District Update - 1.10.24
(For an archive of all of our previous District Updates, see below.)
Change in 2023-24 District Calendar
At Monday evening's meeting, the Board of Education approved an adjustment to the district calendar for this spring. These changes were made in order to accommodate the date of the primary election in Ohio as well as the solar eclipse in April.
Specifically, those changes are:
- March 19, 2024 - Students will not attend school
- April 8, 2024 - Students will not attend school
- May 7, 2024 - Students will attend school
You can download the updated version on the district website, on the WolfPack Hub, or by clicking here.
Why were these changes made? When the 2023-24 district calendar was adopted, Ohio had not yet announced the date of the 2024 primary election. We now know that election day is March 19th. May 7th was earmarked as a Professional Learning Day. In order to ensure student safety with voting taking place in many of our schools, we have moved the May 7th Professional Learning Day to March 19th. In addition, on April 8, 2024, Southwest Ohio will experience a partial solar eclipse. The timing of the eclipse unfortunately aligns with the dismissal of several elementary schools and our high school, posing risks for student drivers, bus drivers and elementary-aged students getting on and off buses. In the interest of student safety, we have changed this day to a Professional Learning Day for staff only.

West Clermont 'Focus on Facilities' Town Hall Series
Our final 'Focus on Facilities' Town Hall is January 18, 2024 at 6 PM at West Clermont Middle School. During this event, we will examine the changing needs in facilities as well as the challenges of aging buildings, limited space, and the need for modern learning environments for our students. Through the Town Hall process, we will establish a Community Advisory Team that will assist the district in the formation of a Master Facilities Plan that is educationally-appropriate, financially responsible, and community-supported. Make sure your voice is heard! Seating is limited, so be sure to reserve your spot here!
