Earlier in the school year, schools had been closed for a total seven days due to the severity of Hurricane Irma. Students had missed an entire week of school. In order to ensure that students are given a sufficient amount of schooling, Broward County Public Schools have extended the first quarter. The start of the second quarter has been pushed from Monday, October 23rd
to Monday, October 30th
. In addition to an extended quarter, there will be a makeup day that will replace an early release day on Thursday, October 19th
. With these changes, vacations, such as winter break and spring break, will not be affected. The changes also help BCPS be in session for 180 days, as it is a state requirement. An updated calendar for the 2017-2018 school year can be found at browardschools.com/calendars.
