Revised School Calendar

                                                                     REVISED SCHOOL CALENDAR

Contrary to the school calendar revisions that were disseminated prior to Spring Recess, Blissfield Community Schools will now only need to add seven and one-half school days to the 2013-14 calendar, which is two day less than originally anticipated. Due to the excessive number of school cancellations that occured statewide this winter, Governor Snyder recently increased the number of school days the state would waive during the 2013-14 school year. 

On Thursday, April 17, students will now be in session for a half-day followed by Parent-Teacher Conferences from 12:30-3:30 and 5:00-8:00 pm.

All additional make-up days will be added to the end of the school year, resulting in the last day of school now being Wednesday, June 18. The previously scheduled half-days of June 6 and 9 will become full days while June 17 and 18 will be half-day sessions.

Commencement for the graduating senior class will remain on Friday, May 30 as originally scheduled.
