Mars Area School Board has voted to amend the 2019-2020 Mars Area School District Calendar to better accommodate various end-of-school-year activities.
The revised calendar sets the last day of Online Continuity of Instruction (OCI) on Friday, June 5. However, all parents and students are asked to note that the official last day of school will not be until Thursday, June 11.
The In-Service Day (Clerical Day) for teachers/staff members that was previously scheduled on Friday, June 12, has been moved to Monday, June 8. And, Tuesday, June 9, through Friday, June 12, will become Act 80 Days.
During the week of June 8-12, the District’s schools will be implementing plans to collect District-issued devices, textbooks, library books, sports uniforms, supplies, etc.; distribute essential items (e.g. caps & gowns for graduating seniors); and return students’ personal items.
Collection/distribution at the District’s elementary schools (K-6) will be held on Monday, June 8, and Tuesday, June 9. Collection/distribution at Mars Area High School and Mars Area Middle School will be held, Monday, June 8, through Thursday, June 11.
More specific information will be forthcoming regarding the exact schedule and procedures for picking up/dropping off items. For more information, visit www.marsk12.org.
