ST. LUCIE COUNTY – According to St. Lucie Public Schools (SLPS) District officials, students and staff will recoup valuable instructional time lost during Hurricane Irma. On September 27, 2017, the early dismissal schedule reverts back to a regular school-day schedule, and the October 27, 2017 student holiday now becomes a regular school day as well.
“Making September 27 and October 27 regular school days provides our students and teachers with valuable instructional time,” said Superintendent E. Wayne Gent. He stated that it is important for the District to maintain this focus in order for students to reach their personal learning goals.
The 2017-2018 school calendar will be updated and posted on the SLPS homepage at http://www.stlucieschools.org for easy access by students, parents, and community members.
