Revised Calendar Information PDF Print E-mail

October 14, 2014

Dear Parent/Guardian,

At the beginning of the school year, there was not a final calendar in place for the 2014-2015 school year due to negotiations with the Wayland Union Education Association (WUEA).  The district issued a “tentative” calendar following last year’s contract until the new contract was finalized.

On October 13th, the WUEA ratified a new contract that the Board approved which means we will now be following the calendar that is contained in the contract. 

Three important calendar changes to make you aware of:

1)    Monday, October 27 will now be a regular full day of school
2)    Five half days have been added to the calendar for staff professional development
3)    June 5 is our tentative last day and is also a half day

The five half early release days are on Wednesdays, Nov. 5, Dec. 3, Feb. 4, Mar. 25, and May 13. Friday, June 5, our tentative last day of school is also a half day.   Why is WUS having Early Release Days?

Half day dismissal times are as follows:

High School – 10:35am        Middle School – 10:45am    Pine Street – 10:30am
Steeby Elem. – 11:45am        Baker Elem. – 12:00pm        Dorr Elem. – 11:50am

Sack lunches will be available for students to order on the half days.

If you need childcare for your children on those half days, the YMCA Childcare would be available. However, advance notice is needed in order to use the childcare at either Baker or the Dorr locations.  Please call the YMCA at (616) 891-6223 to register two weeks in advance.

Please see the following calendars for the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school years.  If you have any questions, please contact our administration office at (269) 792-2181.
