Oregon City, Oregon - February 9, 2015 – At their regularly scheduled monthly meeting, the Oregon City School Board voted to approve the framework for the 2015-16 school calendar. For the first time in recent memory, the school year will start in August – on the 31st.
Each year families are anxious for the calendar to be approved so that events and vacations can be planned. Typically school starts after Labor Day. Since Labor Day comes later this year, it has forced many school districts to re-evaluate their calendars and consider an earlier start.
The district will begin classes on Monday, August 31st, although specific start dates will vary by school and grade. Schools will be closed on Friday September 4th and Labor Day, September 7th and classes will resume on Tuesday, September 8th.
