NOTES ABOUT THE CALENDAR:

 
 

Full Year vs. School Year:

* FULL YEAR (FY) – refers to children attending a calendar year which includes Public School Vacation, as noted above.

* SCHOOL YEAR (SY) –  refers to children who are attending a calendar year which DOES NOT include Public School Vacations. Children attending SY may have the options of adding some of the vacation days, as noted on the calendar above. It also means that Fridays and Holidays may be shorter day for SY children.

*

 
 

Changes to the calendar are sometimes unavoidable. Parents will be notified of changes as soon as possible.

 
 

Substitutions for missed days: There are NO substitutions or exchanges for sick days, vacation days, or holidays.

 
 

Professional Development Days: There may be 2 full or partial days when JPL will be closed to allow staff to attend educational conferences: one Jewish Early Childhood Conferences, the other Preschool Association of Lexington Conference (see dates marked in the calendar.)

 
 

Jewish Holidays are never on-time; they are both “too early this year” or “very late this year” – and they are “never convenient.”  Since we have no control of when we close for the holidays, please join our Center for the holiday celebrations.

 
 

We do NOT automatically add days at the end of the year to make up for “snow days.”
