2018-2019 School Calendar Modifications

May 10, 2019

Dear Parents / Guardians of Imlay City Schools:

The district has been following the developments of House Bill 4206, which allows schools to forgo making up days from this winter’s record-cold State of Emergency Days.  This afternoon, the Governor signed the bill, making it State law.  As a result, Imlay City Schools is able to alter our current school calendar and eliminate three previously required makeup days.

  • The last day of school for students will now be a full-day on Thursday, June 13

While the new law does provide latitude in forgiving declared State of Emergency days, it does not eliminate our obligation to meet the 1,098 instructional hours required by law.  In order to meet our required number of instructional hours and minutes, we will continue to observe the current daily schedule established on April 15, which includes the addition of instructional minutes to each school day through the end of the year.  So, the end of the school day in each building will remain:

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

Please remember, should an inclement weather event, power outage, or other issue, however unlikely, necessitate any additional cancellations of school through the end of the year, additional days will need to be added to the calendar. 

It has been a difficult year with school interruptions and cancellations.  Know that we appreciate your patience as the new law moved through legislative process.  If you have questions about these calendar modifications, please contact the office of your child’s school.

Sincerely yours,

Dr. Stu Cameron

 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.
