Final 2012-2013 Providence Public Schools calendar

Last month, in this post, I was all hot and bothered about the Providence School Board's inability to approve the 2012-2013 calendar. I am now, belatedly, following up to say that the board did indeed vote on this and the final version of the calendar can be found here as a PDF and below for your school year planning purposes.

Some observations:
  • Wow, that is one fragmented September. Parents with work outside of the home, plan your vacations accordingly (doing just that earlier today is what reminded me to share the final version).
  • The Jewish holidays (Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur) are back. Wonder why? They were gone for the past 2 years (or so).
  • Not one month without at least one school day off which means...
  • The end of the year is late - June 19. I sure do want some snow after last year's no-snow winter, but let's not hope for much (nor hurricanes or any other dramatic weather or disasters) or kids will be in school for-ev-er.
Okay, back to your regularly scheduled summer. Happy first day! And longest day of the year. Go enjoy it.

  1. Supposedly the Jewish holidays will be celebrated bi-annually in the PPSD. We'll see if the pattern holds next year.
