WHOOPS! 2017-2018 School Calendar Revised Due To Counting Error; New Last Day Of School Set

WILMINGTON, MA — At its most recent meeting, the Wilmington School Committee approved an updated 2017-2018 School Calendar after a miscounting error was realized.

The new last day of school, if all five built-in snow days are used, is Tuesday, June 19, 2018, NOT Wednesday, June 20, 2018.  The error occurred due to a typo involving the number of schools days in March 2018 — 21 days, not 20 as originally counted.

The new calendar, which — as of this writing — does not appear to be up on the district’s website yet, can be seen below:

School Calendar

Some key points include:

  • First day of school for Grades 1-12 is Tuesday, August 29
  • First day of school for Kindergarten is Tuesday, September 5
  • School will be closed on Election Day (Tuesday, November 7) for a Professional Development Day. Districts in the area are collaborating professional development efforts on that day.
  • There will be an Early Release Day on Friday, December 22, leading into Winter Vacation.
  • School is closed on Friday, March 30 in observance of Good Friday.
  • Last day of school is Tuesday, June 19, assuming all 5 built-in snow days are used. And that day will see an early dismissal.

(NOTE: Wilmington Apple previously reported on the release of the original calendar. That post has been updated.)
