Kemp ISD School Calendar Update

                               

January 23, 2024

Subject: Important District Calendar Update

Dear Kemp ISD Families and Staff,

We want to inform you of a necessary modification to the 2023 - 2024 District Calendar, in response to last week’s unforeseen school closure. While we did not anticipate the City of Kemp’s water loss and this closure event, it was necessary to preserve the wellness and safety of our KISD students and staff.

After careful consideration, the Kemp ISD School Board has decided to make the following adjustments:

1. **Calendar Change:** February 16, 2024, originally designated as a "Professional Development Day," will now be an "Instructional Day." Students are expected to attend school on this day.

2. **Extended School Day:** To make up for lost instructional minutes, the board has approved the addition of twelve minutes to each school day - six minutes at the beginning and six minutes at the end of each school day. This change is effective immediately, January 23, 2024. The morning/tardy bell will now ring at 7:39 AM and the afternoon/dismissal bell will ring at 3:41 PM.

We understand that these changes may impact your plans, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to ensure the best possible education for our students. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Sincerely,

Dr. James Young,

Superintendent
