Welcome to Imlay City Schools


2018-2019 School Calendar Modifications

As you know, this year we have experienced an inordinate number of school cancellations due to inclement weather. Under Michigan law, school Districts are required to provide 180 days and 1098 hours of instruction each school year. As a result, Imlay City Schools must modify its current year calendar in order to comply with the state law. With the best interests of our students and families in mind, and in order to meet our legal obligation, ICS is making the following modifications to the current (2018-2019) school calendar:

1. Adding three (3) days of instruction. The last day of school for students will now be Tuesday, June 18, 2019. 

2. Adding 16.5 minutes to the school day beginning on Monday, April 15, 2019 through the end of the school year. The end of the school day for students in each building, beginning on April 15, will be as follows:

Weston Elementary: 3:57 PM
Borland Elementary: 3:47 PM
Imlay City Middle School: 2:32 PM
Imlay City High School: 2:27 PM
Venture High School 2:22 PM

Start times at each building will remain the same. 

*Please remember, should inclement weather or other issues necessitate any additional cancellations as we enter into Spring, additional days will need to be added to this year's school calendar. 

 2019-2020 School Calendar

On March 18, 2019, the ICS Board of Education approved the 2019-2020 school calendar. You'll notice some changes to the calendar from previous years. In constructing the calendar, our primary goals were to ensure as many uninterrupted instructional blocks as possible while meeting our obligations to state law, establishing a more reasonable end day for school (as early in June as possible), and taking measures to minimize the likelihood of having to add makeup days due to weather-related school cancellations. The best way to meet each of these goals was to consider a slightly earlier start to the 2019-2020 school year. As a result, students will start school four days earlier next year than in the previous few years. 

The start date for students for the 2019-2020 school year will be Monday, August 19, 2019. The tentative end date for students will be Thursday, June 4, 2020.
