With apologies: the possible June make-up dates listed at the end of this original email were incorrectly noted as June 7 and June 8; the correct dates for further possible make-up dates are June 6 and June 7: "At the end of the year: June 6 (Thursday) becomes a full day, and June 7 (Friday) becomes a school day with a 1:00 pm dismissal."

Dear SSFS Families,

On Jan. 30, we sent out an email to all SSFS families outlining our contingency plans in case we exceeded our snow day allotment and needed to make up academic instructional days. With last week's Feb. 20 snow day, we are now at a one-day deficit, and we will need to reclaim the professional day previously scheduled for Monday, April 8.

Please note that

  • Middle and Upper School students will have a regular day of classes April 8, and division heads will reschedule professional development time for their faculty. The rotating day schedule online will be updated soon to reflect the day schedule for April 8th.

  • Lower School parent-teacher conferences WILL proceed as scheduled for April 8, and there will still be no Lower School classes scheduled for April 8. As always, Lower School families are invited to sign up with KAH for child care at SSFS if needed.


As a reminder, any additional calendar days missed due to weather would be reclaimed in the following order:

  • At the end of the year: June 6 (Thursday) becomes a full day, and June 7 (Friday) becomes a school day with a 1:00 pm dismissal. Many end-of year events on those two days would shift, though graduation and 8th Grade Recognition Night (for example) would not change.

  • Monday, May 27th becomes a school day (Memorial Day)

  • Monday, June 10th becomes a school day (no change to graduation)

  • Tuesday, June 11th becomes a school day

Interim Head of School
