Spring break in Radnor will be much shorter than usual.

The school holiday, normally a week long, will be only a few days this year thanks to all the snow days we had this winter.

Spring break originally had been scheduled to begin Monday, April 14, but under changes to the district calendar approved by the School Board, students are now to report to school on April 14, 15 and 16.

School will be closed on April 17 and 18 for an abbreviated spring break.

The last school day for students this year will now be June 17. Download a copy of the latest version of the school calendar here.

When announcing the changes to the calendar, the district said: "We understand these changes may pose an inconvenience for some families and regret any hardship the revisions may cause parents, students and staff. District administrators and school board members considered many options in an attempt to accommodate various district groups, with the overarching goal of presenting a schedule that is in the best interest of students.

"To further address concerns about this issue, student absences during Spring Break and/or June 16 and/or 17 will not be officially recorded until building or district administrators can discuss the nature of the absence with the student's parents."
