Dear Marple Newtown Families and Staff,
While this winter has not been as problematic as last year, we did face several challenges that required school closure. Thus far, we have used four snow days.
As we continue through the month of March, the district must reassess the academic calendar. Meeting student instructional days is a priority. As indicated on the school calendar, the next make up day is Monday, March 18, 2019.
To meet the required 180 days of school set by the state, our schools will be in session on Monday, March 18, 2019. If there are additional school closures, the district will reevaluate the school calendar at that time.
We know that this change may affect prior plans for families. If your child or children will be absent that day, please speak with your child’s principal.
Thank you for your flexibility and understanding.
