Change In School Calendar

The Board of Education voted to alter the current 2017-2018 school year calendar to make February 15 an early release day in order to continue the district’s priority work in professional learning.

February 15 is now officially an early release day, and teachers will engage in highly personalized and relevant learning from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., 12:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m., 12:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m., or 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m., depending on each teacher’s school of employment.

An early dismissal schedule will be followed for all students on Thursday, February 15, 2018. As with all early release days, should there be a weather related situation, or other issue that requires a delayed opening of schools, the status will change to a full day of school on a delayed opening schedule.

Early Dismissal Schedule:

  • Ridgefield High School - 10:30 a.m.
  • East Ridge Middle School and Scotts Ridge Middle School - 11:05 a.m.
  • Branchville Elementary School, Ridgebury Elementary School, and Scotland Elementary School - 11:40 a.m.
  • Barlow Mountain Elementary School, Farmingville Elementary School, and Veterans Park Elementary School - 12:15 p.m.
