The calendar includes two full weeks at Winter Break. The calendar was amended in June 2020 to add the Presidential Inauguration Day as a holiday. The calendar was amended again in July 2020 to change the first day of school to Tuesday, September 8, 2020 and again in October 2020 to include the dates of the phase-in of the 50 percent hybrid model.
