Last Day of School is June 14th

Today it was announced that the last day of school for the 2018/2019 school year is officially June 14th. Below is text of the email message sent by Superintendent Marion Ginopolis:

Dear LOCS Families:

Thank you for your patience over the past few months.

Following the run of snow days in January and February to the lengthy legislative process of March, April and May, we’ve emerged with wonderful news:

The Lake Orion Community Schools 2018-19 calendar will return to its original concluding date of June 14, 2019.

(The only exception is Carpenter Elementary, whose families will be notified separately when its final date is determined.)

Lake Orion High School and Learning Options High School will return to half days on June 13 and June 14, with final exams on each of those mornings.
Pine Tree Center, Scripps, Waldon and Oakview middle schools, along with the six elementary schools (Blanche Sims, Carpenter, Orion Oaks, Paint Creek, Stadium Drive, Webber) will also have a half day on June 14.

The final resolution took time but the LOCS Administration wanted to make sure there was an official decision, approved by the Michigan Department of Education, before sharing definitive word of the final date of school.

MDE’s approval of the three-day waiver application and the recent legislation waiving the emergency days, allowed the 11 closed days to be forgiven.

Thank you again for your patience and we look forward to celebrating the next month with all of our graduates and preparing the rest of our students with a strong finish to the school year.
