Evergreen School District releases post-strike class calendar

Students will find Thanksgiving and Christmas vacations cut short this year due to the teacher strike, but still wrap up June 13

VANCOUVER — Assuming there are no snow days this year, students in the Evergreen School District will still get to start Summer break on June 13. But the teacher strike that delayed the start of school by eight days will hit home over Thanksgiving and New Years. Instead of having those entire weeks off, students and teachers will only get Thanksgiving and the day after off, along with New Years Eve and New Years Day.

Two other days, January 28 and March 18, will also be regular school days instead of a semester break day and snow make up day respectively.

“In adjusting the calendar, the decision was made to add days throughout the year to ensure semester/trimesters had an equal number of days,” the district said in a statement, “and to provide students sufficient instruction prior to state and nationally mandated test dates (such as the Washington state SBAC, and the College Board Advanced Placement tests).”

The district won’t have much wiggle room after adjusting their calendar, so if bad weather cancels classes this year, it’s likely that Summer will start a little later.
