The same week that the school district discovered that it was required by law to offer world languages in elementary schools and changed its budget plan at the last hours to accommodate that need they also realized the school calendar had an extra day.

Because of that, a notice was sent to parents alerting them that there would be no school on Friday, May 26 -- the Friday before Memorial Day.

The notice, found HERE, said only that "an extra day had mistakenly been scheduled  for June."

It also notes that a delayed opening will now be held on the day after Memorial Day, May 30th. While no reason is given in the notice, Superintendent John Ramos said on Monday night that it would be for staff to have some kind of training in response to the recent string of bias incidents that included swastikas and offensive comments found at some schools.
