Due to recent school closures as a result of local flooding in August, and Hurricane Irma, it has become necessary to make adjustments to the instructional calendar.

In order to best balance students instructional needs with the disruption that came from the natural disasters, the School District of Lee County is proposing returning six days to the 2017-18 calendar.

The following changes are subject to board approval at the Oct. 3 regular meeting:

1st Quarter

- Oct. 16: Professional Duty Day becomes a regular school day

2nd Quarter

- Dec. 19-21: Early Dismissal Days become regular school days

- Dec. 22: Professional Duty Day becomes an Early Dismissal Day

3rd Quarter

- Jan. 8: Hurricane Makeup Day becomes a regular school day

- March 16: Professional Duty Day becomes a regular school day

4th Quarter

- April 2: Easter Monday becomes a regular school day
