IMPORTANT MESSAGE: Make-up Days Added, No-school Days Moved

Dear parents and guardians,

Eugene 4J schools were closed for students for four days last week due to snow and ice. The snow days will be made up on days that originally had been scheduled to be no-school days for unpaid furlough: March 31, April 17 and 18, and May 23.

The end of the second trimester and the grading and professional development/planning days at that time have been postponed by one week.

These changes mean that 4J students will not lose any school days as a result of last week’s weather and the three trimesters will be balanced in length.

SCHOOL CALENDAR CHANGES:

  • March 13: Regular school day (was no-school staff work day for middle and high schools)
  • March 14: Regular school day (was no-school staff work day for all schools)
  • March 20: No school at middle and high schools (staff work day)
  • March 21: No school at all schools (staff work day); end of second trimester
  • March 31: Regular school day (was no-school furlough day); first day of third trimester
  • April 17: Regular school day (was no-school furlough day)
  • April 18: Regular school day (was no-school furlough day)
  • May 23: Regular school day (was no-school furlough day)

Thank you for your patience and understanding with these schedule changes due to last week’s hazardous weather.
