The McPherson school district’s Board of Education met this week and finalized some outstanding items, including the new school calendar for the 2016 and 2017 school year.

Changes from the proposed school calendar for next year include taking the high school’s graduation off of All Schools Day weekend and pushing it back a week to May 20.

The first day of school for grades 1 through 12 will be a half day on August 17. The first half day for kindergarten will be the day after, on August 18, and the first half day for pre-kindergarten for the McPherson school district will be August 29.

The newly revised school calendar can be found on the district’s website at
