Lake County parents and students invited to help choose 2021-22 student calendar

It’s time to choose the Lake County Schools 2021-22 student calendar.

The district’s calendar committee has developed two student calendar options. All parents, students and other stakeholders are invited to participate in a public survey to let the School Board know which of the new options is most preferred.

The survey opened on Monday, Nov. 30, and will close at 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 4. Employees voted separately in an early version of the survey earlier this month.

Both calendar options have school starting on Tuesday, Aug. 10, the earliest start date allowed by state statute. Both options also recognize Labor Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Presidents’ Day as student holidays.

But there are difference among the schedules. The spring break dates are different on each option. One option has Veterans Day as a day off, while the other would have students in school on Veterans Day with relevant activities offered. Each option also has a different  last day of school.

Summary outlines are shown below:

OPTION 1: 

  • Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2021 – Students attend school with relevant activities to honor veterans.
  • Full week off at Thanksgiving – Nov. 22-26, 2021.
  • Winter break begins Monday, Dec. 20, 2021, with classes resuming Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2022.
  • Spring Break – Monday, March 21, 2022 – Friday, March 25, 2022.
  • Friday, April 15, 2022 – Non-student day.
  • Last Day of classes – Thursday, May 26, 2022.

See Option 1 in detail.

OPTION 2:

  • Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2021 – Student holiday.
  • Full week off at Thanksgiving – Nov. 22-26, 2021.
  • Winter break begins Monday, Dec. 20, 2021, with classes resuming Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2022.
  • Spring Break – Monday, March 14, 2022 – Friday, March 18, 2022.
  • Friday, April 15, 2022 – Students attend school.
  • Last Day of classes – Friday, May 27, 2022.

See Option 2 in detail.

The survey link is available on the district’s Facebook and Twitter pages. A link will be emailed to parents via the Peachjar web application as well. Participants will be required to log into a Google account.

Survey results will be shared with School Board members after the public survey closes on Dec. 4. They are expected to cast the final vote, which will determine the 2021-22 student calendar, at the Dec. 14 meeting. Employee calendars for 2021-22 will be determined after the student dates are finalized.
