Next Year’s School Calendar Includes 23 Days Off
Mahwah's calendar includes a shorter February break and the second day of school off
The 2013-14 school calendar in Mahwah includes an early start date, eight-day Holiday Recess, six-day Spring Recess, and allows for four snow days.
Major features of the calendar include:
- The first day for students is Wednesday, Sept. 4. The next day, kids are off for Rosh Hashanah, then they return to school on Friday.
- February break during President’s weekend is two days long. District officials commented that parents, students and teachers in the district were not upset this year when the originally-planned week-long February break was cut short after Hurricane Sandy, so they decided to include a two-day break next year.
- Students are off on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
- The last day of school, and high school graduation, will be Thursday, June 19.
- The calendar allows for four snow days. Any additional days used will be taken away from Spring Break.
