At SPLS we try to coordinate with Polk County Schools in terms of days off, etc. But we realize that gets harder as the years go by.
We are publishing the School Calendar for SPLS for 2019-2020. It was approved by the Board of Christian Day School last week.
We have the same major holidays as Polk County:
Thanksgiving (and Storm Make Up)
Dr. Martin Luther King’s Birthday
Major SPLS variations include:
Starting two days earlier on August 8. It is our preference to start with a partial week.
Two and a half days off in September for our LC-MS Florida Georgia District Teacher’s Conference.
A day and a half off in October for Parent-Teacher Conferences.
Easter Monday off. This is an SPLS tradition.
Ending a few days earlier on May 22, before Memorial Day.
Please note: We have chosen to have school on April 10, which is Good Friday. It will be a half day. We feel strongly that the tradition of families going to Good Friday worship services during the day has faded into history. So, in addition to getting a half day of school in, we would end our morning with a special Good Friday worship experience to which families and the community would be invited.
