2019-2020 Calendar Update
Posted on 02/28/2020
Please see this important update regarding the 2019-2020 Buncombe County Schools academic calendar.Dear BCS Employees/BCS Parents,

On February 20, 21 and 27, winter weather caused Buncombe County Schools to cancel school for students those days. This brings the total number of days missed due to inclement weather to 4 for the 2019-2020 school year.

In an effort to compensate for this lost instructional time, Monday, March 16, 2020, will now be a full instructional day for students. This day was originally designated as an optional teacher workday.

Please note that March 13 will remain an early dismissal for students so teachers may participate in their professional learning communities.

Also, the school year has been extended to June 3. At this time, this is the last day for students.

Please note that March and April in the mountains can still hold the potential for more snow and ice events. Further changes to our calendar could be necessary if we lose any more instructional time.

The updated school calendar is now available (PDF).

Note: Buncombe County Early College/Middle College utilize a different academic calendar

Estimado personal y padres de las Escuelas del Condado de Buncombe,

El clima invernal ha causado que las escuelas del Condado de Buncombe hayan tenido que cerrar los dias 20, 21 y 27 de febrero. Esto ha causado que el número de días perdidos por el mal clima hayan llegado a cuatro días para este año escolar 2019-2020.

Como un esfuerzo para recuperar los días de tiempo instruccional perdido, el lunes 16 de marzo será un día de clases normal para los alumnos. Este día estaba designado originalmente a ser un día de trabajo opcional para los maestros.

Por favor sepa que el día 13 de marzo se mantendrá como un día de salida temprana para los alumnos para que los maestros puedan participar en sus comunidades de aprendizaje profesional.

Además, el año escolar se ha extendido hasta el día 3 de junio. Por ahora, este es el último día de clases para los alumnos.

Por favor sepa que en las montañas puede haber potencialmente más eventos de nieve y hielo durante los meses de marzo y abril. Puede que sea necesario hacer más cambios a nuestro calendario en el futuro si perdemos más días de clases.

El calendario escolar actualizado esta publicado aquí.
