IMPORTANT CALENDAR NOTES - There are 180 student days and 192 teacher days (195 for new teachers). Last days for students and teachers are subject to change. 10- and 11-month employees can refer to Bulletin M-1-21 for clarification on workdays.

1INCLEMENT WEATHER MAKE-UP DAYS - Any additional inclement weather days where we cannot be in school the entire day will be virtual learning days to ensure we do not move further in June before school concludes.

2All school-based custodial staff members may leave three hours earlier than the normal days ending, following established building cleaning. All central office employees will continue to follow their regular duty day schedule as identified by their supervisor and division chief.

RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS - Major religious holidays are noted for planning purposes only. Jewish and Muslim holidays begin the day before at sunset. To avoid excluding students, families and staff from important meetings or activities, PGCPS prohibits scheduling these events on major holidays noted with an asterisk (*) on this calendar. This restriction does not apply to state or regional events.
