Four-day weekend for FWCS students - January 12, 2011

Record Number: 7040
Displayed from: Jan 12, 2011 , until: Jan 17, 2011

School will not be in session for Fort Wayne Community Schools students on Friday, Jan. 14. As established in the 2010-11 calendar, Jan. 14 is the last day of the first semester and reserved as a teacher work day, designed to give teachers time to work on grades and other work as needed. In the event of a school cancelation prior to Jan. 14, the day can be used as an emergency make-up day. FWCS has not yet had to cancel school this year, however, so students will have the day off. Additionally, students and staff will have Monday, Jan. 17, off as FWCS schools and offices are closed in recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

With nearly 30,000 students, Fort Wayne Community Schools is one of the largest school districts in Indiana. FWCS proudly allows families to choose any of its 50 schools through its successful school-choice program creating diversity in each school, including some with more than 75 languages spoken. FWCS offers seven magnet schools focusing on areas such as science and math, communication, fine arts or Montessori at the elementary and middle school level. In high school, students can choose from the prestigious International Baccalaureate program, Project Lead the Way or New Tech Academy as well as other rigorous academic and specialty training programs.
