2013-14 Hazelwood School District Calendar Set

It appears students will begin school on August 12, 2013 and end May 30, 2014.

The Hazelwood School District (HSD) is all set to go for the 2013-2014 calendar year.

HSD Board of Education approved the proposed calendar, which Dwight Lindhorst, assistant superintendent for finance and facilities said reflects the same format as this year's calendar.

School would start on August 12, 3013. Parent/teacher conferences are scheduled for October 24-25.

Similar to what occurred this past Thanksgiving observance, break would include the Wednesday before the holiday, and be November 27-29.

The last day of first semester would be Dec. 20, with the first day back from winter break being Jan. 6, 2014.

Spring Break would be March 24-28.

The last scheduled day for school would be May 30, 2014.

"As usual this calendar has six days built in for inclement weather so the calendar would be shortened for any days not used," Lindhorst said. "Theoretically if we use no snow days school could end as early as May 21."

One other consideration that could affect the calendar could be ongoing professional development for teachers and administrators, Lindhorst also mentioned.

"While the days of the calendar wouldn't change, starting and ending times for certain days could change," he said.

Any change of the calendar would be brought to the HSD Board of Education in April or May of this year for approval.

Remember when school used to start AFTER Labor Day and still end before June? Those were the days.
