The Board of Trustees of the Sulphur Springs Independent School District met this week and made sweeping changes for the 2023-2024 Calendar. The first day of classes for students remains to be August 22, 2023, but several staff prep days have now been changed to instructional days meaning students will report to the classroom on those days. This change is to create more time for students in the classroom.
The six extra days that students will now have to attend class are:
- September 25, 2023
- October 16, 2023
- November 6, 2023
- December 11, 2023
- February 12, 2024
- May 10, 2024
Students and Teachers will pick up an extra holiday on April 1, 2024 as that day was previouly listed as a Staff Prep day but will now be designated as a Holiday in observance of Easter (which this year falls on March 31, 2024).
Teachers will still report for Staff Prep days on January 8 & 9, 2024 as well as March 18, 2024 and May 24, 2024. Two “weather make-up days” remain on the calendar for SSISD for February 23 & May 17, 2024.
The revised SSISD 2023-2024 calendar is shown below.
