School board approves 2024-25 school year calendar
School Year Calendar Approved

Last week, the WAPS school board approved the school calendar for the 2024-25 school year. 

As we mentioned previously, the 2024-25 school calendar will look a little different. Due to the geothermal construction projects at Jefferson and Washington-Kosciusko, the start of the school year will be delayed by one week. 

The school board also previously approved an adjustment to the 2023-24 calendar to end the school year a week earlier for our early childhood and elementary students only. 

Both calendars are linked below to avoid confusion:

There are a few things we would like to point out for the 2024-25 school year calendar. (Remember, this is for next year. Not the current school year.)

  • Tuesday, Sept. 10 will be the first day with all students in attendance. Grades EC-4 will have back-to-school conferences on Friday, Sept. 6 and Monday, Sept. 9. There will also be orientation activities for Grade 5 students at the middle school, Grade 9 students at the high school and all new students to the WALC on Monday, Sept. 9. 
  • The last day of school will be Thursday, June 5. 
  • Spring break has been shortened to two days — March 13 and March 14, 2025.
  • Graduation will be held on Sunday, June 8. (Remember, this is Sunday, June 8, 2025).

Both calendars will be available on our website at
