Important Calendar Change for Thursday, January 31st

January 29, 2019

Please read carefully for an important change to our school calendar for this Thursday, January 31, 2019.

This Thursday, January 31st, was originally scheduled as an early dismissal day for all Cairo-Durham Schools. However, due to the extremely cold temperatures we are expecting for Thursday morning, we are taking the opportunity to convert it from a half day to a two-hour delay with regular dismissal time. This will ensure that students are not waiting at their bus stops in the bitter early morning temperatures, and that we maintain valuable instructional time.

Therefore, on Thursday, January 31st, students should ride the bus or arrive at school at the same time they would for a two-hour delay. Thursday’s dismissal will occur at normal times:

  • The Middle/High School will begin at 9:35 a.m. and dismiss at 2:14 p.m.
  • The Elementary School will begin at 11:15 a.m. and dismiss at 3:10 p.m.

We appreciate your understanding in this matter. If you have any questions or concerns about this calendar change, please contact your child’s school office.
