Letter: MACS instructional calendar updates

May 13, 2021

Dear MACS Family and Community,

Due to a lighter than normal winter and being able to utilize remote learning when possible, our district does not anticipate needing all of the emergency closing (snow days) planned for the 2020-21 school calendar.

Because of this, we will be modifying the MACS instructional calendar and the buildings will be closed as additional giveback days.

All Mexico Academy and Central School District students grades pre-K through 12 and staff who follow the instructional calendar will not be in attendance on Friday, May 28, 2021 and Tuesday, June 1, 2021 along with May 31, 2021 as the Memorial Day observance.

In addition, students in grades pre-K through eighth will not attend June 23, 24 or 25 as those days will be off as well. Many high school students will already be out of the building as these are Regents Exam Days (and Rating Day) and only those students who have exams on particular days will report at those specific testing times. All staff members will report to their buildings on these days.

Accordingly, students should not report for in-person or remote learning on these days. Please be sure to update your calendars with these changes and enjoy the extra time!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's principal or the district office.

Dr. Donna Runner
Superintendent of Schools
