Dear St. Xavier Parents and Guardians,
The 2018-19 St. Xavier High School Draft calendar is now available HERE and in the Parent Portal. We wanted to communicate the calendar to our community as soon as possible in order to allow families to plan for next year.
Please look at the draft to see important dates for the 2018-19 school year, including the opening days, Christmas and spring breaks, and the end of school. Next year’s calendar will mirror the 2017-18 calendar in many ways, with one notable exception: spring break will move away from Easter and into March, immediately after 3rd quarter exams. We made this move for several reasons:
- We wanted to provide students with a break after 3rd quarter exams. This will provide more balance to our calendar and student lives.
- We wanted the timing of spring break to be consistent versus moving with Easter.
- Moving spring break away from Easter better serves our AP students, who take the AP exams in early May.
Please notice that we will still take Good Friday and Easter Monday off from school, allowing families time to celebrate the holiday.
The final version of the calendar, including specific school events, will be finalized in May. While some dates are subject to change, the start and end dates, Christmas break, and spring break dates have been finalized.
Thank you for your continued support of St. Xavier High School.
Terrence H. Tyrrell
