To Our Bobcat Families;
The approved 2020-2021 school calendar shows Monday, January 4th as a scheduled work day for faculty and staff, with students returning to class on Tuesday, January 5, 2021. During the November Celina ISD School Board meeting, an amendment to the 2020-2021 school calendar was approved, moving the start date for students to Wednesday, January 6th. Our staff has worked incredibly hard this semester, and this amendment allows for our staff an additional work day of uninterrupted time to plan with their teams for the upcoming semester. This amended calendar will still satisfy the 75,600 minutes of instruction required by the state for all school districts in Texas.
We recognize and appreciate the flexibility and patience shown by our families, and this important planning time for our staff to design effective lessons reflects our ongoing commitment to providing rigorous learning for all students. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
