A few items to note about the coming year:

  • The first student day is Monday, August 23, 2021. 
  • Middle school and high school exams are prior to the Winter Recess and the second semester will begin when students return in January.  Winter Recess (December 20 -December 31, 2021) continues to be two (2) weeks in length and is predetermined by the Montcalm Area ISD.
  • Spring Break will be March 28-April 1, 2022 and is also predetermined by the Montcalm Area ISD.  Please note this is different from what Kent ISD decided, as they are staying with the first full week in April. 
  • The last student day is currently scheduled for June 3, 2022.  The last day of school is variable and based upon unplanned school closures. 
  • We will have two types of school days: full days and half days.  Please note the dismissal time differences found at the bottom corner of the calendar.
