D45 2018-19 Calendar & School Day Hours

The District 45 2018-19 School Day Hours and the 2018-19 Calendar are in place.

Make note of the following for the 2018-19 school year:

  • Arrival and dismissal times for the School Day and the Early Dismissal Days changed from the 2017-18 school year. The school day hours are on each school site, go to About Us or For Families and click on School Hours. 
  • Early Dismissal Day dates are scheduled for once a month instead of weekly. The 2018-19 Early Dismissal Day dates are as follows: 8/29, 9/26, 10/31, 11/28, 12/12, 1/30, 2/27, 3/13, 4/24, 5/8
  • The 2018-19 Calendar is available on the District site here. The 2018-19 Calendar Parent letter is available here

A Partial 2018-19 School Calendar was approved by the District 45 Board and sent out earlier this spring. At that time, it was shared that contract negotiations were taking place, and one of the topics for discussion was the Early Dismissal Day dates. The contract negotiations team, which included representation from the Administration, the Board of Education and the Villa Park Education Association (VPEA) teachers’ union, were pleased to report that much progress was made during the time allotted for staff to collaborate on the 2017-18 weekly Early Dismissal days. As a result of the progress made toward putting a guaranteed and viable curriculum in place, the District 45 staff has blended a schedule that will allow for both the monthly Early Dismissal days in the 2018-19 school year and the new arrival and dismissal times.
