Take the 2019-20 Calendar Survey

The Francis Howell School District has created a DRAFT calendar for the 2019-20 school year. 
The draft calendar is similar to the 2017-18 calendar, with the exceptions listed below. Click on the link below and take a minute to provide feedback by filling out the calendar survey. The survey closes on Tuesday, Oct. 31.

Semester 1

  • Order of teacher days at the beginning of the year have been changed. Staff members have shared an interest in having work days before PD and meeting days. Transition day is moved back one day to allow for one workday before the start of school.

  • Quarter 1 ends on the Wednesday before fall break, and Quarter 2 starts two days before fall break—this makes Quarter 1 and Quarter 2 as even as possible; similar to the approved 2018-19 calendar.

  • Elementary early release day for Quarter 1 is three school days before the end of the quarter; similar to the 2018-19 calendar.

  • PD days have been scheduled on election days. A number of community members have voiced concern with school being in session when schools are open to the public for elections.

  • Christmas break for teachers is a full two-week break.

Semester 2

  • Spring break is the third full week in March. Easter falls early April in 2020.


The same parameters are used yearly when developing the calendar. These calendar parameters contain an explanation of each guideline and its effect on the calendar.
