Classes at Brenham schools will have an unusual way of ending at the close of this school year…..and BISD is considering doing it again next year.
The last day of classes in the Brenham School District this year will be on Thursday, June 4th, with graduation on Saturday, June 6th. Besides going into the first week of June, what is especially unusual is that students will get four days off for the Memorial Day Weekend. Friday, May 22nd and Monday, May 25th are both school holidays, even though most working parents are only off on Monday.
BISD is circulating a calendar survey among its teachers, asking them if they want to repeat the same “end of school” setup for next year. Teachers are being asked to vote for which date they want school to end…Friday May 27th or Thursday, June 2nd. If Thursday, June 2nd is chosen as the last day of school next year, students would again get a 4 day holiday over Memorial Day Weekend…right before classes end.
The Brenham administration office says the survey is only for teachers, saying any parents who wish to comment on the proposed calendar for next year can do so during school board meetings. KWHI wants to know which date you prefer for the last day of classes in 2016.
