2018-2019 VCS School Calendar Amended

The Valdosta Board of Education voted to amend the 2018 - 2019 Academic Calendar during the January work session.
The board voted to add an additional day of preplanning, which will now be August 1 - 7.  The first day of school is now on Wednesday, August 8.  Fall break was also changed, it will be Friday, October 5 through Monday, October 8.  There will be no teacher in-service day in October.
Please also note that we have added potential weather make-up days.  These days are indicated by an asterisk in the lower, left corner.  What does that mean?  These days could be used as regular school/work days in the event that we need to add days back to our calendar.  Our weather has truly been unpredictable the past few years and we needed to make sure we had a place in our calendar to regain school/work days should we have to close for extended periods of time due to unexpected circumstances.
