Superintendent of Schools Dr. Greg Florio announced this week that the District would be making a change to their school schedule with an eye towards holding Cheshire High School's graduation ceremony earlier.
Previously, April 1, the day after Easter, was to be designated as a professional development day for teachers only. Students were scheduled to have that day off. However, the District will now have a regularly scheduled day of classes on April 1.
The move, according to a statement released by Florio's office, allows the District to move CHS's graduation ceremony from Monday, June 24, to Friday, June 21. Because of a series of storms that have battered the area since the fall of last year, Cheshire schools have been forced to close on a number of occasions, meaning the last day of school had been pushed back to June 24. Now, however, barring any further school cancellations, the last day of classes will be Friday, June 21.
"This change is being made for a number of reasons related to the logistics associated with the end of school year activities such as High School Graduation. It also avoids the school year from moving into the last week of June as the summer weather sets in," the statement read.
