MVSD School Board Approves Updated MVSD 2020-21 School Calendar

Dear Methow Valley Students, Parents, and Community Members,

The MVSD Board of Directors unanimously approved the proposed changes to the MVSD 2020-21 School Calendar. Working in partnership with MVEA and PSE representatives, the updated calendar will enable the MVSD to:

  • Work with Okanogan County Public Health Officials to make an informed decision using the best available information regarding the reopening of our schools.
  • Train “all” staff in the COVID-19 Procedures intended to keep us safe.
  • Ensure “all” staff have the time needed to fully prepare for the upcoming school year.
  • Assist students and parents as they return to school in whatever form this may take for each family.

Key changes associated with the updated school calendar include:

  • Start date of Tuesday, September 8th for all students in grades 1-12.
  • Start date of Monday, September 14th for Kindergarten students.
  • Three Professional Development Days scheduled to occur on Friday, October 30th, Friday, January 22nd, and Friday, March 26th. Distance Learning for all students on these days.
  • No changes to graduation (Friday, June 4th) or the last day of school (Friday, June 11th).
