Hello TFSD Families,
Earlier this week, the TFSD Board of Trustees approved a calendar for the upcoming school year. You can access the calendar by clicking the following link, https://www.tfsd.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/12/2023-2024-TFSD-Calendar-Board-Approved.pdf, and on our website.
As always, there are a variety of opinions about the school year calendar. Here in Twin Falls, we utilize a committee to establish a recommendation for the calendar. This committee is made up of representatives from each building as well as parent representatives. There are always compromises that must be made.
Here are some highlights of the 2023-24 calendar:
- The first semester will continue to wrap up prior to Christmas Break.
- A two-week Christmas break for students and building staff members.
- Five professional development and planning days throughout the year to help support educators and support staff members.
- The school year will continue to end prior to Memorial Day.
- The first day of school will be Wednesday, Aug. 16.
The calendar could have slight modifications between now and next year; however, at this time we do not expect there to be any substantial changes as we know families make plans based on the calendar.
