WILMINGTON, MA — As its meeting tonight, the Wilmington School Committee approved Thursday, June 21, 2018 as the last (180th) day of school for Wilmington Public Schools for the 2017-2018 school year.
“It’s been a trying year with the snow, and rain & wind storms,” said Interim Superintendent Paul Ruggiero. “We have had 7 inclement days. The first one was October 30, then three in January, and three in March.”
“Even with seven inclement days, we’re still in pretty good shape,” noted Ruggiero.
Ruggiero pointed out that many school districts that started school after Labor Day was running into scheduling issues, including extending the school days, losing a day during April vacation, and/or going to school on some Saturdays.
The last day of school will be an early release day for all grades.
As a reminder, as the School Committee previously approved in February, the first day of the 2018-2019 school year for grades 1-12 will be Tuesday, August 28, 2018.
Kindergarteners will begin on Tuesday, September 4, 2018.
