Many Look Toward Last Day of School

April 13, 2017 ~ As summer rapidly approaches, teachers and parents both do their share of planning for the end of the school year; teachers with their lesson and testing plans and parents with the care of their children.

The Olathe School District sets their annual calendar in advance and builds in up to four days to accommodate for inclement weather or emergencies.

To aid with summer planning, here is each age group's last day of school for the 2016-17 school year:

  • May 18 is the last day of school for high school seniors
  • May 24 is the last day of school for early childhood and afternoon kindergarten
  • May 25 is the last day of school for all grade levels and is also a half-day of school

Hours for May 25:

  • Kindergarten (all-day and morning) through Grade 5: 8:20-11:40 a.m.
  • Grades 6-8: 7:50 -11:15 a.m.
  • Grades 9-11: 8-11:15 a.m.
