Make-Up Schedule for Missed School Days

decorative schedule iconDue to the mandatory evacuation ordered by the governor in anticipation of Hurricane Florence, Chesapeake Public Schools was closed on September 11, 12, 13, and 14, 2018.  The following adjustment will be made to ensure we will have enough instructional time in our calendar to meet state requirements:

Five additional minutes will be added to the high school instructional day for the first semester beginning on Monday, September 24, 2018, and ending on Friday, January 25, 2019.   Please refer to the updated bell schedule for new class times at Western Branch High during this window.

Additionally, due to the loss of a instructional day on Friday Oct. 12, the school calendar has been adjusted.  Monday, November 5, originally scheduled as a Teacher Workday, was made a regular, full instructional day.  This day also marked the end of the current grading period.
