The last day of school in Norwalk is set for June 22, according to Superintendent Susan Marks, who announced important end-of-year dates at Tuesday nights Board of Education meeting. Marks also said graduation dates have been confirmed. Briggs High School will graduate June 20, Brien McMahon's graduation takes place June 21, and Norwalk High seniors graduate June 22. Middle school graduations are scheduled for June 16.
Ponus Ridge Middle Schools last date, however, will be June 23. Its later end date is tied to the extra day off its students had in January when a water pipe accident caused extensive damage to the school.
Before the school year ends, the high schools still have five early dismissal days and the elementary schools have three early dismissal days.
Back-to-back snowstorms this winter caused the cancellation of several days of school. Six days needed to be made up to comply with the states 180-day school year requirement. As a result, the Board of Education scheduled three of the makeups during what was supposed to be a weeklong February vacation. It also eliminated the March 25 professional development day and added two days in June.
