading Day, April 14

    •        Snow Make-Up Day, June 15
