Kemp ISD School Calendar Update


March 28, 2024

Subject: Important District Calendar Update

Dear Kemp ISD Families and Staff,

After careful consideration, the Kemp ISD School Board has decided to make the following 2023 – 2024 School Calendar adjustments:

1. **Calendar Change:** May 6, 2024, originally designated as an “Instructional Day” will now be a "Professional Development Day," for staff and “Student Holiday” for all students. 

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.


Dr. James Young,
