Perkiomen Valley School District schools will be closed April 17-22 for spring break. Offices will be open on April 17 and 18. Both schools and offices are closed April 19 and 22. As another calendar reminder, the end of the 2018-19 school year has been moved up to June 11. Since only two of the "built-in" inclement weather days were used, the last day will move up by one day. The three half-days move up as well. They will be June 7, 10 and 11. To download a revised calendar, click here.

calendar
The Perkiomen Valley School Board approved the 2019-20 instructional calendar at the Jan. 14th business meeting. The calendar features an Aug. 26, 2019, start for school, and a June 11, 2020, end date.

The calendar for next year is very similar to the current calendar, featuring parent-teacher conferences the week of Thanksgiving (meaning a full week off for students), and a winter break spanning Dec. 23 to Jan. 1.

Half-days have been included throughout the calendar year to accommodate in-service opportunities for professional and support staffs. Spring break will begin April 8 (which is an in-service day for graduation projects) and continue through April 13.

Graduation is planned for June 5, 2020. Three snow days have been built into this calendar. If none or only some of the snow days are used, the last day of school could be earlier than June 11.
