• 2017-18 School Calendars Approved

    Mark your calendars and start planning your vacations!

    The 2017-18 school calendars are now available online here.

    Tuesday, Aug. 15, will be the first day of school for the 2017-18 school year.

    Under the new calendars adopted in March by the Board of Education, current teachers will return to their classrooms on Tuesday, Aug. 8, with new teachers scheduled to arrive a week earlier on Tuesday, Aug. 1.

    The final day of school for WPS students is May 23, 2018, with Hidden Lake High School (HLHS) students and Colorado STEM Academy (CSA) students starting their summer break the next day on May 24.

    Other calendar highlights include:

    • Thanksgiving Break - No school the week of Nov. 20 to 24
    • Christmas Break - Begins Friday, Dec. 22, and continues until Monday, Jan. 8 
    • Spring Break - No school the week of March 26 to 30 
    • WPS District Showcase - Oct. 17 
    • Celebrating Academic Excellence - Feb. 17 
    • WHS Graduation - May 19 
    • HLHS Graduation - May 23

    Next year’s calendars (one for the district, and one for both HLHS and CSA) provide more details than ever before about parent teacher conferences, teacher exchange dates, and early release dates for students at CSA. Because the dates vary by building, it is important to look at the calendars closely.

    At the start of the next school year, individual schools will also provide a detailed calendar to families.
